You can’t say I didn’t see this one coming. Feeding off the immense hype building around him, Nicky Romero has released two previews of upcoming tracks of his. One, a remix, the other, an original production dropping on Sander Van Doorn’s Doorn Records.
1)Keyword (Preview)-Nicky Romero
Coming to a club near you 6/6/2011. One of the things I love about Soundcloud is that you can just see a song building up into a massive climax. The visual cue heightens the anticipation of what you’re about to hear if you ask me. I can see how dorn decided to pick this one up though. Amazingly progressive/trancey feel/support of a fellow Dutchman, it all makes sense.
2) Out of the Dark (Nicky Romero Remix)-Housequake
Dark, Subliminal tech-house. It’s amazing the diversity of sounds Romero is capable of effortlessly mastering. Every track, you see something different out of him. At the ripe age of 22 he seems incapable of relegating himself to a single sub-genre, and much more content extrapolating the essence of different styles of production, and putting his own unique spin on them. Bravo.
The week of amazing music releases continues with a collaborative effort between Bingo Players and Nicky Romero. This track has a very similar sound and progression as Laidback Luke and Steve Aoki’s Turbulence but without the annoying Lil Jon vocals, making it a winner!
1) Sliced (Original Mix)-Bingo Players & Nicky Romero ****MUST DOWNLOAD****
This drop is going to absolutely demolish dancefloors worldwide starting tonight.
5 years from now when Nicky Romero is headlining the Ultra Main Stage, just remember who put you on the game. It’s happening. the 21 year old dutchman has displayed so much versatility with his production, his remix of “Flash” is getting played by everyone from Axwell to Fedde, and Wolfgang Gartner is even opening up his tour set with the banger.
1) Play N’ Stop (Original Mix)-Nicky Romero ***FUEGO***
This record is such a remarkable diversion from anything we’ve heard from Nicky. It’s the embodiment of the Pacha Ibiza Dance Music sound which dominated the late 90’s and early 2000’s. It’s the modern incarnation of Chicago House, and if Nicky can transition from drumline-riddled Dutch Bangers to something like this with such effortlessness, it’s scary what he’s going to do to Dance Music in the future. Stay tuned.
1) Rockin’ High (Nicky Romero Remix)-Fedde Le Grand **Dumb Hot**
2) Rudder (Original Club Mix)-Koen Groenveld *Hot*
