Clifford Joseph Price (born 19 September 1965), better known as Goldie, is a British electronic music artist, disc jockey, visual artist and actor. He is well known for his innovations in the jungle and drum and bass music genres. He previously gained exposure for his work as a graffiti artist. He spent his early years shuttling between children's homes and foster care. His brother ended up in jail, but at the age of 15 Goldie encountered an art teacher who helped spark a passion which he still has today.
"God knows where I'd be without art. I can't even bring myself to think about it."
