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.

“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.

Nicky Romero’s Tune “Stay” Will Take You Back To Your First Love
Nicky Romero showcases his softer side with “Stay”. Drawing upon the style of his 2019 releases like “Love You Forever” ft. Sam Martin, “Sometimes” with DallasK, and “Distance” with Olivia Holt, Romero trades in driving basslines and big-room synths for gently undulating instrumentals and a gently progressive drop in the new track. The Protocol label head pairs the dreamy melodies with emotive vocals, producing lines like “why don’t we stay, and not get older like we’re supposed to” that evoke the nostalgia of youthful romance. “Stay” follows Nicky’s club-ready “I See” released in January as Romero’s first single of the year.

Featuring a future-house inspired groovy bassline and dreamy topline melodies, the sultry and smooth voice acts as the addicting icing on the cake for “Body Language.” Madison Olds joins forces with Jack Trades after charting on Canadian Hot AC radio and opening for the likes of Willie Nelson, Kacey Musgraves, Neon Dreams, and more. “Body Language” follows Jack Trades’ “Sideways” in November and is his first release of 2020.
