Nearly three years after their hit collaboration “Harmony,” Nicky Romero and Stadiumx have once again joined forces for their release “Rise”, featuring singer/songwriter Matluck. On “Rise,” the Protocol label boss and Hungarian duo fuse the organic instrumentals of country music with the upbeat, dynamic rhythms of progressive house, all complemented by Matluck’s heartfelt and soulful vocals. Whether belting out this track over the radio or during a live set, “Rise” is guaranteed to bring a smile to your lips. The new track rounds out a busy summer for Nicky Romero, who released his dance/pop collaboration “Me On You” with Taio Cruz as well as the Tomorrowland-themed club anthem “Here We Go” with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike only last month. “Rise” is out on Romero’s imprint Protocol Recordings, the premiere destination for cutting-edge electronic music.

Alan Walker, Dash Berlin & Vikkstar Collide On “Better Off (Alone, Pt. III)”
In an unusual collision of forces, Norwegian superstar Alan Walker teams up with veteran producers Dash Berlin and British gaming sensation Vikkstar for “Better Off (Alone Pt. III),” for which the talented creative minds gave new life to one of the 90s most iconic dance tracks. “Better Off (Alone Pt. III)” contains the original’s catchy vocals together with a spotlight on the “I think you better come along” lyric, while progressive melodies and euphonious basslines are infused into the classic Eurodance beats to make for a unique combination of past and present.
It is also the third installment of Alan Walker’s “Alone” series, which began in 2016 with the title track “Alone” and continued with 2019’s “Alone Pt. II” with Ava Max. This meaningful trilogy shares a common thread of positivity and unity, encouraging listeners to support and look out for one another on and off the dance floor (you can find content related to the series under the #BetterComeAlong hashtag).
On this project, Alan – known for always helping young talent, took Vikkstar – who was brand new to producing music, under his wing as part of his personal mission to lift up talented artists and bring their music to the world. The producers from Dash Berlin loved what Walker and Vikkstar were doing with the early versions of “Better Off (Alone Pt. III)” and wanted to get involved in it instantly.
“Teaming up with Dash Berlin and Vikkstar for ‘Better Off (Alone Pt. III)’ has been a creative whirlwind. We’ve reimagined a beloved 90s gem, infusing it with a contemporary twist that’s bound to resonate with fans old and new. This collaboration embodies the magic of music – a fusion of nostalgia and innovation.” — Alan Walker
“Proud to be a part of this momentous team up with dance music icon Alan Walker and legendary YouTube phenomenon Vikkstar, together with Dash Berlin producers Seb & Eelke celebrating 25 years of their monster hit ‘Better Off Alone’. Reborn and reworked as a magical future classic as part of Alan Walker’s celebrated ‘Alone’ saga, ready to make the whole world sing along with us once again.” — Ryan Fieret from Dash Berlin
“Dance music has been something I’ve loved for over a decade, simply as a fan. Meanwhile, attending festivals all over the world, from Tomorrowland to EDC Las Vegas to Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Alan and I have been friends for over five years, always making an effort to meet up whenever we’re in the same country. He encouraged me to venture outside my comfort zone and start DJing firstly, then to experiment with music production. Being able to work on this project with a close friend has been a great experience, with lots to learn. I’ve been quietly producing & working on my own music. I’m very excited that my first-ever release will be a collaboration not only with Alan but also with Dash Berlin. Both artists have a legendary reputation and it’s been an honor to join them.” — Vikkstar
