another world
Dance music fans are sorely missing festival and club season this year, but Nicky Romero has the next best thing up his sleeve. Hot on the heels of his stellar collaboration with Armin van Buuren – “I Need You To Know,” the Protocol Recordings boss debuts his appropriately titled “Another World” livestream concept, which engages viewers into a world of wildest imaginations and hyper-realistic worlds to complement Nicky Romero’s signature sonic style throughout his “Another World” virtual performance, packed with a lot of never-heard-before exclusive tracks from Mr. Romero himself and his label. With the most recent technology used to plan, design, animate, and bring the concept to life, anything is possible. Nicky Romero’s livestream, created and produced by Visual Lab, clearly proves that. It could open with sweeping, surreal views of a cathedral, take you on a journey through time and space, reminiscent of imaginary and far off lands, from outer space to Atlantis and beyond. Effects are unreal, possibilities are endless. As demonstrated by his brand and his own musical repertoire, Nicky has always been a highly adaptable and cutting edge artist, and “Another World” is the next concept, which falls under that criteria. Tune in to the livestream on June 16 at 9PM CET (12PM PST) here, and on June 18 for encore presentation, and stay tuned for more new music and news from Nicky Romero and the rest of the Protocol Recordings crew! In the meantime, vote for Nicky Romero in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs 2020 here.

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 collaboratoins with 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 Kygo, Rita Ora, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Jess Glynne and more. Nicky is also the production genius behind pop hits like Rihanna’s ‘Right Now,’ David Guetta’s ‘Bang My Head’ ft. Sia, and Britney Spears’ ‘It Should Be Easy,’ to name a few. Furthermore, Protocol has hit another significant milestone in 2020 with the 200th release, and we can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings!

Smells Like Teen Spirit

R3HAB joins forces with Amba Shepherd for one of his most meaningful releases yet, “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, out now on his imprint CYB3RPVNK. It’s no small feat to take on such a legendary and iconic song, but R3HAB and Amba accomplish their modern dance version with finesse. Amba’s famously gorgeous vocals serve as the forefront to a deep, sultry bassline and dark melodies, capturing the essence of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in an indie-dance context. R3HAB and Amba both weigh in on the new release below:

“Growing up, I heard all kinds of music. Some songs stuck out to me the way they became part of my youth. That’s what exactly this song is for me. ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ has always been special for that reason. Being able to work on something made by legends like Nirvana together with Amba was a great experience, and I hope our fans and listeners will enjoy it.” – R3HAB

“I’m so excited about this new collaboration with R3HAB! I wanted to make an unexpected electronic version of the iconic track, so I recorded my vocal as an indie chill demo. Just keys, subtle paddy synths and beats, and I sent it over to Fadil. He produced such an incredible track, and this is when this collab was born. It was amazing to work with him, and I look forward to more music together soon.” – Amba Shepherd

Over the last eight 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 and festivals, 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 14 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 list in 2019, 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. In 2019 R3HAB’s “All Around The World” with A Touch of Class quickly became his biggest ever record already topping 200M streams across platforms and achieving gold & platinum status in 8 countries. It was followed by “Flames,” R3HAB’s collaboration with ZAYN.

Her stellar voice has made Amba Shepherd into the darling of the electronic music scene through high profile collaborations with Hardwell on “Apollo” and “United We Are,” more recently “Dynamite” with Nicky Romero. She has collaborated with some of the industry’s most legendary names, such as Tiësto, EDX, Nicky Romero, Afrojack, Deniz Koyu, Benny Benassi, and Laidback Luke, and her vocals have graced the stage of the largest festivals around the globe, from EDC Las Vegas to Tomorrowland. 2 x IDMA nominee and APRA-AMCOS Ambassador Amba Shepherd has now amassed over 100 million streams, multiple iTunes #1’s and triple platinum sales for her ground-breaking works.

Psycho Boys Club Team Up With Hardcore Legend Paul Elstak For “Bull Kick”

Published

psycho boys club
Dutch hardcore legend Paul Elstak and Psycho Boys Club teamed up for their single “Bull Kick”, the newest release from Yellow Claw’s Barong Family imprint. “Bull Kick” should come with a warning label: not for the faint of heart. The track is a unique fusion of hardcore, bass, psytrance, and ravey techno, evoking memories of early rave days in clandestine underground warehouses. Elstak and Psycho Boys Club deliver rapid-fire kickdrums and distorted synths, making the track as hard-hitting as it can possibly be. “Bull Kick” follows Psycho Boys Club duo’s earlier “Over You,” released on Spinnin’ Records Asia, Barong Family’s debut EP “Chaos Underground,” as well as Paul Elstak’s singles, such as “Beyond Your Control” and “Soldaat”.

