Miami Music Week is down to the 10-day countdown and it’s about that time to start setting your plans in stone. Miami will be home to not only the fans but an ultra-stellar group of all-star artists, Thomas Gold being one of them. Gold and his camp have revealed his various parties throughout WMC/MMW and of course, Ultra Music Festival.
Friday, March 15 marks the kick off party at Space with “Thomas Gold Presents Fanfare” featuring special guests Feenixpawl & Otto Knows. The following night, Saturday, March 16, WALL welcomes Thomas Gold and Friends before he makes his weekend one appearance at Ultra on Sunday, March 17 with a performance on the “Megastructure” stage.
With a brand new year ahead, Josh Cohen, better known as Stereoshock, has jumped into 2013 with a pretty solid landing so far. Just releasing his remix of NERVO and Hook N Sling's "Reason," the young producer is only continuing to prove he's serious about his work and has no intentions of slowing down. With that said, we here at Joonbug are proud to host Episode # 44 of Electric Nightlife, Cohen's podcast show that began just one year ago and has since received major playtime around the world as well as special guests such as Sandro Silva, Starkillers, and W&W.
Thomas Gold rocked NYC this summer at Governors Beach Club and now he's making his return announcing his biggest NYC show along with a full North American tour schedule. In the new year, Gold will take his "Fanfare World Tour" across North America hitting hotspots like Ruby Skye in San Fran, LIV in Miami, and the famed Roseland Ballroom in NYC on January 26!
One of the core moments throughout the entire “Fanfare World Tour” has been Gold's preparation for his brand new track “MIAO.” Just in time for the second leg, the track is finally ready to be appropriately unleashed to the world on Calvin Harris’ Fly Eye Records on December 25th exclusively through Beatport. If you've been keeping up with Thomas Gold, this is one to get excited for!

Named Breakthrough DJ/Producer of 2010 by Axwell and Rising Star 2010 by Beatport, Thomas Gold exploded onto the scene last year with impeccable production and the mixing skills of a seasoned veteran. The German producer’s wildly successful career has produced multiple chart-topping tracks that can be heard every night in clubs around the world. Incorporating bassy drumrolls with anthemic vocals and progressive beats, Thomas Gold has created a unique signature sound that sets him worlds apart from the rest of the over-saturated EDM market.
We had a chance to chat with him before his show in Tallahassee, Florida last week about his meteoric rise to fame, his remixing techniques, and how it felt to be chosen as this summer’s face of the Axtone label.
Summer may be coming to a close but Governors Beach Club still has its speakers blasting.
This weekend, the beach-side venue on Governors Island will host back-to-back concerts, with John Digweed and Danny Tenaglia headlining on Saturday, and Thomas Gold on Sunday.
Get ready for yet another weekend of musical mayhem on our favorite rager island!

Week after week, Electric Beach provides us with the best Saturday sounds in New York. This Saturday, continue the hot streak with Project 46, a Canadian electro-duo with a flare for hit remixes.
Thomas Shaw and Ryan Henderson, the members of Project 46, have created a progressive house sound all their own. Building on poppy synths and smooth transitions, the duo has found success in their remixes of Deadmau5’s “The Veldt,” Dirty South and Thomas Gold’s “Eyes Wide Open,” as well as in their own original productions.
Project 46 will bring down the house at Santos Party House this Saturday night. Check out its mixes below:

Governor’s Island, a short ferry ride off the tip of New York City, has only recently turned into one of the biggest EDM hotspots of the Northeast. This summer’s lineup has dramatically increased and improved upon last year's. There were bigger names, a stronger setup, and even more shows. Governor's Island has already seen such stars as Benny Benassi, Laidback Luke, Dash Berlin, and Alesso this summer. Additionally, Thomas Gold and Gareth Emrey will be also be headed to the once abandoned island in the coming months.
Ten miles of darkness and 2000 cars separated us from the festival we had only dreamt about. As we stared forward, excited and anxious, there was a faint flicker towards the sky and then the familiar explosion of fireworks in the distance. A roar ripped through the desert from the cars around us. Indian chiefs and their topless girlfriends yelled and cheered out their windows, as packs of neon spattered fur boots ran by on foot. This was the scene I had heard so much about. The one that would save dance music events
Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival has consistently been remarked as the premier Electronic Music festival in the country. With steady competition from Ultra Music Festival , and the multitude of other events that have developed in the past few years, claiming that title is quite a feat. Insomniac’s founder, Pasquale Rotella, has rose through the ranks of California promoters to a point of utmost success. He has absolutely earned his stripes, with the immense scale of his events and consequences this sometimes brings. The risk involved with such massive gatherings as these has made it necessary for Pasquale to impose a new standard for safety at these events, both at the gates and in the festival. In both appearance and functionality, EDC proved to be nothing less than the world-class event that was beckoned for.
After four trying years of playing music for anyone who would listen, Thomas Gold burst onto the scene in 2012 with his massive hits like “Sing2Me” and “Eyes Wide Open.” A gifted producer and seriously talented DJ, Gold’s live performances have captivated EDM lovers around the country and solidified his place at the top of the electronic totem pole. We applaud him for his strategic straddling of two major EDM labels, Size Matters (think Steve Angello, AN21, Max Vangelli) and Axtone Records (think Axwell, Dirty South, Michael Calfan), successfully storming the scene with both companies in order to gain maximum exposure. But Gold seems to have finally chosen a side, seeing as he was selected to create Axtone’s 2012 compilation - “Axtone Presents Thomas Gold."
With the insanity of Ultra Fest raging and rollicking throughout the collectively rabid masses, the chaos shall inevitably continue (and expand) with the onset of the weekend! Miami—fully in the throes of musical ecstasy and riotous carnal whims—is gearing up for a weekend of party infamy. It is the inevitable culmination of 10 days of music, debauchery, and the youthful American spirit—a deluge of fiesta!
More than you average, run of the mill weekend; ULTRA weekend is comprised of 21 bashes—featuring the sickest tunes at the most bangin’ spots—in what is truly the most grandiose swan song in Festival history!
