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.

R3HAB Collaborates With ZAYN And Jungleboi On “Flames”
Hot on the heels of his recent single “All Comes Back To You”, R3HAB once again breaks genre barriers with his newest collaboration and perhaps the biggest one to date – “Flames” featuring ZAYN and UK-based Jungleboi. Produced with R3HAB’s golden touch, the two powerhouses give piano-led”Flames” the best of both worlds – soothing electronic beats and basslines and ZAYN’s infamously sensual vocals, letting the emotive performance captivate every listener. “Flames” expertly demonstrates R3HAB’s ability to continuously evolve his sound while staying true to the artist’s dynamic and unique style that has earned him a devout following of millions of listeners around the globe. R3HAB and Jungleboi met in London in 2017 and worked on “Flames” together ever since.
“I was working on the ‘Flames’ song for quite some time together with Jungleboi when we got the call from ZAYN. The result is absolutely epic. I couldn’t be more proud of the result and look forward to sharing this amazing tune with the world.” – R3HAB
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.

Just a few days ago, Russian music producer The Brig polished a gem of Hip-Hop called “Sixteen”, this single is taken from Agent Green’s latest album, ‘Colossal’.

Jack Trades & Kayrae Express The Struggles Of A Bad Relationship With New Track “Sideways”
Canadian producer Jack Trades teams up with singer/songwriter Kayrae for their new single “Sideways”, an emotionally driven dance-pop crossover track that will be your “getting over it” anthem. The single infuses organic, breezy house melodies with chilling vocals, melding into a gently undulating bassline that feels both uplifting and melancholy at once. “Sideways” will resonate with listeners of both electronic and pop music who have ever had a hard time getting over someone. The track was inspired by both Jack and Kayrae’s experiences in past relationships, and the realization that sometimes the most powerful move is to truly let go. The two artists explain more about the meaning behind the new single below:
“Sideways to me is a very special song because Kayrae and I wanted to write something real and relatable in relationships. We all deserve to be happy, and it is important to recognize that and how we should truly learn to let go, if required. The lyrics of the song truly touches on what one is really going through inside but having a hard time expressing it.” – Jack Trades
“This song comes to me from personal experience where I have been in a bad relationship, stuck, not knowing where to go and hoping that one day it will all work out. It was easy during the writing process because everything just flowed and came very naturally.” – KayraeSTREAM/DOWNLOAD
Jack Trades made his debut on the scene in 2017 and has since made a name for himself with his brand of easy-listening, melodic dance-pop crossovers. With singles on Thrive, Armada, and official remixes for Adam K & Soha, Dropgun, and Late Night Alumni, Jack has a strong start to what promises to be a very long career.

BONNIE x CLYDE Drop Urban Vocal Bass Tune “Curse” In The Midst Of Their “Bad Behavior” 2019 Tour
BONNIE X CLYDE return with their newest single “Curse”, a dark and sultry vocal bass track that draws inspiration from the duo’s hip hop rock music background. With its riveting guitar riffs, moody basslines, and BONNIE’s emotive vocals, “Curse” weaves a compelling tale all the while providing plenty of energy for the dance floor. This single follows BXC’s September release “Bad Behavior.” Check out what BONNIE X CLYDE have to say about their inspiration for “Curse” below:
“Inspiration for this song sonically came from our background of loving hip hop, rock, and electronic music. Heavy guitar riffs, lots of bass, lots of vocal chops/vocal manipulation. It was also inspired by the thriller movies we love to watch. We envisioned a girl in the backseat of a car while a man drives up to the top of a lookout point with the moon bright over a 50s style car but things go wrong when the man turns evil and the girl falls victim. She’s looking through the rearview mirror, back at herself wondering if being in this position is worth all of the emotions she is going through. The song is a journey of becoming aware of the energy you want to have around you. It’s dark but uplifting, and intense but sultry.” – BONNIE X CLYDE
Dynamic producing and vocalist duo BONNIE X CLYDE have mastered the golden formula of creating music that is both emotionally riveting and dancefloor friendly. Their signature “vocal bass” combines BONNIE’s gorgeous voice with their melodic basslines and forward-thinking production. With new music and their “Bad Behavior” 2019 Tour underway, BXC have an exciting future ahead of them. Stay tuned to see what is next for this unstoppable duo.
