Thomas Gold and Raiden reveal orchestral release, 'Someone New'

Following the release of tropical-leaning “Seventeen,” Thomas Gold is continuing to push the boundaries of his sound with new release “Someone New.” Gold teamed up with South Korean mainstay Raiden for the release, and not only is it the duo’s first time working together, but it is Gold’s first time working with an Asian artist.

“‘Someone New’ is very special to me – first because it’s my second release this year on Protocol Recordings, so I’m happy to be on Nicky’s label again,” Gold told EDM All Day. “Second, because it is my very first collaboration with an Asian artist. Raiden is a big name in his home country, South Korea, and I really love his productions. I remember that, when we met each other for the first time in person in Miami during Winter Conference 2019, we talked a lot of production stuff, and we had tons of ideas regarding our collaboration. It all started with a rough vocal demo which I received early 2019. I created a rough production draft with the basic sounds and melodies and sent it to Raiden. After meeting up in Miami and discussing our ideas, he took the layout and continued working on sounds and the allover arrangement. Then we got to the point where we would send back and forth versions to discuss details and to finalize the production. I think we made a really nice song/track, perfect for the summer festival season, and I’m excited to have it out now!”

The track itself features a pop vocalist and initially lures the listener in with catchy crossover appeal. The drop takes an unexpected but sonically delightful turn with orchestral loops bouncing euphorically amidst upbeat synths. The duo have also put out an extended mix of the track, which kicks up the energy even more, priming it for the main stage.

“Someone New” is out now Nicky Romero‘s Protocol Recordings.
