Rewind back to 2011 when a relatively unknown Nicky Romero returned on Spinnin’ Records to deliver a banger that would prove to be his biggest hit yet. A groovy bassline with a catchy lead that slowly progressed into a heavy-hitting powerful drop. Support on this came from every artist across the globe, helping Nicky Romero become a mainstay in the electronic dance music scene to this day. Gaining over 500 million streams, ‘Toulouse’ quickly became one of Nicky Romero‘s most popular singles since its release.
After taking the world by storm with early hits such as ‘Legacy’ (with Krewella) and #1 single ‘I Could Be The One’ (with Avicii), Nicky Romero quickly proved that his talent is ever-evolving and here to stay. After launching his Protocol Recordings imprint in 2012, the renowned performer, producer, and label head continued his personal successes with a string of high-profile releases, ranging from collaborations with Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Mike Williams & Amba Shepherd, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, W&W, DallasK & XYLØ, Timmy Trumpet and Steve Aoki & Kiiara to remixes for the likes of Robin Schulz, Kygo, Rita Ora, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Jess Glynne and more. While showcasing his label’s roster via his weekly Protocol Radio show, Nicky Romero continues to innovate and evolve during these unprecedented times in the music industry. He debuted his ultra-modern ‘Another World’ live stream concept last summer and launched the Monocule alter-ego. If quarantine has proved anything, it’s that the Protocol crew is never one to slack on new music.
