Protocol’s newest release from the talented Teamworx and Sunstars, “Playin’ Around” is an automatic party anthem that is sure to heat up even the most dreary of days. Teamworx and Sunstars both brought their supercharged production skills to the collaboration, from its introductory strobing melodies that build anticipation to the heavy, electro-house climax of the track. With its unbridled energy and dancefloor-friendly beat, “Playin’ Around” will have you reminiscing about stomping and dancing at the festival stage surrounded palm trees and ocean breeze. Listeners of Protocol Radio may recognize “Playin’ Around” from its ADE special, where it was premiered as an ID. “Playin’ Around” is difficult to classify into one of dance music’s many subgenres, but that’s the beauty of it – it carries elements of progressive and electro house from earlier in the decade while remaining fresh and relevant to today’s listeners. We can’t wait to see this one tear up clubs and festivals!
Both Teamworx and Sunstars are familiar faces and valuable contributors on the Protocol imprint. Hailing from Israel, Teamworx rejoined their Protocol family last year and produced the massive “Champion Sound” with label boss Nicky Romero and remixed “Only Your Love” for Nicky and Florian Picasso to much acclaim. The Italian trio Sunstars wowed listeners around the world with their unique sound on the Protocol tracks “Flames” and “Ghetto Funk” in 2017, and even claimed a coveted spot on the Protocol Lab – ADE 2017 pt. 1 EP. Protocol consistently has forward-thinking, captivating ways to engage their listeners with new releases and live events, so stay tuned for what is in store for Teamworx, Sunstars and the rest of the crew later this year.
