GODER: So what are the challenges you have when you create this type of music?
DJ GOLD: I mean the biggest challenge is learning how to differentiate the different styles within EDM; I’m talking about within the genres. There’s so many different types of style’s; Techno, House, Dub, Trance, so basically that’s the hardest part. Just learning everything. The next part is making the sound. There’s a whole bunch of stuff you have to learn; it’s really a process. With other genres you can crank something out. A lot goes into it. You have eight bars, mine can only be ten seconds of the song.
