If you’re feeling in need of some uplifting vibes this winter, you can trust SWACQ and their fellow Protocol Recordings artists to boost your spirits with their new track “I Want It All (ft. PollyAnna).” SWACQ teamed up with Pandaboyz and Lux & Marcusson for the refreshing dance-pop fusion track, delivering Dutch powerhouse production skills and emotive, silky vocals by PollyAnna. Feel your spirit soar as the track’s sweeping chords meld into a drop that feels like the breathless moment of euphoria before a free fall, while the addition of PollyAnna’s catchy voice lends a sing-a-long quality that will have the lyrics stuck in your head for days. “I Want It All” is SWACQ’s second release on Protocol Recordings, coming after his festival anthem “Love,” which was given a special edit by Nicky Romero and premiered at Ultra Korea this year. The fresh talent of Pandaboyz, who recently released “Mumble” on Flamingo Recordings, and male/female duo Lux & Marcusson, with tracks out on Armada, Sony Music and more, simply bolster Protocol’s ever-growing roster of star producers.
SWACQ has created a personal brand that thrives on their energetic, forward-thinking music. To fans, SWACQ transcends music alone; it has evolved into a lifestyle fueled by fun vibes and danceable beats. With hyper-modern production skills and a knack for tunes reminiscent of dance music’s progressive and big room house heyday, SWACQ combines the contemporary and the nostalgic for a sound that will appeal to both new and elitist electronic fans. He recently co-produced Tiesto’s epochal “Club Life Vol. 5: China” album, which is an honor for any dance artist and a massive achievement for an up-and-comer. SWACQ is another rising talent that the renowned Protocol Recordings has taken under their wing; the label has become synonymous with forward-thinking, dynamic electronic music since its creation in 2012 by Nicky Romero and has seen immense success with both established and emerging artists such as Tom Tyger, Raiden, and NERVO. Protocol celebrated its fifth birthday this year and is about to unleash its 100th release. Stay tuned for the massive Protocol 100th release and more incredible showcases and new music from them in 2018!

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
