Nicky Romero puts anthemic spin on Armin van Buuren’s ‘Unlove You’Nicky Romero Press Shot

Armin van Buuren’s “Unlove You” has received the Nicky Romero treatment. A staple of the trance tastemaker’s seventh studio album, “Unlove You” melded mid-tempo electronic with Ne-Yo’s R&B finesse. Sitting in languid contrast to some of the LP’s higher-octane inclusions, “Unlove You” offered a reprieve from the main stage-centric sound that van Buuren channeled on Balance.

Romero’s revamp arrives as the animated sonic sister to van Buuren’s original. Boasting a bubbly musical personality, the alternative version that Romero puts forth concentrates its revision in the song’s chord boosted ascents and descents. Romero melodically lifts “Unlove You,” transforming it into an upbeat tune that is designed for live sets. Tasteful and sparing in his alterations, Romero preserves the rest of “Unlove You’s” frame in his club-suitable spin.

Thomas Gold and Teamworx draw on nostalgic big room, with ‘We Remember’Thomas Gold Teamwor

Thomas Gold has teamed up with Israeli DJ and production duo Teamworx for unrelenting new single, “We Remember.” The package comes equipped with both a standard version and extended cut.

Gold and Teamworx draw inspiration from the pervasive big room sounds that permeated electronic music of the earlier 2000s. They employ mechanical synths propelling the track forward along a thumping bassline, as a vocal cut chants, “Do you remember house?”

In the extended version of the release, additional synth work and otherworldly vocals fade in and out of the introduction for a slightly more complex and metallic-tinged version of the original. “We Remember” is the perfect track for a mainstage or big venue club drop.

The single and extended version have been released via Nicky Romero‘s Protocol Recordings.

It’s almost the end of festival season but we’re not done with knock down, drag out, hold no bars, festival anthems.

Before the summer wraps, Nicky Romero and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are releasing their collaboration that debuted at Tomorrowland back in July. When it comes to festival sized anthems, there are few producers as experienced as these three and “Everybody Clap” maintains that pedigree. A spectacular and over the top fusion of electro-progressive and the Dutch big room sound, “Everybody Clap” is a track born for the club and main stage circuit. Thunderous and loud, the collab is a blaring, bass first production that’s precisely what we’ve come to know and love from these three top tier DJs.

The second episode of Nicky Romero’s “Redefine” Series is also live. He’s already spoken about his past and how he got his start. Now let Nicky show you what he’s currently working on and his latest lessons in production.

Thomas Gold and Raiden reveal orchestral release, ‘Someone New’

Following the release of tropical-leaning “Seventeen,” Thomas Gold is continuing to push the boundaries of his sound with new release “Someone New.” Gold teamed up with South Korean mainstay Raiden for the release, and not only is it the duo’s first time working together, but it is Gold’s first time working with an Asian artist.

“‘Someone New’ is very special to me – first because it’s my second release this year on Protocol Recordings, so I’m happy to be on Nicky’s label again,” Gold told Dancing Astronaut. “Second, because it is my very first collaboration with an Asian artist. Raiden is a big name in his home country, South Korea, and I really love his productions. I remember that, when we met each other for the first time in person in Miami during Winter Conference 2019, we talked a lot of production stuff, and we had tons of ideas regarding our collaboration. It all started with a rough vocal demo which I received early 2019. I created a rough production draft with the basic sounds and melodies and sent it to Raiden. After meeting up in Miami and discussing our ideas, he took the layout and continued working on sounds and the allover arrangement. Then we got to the point where we would send back and forth versions to discuss details and to finalize the production. I think we made a really nice song/track, perfect for the summer festival season, and I’m excited to have it out now!”

The track itself features a pop vocalist and initially lures the listener in with catchy crossover appeal. The drop takes an unexpected but sonically delightful turn with orchestral loops bouncing euphorically amidst upbeat synths. The duo have also put out an extended mix of the track, which kicks up the energy even more, priming it for the main stage.

“Someone New” is out now via Nicky Romero‘s Protocol Recordings.
