Nicky Romero‘s ventured into new territory by releasing his country-inspired release “Rise” with Stadiumx featuring Matluck back in August. Now the track has received two huge remixes from dance music legends Afrojack and Thomas Gold. Each version has a unique take on the song’s upbeat rhythms and organic instrumentals: Afrojack turns up the heat with his signature driving house basslines and dynamic percussion that turns “Rise” into a hard-hitting club track, while Thomas Gold’s melodic approach creates a dancefloor-friendly, uplifting experience reminiscent of festival progressive anthems. Both versions keep the soulful and heartfelt lyrics, ensuring that “Rise” keeps its inspiring essence. The Afrojack’s and Thomas Gold’s remixes are out on Nicky Romero’s imprint Protocol Recordings, which has been exploring new avenues of sound recently by incorporating various music genres into their productions.
The “Rise” remixes bring together three electronic music veterans, each with their own unique success story. Nicky Romero has quickly progressed from a young musical prodigy to one of the most prolific names in modern dance music. Romero’s resume is an impressive and lengthy string of hits including iconic originals and collaborations with artists including Avicii, Calvin Harris, NERVO, ZEDD, Steve Aoki and more. Through the constant evolution of his sound and reinvestment in emerging artists on his label Protocol, Nicky has proved his ability to evolve with the ever-changing landscape of electronic music. Afrojack has been a household name in electronic music over the last decade with classics like “Take Over Control” and “Jack That Body,” but he’s not done yet; in addition to running his label Wall Recordings, the Dutch artist has just released his new “Press Play” EP, featuring music that’s more explosive than ever. “Press Play” also features Nicky Romero’s remix of Afrojack’s “One More Day.” Thomas Gold is known for his trance, progressive and tech house based productions such as “Take Me Home,” “Believe” and “Begin Again” and remains an influential force in electronic music today.
