Nicky Romero returns as his underground alter ego Monocule with the new single “Stargazing,” for which he teamed up with British singer/songwriter Leo Stannard. This release finds Monocule diverging from his tech and house-influenced sound to an organic and melodic but still deep progressive vibe. Opening with gently undulating melodies and soulful vocals courtesy of Stannard, “Stargazing” takes listeners on a cinematic and cathartic build into organic, deep basslines that seem to melt into the proverbial night. Monocule last released “On My Mind” with Tim van Werd earlier this year, and has released quite a few high-energy hits this summer under Nicky Romero. Leo Stannard‘s sought-after vocals have graced labels, including Armada Music, Toolroom Records, Musical Freedom, Sony Music, Ultra Records, and more.
After taking the world by storm with early hits such as “Legacy” with Krewella and the #1 single “I Could Be The One” with Avicii, Nicky Romero quickly proved that his talent is ever-evolving and here to stay. After launching his Protocol Recordings imprint in 2012, the renowned performer, producer, and label head continued his personal successes with a string of high-profile releases, ranging from collaborations with Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, W&W, Timmy Trumpet and Steve Aoki to remixes for the likes of Robin Schulz, Kygo, Rita Ora, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Jess Glynne and more. While showcasing his label’s roster via his weekly Protocol Radio show, Nicky Romero continues to innovate and evolve, and with his annual “Nicky Romero & Friends” ADE showcase and the launch of Monocule alter-ego, he keeps proving his ability to turn into gold everything he touches.
