“Rave” is the newest release from Nicky Romero‘s Protocol Recordings, courtesy of talented Portuguese producer KURA. The new single will be a welcome throwback sound for many listeners, as it draws upon the bouncy, big room house and electro sounds from the early 2010s. KURA weaves in strong basslines with energetic melodies and catchy vocal riffs for an upbeat, party-ready sound that will get you off the couch. “Rave” is KURA‘s first single release on Protocol Recordings, though he has previously remixed John Christian‘s track “Next Level” in 2014. His other collaborations with Hardwell, Laidback Luke, and Tony Junior have received millions of streams, and we now see him stepping into more independent territory with this new release. KURA has also released on well-known labels such as Spinnin’ Records, Revealed, Musical Freedom, Smash The House, and Ultra Records, to name a few.
Founded by Nicky Romero in 2012, Protocol Recordings is one of the leading imprints for innovative house music; it boasts a roster of heavy-hitters complemented with immensely talented up-and-comers, all with a diverse range of sounds that are guaranteed to light up a dance floor. The label has cultivated a strong presence in the dance music scene from Miami Music Week to the Amsterdam Dance Event and beyond, consistently bringing the good vibes and wild nights with beloved veterans and fresh faces in the live performance circuit. Although the global pandemic prevents them from making their usual appearances this summer, Nicky and Protocol gang always have something up their sleeves. The label recently released their “Protocol Grooves Pt.1” EP signifies a new venture and a festival season gift to listeners, following another milestone for the label: their 200th release, Nicky Romero‘s edit of “Techno” by Teamworx, Mr. Sid & George Z. With the release of KURA‘s “Rave,” Protocol isn’t close to slowing down yet, so expect more cutting-edge new music coming to your speakers very soon!
