Truth continues to bring only the best dance music to South Africa with the arrival of the 20-something trance genius Ben Gold in September. As if world class trance wasnt enough of a draw-card, the event will also see the launch of DJ Speedy’s new mixed album “The Trance Room”.
At just 25 years old Ben Gold is one of the most multi-talented names in the electronic dance scene. Ben combines a highly acclaimed career as a leading studio engineer with that of one of the brightest young stars in the trance scene, playing at some of the world’s leading clubs alongside world class DJ’s who all regularly fill their CD wallets with his latest works.
A versatile producer who has seen tracks featured on leading compilations such as Ministry Of Sound’s Trance Nation Harder, Trance Nation Deeper and Europe’s biggest dance compilation, Dream Dance. As well as regularly winning plaudits such as Armin Van Buuren’s “Tune Of The Week”, Above and Beyond’s “Tune of the Week” and often featured in Mixmag as their “Tune Of The Month”, Ben’s productions are also consistently featured on leading radio stations such as Radio 1, Galaxy and on leading radio shows, including ASOT by Armin van Buuren, Club Life by Tiesto and TATW by Above and Beyond.
After spending the majority of 2009 writing, producing and engineering tracks for other major artists, Ben Gold launched his new guise ‘Be:Gold’, and delivered “Starstruck” and “Sunstroke” which became festival favourites with Armin, Tiesto & Gareth Emery. Ben’s remix of Andy Moor & Ashley Walbridge – Faces gave him complete global recognition which led Armin to quote “He is really on fire right now”.
Supporting Ben on the trance floor on the night will be local talents DJ Speedy, James Damian and DJ Morgan.
DJ SPEEDY has a reputation which precedes him- the man i s a local legend. I’ve spent countless nights being led on a journey by the masterful Speedy at a host of clubs in SA. He will be launching his brand new double disc album titled after Truths now infamous dance floor: THE TRANCE ROOM on the same night!
