ABOUT THOMAS GOLD:
Thomas Gold is a Berlin-based DJ and producer who within the last
couple of years has released a string of smash singles, played the
planet's foremost clubs and festivals, remixed some of the biggest pop
acts in existence, and garnered praise from a whole host of his
Although Thomas has been building momentum
since his first releases back in 2006, his run of original productions
in 2010 and 2011 have been a key factor in his staggering recent
success. And looking over the labels he has worked with in this
time—some of modern club music's most widely recognised—should only
emphasise this point.
Mark Knight's global institution
Toolroom have welcomed Thomas for a trio of singles—"Marsch Marsch",
"The Button" and "Work That / Kananga". Legendary Dutch imprint Spinnin'
hosted Thomas' link-up with Alex Kenji, "What's Up". He followed up
"Areena", his collaboration with David Tort and David Gausa on Phazing
Records by linking up with label head Dirty South on "Alive". And then
there was "AGORa", his debut release with Steve Angello's Size, which
was followed soon after by his massive rework of Fatboy Slim's "Star 69"
Thomas' sound can loosely be described as
progressive house that draws in influences from electro, trance, techno,
minimal and tribal. His music is known for his heavy and impeccably
constructed drum sounds, catchy melodies, massive chord sections and, of
course, his energetic and uplifting builds.
His thirst and
talent for DJing, coupled with the aforementioned run of singles, have
seen him amass an enviable list of bookings, just take a look at his
2011 by way of example. In the first half of the year Thomas bagged a
spot on the bill for Swedish House Mafia's Masquerade Motel party during
Miami Week, and then returned to the city in June to headline Space.
SHM then welcomed him back to play their stage at the Las Vegas Electric
Daisy Carnival and their residency at Pacha in Ibiza.
the rest of year? That took in festival slots at Creamfields and
Tomorrowland, clubs gigs at Sankeys and Ministry of Sound Club in the
UK, and a special New Year's Eve set at Kool Haus in Toronto together
with Steve Aoki. And as part of Steve Angello's Size Matters events,
Thomas played to massive crowds at Governors Island in New York (as well
as the after party at Pacha), Fontainebleau in Miami, and Escape From
Wonderland in California, culminating in a giant New Year's Day party at
White Wonderland in LA.
The other integral part to this
story, of course, has been Thomas Gold's remixes. Sander van Doorn, Jay C
& Felix Baumgartner and Moguai have all come in for recent
treatments, while Thomas teamed up with Axwell to great effect, remixing
Hard Rock Sofa & St. Brothers' "Blow Up." Perhaps most striking of
all, though, have been Thomas' pop reworks. Not only did he do a number
on Lady Gaga's "Judas", but his majestic version of Adele's "Set Fire To
The Rain" is currently sitting somewhere in the region of 12 million
views on YouTube. (Yes, you read that right.)
As a further
sign of the faith that fellow artists have placed in him—and indeed the
incredible year he has just experienced—Thomas was name-checked as a one
of the breakthrough acts of 2011 by Swedish House Mafia, Sander van
Doorn, Cosmic Gate and Axwell, as DJ Mag quizzed them as part of their
annual Top 100 coverage.
Looking further ahead and Thomas'
GoldCast, started out in May 2011 as a platform for Thomas' tastes, will
undoubtedly continue to flourish alongside his weekly radio show. The
early stages of 2012 will see Thomas step to Axwell's Axtone label for
his debut full release "Sing2Me".
After scoring an Essential New
Tune accolade with their previous collaboration ("Alive"), Thomas and
Dirty South's "Eyes Wide Open" has just hit the scene and is shaping up
to be equally well-received.
"The last 12/18 months have been
fantastic for me," says Thomas in summary. "I really feel that I've
found my sound. It's great to get the support from a lot of my peers and
to get the opportunity to work alongside some of my idol DJs and
producers has been a real honour. Most importantly, the fans seem to be
into what I'm doing, whether producing or what I'm playing in my
sets—their reaction is why I love to do this!"
