The newest release from the Protocol Recordings camp is a heavy-hitting collaboration from Sunstars and D.O.D titled “Morph”. With a relentless bassline and serrated synths leading up to a thrilling drop, “Morph” starts off strong and finishes as an absolute dancefloor slayer. One should expect nothing less from these artists behind the track – the trio Sunstars has made a name for themselves through funky, catchy beats, while D.O.D is a veteran producer and the premiere purveyor of the UK’s future jack music trend. “Morph” has already been heavily supported by Nicky Romero during this summer’s festival season, and now it’s coming through speakers all over the world. While this is Sunstars’ fourth release on Protocol, D.O.D has made his official debut as part of the family with “Morph.” Both D.O.D and Sunstars performed at the epic 5 Years of Protocol showcase with Nicky Romero and friends during October’s Amsterdam Dance Event. Prepare to be blasted into party mode with Morph!

The Italian trio of Andrea, Alberto and Luigi first broke onto the scene as Sunstars in 2014 with their first release on Ultra Music, titled “Reckless.” They quickly followed it with a massive remix of Benny Benassi’s “Let This Last Forever,” which landed them a slot performing at the iconic Ministry of Sound in London. After that gig, Sunstars has swept in a whirlwind of production and remix opportunities: “The Blitz,” which was a collaboration with Swanky Tunes; teaming up with Merk & Kremont for “Eyes,” and doing an official remix of Bob Sinclair’s “Someone Who Needs Me.” Most recently they put out the bouncy, catchy hit “Ghetto Funk” on Protocol, and they have more new music up their sleeves. The collaboration with Sunstars on “Morph” was D.O.D’s first release on Protocol, but he is hardly new to the scene. His boundary-pushing sound, coined “future jack,” has earned him releases on major labels including Spinnin, Size, Axtone, and Mad Decent. He’s equally as comfortable behind the decks as in the studio and made appearances at some of the world’s best festivals this year, such as Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, and Balaton Sound in addition to an always packed global club schedule. When two powers like this come together, it’s no wonder that “Morph” is an absolute smash. Stay tuned for what both of these talented artists come up with next.

Let Barong Family Transport You To The Crazy Nightlife Of Thailand With This Album!
After a three-part series of mini-releases, Barong Family‘s highly anticipated ‘Hard in Bangkok’ LP is finally out in full force! Although travel is limited for many listeners right now, the album will whisk you away to Thailand’s capital city, where 14 artists of the Barong crew gathered to hang out, exchange ideas, and as a result of the production camp, made new music. “Hard in Bangkok” brims with its spirit, from the cacophonous and frenzied theme of hardstyle-influenced, hard-hitting tracks like “Tom Yam Disco” from Sihk and Stoltenhoff to the down-and-dirty, booty-shaking vibe of RayRay and Crisis Era’s “Naughty.” There’s even “BKK to LA,” which is Rawtek & LNY TNZ’s trap answer to vocal bass. Yellow Claw makes appearances on four tracks, opening with “Supernoize,” that opened the album’s tracklist and announced it as a single release back in January; following up with “Beat Your Mother” featuring Radical Redemption and Lil Texas, “Let There Be Bass” with Dither, as well as “Free Your Mind” with Crisis Era. Barong Family pulled off a label-wide album with flying colors, and we can’t wait to see what exotic location inspires their next one!
Jim Taihuttu and Nils Rondhuis are the talented duo behind Yellow Claw, the electronic music artist project that has been changing the game in bass music since 2013. Their heavy, hip-hop-influenced, and club-ready sound began on their early tracks like “DJ Turn It Up” and “In My Room” ft. Ty Dolla $ign & Tyga – which collectively are about to surpass 300M streams on Spotify alone and both have been certified Gold. Yellow Claw’s 2015’s debut album “Blood For Mercy” hit #1 on Billboard’s Heat Seekers Chart, Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart, and scored an Edison Award – the Dutch equivalent of GRAMMY. They haven’t slowed down since, with a packed tour calendar that included last year’s epic takeover of the LA’s iconic Shrine Auditorium to a crowd of 7K people, and their work with Barong Family label. Stay tuned for more new music from this ready-ready crew coming this year!

Thomas Gold & Teamworx’s Ode To Electro House, “We Remember”
Electronic music icon Thomas Gold teamed up with Israeli heavyweight producers Teamworx for their new single “We Remember”, a nostalgic but hard-hitting ode to the OG of the electronic genre. Abandoning any previous penchant for melodic sounds, Gold and Teamworx employ minimalistic bass and mechanical synths to drive the track’s climb to an uncompromising drop. “We Remember” is simply made to be played on huge stages that can support the immensity of its sound, making it a guaranteed festival-friendly tune. The new release follows Gold’s Universal Music single “Get Up” with Eagle-Eye Cherry, and Teamworx’s collaboration with Dannic “Bump N’ Roll.”
Over the last decade, Thomas Gold has become one of the most well-known dance music producers of his time. The German artist solidified his influence in 2008, when his now-iconic remix of Delerium’s “Silence” was named Beatport’s “Best Progressive House Song” of the year. Gold went on to release on major labels including Armada, Axtone, Size, Toolroom, Spinnin’ and Revealed; his crowning success thus far has been “Magic” has almost 60M streams on Spotify. His electrifying abilities as a live performer have earned him a global following and headlining gigs everywhere from festivals like Ultra, EDC, Coachella, Mysteryland, and Tomorrowland, and clubs such as Pacha, Ushuaia, Amnesia and more. The Israeli exports and label veterans Teamworx first exploded onto the scene with Corey James and their track “Make the Crowd Go,” which received massive support from industry heavyweights and is still played by Steve Angello in his live sets. They’ve collaborated with Nicky Romero himself on “Champion Sound” and “Deep Dark Jungle,” as well as remixed his “Only For Your Love” and “Ring the Alarm.” In 2018, Teamworx played at EDC China as well as Protocol’s showcase at ADE, and this summer performed at Ultra Korea. As always, the Protocol family has plenty more up their sleeves coming soon, so keep an eye out for what’s next!
