And so to this week's drum 'n' bass offering, an above-average release from the new wunderkind of the genre, unfortunately thrown into the shade by Lewis Taylor's dazzling debut.

Making a drama out of OJ's crisis

There are movies that get bought in as part of a larger package of films that a TV company actually wants, then languish unseen for years until either desperation or scandal force them onto the screen. Goldie and the Boxer, receiving its UK premiere tonight (12.20am C4), has all the hallmarks of being one of those. This sentimental made-for-TV yarn of a cute child and a large man who hits people for a living was made in 1979, produced by and starring OJ Simpson.

POP MUSIC / Pop Music

It was jungle up against the rest of a hostile music scene for most of last year but now, thankfully, things seem to be heading for a truce. Just look at the inroads into respectability the drum- and bass-driven style has made in the last 12 month s: a weekly show on Kiss FM, two television documentaries (not to mention the BBC2 effort recently, showing drug counsellors in the toilets at a jungle rave all-nighter helping the teenage lads combat drug abuse). Hey, the scene has even spawned a few hi ts.

British soul: the new generation

D-INFLUENCE came together from the club and gig scene in 1990 - talented musicians who create a warm groove that stands up live as well as on the disco floor. Following on from their hit single 'Good Lover', the debut album Good 4 We (East West) comes out on 3 August. Plenty of sax, vibes and flute flesh out the basic drum and bass, and Sarah Ann Webb provides the soaring vocals. The name? They picked it 'in a hurry' - it means, er, 'The Influence'.
