Call Of Duty League Event
London’s kickoff Call of Duty League event brings professional esports, exclusive entertainment and behind-the-scenes access to fans and gamers with live tournament-style gameplay, VIP meet-and-greets, and a headline show by Nicky Romero, a celeb contender in the Home Series’ must-see 2v2 Hype Battle.

Esports organization ReKTGlobal announces that Nicky Romero will headline the London Royal Ravens Home Series, the United Kingdom’s kickoff event for the inaugural season of the Call of Duty League on Feb. 8-9, 2020.

One of the most influential modern electronic music artists and media moguls of our time, Romero will headline the London Royal Ravens Home Series, which marks the first hometown tournament for the team in Call of Duty League’s inaugural season. In addition to an unforgettable concert experience on Feb. 8, Call of Duty superfans will have the opportunity to connect with Romero at a VIP meet-and-greet and watch him as he takes on soon-to-be-announced celeb opponents during one of the highly anticipated Hype Battles that allow the world’s biggest stars to showcase their Call of Duty skills on the main stage at league events. For more details on the event, and to purchase tickets, head here.

The Call of Duty League is a global, city-based esports league composed of 12 professional teams, representing 11 markets across North America and Europe. In its inaugural season, pro teams compete in 5-versus-5 Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare multiplayer matches, on PlayStation®4. The professional competition features the best Call of Duty esports players from around the globe, battling for the ultimate prize: The Call of Duty League Championship.

“We’re excited to bring an incredible and historic weekend filled with unforgettable performances and festivities to Call of Duty’s most loyal fans and the community as a whole,” commented London Royal Ravens Managing Director Michael’ ODEE’ O’Dell, who also serves as Chief Gaming Officer for parent company ReKTGobal. “As headliner, Nicky Romero brings incredible energy to the stage. He has strong ties to the UK and the esports community as an avid Call of Duty player and an investor committed to helping bring esports to its fullest potential. Between the action-packed tournament gameplay with Romero at the analyst desk on Sunday, and the Hype Battle and his exclusive concert on Saturday evening, fans are in for a real treat at this can’t-miss event.”


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 collabs with Mike Williams & Amba Shepherd, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, W&W, DallasK & XYLØ and Steve Aoki & Kiiara to remixes for the likes of Kygo, Rita Ora, David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Jess Glynne and more. All the while showcasing his label’s roster via his weekly Protocol Radio show, Nicky Romero continues to touch down across the globe for his incredible live performances, including residencies at Las Vegas’ Hakkasan and Omnia and forthcoming shows at ageHa in Tokio, Echostage in Washington DC, Du Arena in Abu Dhabi and more.

“For years, I’ve used gaming to unwind after long nights in the studio and as a way to stay connected with friends when I’m on the road performing,” remarked Nicky Romero. “Whether it’s during a show or on social media, I love engaging with my fans. I am honored to be a part of the Royal Ravens first Home Series event and look forward to a weekend filled with all things Call of Duty.”

The London Royal Ravens event will kick off a tournament-style format that is familiar to the legacy of Call of Duty esports and former Call of Duty World League format, which featured pool play followed by a playoff bracket. Coupled with a new points system, the updated format will deliver an impactful, competitive experience for all. In addition to the hometown London Royal Ravens team, the Home Series weekend will feature the Chicago Huntsmen, Dallas Empire, Los Angeles Guerrillas, New York Subliners, Paris Legion, Seattle Surge and Toronto Ultra.

Founded in 2016, the ReKTGlobal esports organization bridges the gap between the multi-billion-dollar business of traditional sports and the burgeoning business of esports and competitive gaming. ReKTGlobal owns the London Royal Ravens Call of Duty London franchise team and global esports powerhouse Rogue. The organization recently added American tennis prodigy Taylor Fritz, NBA All-Star Rudy Gobert and the NFL’s Landon Collins to its investor team, closed a multi-year deal with TIME’s Most Influential DrLupo and welcomed Michael “ODEE” O’Dell to the global esports organization as Chief Gaming Officer. ReKTGlobal also acquired both Fullcube, the leading platform and playbook provider of fan-based Insider programs, and Greenlit Content, a hybrid company behind some of gaming’s most popular editorial sites and viral branded gaming content, events and activations in collaboration with brands like Xbox, HyperX, Epic Games, Activision Blizzard and Warner Bros.

Skytech
is back once again on CYB3RPVNK with his new single “Bubbly”, which finds him exploring a darker but still party-ready sound. The Polish artist has become well known for his big-room, progressive style sound, which he’s exemplified on recent releases such as “Skymelody” and “Not Alone” with Twisterz; “Bubbly” fuses this with a bouncy, tech-influenced bassline and distorted vocals. Skytech continues to be one of the most exciting artists on R3HAB’s cutting-edge imprint, and he’s clearly always got something up his sleeve. This booty-shaking track will have you moving on the dance floor – even if the dance floor may be limited to your living room at the moment!

