Protocol Alert! 100th Release Incoming With Nicky Romero’s “PRTCL” Ft. Spyder

Oh, it’s not often that we have a chance to showcase a label boss’s release here on MiR. Anyway, rounding out this weekend we have a special treat…the 100th release from Protocol Recordings! For this special occasion Protocol’s label boss Nicky Romero teamed up with fellow Protocol artist Spyder to create “PRTCL”. Always having a forward-thinking initiative, Protocol has been at the forefront of the modern electronic music movement since 2012. After having a monumental 2017, we are excited about what the label will be able to accomplish in 2018, If “PRTCL” is any indication, it will be absolutely great.

We seriously can’t believe that Protocol is now at their 100th release, what an achievement. Proving why he is still one of the most influential DJs in the movement now, Romero created “PRTCL” to honor what Protocol has accomplished so far.  Romero brought back the high-energy groove that made Romero a household name early on in his career and teamed up with Spyder to elevate it to the next level. Whether it is that high energy groove, the bouncing basslines, or the sweet cinematic melody, “PRTCL” feels timeless and is a perfect example of what Protocol has to offer.

Make sure you give “PRTCL” a full listen below:

Everything is Better Live…Dr. Shiver Releases Live Version of “Something”

You know that you have an amazing track when you need to release it again live. Anyway, this week we are checking out the latest from Dr. Shiver, who brings us his latest track “Something” featuring Kazi. An incredibly new face to the Protocol family, Dr. Shiver, or known as Bruno Carlo Oggioni, is a talented producer hailing from the great Italia (Pastahhhh)! Unlike most musicians nowadays, Shiver wears many hats such as: sound engineer, producer, label manager, etc…the list goes on and on. Shiver also didn’t start out even interested in electronic music, with his musical roots in classical of all things. How does someone go from classical all the way to the other end of the spectrum to electronic music?

This holiday season Dr. shiver decided to up the ante by providing us with a live version of his hit “Something”, as well as a video to boot! Even though he released the original version earlier this fall, Shriver decided to take it to the next level, by recruiting twelve of Italy’s best musicians to record an acoustic version live. Recorded during a marathon 24-hour studio session, the studio was filled with a beautiful hybrid of groovy percussions, electric guitar riffs, and plenty of seductive piano melodies.

Be sure to check out the live video below:

Two Weeks Down, Which Means Protocol Labs Releases ADE 2017 Part 3

As everyone who knows anything about modern electronic dance music knows, the musical zen that is the Amsterdam Dance Event is only a few weeks away. Also, that, in turn, means that Protocol will be completely tearing it up with plenty of new mixes and releases headed our way. Protocol has been in complete festivities since early May, as the label has finally reached their five years anniversary. Since this happens to be the case, Protocol has created Protocol Labs, a three-step release that will showcase all of the different styles and talents of the label’s rising talent. If you happen to be in Amsterdam for the event, make sure you swing by Protocol’s legendary venue Melkweg, where you will be able to view Nicky Romero and 20 other Protocol artists.

As we round out this series of Protocol Labs, we have to sign off with some stellar hits that will destroy the competition. As with each different playlist, Part III focuses on a general theme of a club and dancefloor-friendly grooves and vibes. Featuring three tracks and 1 remix, Part III truly is the best feet on the floor dance that Protocol has to offer. The EP starts off with “Hot For U” from Trilane & Yaro, which drives house beats and flows directly into the Navarra Remix of Sam Void’s “On My Mind”. We are glad that “On My Mind” has been featured more than once, as it has been our favorite Protocol release this year so far. The 2nd half begins with “Back Again” from Nilson & Freddy See, who definitely brings the grooves to a much needed EP. Part III finally rounds out with Funkybeat closing out the playlist once again with “Love Is Love.”…the perfect closer.

Make sure you give Protocol Lab – ADE 2017 Part III a full listen below.
