Flashback to 2018. Where were you when you first heard FISHER’s breakout hit, “Losing It”? The track swept across the world as a staple in seemingly every DJ’s set and helped to ignite a wildfire of tech house that would soon follow. Four years later and the tune still cranks. To make it official, “Losing It” has recently been certified as Gold by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America).
Now, what does this mean exactly? An RIAA Gold Certified Single qualifies as this: a song that totals at least 500,00 units sold in the USA. On-demand audio and/or video song streams are counted towards the thresholds required for certification at the formula of 150 on-demand streams being equivalent to one download sale.
Tech House has experienced a massive uptick in the USA in recent years, becoming the purveying sound of many festival headline sets. And “Losing It” is still a staple in FISHER’s sets today. Cheers to FISHER and his commanding hooks. This Certification joins his acquisition of GQ Australia’s Artist of the Year Award.