Mateusz Dziewulski – better known by his artist name Skytech – is already a household name in his home country of Poland, and the rest of the world is soon to follow. His name first appeared on the map when R3HAB discovered his original track “Tiger” and then helped Skytech to put final production touches on it, proving to be a winning team after “Tiger” skyrocketed to over 100M streams on all platforms. Since then, the two have worked on numerous tracks together via the CYB3RPVNK imprint, such as “Fuego,” “What You Do,” “Hyperspace,” “Starflight,” and more, fusing their sounds to make music that is club and festival-friendly while never sacrificing substance and soul. Skytech also remixed R3HAB & ZAYN’s hit “Flames” last year. CYB3RPVNK is off to a strong start in 2020, so keep an eye out for more music from your favorite and new artists coming soon!

Lace-up those dancing shoes, because Nicky Romero‘s Protocol Recordings just released their seriously club-friendly “Protocol Grooves Pt.1” EP. Boasting five never before heard tracks from CAMARDA & Almero, Stefano Iezzi & Joe C, GIORG & Santez, Soulvation, Mosimann & VY•DA, “Protocol Grooves Pt. 1” EP focuses on a decidedly underground, clubby sound, showcasing the label’s sonic diversity. “They Don’t Know” by CAMARDA & Almero opens the EP with a tech-house flourish that will light up any room, while “Hot” by Stefano Iezzi & Joe C and “In Your Soul” from GIORG & Santez deliver emotive vocals and disco influences from a bygone era. Soulvation’s “Gonna Make You Feel It” is both minimal and funky with its strong kick drums, before Mosimann & VY•DA close the EP with their brooding, melodic house gem “Waiting to Run.” The project is a new venture from Protocol, and it’s safe to say we are here for it! Keep an eye out for part 2.

Kaskade & Project 46 Team Up On “Chains” (A Follow-Up To Their Hit “Last Chance”)

Kaskade & Project 46 Team Up On "Chains" (A Follow-Up To Their 2013 Hit "Last Chance")
Kaskade
and Project 46 once again joined forces for their new track “Chains”, a cathartic sonic journey through the myriad of emotions that are so prevalent in our lives today. It begins with angelic vocals crooning the line “Running out of ways to run away, I cover it up, but I can’t escape,” setting the stage for a progression of gentle melodies and rolling basslines into a bouncy, big-room influenced climax. “Chains” pulls at the heartstrings of anyone who has felt trapped or restrained in life, either by others or themselves. By the time the track’s drop comes, it’s as if the chains themselves have been released, and the weight has been lifted. “Chains” is Kaskade & Project 46’s follow up single to 2013’s “Last Chance,” the opening track from Kaskade’s “Atmosphere” album and Project 46’s most-streamed single to date.

STREAM/DOWNLOAD

As a household name in electronic music for nearly two decades, Kaskade needs no introduction. His list of achievements is a mile long: 11 studio albums, 7 GRAMMY nominations, the first solo electronic dance artist to sell out both Navy Pier in Chicago and the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the first DJ to ever secure a Las Vegas residency, and the first electronic artist to headline Coachella. Less tangible but even more important has been his influence on dance music tastes and culture for generations of listeners. Often Kaskade is one of the artists who introduced now-veteran listeners to the genre, and such fans are usually fans for life. In 2019, he worked with multi-award winner Meghan Trainor on “With You” and Gorgon City on “Go Slow,” among solo releases, such as “My Light,” “Come On,” and official remixes for the likes of Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, and Gwen Stefani earlier.

Canadian duo Ryan Henderson and Thomas Shaw, better known as Project 46, is known for their melodic, progressive sound that never fails to inspire and uplift listeners. They began Project 46 in 2011 and were active until 2016, with releases on Ultra Records, Monstercat, Armada, Mixmash, and collaborations such as “Last Chance” with Kaskade, “Collide” with Laidback Luke, “Crime” with Avicii, “Daphne” with Paul Oakenfold, and “Home” with Feenixpawl, to name a few. 2020 marks the comeback of Project 46, and we are looking forward to more beautiful, vocal-driven dance tracks coming from the talented duo later this year!

R3HAB teamed up with British pop sensation HRVY for his new single “Be Okay”, a dance-pop gem that is sure to lift your spirits. With organic, breezy melodies that softly roll into a groovy breakdown, “Be Okay” evokes images of those times spent with loved ones and friends old and new that can seem so far away given the current state of the world. HRVY’s soulful vocals give the heartfelt lyrics life, and the track’s accompanying music video is just the type of feel-good content we need right now. The song sends a simple and yet powerful message – that we’re all in this together, and everything is truly going to be okay. R3HAB and HRVY weight in on the new single below:

“When Harvey reached out to me, I sent him the song, and he recorded his vocals in no time. From the first time I heard it, I knew we had something special to give to our fans. I hope they like the end result as much as we do, and ‘Be okay’ will make the quarantine period more bearable for everyone who listens to it.” – R3HAB

“I heard this song months before I recorded it, and it put a smile on my face. I reached out to R3HAB to be on the song and recorded it to see how I sounded. Everyone really liked it, so I’m super excited to see “Be Okay” coming out. I hope this puts a smile on everyone’s face during quarantine, excited for the video too, as its a homage to the fans.” – HRVY

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. Stay tuned to see what this ever-evolving artist has up his sleeve next!
