Syncrosity is one of the key features in any kind of relationship. This week we are revisiting Protocol with “Distance”, Nicky Romero’s latest collaboration with vocalist Olivia Holt. As we mentioned before, 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, he is 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.
While we knew Romero would surprise us and splash right into 2019, we didn’t expect this. “Distance” is a heartfelt melting pot of a track that describes the feeling of unease and separation between two star-crossed lovers. The track is overlayed by Holt’s emotional vocal work but sewed together by Romero’s soft basslines and organic instruments that give “Distance” an entirely new feel. This fantastic clash of pop and dance will no doubt infect the radio and will quickly become 2019’s first earworm…guaranteed.
“I couldn’t be more excited to return home to Omnia and Hakkasan in 2019. The energy and fans in these clubs is unmatched and the entire team involved create such an incredible experience for the fans and artists. I’m honored to be playing along side my friends Tiesto, Zedd, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Calvin Harris and the entire artist line up. These will be some of the best performances of my career and I’m looking forward to kicking it off this spring.” – Nicky Romero
