Two of the biggest names in dance music come together to make a real and timeless Progressive House anthem in the form of Nicky Romero and W&W‘s new collaboration “Ups & Downs”. Leveraging the festival sound they both founded their careers with, Romero and W&W deliver big, bouncing basslines, soaring melodies, and a euphoric drop. Any experienced raver will relate to the simple and yet touching lyrics, touching upon dance music culture as self-expression in its truest form. Romero has been teasing the much-anticipated collaboration in his live sets lately, including his “Nicky Romero & Friends” showcase during ADE, when W&W joined Nicky for a surprise b2b performance. “Ups & Downs” follows Nicky Romero’s collaboration with DallasK & XYLØ, “Sometimes.” The Protocol label boss is currently on his “Redefine” world tour which started on March 29 with his Ultra Music Festival Main Stage performance.

Nicky Romero has quickly progressed from a young musical prodigy to one of the most prolific names in modern dance music. He is not only a talented DJ and producer but also the label mogul of Protocol Recordings and a mentor to the up-and-coming artists whose careers he helps to cultivate. Romero’s resume is an impressive and lengthy string of hits includes iconic originals and collaborations with artists including Avicii, Calvin Harris, NERVO, ZEDD and more. Through the constant evolution of his sound and reinvestment in emerging artists, Nicky has proved his ability to evolve with the ever-changing landscape of electronic music. His latest releases have spanned the spectrum of electronic music, including his recent “Ring the Alarm” with David Guetta, vocal house collaboration “Distance” with Olivia Holt, dance-pop gem “Be Somebody” with Steve Aoki and Kiiara, and remixes for Martin Garrix and Jess Glynne. W&W have long been forerunners in the scene and were voted #14 in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll in 2018. The duo completed a massive headlining tour last year and recently launched their own label, Rave Culture. Their star-studded list of collaborations includes Armin van Buuren, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and remixes for Steve Aoki and Maurice West.

R3SPAWN - Letting Go
Thomas Gold
returns to his Big Room progressive roots on the new single “Letting Go” on Protocol Recordings, for which he teamed up with newcomer R3SPAWN and Arizona-based singer/songwriter David Shane. Opening with delicately groovy melodies and soulful vocals, Gold and R3SPAWN build anticipation with a percussive buildup that leads magnificently into an uplifting drop. After a challenging and unprecedented year, “Letting Go” serves as a cathartic and energizing anthem to start 2021 on a positive note. The track marks Dutch producer R3SPAWN’s debut on Protocol after previously releasing on Spinnin’ Records, Smash The House, Revealed Recordings, Skink, and Armada Music; he has also collaborated with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Timmy Trumpet, and Bassjackers, to name a few. David Shane previously collaborated with Nicky Romero himself on “Into The Light” and with Trilane on “Still Think Of You” earlier. He also released on Dim Mak Records, Armada Music, Spinnin’ Records, Revealed Recordings, Warner Music, and more. “Letting Go” is Thomas’s 6th release on the label and follows his recent original release on Protocol “Live A Little Louder.”

Over the last decade, Thomas Gold has become one of the most well-known dance music producers of his time. The German producer solidified his influence in 2008 when his now-iconic remix of Delirium’s “Silence” was named Beatport’s “Best Progressive House Song” of the year. Gold went on to release on major labels including Armada Music, Axtone, Size, Toolroom Records, Spinnin’ Records, and Revealed Recordings; his crowning success thus far has been “Magic” on Armada Music, which has over 60M streams on Spotify. He also worked with Instagram celebrity Montana Tucker on the music video for the hit track, “Begin Again.” His electrifying abilities as a live performer have earned him a global following and headlining gigs everywhere from festivals like Ultra Music Festival, EDC Las Vegas, Coachella, vMysteryland, and Tomorrowland, and clubs such as Pacha Ibiza, Ushuaia, Amnesia and more. Gold also owns his own imprint, Fanfare Records, where he releases his own music as well as fresh sounds from up-and-coming producers.

Into The Light by Nicky Romero
Nicky Romero
is kicking off 2021 on a positive note with the release of his new single “Into The Light, a true Progressive House jewel for which he teamed up with Protocol talent Timmo Hendriks and Arizona-based singer/songwriter David Shane. Opening with upbeat piano melodies layered over a steadily building bassline, “Into The Light” reaches its crescendo with a goosebump-inducing drop. Shane’s soulful vocals serve at the emotive cherry-on-top for a track that sees Nicky returning to his signature sound after 2020’s pop-oriented Universal Music debut “Nights With You.” On the other hand, “Into The Light” follows Timmo Hendriks’s single “Memories,” featuring Jordan Grace.

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 collaborations with Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Mike Williams & Amba Shepherd, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, W&W, DallasK & XYLØ, Timmy Trumpet and Steve Aoki & Kiiara 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 during these unprecedented times in the music industry. He debuted his ultra-modern “Another World” live stream concept last summer and launched the Monocule alter-ego. If quarantine has proved anything, it’s that the Protocol crew is never one to slack on new music.

Now celebrating over 2 years on the label, Dutch artist Timmo Hendriks first made his debut on the label with 2018’s “In My Head,” with Lennart Schroot, followed by “Thinking About You” as part of Protocol’s “Miami 2019” EP, which has currently garnered over 3M streams on Spotify. His next releases, such as “Magical” with Lindequist, “By Your Side” with Jordan Grace, or “Be Alright” with Marc Benjamin, continued to show increased energy and a more mature production style. Hendriks’s other notable tracks on Nicky Romero’s label include “Keep Me Close” with Dash Berlin and “Deserve My Time” with Trilane. He is quickly becoming a household name and veteran of the Protocol team. Keep an eye out for what’s next!

Klipr Unveils 5-Track EP ‘Final Hour’ To Wrap Up 2020 — LISTEN

Published

on

final hour EP
There’s no doubt about what a fantastic 2020 Klipr has had with music. His 6-track EP ‘Lockdown’ saw him head down a slightly heavier Tech-House route, and now he is back with a banger EP called ‘Final Hourreleased a week ago.

On this occasion, Klipr explores the sonic energy of Progressive House. The ‘Final Hour’ EP opens with the intro track “All Your Love” which exudes a very harmonic note and sets the tone for the next tunes that follow. Directly after is “Alone” featuring a vibe with airy synths and vocals, followed by “Be Together.” Coming up, “Touch My Body” is a track that brings a sensual atmosphere, especially with lyrics and the instrumentation used by Klipr.

The last track from the EP is “New Place,” with its positive and refreshing message, the artist brings a sense of newness which reminds us that we’re moving into a New Year and hopefully things get better than they currently are. As a whole, ‘Final Hour,’ from start to finish makes the listening experience different while keeping the energetic vibes and consistency.

Keshav Bhardwaj aka Klipr, Founder of Streamin’ Music Group says “I started 2020 with ‘Lockdown’ EP, so it felt fair to close the year with another. I’ve grown as an artist this year and ‘Final Hour’ shows the same. From start to finish, my vision was to create a cumulative vibe from all the music I’ve produced in 2020.”
