Tim van Werd Teases Upcoming EP With Dark Single “Who You Are”, Sixth Drop With Protocol!


When you’ve finally found your home label, familiarity and stability can lead to an influx in your career. On our latest visit to Protocol we are checking out “Who You Are”, the newest single from Dutch producer Tim Van Werd.  Unlike many producers in similar positions, Van Werd’s love for music came through the lens of classical and jazz, showing interest in the drums, trumpet, and piano. This versatile interest in music heavily influenced his early sound, further pushing van Werd to break the traditional rules of genre in music. Earning support early on in his career from the likes of Hardwell and Nicky Romero, van Werd truly broke through the noise when he released his hit “Balkan Disco” which has now amassed over 4 million plays. Van Werd has followed up with multiple successful singles that have caught the eyes of many playmakers in the industry, with “Who You Are” being his sixth release on Protocol.

While we are fans of just stand-alone singles, when the track is apart of a much larger project it makes the single much more enticing. Van Werd’s first official tease off his upcoming Who You Are EP, Who You Are” is his latest progressive house gem that shows off the signature van Werd style. The track opens with a soulful yet questioning vocal hook, setting the stage for a rolling bassline to take the listener’s hand and guide them into the track’s core. While Protocol is known for their work in the progressive house world, van Werd is aiding in the effort to add a deeper layer to the familiar sound. We need more artists like Tim Van Werd with a slightly darker style and tone in their arsenal that can add a new dimension of talent to the Protocol imprint.
