EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Thomas Gold


Thomas Gold has the right to be amped. Tonight he will be opening for Axwell during the evening’s edition of Cosmic Opera, the much hyped ultra-sensory experience that promises to weave elements of operatic tradition with electronic music. EO will be there to cover, but to put everyone even more on the edge of their seats about what to expect, Thomas sat down to discuss a bit about the event and what is going on in his world in general.

The Berlin-based producer just recently released his much lauded track with Dirty South & Kate ElsworthEyes Wide Open‘ following the great success of ‘Alive.’ The two started out being pals but found their synergy in the studio to work well and they will be playing together in Miami – definitely expect new, cool tracks to come out of that collaboration. ‘Sing 2 Me,’ one of EO’s Most Anticipated Tracks for 2012, might even be a part of that roster. Don’t hesitate – hear what Thomas has to say below!
