Protocol Recordings label head and producer Nicky Romero announced his “Redefine” world tour this spring. Now he kicks the concept into full gear with the release of the first episode of a three-part documentary and accompanies it with a release of a touching music video for his recent single “Love You Forever”.
“Redefine” documentary series focuses on the evolution of Nicky’s sound throughout his prolific career as first a DJ, then a producer, and now a media mogul. The first episode, “Past,” gives viewers insight into Nicky’s early experiences as an artist during EDM’s golden era. From handing out water backstage at local clubs to be closer to the DJs to attending mini-festivals to gain inspiration from fellow up-and-coming artists of the time. It also serves as a high-level technical lesson on the details and challenges of music production. Learn about Nicky’s first inspirations and behind-the-scenes information in this episode, which ends with one of the most important lessons he learned as a young artist: “As you gain experience, it’s not about the technical side, the technical side needs to be automatic…As you evolve and gain experience, you learn it’s all about the crowd – and that’s what matters.”
The first episode of “Redefine” documentary sets up viewers for the next part of the series, “Present,” which will cover Nicky’s rise as a worldwide success and label owner. It’s way more than a laundry list of accomplishments – it spreads an authentic and positive message to viewers that now is the time to begin creating whatever it is they want in life, to always “Redefine” themselves and to share their Redefine Statements with others on the website nickyromero.com . Stay tuned for the next episode!
Nicky also just debuted the touching, feel-good music video to his “Love You Forever” with Stadiumx and Sam Martin, which centers on three different stories with the common thread of how small acts of kindness can truly change a life. From children easing the workload of their single mother to a jock learning how to knit for his elderly grandson to a young couple making a life together in their first starter apartment, the “Love You Forever” video explores deeply personal and moving stories of everyday people. It ties back to Nicky’s “Redefine” concept by inspiring viewers to spread good in the world, even if just to one other person.

Oliver Tree’s “Miss You” Is The Funniest Music Video In Years
The new music video for Oliver Tree‘s collaboration with DJ and producer Robin Schulz will make you laugh like a drain every time you watch it. Not only that but “Miss You” sounds ridiculously catchy too!
Besides being a singer-songwriter, Oliver is a comedian as well, so it comes naturally for him to interrupt everyone’s boring lives and routines as shown in the visuals. Moreover, it’s quite hilarious how he brings on the chaos at an office, during a soccer match, and also while stealing at a grocery shop.
If you were wondering who is the clown, the correct answer is his alter ego.
As a curious note, the whole clip was directed by the artist himself. Impressively, it includes mouth-to-mouth transitions that allow you to discover a crazy and bizarre world.
When creative minds like Oliver Tree start to think out of the box, the final outcome transcends views and streams. Taking this into account, I can guarantee that “Miss You” is accompanied by one of the funniest music videos in years.
Whether you agree or disagree with this short review, I really hope you enjoy it to the fullest.

Alan Walker Remixes R3HAB’s Iconic Hit “All Around The World”
R3HAB recruits his fellow heavyweight Alan Walker for a remix of his iconic hit “All Around The World” with A Touch Of Class from 2019, which remains R3HAB’s most streamed and most certified release to date. It’s a tough act to follow, but the one and only Alan Walker puts a fresh spin on it.
Walker honors the original’s Disco influence and layers in some groovy, euphoric melodies and an energetic breakdown. “All Around The World” first became a hit with A Touch of Class’s release in 2000, and with the return of everything early-aughts, this is the perfect time for a revival so that the hit can rule clubs and festivals around the world (literally) once again.
It’s out on Virgin Records/Universal Music and celebrates half a billion streams of the original version on Spotify alone, with 30 platinum certifications globally and a brand new gold plaque in the US, confirmed a few days ago. Read below what R3HAB and Alan had to say about the opportunity to remix the track:
“My single ‘All Around The World’ recently racked up half a billion streams on Spotify. This is an incredible milestone in my career, and I’m extremely grateful. To celebrate, I’ve asked Alan Walker to work on a new version. Alan is a pioneer, and I’m glad that I trusted him with this as he came up with a refreshing and surprising take. I hope both our fans will like this new approach and will celebrate with us all around the world.” — R3HAB
“When R3HAB asked me to make a remix of this classic, I had to jump on it. I hope my remix gets the Walkers around the world in a party mood, and create new amazing memories on it.” — Alan Walker
