Oh boy, have I got a mix for you all today. All those 10 readers! You should consider yourself lucky. If you haven't listened to this mix yet, today is going to be your lucky day! You are a tad late though: this mix is 10 days old, and has already amassed 25k+ plays! That's seriously unheard of, but it is because of the man behind the mix, and the legend that he is. The man, if you haven't noticed it yet, is Goldie, and he made a mix, and it's the 905th edition of the Resident Advisor mix series. It's been a long awaited mix, but it's a worth welcome. And it's one that caught my eye, not only because it's a mix made by one of the legends of the Drum and Bass scene, but it's also a fucking GOLDIE mix. You cannot just skip that shit without acknowledging it,
The legend is Goldie, and I've been in awe for many years. I've seen many documentaries and shows he's been in, even seen him in Snatch, and even bought his book. And of course I bought his albums, that's just standard. He's been a pioneer since day one, and he still is, to this day. He's been a huge influence in the Drum & Bass scene for many decades, and he has cemented his position in the scene as the pioneer he is.
He does not need to show his skills anymore, and he has earned enough credit to retire, but can you see a man like Goldie retire? That's not in his nature, and he will continue for as long as he can. And with his latest mix for RA, he shows that he's the don, the OG, the boss. He plays his own records (of course) but also the majority of records are from his label, Metalheadz. With a few other records thrown into the mix, just to spice it up too. But it's a glorious mix, one you would need to hear, if you haven't already!

There's a lot to take in here. I do love myself a bit of Drum and Bass, but there's a lot of unknown records in here. Don't be alarmed, I know the majority of records in this mix, but it's only a handful of records that I've not encountered before. But that's OK. At least it's not too late to appreciate music, eh?
The mix contains a lot of classics, and they are a warm welcoming sound in our ears. It's always amazing to hear all-time classics being played, and especially when it's done by DnB's finest connoisseur, monsieur Goldie.
It's yet another amazing mix, with awesome records. And some versions of all time classics I've not even heard before. It's amazing to hear the master behind the decks, killing it again. The songs are all solid, and the flow is very nice. It starts off slow, at a steady pace he's increasing the fire. It goes up slowly, and it's pleasant for your ears.
The song that blew me away the most, was IIk's 'The Sound Of Falling'. My God, that bass nearly blew my speakers into a billion pieces! And when that song kicked in when I was driving home yesterday, I had to stop on the hard shoulder, because the bass was blowing me away! I was in shock, just because I could not believe something this filthy could reach me and punch me in my face that hard! That song is hard as hell!
Another epic mix by Goldie. If you are looking for more good mixes, there are roughly 904 other mixes on Resident Advisor's Soundcloud channel. Worth checking out. But for now, just enjoy this masterpiece by the legend himself, Goldie.
Is this the best Goldie mix out there? Well, I've heard a lot of his mixes over the years, and I have to say 'yes'. Agree or disagree?
