Thomas Gold: Show Preview

Berlin producer/DJ Thomas Gold makes and plays the type of tunes that make club light techs feel like they earned their paychecks. Gold's selections — an assortment of original productions, bootleg edits, and mashups — are a style of build/climax/breakdown/climax progressive house tunes that practically beg the control-booth staff to ride the strobe lights. Gold plays it unabashedly populist, melding swatches of pop-leaning dance music (Lady Gaga, Calvin Harris, Swedish House Mafia, Avicii) with more aggressively driving electro-house inflections, finished with trance's climbing melodies and playful synth stabs. Explorative moments of minimal tech-house or soulful deep house will be absent, but fans of stadium-sized, pounding tracks will find Gold's enthusiasm contagious.
