Florian Picasso & Raiden's New Release "Hanabi" From UMF 2017

Last month, Florian Picasso and Raiden joined Nicky Romero on the main stage at Ultra Music Festival amid his electrifying set. As a fluid, uplifting melody began to permeate the Miami air, Nicky called out “these are some of the most talented guys I know in the scene right now” before the track sent the crowd into a blissful frenzy.

This track is none other than “Hanabi,” the newest release from Florian and Raiden on Protocol Recordings. “Hanabi“‘s vibrancy gains momentum throughout its entirety, with progressively energetic drops that are guaranteed to bring a crowd to their feet. Both Florian Picasso and Raiden have cultivated dynamic, captivating sounds, and “Hanabi” blends them into a seamless masterpiece. The collaboration happened when the two were in Florian‘s studio in Cannes, and Raiden began experimenting with an idea that Florian had showed him. “We both noticed that our ideas interlocked together, so after a several minutes we were already working on it at full throttle. However, the track now sounds pretty different compared to the first demo but we are really happy with the final result!” says Raiden of their creation. With the summer season already in full swing, rest assured that you’ll be hearing “Hanabi“‘s uplifting synths more and more.

Florian and Raiden are among Protocol‘s premiere talent, and their collaboration is an exciting happening for the label. “Florian and Raiden are both great talents obviously. We have been working with them for a while so to hear they were hitting the studio together made us very happy. This collaboration is exactly what Protocol is hoping for we work with new talent…to seek the opportunity to explore yourself musically and create something amazing with likeminded artists,” says Protocol‘s A&R and Creative DirectorJorik van de Pol. “Hanabi” comes after a steady stream of releases from both artists on Protocol Recordings, including Raiden‘s cathartic “Heart of Steel” and Florian‘s inspiring “Final Call.” Florian also released on Spinnin‘ and Musical Freedom this year, Raiden opened the main stage at Ultra Music Festival twice this year, and both artists were key players in Protocol‘s showcases at the Amsterdam Dance Event and the Miami Music Week this year. With such impressive accomplishments already under their belts, these two rising stars have even more remarkable feats ahead of them. Raiden just made his premiere appearance at Fabrik, and Florian and Raiden will both grace the Protocol stage at Balaton Sound later this summer. The undiscovered talent of Protocol‘s roster of young artists is part of what has made the label so ubiquitous since it’s founding, and it’s undeniable that their strategy is working.
