Unheard of YouTube views, peppering Beatport’s Top 10, building a rep as a remixer to the stars and delivering stamina-soaked sets from the White Island to Governor’s Island…Thomas Gold has fast become clubbing’s G-force of nature. Since storming onto the scene and riding the crest of dance music’s re-taking over of the planet, the prolifically pedigreed German has emerged as a top shelf seizer of arenas, talked about the world over.
As a spinner with the most well-thumbed of passports, Gold’s upgrading from studio to stage stimulator, including the use of live drum lines and brass sections, has dominated the essentials of must-attend dance parties: the Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Coachella, Mysteryland and Tomorrowland.
After setting standards with releases on Armada, Toolroom, Spinnin’, and Steve Angello’s Size, Gold’s consistent hitting of dancefloor jackpots had Miami anthem ‘Sing2Me’, released on Axwell’s Axtone imprint, trilling its way to Beatport’s number one spot and becoming a cornerstone of Gold’s Essential Mix. Turning Adele’s ‘Set Fire to the Rain’ into a YouTube record breaker (like his number of Facebook followers, Gold has set counters to crazy), it stood as the jewel in a remix crown of popstars and peers.
