Throughout the early 2000s, the U.K.'s Harmless Records has been releasing compilations under the WATCH THE RIDE banner, featuring an established DJ or artist compiling and mixing a handpicked set of new dance music. Goldie's entry in the series proves he's an able mixologist as he compiles 21 tracks of contemporary drum 'n' bass. Under the alias Rufidge Kru (actually the moniker he used to produce his earliest songs), Goldie provides a sampling of his own more recent material; while not exactly blazing new ground within the genre, the matierial is solid, leaning more to a pop edge than previous work. The collection as a whole, though, is dark in tone, and a little menacing. Ultimately, it serves as a welcome return for an artist considered to be one of the foremost pioneers of drum 'n' bass.
