I remember bagging the Promo at Black Market records (still got it with OG BM price sticker) heard Bailey play it at MHDZ sunday session in Camden just after. A track that will remain with me for ever. Play beachdrifta with Sea of tears back to back and feel the powerful emotions wash over you. Bless Goldie the Genius - Peace to all

“I love the sound of tunes that feel like they’re sort of lost"

In his interview with Fact Magazine, Burial cites 'Beachdrifta' as a track he listens to every day.

Other influences he mentions are:

Digital – Ras '78 [CHANEL9606]
TeeBee ‎– Let Go [subtitles 006]
Luke Slater - Love [12NoMu62]

All worth checking out if you haven't already

This tune has the most addicting melody I've ever heard. An incredible piano loop sucks you in before the Metalheadz flava kicks in and the bassline stumbles through the track alongside a sleepy beat(by today's standards), leaving a feeling of sadness and paranoia in its wake. The tune ends with strings slowly fading out with the piano, giving you the feeling of being stranded on a beautiful beach, alone and deserted.

"Stormtroopa" is a throw away track, not much special going on - just a mostly typical hard dark jungle joint. "Beachdrifta" on the other hand is Goldie's first masterpiece since "The Shadow" in 1997. Starting off with an epic melancholy piano and humongous Detroit techno inspired strings, by the time the bass comes in heads are ready to lose it, and they do. Chopped up breaks fly around sounding more like 1994 than 2001 and subbass as deep as the Marianas Trench pull you in deeper and deeper till the layers of sound smother you. Brilliant.
