Thomas Gold's music career began as a curious seven-year-old. Taught to play the electronic organ as a child, Gold soon found interest in digital synthesizers and from then on his passion soared. At age 15 he purchased his first piece of studio equipment—a Yamaha DX-11 synthesizer. Gold's 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. He began releasing progressive house records in 2006, dropping the collaborative Paintbootiqa EP on the Mauritius label with his cohort, DJ Björn Mandry, sharing the credit. A number of 12" releases on Haiti Groove Recordings, Ministry of Sound, and other like-minded labels followed, taking Gold up to 2010 and the high-powered gig of remixing Fatboy Slim's "Star 69" single for the Skint label. In 2012, the satellite radio network SiriusXM began airing Gold's mix show, Fanfare. In 2009 Thomas remixed Delerium’s classic “Silence” and it was named Best Progressive House Track of 2009 by Beatport. Gold has produced and remixed tracks for many leading European dance labels such as CR2, Positiva, Vendetta, and Ministry of Sound. His debut release on the Axtone label, “Sing2Me” hit the number one spot on Beatport. In 2012 his debut compilation album was released, Axtone Presents Thomas Gold. Gold also records and remixes under the following established names: Houzecrushers, Level K, Phunkk Mob and Punk People. And in addition to these, he’s worked on projects with Frank Savaro, Eric Smax, Chris Montana and more. Smax and Gold's "S_Punk" was featured several times on Pete Tong's and Judge Jules national radio 1 shows in the UK. In 2011 Gold toured extensively, performing at Swedish House Mafia’s legendary Masquerade Motel Miami, the Tomorrowland main stage, Pacha Ibiza and the Creamfields UK main stage. He has toured in Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Japan, India, Dubai, Russia, Canada, America and a host of destinations across Europe.
