DVBBS recently released “Cozee,” a steamy love-song for bad girls and boys, and today, they’ve put out another slow bedroom burner with NERVO called “Make It Last.”
On the new track, future-pop waves crash over a solid R&B groove. NERVO bring the come-hither vocal game, all low-eyed and suggestive. The official music is cool with sexy ’80s color schemes. DVBBS and NERVO roll around in bed — but not like that, you dirty monster.
“Make It Last” wants you to feel so good, you ‘pon the repeat. It’s out everywhere on Ultra Records. Watch the music video below.
Over the last few years, Hardwell and KSHMR have remained relatively steadfast in the world of big room EDM production while some of their contemporaries have gotten swept up into the future bass world. Now, the duo are ready to unleash their huge new festival anthem “Power!”
“Power” kicks off with a mild vocal-driven intro before we’re suddenly thrown into an aggressive introduction that paves the way for a banging festival drop – just 30 seconds in. The second half of the song sees some more orchestral elements introduced, plus a lovely piano before the even more aggressive second drop comes in.

Joining forces for the first time, Dutch maestro and Protocol pioneer Nicky Romero has enlisted the skills of Israel-based Progressive House duo Teamworx for the latest single on Protocol Recordings, ‘Champion Sound’. As grandiose as the title implies, the release is a fast paced, hard-hitting house track that showcases the heavier elements of all involved artists.
“It’s a really amazing feeling when you get to see an artist grow from release-to-release; it’s one of my favorite parts about running a label. We’ve put out several of Teamworx’s tracks on Protocol over the years and I’m thrilled to finally collaborate with them on this latest record Champion Sound.” – Nicky Romero
‘Champion Sound’ is relentless. A high energy, fast paced BPM dance track that blasts kick drums and non-stop bass for the first minute, followed by a euphoric, symphonic build-up that evokes listeners emotion before diving deep again, pounding the fast beats home through the rest of the song.
This has been a milestone year for Nicky Romero, celebrating 5 years of growth and success of his Protocol Recordings label. Nicky is looking forward to celebrating this years’ success of Protocol next month at ADE with a label showcase, taking place at Melkweg in Amsterdam. Taking pride in spotting, developing and collaborating with new talent Nicky Romero has curated a label boasting only the best in emerging electro and progressive house prodigies.
Having executed a colossal calendar of relentless touring, Nicky has played all across the globe this year. Having recently completed a tour of Asia with stops in Japan, Shanghai and Taipei, he now looks forward to a huge South American tour with Ultra stops in Brasil, Mexico and Road to Ultra Peru and the Secret Garden Music Fest in Ecuador. 2017 has been busy to say the least for the Dutch dance music legend, but he shows no signs of changing pace with non-stop releases through the course of 2017 and beyond.
Teamworx are no strangers to Nicky’s legendary Protocol Recordings, with their first Protocol feature finding itself on the label’s Miami 2016 compilation. Since then they have found themselves with the electro legend’s support thrice preceding this milestone collaboration, and will perform alongside Nicky at his ‘5 Years of Protocol’ label showcase at ADE in October. With the influence and support of Nicky Romero and massive artist growth throughout 2017, including a mainstage set at Tomorrowland, the heavy house duo has limitless potential and opportunities to become champions of dance music themselves.

Avicii has shared the official video for his new single ‘Lonely Together’. Taken from his current EP AVĪCI, the track features British pop singer Rita Ora, who performed the song live on the first episode of the 2017 series of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing on the 9th of September.
The video was directed by Levan Tsikurishvili, and co-directed by Phillip R. Lopez. Of the video, Tsikurishvili says: “It was such a big honour to create this beautiful piece for Avicii and Rita Ora. It has been an amazing fun process in many ways – I loved the idea of playing around with the ‘frozen’ world. What I would do if I could freeze the world – imagine one day if you really could do that, what would you do?”
The 5-track ‘AVĪCI’ EP is the first new music from Swedish DJ, producer and songwriter Avicii since 2015 and the announcement of his retirement from the live circuit last year. ‘Lonely Together’ has already proved a hit and currently sits at number 4 on the UK iTunes chart and has been streamed over 55,000,000 times on Spotify alone.
