On his dramatic new single “Remember,” German beatmaker Thomas Gold tells a tale of love-at-first-rave. “Just wake me up before the sun delivers the light / I want your eyes to follow mine,” sings co-writer Kaelyn Behr, as Gold builds massive crescendos of pulsating synths and arpeggiated strings.
In the track’s literally transportive music video, a handful of unsuspecting strangers are beamed to a wild Gold concert while riding a mystical EDM elevator. “The song is based around the theme of a couple experiencing a night they’ll remember forever,” Gold tells Rolling Stone. “For this video, we wanted to create a twist on reflecting on the past summer’s great memories. All I can say is I’d love to ride in that elevator!”
Gold has been on quite a ride lately: Last June, the Berlin native released the compilation LP Axtone Presents Thomas Gold. He made it to Number One on the electronic music store Beatport with the track “Sing 2 Me,” and he also earned more than 15 million views for his remix of Adele’s 2011 ballad “Set Fire to the Rain.”
“Remember” is out now on Axtone Records, and available at iTunes. Gold is currently in the middle of a massive, globe-spanning tour, and he’ll welcome 2014 with a headlining show on New Year’s Eve at Pacha New York. Check out Gold’s full list of tour dates at his official website.
