Marc Benjamin Returns To Protocol, Releases Dance-Pop Crossover Gem “Turn Back Time.”


While the current wave of mainstream electronic music is starting to find its verticals, it can’t pigeonhole producers into a box for very long. On our latest visit over to Protocol we are checking out “Turn Back Time”, the latest drop from Marc Benjamin. Marc has been flourishing on the Protocol stage for quite some time now, showcasing his impeccable taste of brilliant productions. Marc brings his impeccable taste and knowledge in production to the Protocol team, which is always a valued asset. Our veteran this time around, Marc Benjamin, decided to make his comeback on Protocol for the single reason, to flourish on the Protocol stage. While Nicky Romero led Protocol Recordings has always been on the front lines of showcasing upcoming music artists, it’s refreshing to see even Protocol breaking their protocol to try something a bit more unique.

While we are beginning to see talented artists either fall into the worlds of tech-house or dance-pop crossovers, at least the majority of them are putting their own spin on the genre. A mainstay for both Protocol and here at Modern Neon, Marc takes his latest dip into the dance-pop world and takes a more organic approach to the track’s production. In a similar vein to Avicii’s “Wake Me Up”, Marc blends dance music with happy indie pop to make a more authentic-sounding single.  Utilizing light guitar riffs to build the listener up to a wistful and positive melody, “Turn Back Time” is a return for Marc to his roots. While Avicii will still be the king of fusion dance-pop crossovers, talented producers like Marc Benjamin are keeping Protocol on the map within this upbeat world.
