Nicky Romero has progressed from being a young, musical wunderkind to become one of the most influential artists of his time. As a DJ, producer and mogul whose label is at the forefront of modern electronic dance music, it goes without saying that Nicky is a force to be reckoned with. From the iconic hits “Toulouse” and “I Could Be the One” to his recent “PRTCL,” Nicky’s resume boasts an impressive and lengthy discography of originals, remixes, edits and co-productions, proving again and again his ability to evolve with the ever-changing landscape of electronic music. Perhaps even more telling of his razor-sharp prowess and visionary mindset is the success and impact of his label Protocol Recordings. From the stage to the studio and beyond, Nicky is leaving a lasting imprint on electronic music.
In the late 2000’s, EDM was having its heyday, and Nicky Romero was at the forefront of the movement that would become one of the most significant cultural resurgences in decades. After releasing several singles early in his career, Nicky officially had his breakthrough moments with the viral anthem “Toulouse” and “I Could Be the One” (vs. Avicii), which to date has amassed over 185 million streams on Spotify alone. Nicky’s meticulous skill as a producer led him to co-producing with legendary artists, both on Rihanna’s hit “Right Now” and Britney Spears’ “It Should Be Easy.” These early successes served to pave the way for the founding of Nicky’s own label, Protocol Recordings.
Nicky created Protocol Recordings in 2012, and in the last six years it has grown from a record label to a truly multi-faceted household name in electronic music – but they’re still only getting started. Nicky created Protocol to be a place of camaraderie between forward-thinking artists, always daring to break the mold through innovative sounds. Protocol’s diverse list of artists currently includes Raiden, Maximals, Tom Tyger, Florian Picasso, Sunstars, Corey James and many more. To support the development of his artists, Nicky recently built Protocol Studios, a state-of-the-art complex with five production studios, a radio studio, and a live recording studio to encompass the end-to-end musical process. Additionally, the label’s successful radio show Protocol Radio reaches over 40 million listeners each week, and its live presence has expanded to showcases at ADE, Miami Music Week and more. Protocol celebrated their 100th release this year with Nicky’s high-energy groove track “PRTCL.”
The future’s looking brighter than ever for Nicky; he has upcoming collaborations with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Afrojack, David Guetta, and Taio Cruz this year, as well as exciting new projects with Protocol Studios and their live showcases. It’s a great time to be Nicky Romero, and it’s only going to get better.
THE CUBE GUYS
THE CUBE GUYS is a club undertaking that was born in 2005 between two of the most prominent producers in Italy: Roberto Intrallazzi and Luca Provera. Although their backgrounds and professional training differs, their common desire to release new productions and contribute to the international club scene is equivalent. Together, they combine their previous experiences and endeavors to launch a fresh and innovative musical journey!
Roberto Intrallazzi began his musical career in the latter part of the 80’s and beginning of the 90’s as part of one of the most successful projects of the ‘made in Italy’ dance era, F.P.I. Project. Their track ‘Rich in Paradise’ received worldwide acclaim and was one of the first house music releases to come out of Italy. Over the 90’s decade, his sound evolved into more like ‘house’ of today with influences from electro of the 80’s. The combination of the strong energy and search for new rhythms typical of the 80’s along with the contemporary minimal-electronic sound further assisted with the development of Roberto’s style.
In 2000, Roberto Intrallazzi met the DJ and producer, Luca Provera who matched Roberto’s knowledge of music and technology. Luca got involved with music at a very young age by building his own recording studio and becoming familiar with the technicalities of making music. Luca utilized computers, mixers, samplers, and keyboards to launch his career as a producer and sound designer; employing both digital and analog equipment.
Luca later went on to produce a private Italian radio show and together with the artist Intrallazzi produced the album ‘The Pleasure is All Mine’ by Kym Mazelle. His radio and recording studio know-how led him to quickly gain familiarity with both the software and hardware necessary to produce quality house music. He isn’t just a quality producer however he is also a well-known DJ who plays frequently in alternative venues in Italy and all over the world.
