A Midas may be brilliant on his own, but the ability to weave other’s ideas to enhance your own takes you to another level. This week we are heading back on over to Protocol for “Only For You”, the latest drop from Nicky Romero, Sick Individuals, and XIRA. 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. Romero continues to surprise us, even dropping a mini-doc series back in 2019 and multiple successful releases now that he’s back on the wagon. Hell, he even put on one hell of a performance at the London opening of the Call of Duty League eSports tournament!
However, even though Romero could be one of the Midas’s of electronic music, his cohorts this time around are nothing to dismiss. Sick Individuals have reached millions of ears with their original works, as well as remixes for powerhouses like David Guetta, Moby, and Avicii. While hailing from The Netherlands, Sick Individuals have dropped tracks on influential imprints such as Revealed Recordings, Spinnin’ Records, and Interscope just to name a few. These two have been movers and shakers on the live festival circuit as well, leaving exhilarating performances at Tomorrowland, Electric Zoo, and Ultra Music Festival.
This summer truly has been a bit of a productive whirlwind for Romero, with two major hits and launches of his “Another World” live stream concept and his side project Monocule, all within the last two months! The real question though, is this latest drop “Only For You” another notch on Romero’s summer belt of success? Romero takes his synonymous progressive sound and runs with it, letting a piano intro lull you in as he prepares for the drop. Upbeat and positive, “Only For You” is the feel-good song that you need when you a lost in hopeful bliss at the beginning of a new relationship. With Romero and Sick Individuals blending their styles in the lab, this leaves plenty of room for XIRA to blow us all away with her vocal performance. Each moving part fits seamlessly into the machine, not faltering until they finally give out.
