Club Tip CMU Approved

Approved: Goldie & Heritage Orchestra at Royal Festival Hall

By | Published on Friday 20 June 2014


Yeah, the Club Tip’s going classy this week. As part of James Lavelle’s curation of the Meltdown festival, Saturday night sees Goldie team up with The Heritage Orchestra to perform his seminal drum n bass album ‘Timeless’ in a classical fashion.

Named one of CMU’s Artists Of The Year for 2013 for their reworking of Joy Division’s music, the involvement of the Heritage Orchestra in this project bodes well. And, like that previous project, it involves members of Three Trapped Tigers, whose drummer Adam Betts is one of the safest hands imaginable for recreating those massive electronic beats live.

This is definitely worth a look – an experience outside the usual realms of dance music.

Saturday 21 Jun, Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London, SE1 8XX, £25-40, 9pm, more info here.
