Thomas Gold is on a hot streak so far this year; the veteran producer follows up his first release of 2021, “Letting Go,” with his new track “Yesterday” in collaboration with Uplink and Matluck. Opening with piano-driven melodies and soulful vocals, these talented artists fuse their signature sounds to culminate in a dance-pop-influenced drop that feels both groovy and cathartic at once. The emotive vocals of “Yesterday” will resonate with anyone who has ever had regrets over the way they’ve acted in a relationship, playing on nostalgia and hope with wistful lyrics. This is the second time Thomas Gold and Uplink have collaborated, following their track “Strange Flutes” on Gold‘s Fanfare Records from February. Matluck previously released on Protocol with “Rise,” a collaboration with Nicky Romero & Stadiumx, and worked with Armin van Buuren on “Don’t Let Me Go.”
Over the last decade, Thomas Gold has become one of the most well-known dance music producers of his time. The German producer solidified his influence in 2008 when his now-iconic remix of Delirium‘s “Silence” was named Beatport‘s “Best Progressive House Song” of the year. Gold went on to release on major labels, including Armada Music, Axtone, Size, Toolroom Records, Spinnin’ Records, and Revealed Recordings; his crowning successes thus far have been “Magic” on Armada Music, which has over 60M streams on Spotify, and “Wildest Dream” single on Protocol, currently clocking up over 13M streams on the platform. He also worked with Instagram celebrity Montana Tucker on the music video for the hit track, “Begin Again.” His electrifying abilities as a live performer have earned him a global following and headlining gigs everywhere from festivals like Ultra Music Festival, EDC Las Vegas, Coachella, Mysteryland, and Tomorrowland, and clubs such as Pacha Ibiza, Ushuaia, Amnesia, and more. Gold also owns his own imprint, Fanfare Records, where he releases his own music as well as fresh sounds from up-and-coming producers.
