Wait, are we getting a new Monocule track more than once a year? On our latest visit over to Protocol Recordings we are checking out “Ways To Heaven” from Monocule and company. Nicky Romero has just dropped his own limited collection of NFTs. 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. With the creation of Monocule, the expansion of Protocol Recordings, and multiple partnerships across multiple industries, Romero is definitely the producer to be watching right now.
While we are fans of most of Nicky Romero’s large collection, when he dons the Monocule moniker we go out of our way to crank up the volume and lose ourselves. A rather quick follow up from the Monocule Volume 2 EP released last month, “Ways To Heaven” is another underground progressive house banger to come out of the Protocol camp. Monocule recruited a few fellow musicians to enhance the track, collaborating with Italy’s rising star Jamis as well as British composer/singer/songwriter Michael G Moore. While Monocule and Jamis match their energy and blend their styles perfectly into the progressive house mold, Moore is definitely the stand-out. Moore’s brit-rock vocal performance integrates solidly with the Monocule & Jamis blend and provides a different kind of vocals for a familiar electronic music formula. Will we see more from Monocule this year beyond this single at Monocule Volume 2? We will have to wait and see.
