It’s been a decent ride since Ben Gold embarked on his musical journey well over a decade-and-a-half ago. Over the course of his career so far, the London-born, Amsterdam-based DJ/producer has released over a hundred singles, remixes and collaborations, created the track for A State Of Trance 750 and possibly solidified his position as one of trance music’s tastemakers with his two-part debut album, ‘Sound Advice’ (2018/2019).
And now, after spending a month on Ibiza to draw inspiration from precious memories and new stimuli, he captures the full extent of his artistry within his sophomore album: ‘Rest Of Our Lives’.
From energetic and emotional tracks to Balearic evocations, progressive productions and even downtempo, trance-minded piano pieces, the album is a diverse ten-track offering that draws from Ben’s personal experiences and the memories he made on the island of Ibiza, all through broad-appeal tracks such as ‘Xtravaganza’, ‘Nostalgia’, ‘Same Sky Same Stars’ (with Plumb) and its official title track.
Ben Gold: “The vision for the project was to write an album that was a true reflection of who I am as an artist and where I am in my life journey. As life evolved, the album evolved with it, but it always retained its melodic, uplifting and energetic identity. I hope that anyone who listens to this album will feel that, whether they are old or new fans. And I hope it inspires them as well, since that’s what personally attracts me to an artist or song.”
