Not many DJ’s can claim 8 years in the DJ MAG TOP 100 POLL, with 5 of those in the TOP 40 and 2 years at 22!! But Graham can.
Graham Gold and his legendary shows on London’s Kiss 100 reached out and touched hundreds of thousands of listeners across the world and together with his club night Peach, the most successful club brand ever in the capital, helped to define the musical tastes of a generation.
Yet he is still one of the most down to earth DJ’s on the planet and his commitment to the scene and to play exciting fresh new music is pretty much un-paralleled and his influence on dance music today cannot be understated.
Years of experience has taken him to all corners of the world playing for all the major brands and festivals, including Glastonbury, Homelands, Gatecrasher, Gods Kitchen, Passion, Slinky, Impulz, Earthdance, W.E.M.F., Summadayze and The Street Parade.
Graham is one of the few Thailand based DJ’s on the taste maker promo mailing list for so many record companies worldwide, and he receives tracks up to 3 months before they become available on Beatport and other internet portals. This is a huge attraction to tourists and clubbers who have heard tunes on radio shows by the likes of Tong, Sanchez and Morillo.
But he knows it not just about new music, he knows how to rock a crowd!! .
Since his recent relocation to Koh Phangan, Thailand, Graham has played many of the Full Moon and Half Moon parties as well as Thailand’s premier annual festival-CULTURE ONE in Bangkok for the last 2 years.
His radio show “TRANCEDAYZE” airs on various national FM stations around the world as well as the major internet portals. But don’t be misled by the title – 90% of Graham’s sets are house, where he covers many of the genres and this is winning him even more accolades amongst promoters.
He is now the Asia resident for Mark Wilkinson’s ever growing KIDOLOGY brand, which will also be bringing Graham to Ibiza this summer. They are also collaborating on a new house track together.
Recoverworld’s Flux Delux label picked up “Glorified” and that was hammered by Paul van Dyk, Armin and Paul Oakenfold. The follow up, aptly titled “Island Of Dreams”, was “RECOMMENDED” on Beatport and released on Total Digital. The latest production from Graham “Living In The Now” is about to drop, and watch out, this one is HUGE!! Last November saw the release of a new MIX CD -SUBMERGE 2 and is the second in the series of compilations from Fektive-the fastest growing label in Holland. He has also just signed a mix CD album deal with D-Rom for 3 albums a year. The first album is due for release on May 7th.
Graham has sold over 700,000 mix albums across various leading brands including Kiss Mix, Kiss in Ibiza, Retrospective Of House, Club Cuts, Dj’s In The Box and his own albums Gold & Delicious for Logic/BMG, GG1/GG2 for Trust The DJ, Worth It’s Weight In Gold for Bullion, and Full Of Beans for Urban Collective. There have also been covermount CD’s for M8 Magazine and Fast Car.
He has run highly successful labels such as Good As label which gave Mat Darey his first ever UK top twenty single, Koolworld which spawned the massive “Invader” and secured 3 top 20 hits on his Peach/PWL label.
Good As also managed the UK diaries of Tiesto, Armin and Ferry Corsten from 1998-2001.
Then there was also the TV!! A regular presenter for ITV’s “BPM” – an essential cult clubbing show, which took him to the biggest clubs all over the UK. Plus many guest presenter spots on Rapture TV and Clubavision as well as co presenting the still played MTV Trance Classics
Graham’s My Space has achieved 90,000 hits and his bi-weekly podcasts are going out to a regular 6000 signed up database and growing weekly.
His Facebook group GRAHAM GOLD EVENTS already has over 2500 members which get mailed about all Graham’s upcoming gigs. He is on his limit of friends on his Graham Gold Facebook account so has had to start PAGE TWO!!
Graham was the first DJ/promoter to bring (amongst others) Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Tiesto, The Flash Brothers and Mike Shiver into the UK.
He appears regularly in every leading dance music publication and was even featured in the special GOLD edition of Vogue!!
