Thomas Gold has the Midas touch and with a debut compilation, Beatport No.1 and a string of huge remixes and tour dates, 2012 is undoubtedly his year.
'My sound is progressive house music, with influences from techno, tribal and trance music. This will be the sound of my compilation, reflecting the sound of when you see me live'. Thomas Gold.
DJ and Producer Thomas Gold is pretty happy, he is about to release his debut compilation on Axtone. It's not just that either, his most recent track on the same label, 'Sing2Me', was a bona fide Miami big tune. It first appeared in DMC's Miami Buzz Chart and then The Swedish House Mafia played it exclusively when they sat in for Pete Tong on his Essential Selection. It then went straight to the Beatport No 1 spot on release. Given all of the above along with the fact that Thomas's stadium touring and remixing schedules have been immense of late, it really seems Thomas has the Midas touch and this is his year.
Thomas has been on a steady ascension over the last few years whilst developing his powerful and unique progressive meets tech meets main room house sound. It was tracks like 'Marsch Marsch' on Toolroom, 'Alive' and 'Eyes Wide Open' in collaboration with Dirty South on Phazing that originally shined a spotlight on him. However it was 'AGORa' with Steve Angello on Size that helped cement his status as a world class producer. It wasn't long before he was counting DJs as varied as Tiesto, Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Laidback Luke and of course the guys from Swedish House Mafia as fans of his productions.
'I did a couple of exclusive original tracks which will go on the compilation only. Speaking about names, there will be "Fanfare", "The Beginning" and "Circles"... I'm very excited about that as I've been testing those tracks in some of my live DJ sets and they got great responses!'
The album also features tracks from some of Dance music premier house producers including Moguai, Dirty South, Hard Rock Sofa, Michael Calfan, Henrik B, Adrian Lux, Norman Doray, Sander Van Doorn, Steve Aoki, Digitalism, David Guetta and Afrojack.
'Axtone Presents Thomas Gold' will be accompanied by an extensive international tour with iTunes exclusive released on May 28th and physical on June 4th.
