Thomas Gold has nailed the formula for catchy festival house tracks that lure listeners in and captivate far past a song’s conclusion. What many do not realize is that the producer’s foray into music production was heavily influenced by the tech house scene, which hasn’t always been apparent with his feel good releases.
In 2018, Gold returned to his musical roots with the release of a tech house alias AU-1. His AU-1 project has been characterized by darker releases with tech house undertones, and the producer is back with his third original under the alias titled “You Got Me.” The eight-minute release transports the listener to the earlier days of house music, with house kicks propelling the record forward. Vocal chants add an energetic accent to the track, remaining the consistent glue that keeps “You Got Me” connected as the song dips into electro territory halfway through. The track is out now on NYC house music label, Strictly Rhythm.
