Goldie, born Clifford Joseph Price, is an English musician, DJ, visual artist and actor from Walsall. Initially gaining exposure for his work as a graffiti artist, Goldie became well-known for his pioneering role in the 1990s UK rave scene as a producer. The artist became influential in musical styles such as jungle and breakbeat hardcore, and he popularised drum'n'bass as a form of musical expression. Goldie founded Metalheadz Records, which released material from a legion of crucial jungle artists, including Photek, Doc Scott, Dillinja, Source Direct, Peshay, J Majik, Alex Reece, Lemon D and Optical.
Aside from music, he has had roles in Guy Ritchie's Snatch and the James Bond film The World Is Not Enough. He has also appeared on a number of reality TV shows, including Maestro, where he learned how to conduct a symphony orchestra, and Goldie's Band: By Royal Appointment, where he put together a band of unknowns to perform at Buckingham Palace. He was awarded an MBE on the Queen's 2016 Honours list for services to music and young people.
