‘Inner City Life’ is a classic 1994 drum and bass track from Goldie, one of the defining dance records from the decade as featured on the Timeless album.

With Record Store Day coming tomorrow (what’s happening live in the shops around Ireland), the enigmatic producer has remixed the song especially for Record Store Day on a release by Goldie that features the originator rebuild his own track.

It’s on a limited run of 1,500 12” 180 GSM vinyl at participating RSD shops so look out for it.
