Q Nightclub presents Forms featuring
The first superstar produced by the breakbeat jungle movement, Clifford Joseph Price -- better
known by his stage name Goldie -- popularized drum'n'bass as a form of musical expression just as relevant for living-room contemplation as techno had become by the early '90s. Initially gaining exposure for his work as a graffiti artist, Goldie became one of the first personalities in British dance music, his gold teeth and b-boy attitude placing him leagues away from the faceless bedroom boffins that had become the norm in intelligent dance music. For the first time, England had a beat maestro and tough-guy head who could match the scores of larger-than-life hip-hop stars America had produced, and the high profile of drum'n'bass as the first indigenously British dance music made Goldie a figure of prime importance.
Price also gained fame as an actor, appearing in Guy Ritchie's Snatch and several other films, most notably the James Bond film, The World Is Not Enough.

Forms is a Pacific Northwest-based event series aimed at bridging the gap between the music we're currently most excited about and the timeless influences that paved the way for these sounds to flourish. Our mission is to explore not only the existing gamut of genres, but also the spaces in between, as well as the threads that connect influence and creation.
