Like their namesake elements, Sunstars has a knack for fusing unexpected styles of dance music into a catchy and unique sound that is all their own. Their newest release, appropriately titled “Ghetto Funk”, is a perfect example of their production prowess—from the moment the first roomy, bouncy bassline drops, the track begs for booty shaking, foot stomping, and mean muggin’ throughout its entirety. It’s clear that Sunstars is here to teach us “the sound of ghetto funk” as they perceive it. The track is Sunstars’s first single release on Protocol Recordings, which follows their premiere on the label with “Flames” as part of the Protocol ADE 2016 Compilation. Labelhead Nicky Romero has taken a shine to Sunstars’s productions, dropping both “Flames” and “Ghetto Funk” some of his biggest shows as of late, such as Balaton Sound, Tomorrowland, and Ultra Europe. Nicky also held the worldwide premiere of “Ghetto Funk” on Protocol Radio, where he also interviewed the trio as a new part of the Protocol family. With more new music coming soon, there’s no doubt that this is only the beginning of the journey for Sunstars.

The Italian trio of Andrea, Alberto and Luigi first broke onto the scene as Sunstars in 2014 with their first release on Ultra Music, titled “Reckless.” They quickly followed it with a massive remix of Benny Benassi’s “Let This Last Forever,” which landed them a slot performing at the iconic Ministry of Sound in London. After that gig, Sunstars was swept in a whirlwind of production and remix opportunities: “The Blitz,” which was a collaboration with Swanky Tunes; teaming up with Merk & Kremont for “Eyes,” and doing an official remix of Bob Sinclair’s “Someone Who Needs Me.” Most recently, they released “Ritual,” and now they have joined Protocol’s ever – growing roster of forward – thinking and dynamic talent with “Ghetto Funk.” Sunstars is also set to perform at Protocol’s Amsterdam Dance Event showcase at the legendary venue Melkweg on October 18th so stay tuned for more fresh content from this dynamic duo under the Protocol moniker!

DØBER Returns To Protocol With Riding Tech/Electro-Influenced “Tear The Roof”
DØBER is back on Protocol with his new single “Tear The Roof”, a party-ready track that follows up on his debut “Twisted” EP from earlier this year. The release received a strong welcome, amassing over 130k streams on Spotify since its release on February 14th. The newcomer’s propensity for intense club music, that toes the line between electro and tech-house, is once again evident in the form of heavy percussive synths over a driving bassline and distorted, catchy vocals. “Tear The Roof” is uniquely different from previous tracks “Make It Better” and “Losing My Mind,” which channeled more groovy and trap influences, respectively, indicating that DØBER has more up his sleeve than meets the eye.

Nicky Romero and the Protocol crew can always be counted on for cutting-edge new music, melding a variety of genres for exciting and unexpected sounds.

The talented newcomer draws his inspiration from artists such as Dogblood, ZHU, and Gesaffelstein, promising plenty of dark, hard-hitting tunes to add to the label’s repertoire. Protocol’s mixture of veteran heavyweights and fresh new talent makes for some of the most exciting releases in the game, along with the unlimited potential for collaborations.