STREAM/DOWNLOAD

In the hardcore scene, Paul Elstak needs no introduction. His career began in 1987 and has led to a long resume of both commercial and underground hits; he launched his label Rotterdam Records in 1992 and released radio-friendly singles “Life Is Like A Dance,” “Luv U More,” “Don’t Leave Me Alone,” “The Promised Land”, “Rave On” and “Rainbow In The Sky,” all of which made the Dutch Top 40 in the 1990s. The next decade found Elstak pivoting to a harder style of music as he evolved as a producer. In 2010, he produced the title track for the movie “New Kids Turbo,” which led to him winning a Rembrandt Award for Best Title Song for the Gold-certified track in 2011. More recently, in 2017, Elstak released hits “Kind Van De Duivel” (“Child of the Devil”) and “Engeltje” (“Little Angel”) with rapper Jebroer and Dr. Phunk, both of which went collectively 5x Platinum in The Netherlands and Gold in Belgium.

DJs and producers Juyen Sebulba and Stoltenhoff teamed up for their Psycho Boys Club project in 2019, complementing their own successful careers as solo artists. Juyen previously released on Musical Freedom, Mad Decent, and Mixmash, while Stoltenhoff collaborated with Tiësto on “Lose Control,” SLANDER on “We Out” and remixed Yellow Claw. Together as Psycho Boys Club, their hard-hitting style has found a home on Barong Family, where they’ve continued to build their repertoire with a string of well-received releases.

Lyrics

I may not be your ever after
We had fun at first and moments of rapture
You wouldn’t be my first mistake
But now I’m trying my best to change my fate
And just one time
I’d love to be the first one on your mind
But no matter how it starts
I guess I’ll be the King of Broken Hearts
The King of Broken Hearts
The King of Broken Hearts

I don’t wanna be the second choice
A novelty just to fill the void
Eyes open kissing, looking for better
All the love I spent was just a ticket for never
But just for now
I’d love to be the wanted one somehow
When it all falls apart
I guess I’ll be the King of Broken Hearts
The King of Broken Hearts
The King of Broken Hearts

I sit of this lonely throne, built on heartbreak
Should I go it alone or try to tempt fate?
Under a heavy crown, made of frozen tears
Could there still be hope after all these years?
My kingdom is cracked by a spark of hope
Coming out of the black, learning to let go
The door is my heart and I am the key
Cuz I don’t want to be
The King of Broken Hearts
The King of Broken Hearts
The King of Broken Hearts
Of Broken Hearts

The King of Broken Kings
I don’t wanna be, wanna be, wanna be
The King of Broken Hearts
The King of Broken Hearts
I don’t wanna be
I don’t want to be
The King of Broken Hearts

Enjoy Deniz Koyu’s Signature Big Room Sound With Club Mix Of “Next To You”

Published

on

Big Room Sound
Back in June, Deniz Koyu released the easy summertime anthem “Next To You” and now he’s back to up the ante with the track’s official club mix. If the original was meant for listening to during breezy, poolside days with a cold drink in hand, the new club mix heats things up during balmy nights at beachside clubs while catching the eye of that attractive stranger. Koyu incorporates his signature Big Room sound with upbeat synths and some vocal distortion to the original’s emotive lyrics, introducing nighttime vibes to the carefree song. The original version of “Next To You” was the first of a two-part series, both of which tell a story in the same style of music, cover art, and music video. Whenever Deniz puts out new sounds, the world stops and listens, and we are confident that there’s more fresh music coming from him very soon!

STREAM/DOWNLOAD

Deniz Koyu is a dance music veteran who has helped to shape the landscape of progressive and electro house music as it is today with iconic club hits such as “Tung!”, “Bong” and many more. His recent work under KO:YU has included high-profile remixes of Alesso and Anitta’s “Is That For Me” and The Chainsmokers’ “Young.” He has evolved with the constantly changing landscape of electronic music, evidenced by his foray into indie-pop and house fusion with “Paradise” and the uplifting vocal house of “Lost Soul.” It follows Koyu’s prior releases “GO” on Spinnin’ Records, “Feel It” with Magnificence, and “Destiny” with Nicky Romero on Protocol. It’s always a treat when Deniz returns to the label, so keep an eye out for his next single.
