Protocol Recordings label head and producer Nicky Romero announced his “Redefine” world tour this spring. Now he kicks the concept into full gear with the release of the first episode of a three-part documentary and accompanies it with a release of a touching music video for his recent single “Love You Forever”.
“Redefine” documentary series focuses on the evolution of Nicky’s sound throughout his prolific career as first a DJ, then a producer, and now a media mogul. The first episode, “Past,” gives viewers insight into Nicky’s early experiences as an artist during EDM’s golden era. From handing out water backstage at local clubs to be closer to the DJs to attending mini-festivals to gain inspiration from fellow up-and-coming artists of the time. It also serves as a high-level technical lesson on the details and challenges of music production. Learn about Nicky’s first inspirations and behind-the-scenes information in this episode, which ends with one of the most important lessons he learned as a young artist: “As you gain experience, it’s not about the technical side, the technical side needs to be automatic…As you evolve and gain experience, you learn it’s all about the crowd – and that’s what matters.”
The first episode of “Redefine” documentary sets up viewers for the next part of the series, “Present,” which will cover Nicky’s rise as a worldwide success and label owner. It’s way more than a laundry list of accomplishments – it spreads an authentic and positive message to viewers that now is the time to begin creating whatever it is they want in life, to always “Redefine” themselves and to share their Redefine Statements with others on the website nickyromero.com . Stay tuned for the next episode!
Nicky also just debuted the touching, feel-good music video to his “Love You Forever” with Stadiumx and Sam Martin, which centers on three different stories with the common thread of how small acts of kindness can truly change a life. From children easing the workload of their single mother to a jock learning how to knit for his elderly grandson to a young couple making a life together in their first starter apartment, the “Love You Forever” video explores deeply personal and moving stories of everyday people. It ties back to Nicky’s “Redefine” concept by inspiring viewers to spread good in the world, even if just to one other person.

It’s Finally Time For KTRYN To Showcase Her Powerful EDM Style, Listen To “Be Aglow”
The rising female DJ/Producer KTRYN has just released her debut single “Be Aglow”. After dropping amazing mashups and mixtapes, she finally comes through with her first production of 2019. Beyond doubt, this heater is filled with a powerful EDM style. Additionally, the bass builds into a massive drop no one will ever forget. Therefore, I truly believe “Be Aglow” is a great starting point for KTRYN who knows how to captivate your senses either at clubs or festivals.
You might wonder who is KTRYN. Well, she has been active in the EDM scene since 2016. Born in Russia, the skillful artist moved to Germany in 1995. In 2005, she started to learn the art of DJing, opening hence the door for playing at small clubs and events. Some time later, she participated in festivals and on international events. So far, with the premiere of “Be Aglow”, I believe a Big Room sound is what will take her to the top in the coming years. Stay tuned for more!

R3HAB Delivers High-Energy Remix Of James Arthur’s “Treehouse”
One of the most prominent electronic dance music artists R3HAB has remixed “Treehouse”, a single from global superstar singer James Arthur, out now via Columbia Records (US)/Syco (UK/IR). “Treehouse” is an ode to survival and accepting that, some days, it’s okay not to be okay, because it’s what comes after that matters. R3HAB adds upbeat electronic elements to the feelgood, piano-led original, with a carefree drop instilling it with new energy. The Dutch artist’s interpretation still carries the inspiring, hopeful tone, bolstered by R3HAB’s bouncy and melodic electronic elements, making it a bonafide festival anthem. The remix for James Arthur follows R3HAB’s originals, such as “Alive” with Vini Vici, “Don’t Give Up On Me” with Julie Bergan and “This Is How We Party” with Icona Pop, accompanied by a hot streak of 2019 remixes he did for the likes of NOTD, Rammstein, Tom Walker, Sofi Tukker, Danny Ocean, Kygo, The Chainsmokers, P!nk to name a few.
“I was sent James Arthur’s latest song a few weeks ago and fell in love with it right away. I’ve always been a fan of his voice, and it was an honor to do this ‘Treehouse’ remix for him.” – R3HAB
Over the last seven years, the Dutch/Moroccan artist Fadil El Ghoul – better known as R3HAB – has established himself as a leader at the forefront of modern electronic music. His talent has been called the “future of the craft” by the likes of Forbes and Billboard, and he’s circuited the globe’s best clubs all without the backing of a formal record label. In 2017, R3HAB independently released his debut album “Trouble” through his imprint CYB3RPVNK, which amassed over a half-billion streams globally and officially placed R3HAB among electronic music’s heavy hitters. He made number 12 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 list in 2018, topping the charts with tracks like “Lullaby” and “Hold On Tight,” while his sophomore album “The Wave,” revealing more complex, emotional and experimental layers of himself, has amassed over 250 million streams on Spotify alone. R3HAB’s “All Around The World” with A Touch of Class has been recently added to Spotify’s biggest playlist “Today’s Top Hits” and just surpassed 150 million streams on all platforms since its release in April.
James Arthur is one of the biggest artists in music right now, he was recently awarded a disc for reaching 1 billion streams on Spotify with his No.1 global hit “Say You Won’t Let Go.” Only 18 records have achieved a billion streams on Spotify in history, and James is one of 10 artists globally to do this including Drake, Ed Sheeran, and Justin Bieber. In total, he has now sold over 25 million records globally. “Rewrite The Stars,” his recent duet with Anne-Marie from The Greatest Showman Reimagined, has been streamed over 250 million times, whilst his 2018 song “Empty Space” has already hit over 100 million streams. James has 22 million monthly Spotify listeners and has had over 1,5 billion views on YouTube. His 2016 album “Back From The Edge” went straight to No.1 in the UK charts and has gone multi-platinum worldwide. James is about to release his third studio album “YOU” on 18th October, featuring hit singles “Naked,” “Falling Like The Stars” and “Empty Space,” alongside new songs with features from Travis Barker (Blink 182) and Adam Lazzara from Taking Back Sunday. Fans can pre-order the album from 6th September. The 15-song epic finds the global star at both his boldest and most promiscuous, with hard-hitting lyrics, a restless rifle through musical styles and the searing vocals of someone with plenty to get off their chest.
“I have called the album ‘YOU’ as unlike ‘Back From The Edge’ which was autobiographical, my third album is not about me, it’s about YOU.” – James Arthur
