Progressive House | Tritonal & Paris Blohm ft. Sterling Fox – Colors

Tritonal & Paris Blohm ft. Sterling Fox - Colors
Protocol Recordings is generally known for a much more aggressive, uptempo sound in the spirit of its founder, Nicky Romero, but that does mean it can’t adjust its original mold to accommodate pure quality. Fellow American producers, Paris Blohm and Tritonal have a short, but strong relationship brewing, after Paris Blohm released an original and a remix on Enhanced Recordings, Tritonal’s parent label and one they are strongly tied to. “Colors” brings them away from their label, continuing along their trend of more melodic progressive house tunes that has angered old school fans, but brought has appealed to a whole new fanbase. The tune starts with tranced out, piano driven builds underneath Sterling Fox’s soaring vocals and crescendoes into an infectious synth-laden drop.

Progressive House | Kryder – Pyrmd

Posted by on October 9, 2013

Kryder - PrymdKryder continues his hot label streak following his debut on Axtone Records with “Aphrodite“, now debuting a new single on Nicky Romero’s label Protocol Recordings in “Pyrmd”. It carries the same bouncy, groovy bass lines and melodic elements we expect from the Manchester producer / DJ with an edgier side that slots this perfectly onto the label, and making this one of his strongest productions to date.

Events, Progressive House | Vicetone – Tremble

Posted by on August 5, 2013

Vicetone - TrembleVicetone caught the attention of the internet almost immediately, and a lot of big name DJs right after, but none as strongly as Nicky Romero. They have done label releases before, such as “Stars”, but none as big as this, as they make their label debut on their new home, Protocol Recordings. The Dutch duo take a page out of label boss, Nicky Romero’s playbook with the emotive, string-led interlude, surrounded by their powerful guitar-like synths that really give the track that Vicetone flavor. Right after E Zoo, they will be touring North America with Nicky Romero on his “Nothing Toulouse” tour, which you can find the dates after the jump. Tickets are on sale here.

Vicetone - Tremble

It has been 363 days since I first posted their first ever releases — a batch of remixes for Adele, Flo Rida and Calvin Harris. Now they are circling the world, playing festivals and getting a release on Protocol Recordings. Vicetone are for real and have been since day one. “Tremble” is vintage Vicetone, with powerful synth chords, and an emotive string-led build, all wrapped into a well-produced track, as always that shows just how polished these guys are. Check back August 5th for the full release.

Progressive House | Matthew Koma – One Night (Vicetone Remix)

Vicetone & Nicky Romero

It has been a crazy year for Vicetone. Ever since exploding onto the scene last July, they have wowed fans, artists and industry insiders alike with their uncannily crisp productions, big time melodies and prolific remix rate that does not sacrifice for quality. One such customer is Nicky Romero who has signed them to his label, Protocol Recordings, and by the looks of it (rather blurry, what are you taking pictures with a flip phone?) may be working on a track with them.

Matthew Koma has become one of the hottest vocalists in dance music, and from that he has launched his own solo career with his “Parachute EP” successfully released last year and an album forthcoming later in the year. Vicetone have continued their dominance into the 2013, though their prolific release rate has slowed up as we have seen more official releases from the Dutch duo like “Heartbeat” with Collin Mcloughlin and “Stars” with Jonny Rose. Building around Matthew Koma’s seemingly perfectly built for edm vocals, Vicetone add their own big room touch with a crisp, rock influenced synth melody that pierces through your speakers and fills the space around you. Look for more remixes and originals from Vicetone coming up, including a remix of Nervo‘s “Hold On“.

While it may have been played at Pacha NYC earlier in the summer, this track got its full unveiling to the world on youtube at Tomorrowland and set the world afire with anticipation. Nicky Romero has been known for his edgier productions, “Like Home” gives us the more uplifting side of his sound, more in line with a NERVO production, with the fast paced melody and soothing vocals from NERVO. Get the original and watch for the remix package in a few weeks with Dillon Francis & fellow Dutchman, Dannic.
