Instagram celebrity and singer Montana Tucker has opened for the likes of Pitbull, Flo Rida, and Lil Wayne, but her next booking takes a different turn as the star of Thomas Gold‘s music video for hit track “Begin Again.” Tucker dances the viewer through the video, first on a neighborhood street, and next in a pink wonderland of a bedroom. She also lip syncs the male vocals, giving the video an interesting twist.
Gold makes a cameo a minute in, handing off car keys to Tucker who dances the video away from there. Gold spoke with DA about “Begin Again,” as well as working with Tucker for the video.
“‘Begin Again’ marks kind of a milestone for me. I went back from the downtempo stuff (like ‘Magic’ and ‘Dreamer’) to a more uptempo vibe, but the production still has a crossover approach. To me, this kind of defines the 2018 summer sound, and I am super excited about the video we did – it features Montana Tucker all throughout, in different scenes and places. I met her when we shot the video, and apart from her super cool acting, it was a lot of fun to work with her!”
Gold released the track on Armada Music, and it showcases his diverse production abilities as he goes in a different direction with his sound. Gold is kicking off his summer with an Asia tour, and will certainly be dropping the catchy track throughout.

Trance fans have their newest fixation thanks to Kaion and Sam Valar’s newest collaboration, “Windseeker.”
“Windseeker” is reminiscent of the old school trance produced by Armin Van Buuren with its pulsing chords, uplifting vibe, and mystical vocal accents. Valar sent DA an exclusive quote about the track, talking about the process leading up to perfecting the final product.
“Kaion and I are really pleased with how the track turned out. It took a few months to get it just right, but that’s what allowed us to create something with such driving energy. The original idea was to spark the listener’s emotions by juxtaposing classical elements in the break (like bells and strings) with huge chords in the drop… and I think it does just that. We’re excited to release it, and we can’t wait for what’s to come on Nanostate Music.”
While Valar is relatively new to the scene, Kaion has had a multitude of releases on labels such as Armada, Black Hole Recordings, and Ride Recordings among others. He has since started his own record label named Nanostate Music, which “Windseeker” is being released on.
