Following Nicky Romero and Sick Individuals‘ recent collaboration “Only For You” featuring XIRA, they have just dropped four brand new remixes of this progressive vocal gem. First up is Canadian band Tennyson, which Nicky has been following for some time and privately enjoyed their music. The result is a genuinely unique, live vocal redo, fusing both male and female vocal parts for a raw and indie Downtempo rendition of the original. Bass Modulators flip the switch back to dance music with their Hardstyle version, which delivers heart-pounding basslines and triumphant synths perfect for getting your shuffle on. To round things out, Futuristic Polar Bears lend their Big Room sound to “Only For You” to make you imagine you’re on the mainstage at a festival, then Low Blow finalizes the EP with undulating basslines and groovy House melodies. Out now on Protocol, the “Only For You” remix package shows more up-and-coming talent from the Protocol crew.
After taking the world by storm with early hits such as ‘Legacy’ (with Krewella) and #1 single ‘I Could Be The One’ (with Avicii), Nicky Romero quickly proved that his talent is ever-evolving and here to stay. After launching his Protocol Recordings imprint in 2012, the renowned performer, producer, and label head continued his personal successes with a string of high-profile releases, ranging from collaborations with Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Mike Williams & Amba Shepherd, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, W&W, DallasK & XYLØ, Timmy Trumpet and Steve Aoki & Kiiara to remixes for the likes of Robin Schulz, Kygo, Rita Ora, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Jess Glynne and more. While showcasing his label’s roster via his weekly Protocol Radio show, Nicky Romero continues to innovate and evolve during these unprecedented times in the music industry. He debuted his ultra-modern “Another World” live stream concept this summer and announced the Monocule alter-ego. If quarantine has proved anything, it’s that the Protocol crew is never one to slack on new music, so keep an eye out for what’s next!

Oliver Tree’s “Miss You” Is The Funniest Music Video In Years
The new music video for Oliver Tree‘s collaboration with DJ and producer Robin Schulz will make you laugh like a drain every time you watch it. Not only that but “Miss You” sounds ridiculously catchy too!
Besides being a singer-songwriter, Oliver is a comedian as well, so it comes naturally for him to interrupt everyone’s boring lives and routines as shown in the visuals. Moreover, it’s quite hilarious how he brings on the chaos at an office, during a soccer match, and also while stealing at a grocery shop.
If you were wondering who is the clown, the correct answer is his alter ego.
As a curious note, the whole clip was directed by the artist himself. Impressively, it includes mouth-to-mouth transitions that allow you to discover a crazy and bizarre world.
When creative minds like Oliver Tree start to think out of the box, the final outcome transcends views and streams. Taking this into account, I can guarantee that “Miss You” is accompanied by one of the funniest music videos in years.
Whether you agree or disagree with this short review, I really hope you enjoy it to the fullest.

Alan Walker Remixes R3HAB’s Iconic Hit “All Around The World”
R3HAB recruits his fellow heavyweight Alan Walker for a remix of his iconic hit “All Around The World” with A Touch Of Class from 2019, which remains R3HAB’s most streamed and most certified release to date. It’s a tough act to follow, but the one and only Alan Walker puts a fresh spin on it.
Walker honors the original’s Disco influence and layers in some groovy, euphoric melodies and an energetic breakdown. “All Around The World” first became a hit with A Touch of Class’s release in 2000, and with the return of everything early-aughts, this is the perfect time for a revival so that the hit can rule clubs and festivals around the world (literally) once again.
It’s out on Virgin Records/Universal Music and celebrates half a billion streams of the original version on Spotify alone, with 30 platinum certifications globally and a brand new gold plaque in the US, confirmed a few days ago. Read below what R3HAB and Alan had to say about the opportunity to remix the track:
“My single ‘All Around The World’ recently racked up half a billion streams on Spotify. This is an incredible milestone in my career, and I’m extremely grateful. To celebrate, I’ve asked Alan Walker to work on a new version. Alan is a pioneer, and I’m glad that I trusted him with this as he came up with a refreshing and surprising take. I hope both our fans will like this new approach and will celebrate with us all around the world.” — R3HAB
“When R3HAB asked me to make a remix of this classic, I had to jump on it. I hope my remix gets the Walkers around the world in a party mood, and create new amazing memories on it.” — Alan Walker
