Legend is often the word people use when they talk about Graham Gold-one of the most influential and groundbreaking DJ’s on London’s Kiss 100 between 1990 -2004. There at the beginning of house music in 1987, he spent 5 years in the DJ Mag Top 40, when it truly meant something and has sold over 700,000 mix albums (6 x Gold Discs- British Phonographic Institute Artist). He has played in clubs and festivals in over 150 cities across 50 countries including Pacha, Amnesia, Space, Ultra Music Festival, Glastonbury, Homelands and Summadayze alongside DJ’s such as Carl Cox, Sven Vath, Steve Lawler, John ‘00’ Fleming, Roger Sanchez, Nick Warren, BT, Deep Dish, Paul van Dyke, Tiesto, Ferry Corsten to name just a few! And of course, there was and still is, his own brand, Peach, one of the most successful club nights in the U.K.
Fast forward to 2020, and whilst those heady days of global travelling are gone, he still remains very much a recognised name in the industry. He plays his deep house, progressive house, progressive trance and melodic techno at most of the cool parties on Koh Phangan, where he now lives. 2019 saw Graham grace the decks in Goa, Lisbon, Ibiza, Amsterdam and the U.K.
Recent productions and remixes on Asymmetric, Bequem, Coldharbour Dynamica, Endemic, Jungle Funk, Krafted, Moon Island and P&S Music have helped cement his transition from a world-famous trance DJ into a cool underground house/techno DJ. He is currently remixing his big track from 1997, ‘The Lost City’ which will also have a DJ Lion remix and will be out in March 2021 on Berlin’s Patent Skillz label. Also, 3 new tracks have just been signed to Ballroom records in Berlin and are coming out in February 2021.
Graham previously ran the Koolworld, Peach and Good:As record labels where he took numerous tracks from the underground and turned them into commercial successes. One of his biggest singings was Mat Darey’s ‘Liberation”’ which made the UK Top 20. For 3 years, Good:As managed the UK & Ibiza diaries of Armin, Tiesto and Ferry Corsten from 1998-2001. He was also a sought-after TV presenter and hosted the clubbing TV show ‘BPM’ which aired on the UK’s number one commercial channel as well presenting a few shows from WMC for MTV.
Graham has been a DJ his whole life and lived through disco, soul, jazz funk and was there at the beginning of the house music phenomenon. In 1985-1986 after years on London’s Pirate radio stations he presented the soul show on London’s Capital FM ahead of his move to Kiss 100FM. His real ‘craft learning years’ were at Gullivers in London’s Mayfair from 1980-1989 where he played 6 nights a week, 7 a hours a night to the capitals movers, shakers and the biggest artists in black music. It’s no wonder clubbers and the whole industry call him a legend! He is to be found in the global online dictionary WIKIPEDIA.
