While many drum ‘n’ bass artists shun the media spotlight, Goldie thrives on it. This former graffiti-tagger of Scottish and Jamaican derivation is better known for his relationships with Björk and supermodels, his fight with Tricky, and his gold-capped teeth than he is for his music. On 1995’s sprawling, melodramatic double-CD Timeless, this thirtysomething programmer electroplated his speedy jungle beats with prog- and ambient-derived material, welding occasional house diva vocals on top. Due out in January, Saturn’s Return will reportedly include self-vocalized autobiographical tales of his early life in foster homes backed by classical orchestrations and his new import single with self-important rapper KRS-One. At 9:30 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1831 14th St. NW. $15. (202) 667-7960. (Steve Kiviat)
