Protocol Recordings label head Nicky Romero and powerhouse veteran Florian Picasso have teamed up for “Midnight Sun”, a Progressive House anthem that will make your soundtrack to the upcoming festival season. Drawing from both Nicky’s progressive melodies and uplifting vocals as well as Florian’s signature, groovy instrumental sounds, the track evokes feel-good, carefree vibes that will last long after its final notes. “Midnight Sun” draws to a big-room crescendo at its drop, making for a guaranteed dance floor smash that you’ll be hearing played out at every festival on your list. Check out what the guys have to say about their second collaboration, as they’ve already worked together in 2017 on “Only For Your Love”:

“Working with Florian is always a pleasure, and we have a ton of fun in the studio. From the moment we started on this record I knew it was special and it all finally came together when we connected in Miami for Ultra. I’m hoping the fans will love it as much as we do.” – Nicky Romero

“‘Midnight Sun’ has a lot of my own style, but Nicky took it to the next level and really helped the record to get to its full potential.” – Florian Picasso

Nicky Romero has quickly progressed from a young musical prodigy to one of the most prolific names in modern dance music. He is not only a talented DJ and producer but also the label mogul of Protocol Recordings and a mentor to the up-and-coming artists whose careers he helps to cultivate. Romero has both high-profile originals and hit collaborations with artists including Avicii, Calvin Harris, NERVO, ZEDD and more. His latest releases have spanned the spectrum of electronic music, including his recent “Ups & Downs” with W&W, “Ring the Alarm” with David Guetta, dance/pop cross-over “Sometimes” with DallasK, featuring XYLØ, and remixes for Martin Garrix and Jess Glynne. Through the constant evolution of his sound and reinvestment in emerging artists, Nicky has proved his ability to evolve with the ever-changing landscape of electronic music. Nicky’s collaboration with Florian Picasso takes us back to the roots of the prominent progressive sound.

Florian is synonymous with a high-octane style of dance music that focuses on larger-than-life, unrelenting riffs and raw textures and is squarely focused on the dancefloor. It’s evident from the perfect company he keeps in his release schedule that he’s an artist with high standards and one whose output is piquing the interest of electronic music’s uppermost elite. After being a good friend of Martin Garrix’s for some time, Florian collaborated with the young superstar to produce the massive Make Up Your Mind: a turbo-charged, glitchy, rowdy slice of electro house. The track received over 2M plays in just three weeks after release, cementing Picasso’s rapidly rising status and introducing him to a vast new audience in the process. Above all, though, he’s staying grounded through all this success.

Into The Light by Nicky Romero
Nicky Romero
is kicking off 2021 on a positive note with the release of his new single “Into The Light, a true Progressive House jewel for which he teamed up with Protocol talent Timmo Hendriks and Arizona-based singer/songwriter David Shane. Opening with upbeat piano melodies layered over a steadily building bassline, “Into The Light” reaches its crescendo with a goosebump-inducing drop. Shane’s soulful vocals serve at the emotive cherry-on-top for a track that sees Nicky returning to his signature sound after 2020’s pop-oriented Universal Music debut “Nights With You.” On the other hand, “Into The Light” follows Timmo Hendriks’s single “Memories,” featuring Jordan Grace.

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 last summer and launched the Monocule alter-ego. If quarantine has proved anything, it’s that the Protocol crew is never one to slack on new music.

Now celebrating over 2 years on the label, Dutch artist Timmo Hendriks first made his debut on the label with 2018’s “In My Head,” with Lennart Schroot, followed by “Thinking About You” as part of Protocol’s “Miami 2019” EP, which has currently garnered over 3M streams on Spotify. His next releases, such as “Magical” with Lindequist, “By Your Side” with Jordan Grace, or “Be Alright” with Marc Benjamin, continued to show increased energy and a more mature production style. Hendriks’s other notable tracks on Nicky Romero’s label include “Keep Me Close” with Dash Berlin and “Deserve My Time” with Trilane. He is quickly becoming a household name and veteran of the Protocol team. Keep an eye out for what’s next!

There’s no doubt about what a fantastic 2020 Klipr has had with music. His 6-track EP ‘Lockdown’ saw him head down a slightly heavier Tech-House route, and now he is back with a banger EP called ‘Final Hourreleased a week ago.

On this occasion, Klipr explores the sonic energy of Progressive House. The ‘Final Hour’ EP opens with the intro track “All Your Love” which exudes a very harmonic note and sets the tone for the next tunes that follow. Directly after is “Alone” featuring a vibe with airy synths and vocals, followed by “Be Together.” Coming up, “Touch My Body” is a track that brings a sensual atmosphere, especially with lyrics and the instrumentation used by Klipr.

The last track from the EP is “New Place,” with its positive and refreshing message, the artist brings a sense of newness which reminds us that we’re moving into a New Year and hopefully things get better than they currently are. As a whole, ‘Final Hour,’ from start to finish makes the listening experience different while keeping the energetic vibes and consistency.

Keshav Bhardwaj aka Klipr, Founder of Streamin’ Music Group says “I started 2020 with ‘Lockdown’ EP, so it felt fair to close the year with another. I’ve grown as an artist this year and ‘Final Hour’ shows the same. From start to finish, my vision was to create a cumulative vibe from all the music I’ve produced in 2020.”
