What DJ Jounce And Christina Novelli Feel You Should Know...
A real DJ should be about as intimidated by Sync functionality as a lyricist by an electronic rhyming dictionary, a singer by auto-tune, or a banker by an ATM

When two major talents across the world from each other decide to work on a collaborative effort, it’s always interesting to see how it pans out. In the case of DJ JOUNCE (LA) and CHRISTINA NOVELLI (UK), the result is telling. ‘NOBODY KNOWS’ is a song everyone should come to know. The punchy big room house production by DJ Jounce is the perfect complement to Novelli’s voice. Novelli, of course whom we all know as the featured vocalist on ‘CONCRETE ANGEL’ with GARETH EMERY – the breakthrough collaboration currently nears 25 million YouTube views.

DJ Jounce in his own right has seen big success as well; such as with his remix of STEVE AOKI’S ‘DELIRIOUS’ (watch it here!). His track ‘TIME TO GET BLOWN’ is another example that will do really well at the festivals this Summer. As he frequents hot spots such as Asia, Ibiza and Vegas to perform, he has a serious focus on his production work, and it shows.

DJ JOUNCE: “Christina is based in England so she tracked all of the vocals there as I worked on all the instrumentation at my studio in Los Angeles. It took a little while for it to all come together but I think we’re delighted with the result. I really want people to be inspired when they hear it.

The meaning of Nobody Knows is open to some interpretation by the listener. To me, it’s about having a relationship with someone without needing it to be broadcast to the world to make it better. In the end, all that matters is your connection with that certain someone – a connection to enjoy privately. There’s no need for validation from anyone but each other.

In today’s world where everything is so open and often subject to criticism under the microscope of social media, I think it’s okay to be somewhat private with someone you love. Whether your partner is a guy or girl or even an alien, who cares? Enjoy life. Be free. Free with what you love to do.”

“BEAT MATCHING IS A REPLACEABLE SKILL
MIXING IS THE DJ’S ART”

Before DJ Jounce went full force into the electronic music scene, he was a band nerd and in a rock band himself. Being in bands was great, but sometimes the focus was more on making the group work vs. making music. When Jounce switched to electronic music, he felt it to be great to be able to orchestrate various instruments and not worry about group dynamics.

DJ Jounce: “I’m not a control freak, I just love all aspects of the song! But honestly, the transition from real instruments to electronic has been humbling as it’s a completely different animal. The amount of stuff you can do with electronic music is practically limitless”

He also has some firm opinions on the club/festival scene. And definitely not a fan of sync functionality on DJ gear. He finds beat matching a replaceable skill and not an art form… Mixing is the DJ’s art.

DJ Jounce: “If all you do is press play, then well, that’s all you really do. There are some awesome DJ’s out there and some awesome producers who are so-so DJ’s … but evolution happens and technology has helped displace the plain vanilla DJ. A real DJ should be about as intimidated by Sync functionality as a lyricist by an electronic rhyming dictionary, a singer by auto-tune, or a banker by an ATM. Technology has always been disruptive but real talent used on top of it will always trump technology alone.”

Published

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!

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.”
