It is time…for the avalanche of summer anthems that are heading out way. Kicking off coverage this week we have “Midnight Sun”, the latest pre-summer smash from Nicky Romero and Florian Picasso on Protocol. Romero is one of the modern producers to change and mold today’s electronic music scene how he sees fit. Not only has he founded one of the most prolific modern electronic music movements, but he is also constantly on DJ Mag’s Top 100 list year after year and has attributed heavily to the global spread of electronic music. We are glad to see that Romero is back in the producing chair, as the modern industry still needs a bit more of his influence. We can’t give all of the credit to Romero though, as Florian Picasso is there to add his own signature style to the fray. A major player in the Protocol roster, Florian has been in metaphorical hiding for the last several months as he has been working on plenty of new music to help satisfy tastes for 2019. Florian has quickly become a fantastic representative of the Protocol movement, which in itself is becoming a household name for modern electronic fans everywhere.
“Working with Florian is always a pleasure, and we have a ton of fun in the studio. From the moment we started on this record I knew it was special and it all finally came together when we connected in Miami for Ultra. I’m hoping the fans will love it as much as we do.” – Nicky Romero
“‘Midnight Sun‘ has a lot of my own style, but Nicky took it to the next level and really helped the record to get to its full potential.” – Florian Picasso
“Midnight Sun” is one of those tracks that actually showcases two of Protocol’s strongest artists that are completely in sync with one another. Since we are in the time of year where summer anthems are becoming more and more prevalent, label boss Nicky Romero recruited Protocol veteran Florian Picasso to craft an anthem that will be the soundtrack to summer 2019. The track showcases two distinct features from each artist: Romero’s optimistic vocal work and progressive melodies, while Florian adds carefree vibes and his signature groovy instrumentals. We can almost guarantee that you will be hearing “Midnight Sun” until the festival season comes to a close, all day, every day.
