Timmo Hendriks returns to Protocol Recordings with another deep progressive gem titled “Lonely World,” which demonstrates his sonic style perfectly. The Dutch producer opens with cinematic, undulating melodies and soulful vocals that evoke a hopeful feeling, while cavernous basslines add the right amount of depth to this otherwise emotive track. “Lonely World” proves once again that Hendriks’s dynamic production style can feel right at home for both the club and festival circuit, as well as easy radio play. No wonder why it’s Hendriks’s 25th single release on Nicky Romero’s label. The new single follows Timmo’s “I Need To Know” from August with Scott Forshaw vs. JJ Beck and Sam Welch, and such great collaborations from the past as “Into The Light” with Nicky Romero and “Keep Me Close” with Jeffrey Sutorius (both are rapidly approaching 6M combined streams).
Founded by Nicky Romero, Protocol Recordings is one of the leading imprints for innovative house music; it boasts a roster of heavy-hitters complemented with immensely talented up-and-comers, all with a diverse range of sounds that are guaranteed to light up a dance floor. 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 garnered almost 4M 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, which resulted in more great collaborations such as “Into The Light” with Nicky Romero, “Hold Me Down” with Marc Benjamin and VY•DA, “Remember” with Stadiumx, as well as “Keep Me Close” with Jeffrey Sutorius.

Kaskade Begins REDUX 006 EP Rollout With New Single “Save Me”
Kaskade returns with his new single “Save Me” with Lauren L’aimant from the upcoming REDUX 006 EP, the first from the Dance music icon in over 2 years (REDUX 005 EP was released in 2021). With its euphonious melodies and ethereal vocals, the new track is a perfect representation of Kaskade’s REDUX style, which has been beloved by many fans since its inception 10 years ago in 2013 thanks to its deep and euphonious melodies and minimalistic sonic aesthetic.
“Save Me” rides on hypnotizing refrains, tribal-influenced instrumentals, and a rolling bassline for Kaskade’s signature production creativity and Lauren’s velvety voice, making for an exciting first debut of the 7-track EP. It’s the type of song that pairs potent emotion with dancefloor grooviness, guaranteed to deliver on intimate dance floors, the radio, and beyond.
Kaskade has paired the track and EP with a few REDUX-inspired dates, including a recent sold-out show in Irvine, CA at 9,5K capacity FivePoint Amphitheatre, and upcoming ones in Brooklyn, Chicago, and Miami, which are also sold out. Be on the lookout for the REDUX 006 EP dropping in full on Oct 27.
As a household name in electronic music for nearly two decades, Kaskade needs no introduction. His list of achievements is a mile long: 12 studio albums, 7 GRAMMY nominations, the first solo electronic dance artist to sell out both Navy Pier in Chicago and the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the first DJ to ever secure a Las Vegas residency, and the first electronic artist to headline Coachella. Having worked on collaborations with, e.g., Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, and Meghan Trainor, he has the unique talent of creating his signature sound in any genre. Additionally, he has been one of the electronic artists leading the charge into the gaming world and, to date, is the only musician to conceptualize and create an entire season of music for video game giant Rocket League. In 2021, Kaskade came out of quarantine swinging as the first-ever solo headlining musician to sell out and perform for a public event at LA’s SoFi Stadium. Most recently, in 2022, he teamed up with deadmau5 to form Kx5. Kaskade’s influence on dance music has shaped the culture for generations of listeners, continuing to wow longtime and new fans alike with every new release.
