Nicky Romero teams up with British duo Third Party for their new collaboration “For The People,” which follows in the vein of Nicky’s recently reinvented club-oriented sound. Featuring a dynamic intro with a catchy vocal riff, Romero and Third Party steadily up the ante on the buildup. The drop is a high-energy rollercoaster of driving beats and hard-hitting basslines, making the track a universal record for the club and festival circuit. “For The People” is already a highly anticipated piece after both artists played it at this year’s Tomorrowland; it was also used in the namesake “Ultra Miami 2022 – For The People” official aftermovie. The release follows Nicky’s “Techtronic” and “Myriad,” which laid the foundation for his forthcoming club-oriented EP. On the other hand, Third Party is known for their collaborations with Martin Garrix on “Lions In The Wild” (49M on Spotify), Steve Angello on “Lights” (10M), and more hit solo singles like “Free” or “Live Forever.”
After taking the world by storm with early hits such as “Legacy” with Krewella and the #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, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, W&W, Timmy Trumpet and Steve Aoki 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, and with his annual “Nicky Romero & Friends” ADE showcase and the launch of Monocule alter-ego, he keeps proving his ability to turn into gold everything he touches.
Making waves across the dance music industry as acclaimed producers, DJs, and label owners of Release Records and Release Deep imprints, the UK duo Third Party has amassed more than 100M global streams across two hugely successful studio albums – “HOPE” (2017), and “TOGETHER” (2019). Further cementing their reputation in the studio via collaborations with Steve Angello (“Lights”), and Martin Garrix (“Lions in the Wild”), the duo have also stepped into official remix duties for the likes of Tiësto, Swedish House Mafia, Armin van Buuren, and Sigma. Performing at several iconic venues and festivals, such as the Tomorrowland’s Mainstage, Ultra Music Festival, Creamfields, A Summer Story Festival, Medusa Festival, Alexandra Palace, Brixton Academy, a Ministry of Sound label night residency, in addition to supporting Swedish House Mafia – and many more – Third Party have also branched out into their own range of sold-out “LIIIVE” shows in recent years, showcasing their dynamic diversity, using synths, drum machines, and sample pads to thousands of fans each time. With the pair now working extensively on their third in a trilogy of studio albums, recently unleashing singles such as “Joy” and “Never Get Enough,” Third Party head deep into the finale of 2022 and beyond as one of the most exciting talents in the electronic scene.

Ainonow’s Debut EP ‘Exile’ Combines Dark & Minimal DnB
A groundbreaking new artist emerges as rising dark, minimal DnB producer Ainonow makes his debut with the release of his forward-thinking ‘Exile’ EP. Serving as the launch point for his induction into the New England-based Goop Troop Collective, this innovative project is set to redefine the boundaries of the Bass music genre and captivate listeners with its unique sonic journey.
“My message is simple and it’s connected with why I make art. My hope is that listening to my music is a cathartic experience for my listeners and a way for them to feel seen and understood. I want it to connect them emotionally to their darker feelings and realize that it’s okay to feel these emotions, it’s part of being human. I also want it to act as a conduit so that they can channel this energy into something helpful, comforting, and somewhat healing.” — Ainonow
Ainonow’s ‘Exile’ EP is a scintillating blend of his broad range of influences and techniques, combining cutting-edge production techniques with a deep understanding of sound design. His debut offering explores uncharted territories, crafting aural landscapes that push the envelope of production and experimentation. Seamlessly blending elements from various electronic music genres including, but not limited to, Drum and Bass, Halftime, Wonky, Trap, UK Bass, Glitch, IDM, Post-Industrial, Hip-Hop & Rap, ‘Exile’ is sure to give listeners and new fans an unparalleled auditory experience.
Kyle Kroeck is at the helm of the enigmatic music project Ainonow. His musical journey began playing the viola in an orchestra at the age of nine, where he began to fall in love with music. However, the classical world alone was not enough to satisfy his musical curiosity. Swirling in and out of bands while playing bass guitar, he experimented with different styles until eventually discovering underground electronic music and Hip-Hop. Inspired by the hypnotic beats and hard-hitting Bass of these genres, he dove into electronic music production and the infinite timbres permitted by this new approach to music creation.
With such a diverse background and range of influences, Ainonow’s tracks traverse a broad spectrum of sonic landscapes. Combining elements of dark and heavy DnB, broken beat halftime, and experimental Bass music, he takes his listeners on a musical journey soaked in organic textures. As one of the most forward-thinking, rising artists in the world of underground electronic music, Ainonow’s music speaks to the power of experimentation and the limitless possibilities of creative expression.
