Nicky Romero has just released his collaboration with John Christian, which is called “Iconic”. This is not the first time the two join forces, seeing as they’ve already worked together on “Next Level” back in 2014.
“Iconic” grabs the listener’s attention from the start with electrifying distorted synths and pounding kicks. Building layer upon layer of tribal drums and a barrage of warped guitars, the record reaches zenith with a lone vocal command, before launching into a blood-pumping drop. Taking it way down to zero for the breakdown, the track makes a U-turn and introduces unexpected, but bliss disco leads with euphoric 70s-tinged guitars.
The track departs the groovy midsection to build the track up with searing synths and frenetic snares. The familiar vocal command hits again before we get kicked back into an enormous adrenaline-riddled, hands-in-the-air grand finale. By showcasing the fierce production of Romero merged with the colorful sense of melody by Christian, the payoff is a stadium-sized banger that will do some serious damage at festivals this summer.
