ADE 2018 is only 2 weeks away, and that means one thing for Nicky Romero and his Protocol Recordings crew: the countdown to the label’s biggest party of the year is officially on! Protocol is gearing up for their ADE showcase on October 17th at Melkweg with the release of two “Protocol Lab 2018” EPs. Part 1 is out now with a variety of music from FaderX, AYOR, Funkybeat & Steve Hartz and Tim van Werd. Each track displays a different genre of electronic music, beginning with FaderX‘s signature upbeat and melodic sound on “We Found Love.” Protocol fans will recognize FaderX from their hit track “Rave Me,” which has amassed over 1.7M streams to date.
AYOR brings the party with his heavy-hitting, rump-shaking club track “Booty,” which is the mysterious producer’s second release on Protocol after “Trap Like” with Teamworx. Next up is “Runaway” by Funkybeat and Steve Hartz, a lighthearted, disco-inspired tune that serves a nice juxtaposition to the rest of the EP. Protocol throws it back to their original sound on Tim van Werd‘s vocal progressive house gem “Break the Night” to close the EP out, which is guaranteed to leave you in a party mood. Luckily, tickets to the Protocol ADE showcase are on sale now here.
