TOBY Returns To Put A Pep In Your Step With New Single ‘Gold’

Gold Coast producer TOBY has returned this week with a brand new track, Gold. The funk driven nu disco-esque track features the vocal assistance of Perth dup Otiuh and it’s a welcoming toe tapping track sure to put a pep in your step.

Gold is the first taste we’ve heard in a small while from the GC production maestro. It’s super catchy and as TOBY outlines below, it’s one of those tracks that came together quite easily and just flowed naturally to the final product.

“This song came about quite organically. I had the basic demo of drums and bass notes on my laptop for quite a while, and not long after sending it over to the Otiuh boys they had something ready for me. I instantly loved the hook which has that fun and energetic bounce to it.

Around the time that we made the track I was listening to a lot of Kaytranada’s album “Bubba” which is filled with quirky synths and insane percussion so I really wanted to try and get the same sort of feel as that in ‘Gold’ but with my own twist.” – TOBY


It’s a super fun tune to listen to and you can’t help but smile and jive away from the moment you press play.

“To me ‘Gold’ is a song that will hopefully motivate people to go do or get something, it’s a feel-good track which gives you that certain energy to achieve something, especially during the isolation period.” – TOBY

“We gravitated toward this beat as it had that instant groove factor. I recorded the idea for the hook for this within a few minutes of hearing it. The track was written just after the holiday period where the celebrating seemed to continue well into January, while we were still finishing our EP, playing live shows and working our day jobs. GOLD is the sound of those couple of months; celebrating life & trying to keep that hustle at the same time.” – Otiuh

Gold is available now, everywhere.
