Goldie is a true misfit. The son of a British mother and a Jamaican father, the deejay and producer has established himself as an underground star in England's insurgent "Jungle" scene--a musical form featuring resonant bass lines and expressive, sometimes relentless percussion. Goldie's new CD, "Timeless," is a challenge to the boundaries of this still nascent music, notes TIME's Christopher John Farley. "Mixing elements of techno, jazz and soothing ambient music, Goldie's compositions defiantly slip the grasp of any one genre and instead slide back and forth between high-energy passages that make you want to dance and quiet interludes that make you want to assume the lotus position and meditate--or at least daydream a little. Wander in to this collection and find yourself transported to a downtown dance floor. In Tibet."
