Despite the frantic schedule of his Fanfare tour, Thomas Gold had enough time to interview with Zoe-G from the Observation Deck of the Empire State building just days before his Roseland Ballroom performance. Completely enthusiastic and having so much to say, interviewing Thomas Gold is definitely a highlight in life opportunities.
We have the interview filmed: however, I want to clean up the audio before I show it off to everyone. So until then here is the interview with Thomas Gold on his Fanfare tour and his view of New York.
When asked about his work with a drum-line it at Governors Island this past summer in New York and what the fans should have been ready for [this past Saturday], Thomas responded,
“This time it’s going to be a Fanfare show. It’s around the Fanfare theme. We have a lot of special things going on and performances. We have a 10 guy drumline that I am working together with. So, there will be a couple of surprises and I have great expectations. The venue is just super amazing. I think that the live music and electronic work shall definitely be kept together. They do need the full stage but in 2013, fans can expect more of that. “
The Fanfare tour has only been about a month long so far, but Undrgrnd Sound wanted to know what was the most memorable moments so far?
“I think it’s the reaction. Everyday, that people are following Fanfare now: they have shirts and signs. It’s amazing to see how passionate people get about it. They care a lot about what I am putting in there and I talk to people. I talk about my shows, I talk about whats going on, my tracks and my experiences. It’s great to see that people are enjoying this. “
Thomas is such a personable guy, his enthusiasm is so obvious. I asked about what message he has for everyone going to Fanfare.
“I think it is just enjoy the music. It is all about being happy and having fun. On the outside you guys interact. Fans are so pumped up even for podcasts.”
I think it is great how much you are connected with the fans. DJ’s have become superstars and yet you are still in constant contact with your fan base.
“I try to interact as much as possible.”
For 2013, do you have any particular messages? What do you want to see happen?
“Honestly, don’t hate so much on this EDM-Genre thing. People should just enjoy what they are doing. I love what is going on in the scene. I am open for anything. Mixing up . . . small stage to festival stage.”
Okay, only two more questions. Do you have any particular message for your New York fans? This is when Thomas went from composed to amped in about .3 seconds
“Yeah, I love you guys. You guys are fucking amazing. Always the most amazing people.”
All I could say was, That is amazing.
“They should know that already.”
I think the message has been said, I just wanted to see if there was anything additional! And one more. What is Underground Sound? When you hear Underground Sound what do you think?
“I love Underground Sound. I ‘ve been making techy records before and I love this kind of stuff: like longer, extended sets. I go underground as much as possible. It is just an important part of the whole music scene.
Stay Undrgrnd. Stay real.
Background story on this interview: I showed up not even knowing that I was going to meet and even have the interview with Mr. Thomas Gold. So of course I had not brought any video or sound equipment with me. But my friends over at EDMNYC saved the day.
Thank you to David, Mel and Malak for being so freakin awesome and helping me out.
