What was initiated at a global gathering had to ultimately be finished purely online through phone calls, DMs, and plenty of session files being batched and emailed back and forth across continents. market in a big way by scoring the #1 spot at Dance Radio (Mediabase) and logging over 6 million global streams to date. Kara Mastro)’ introduced Famba to the U.S. Her single, ‘Fake Friends’ is an undeniable hit reaching the #19 spot on UK’s official Singles Chart and logging over 20 million global streams world-wide. Incorporating modern sound design elements, Famba and Jake Tarry utilize distorted vocoders, layered rhythms, and plenty of other tricks to deliver a song that is fresh and is very much at the forefront of today’s sound. The result of this effort by Famba, Jake Tarry, and Alex Hosking is ‘Know You Best’, a pulsing white-hot anthem that’s influenced in equal parts by late ‘90s house and 21st century pop. This is not a retro song by any stretch of the imagination. Follow us on socials His debut single with Joe Stone earlier this year received support from the likes of R3HAB, Afrojack, Sam Feldt, Oliver Heldens, and many more. Amsterdam Dance Event is one of the world’s largest gatherings of international talent in dance music. ‘Know You Best’ really captures the vibes I want to radiate with my sound, and working together with Famba and Alex Hosking was the icing on the cake to make this absolute gem possible.” Australian singer/songwriter Alex Hosking is unashamedly unique and undoubtedly captivating, garnering success in her music through alluring lyrics, hooky melodies and a supreme work ethic. His first two major label releases, ‘Wish You Well (feat. On dropping his second single and working alongside Famba and Alex, Jake commented: “I’ve been very hyped about the follow-up of my first single ‘Only You’. On working on the single, Alex Said: “’Know You Best’ was inspired by a great date I had in Amsterdam; you know the kind where you’re swept away and hanging on their every word. The work paid off. Fast forward to the start of 2020 however, and the world stopped in its tracks. It is no surprise then that such an event would spawn a collaboration between an award-winning Canadian producer, a rising English producer living in Amsterdam, and an Australian vocalist and songwriter whose current single has been a fixture on the OCC UK Singles charts over the past four months. Trove)’ and ‘Swear to God” each went on to achieve Gold certified status in Canada, while his third release, ‘Storm (feat. In addition to her collaborations, Alex has released solo material and continues to write for some of the worlds’ biggest artists. Despite its influences, make no mistake. In that time, he’s planted himself squarely in the heart of the city’s music scene and established himself as one of today’s hardest working DJs – playing at every major club in Amsterdam as well as throughout the country and the rest of Europe. Opening with Alex Hosking’s sultry vocals, deep rich basslines soon wrap around the tune’s seductive lyrics as it builds into a dance floor pleasing chorus that will have feet moving and hands waiving. I wanted to capture that feeling of going out for the night, losing your inhibitions, and feeling that “high” in the moment. On working on ‘Know You Best’, Famba had this to say: “’Know You Best’ is exactly the direction I’ve been wanting to go with my new music, and collab’ing with Jake and Alex turned out to be the perfect pairing at the perfect time.”  Newcastle born, Jake Tarry, has been soaking up the Dutch music scene since moving to Holland as a teenager. On the strength of his major label releases and crowd-pleasing remixes, Famba has become one of Canada’s fastest rising talents.

Nicky Romero partners with Universal, releases the 1st single under UMG !

By EDM Nations – October 9, 2020 2 0

We went through many versions of this record, but when the acoustic strings came in, I knew instantly we had something special. I feel like they understand me as an artist and don’t attempt to put a box around creativity. Sometimes, to get the best results and bring out the magic, certain elements of a track need to be preserved as raw. The song’s organic and raw style compliments lyrics like “I’ll hold you like I know you were mine,” making for a wistful and cathartic experience that will hit you right in the feels. I’m really excited about this partnership between our brands and look forward to what I know we’ll accomplish together” – Nicky Romero about the new partnership with Universal Music. Partnering with Universal on this release is also exciting news, and I’m looking forward to the upcoming edits and remixes we have planned for ‘Nights With You‘.” – Nicky Romero about “Nights With You.”

Nicky Romero recently launched his dark progressive house project Monocule with the inaugural EP and now the Protocol Recordings label boss expresses his excitement at the release of new dance-pop crossover with Universal (Protocol Recordings will continue to release music of Nicky Romero and other Protocol artists independently):

“‘Nights With You‘ is a song I have loved from the very first moment I finished the demo. Since his initial fame as one of the progressive house’s frontrunners, Romero has experimented with different genres of musical influences, and “Nights With You” is one of his most radio-friendly singles yet. Follow us on socials Opening with a piano solo, “Nights With You” delivers soulful vocals and gently undulating basslines that meld into soaring cinematic acoustic strings.

Jake Reese). Pretty much everyone can relate to that overwhelming feeling we’ve come to call love. Taking control of you like an infectious rhythm, the desire and longing it brings could change your world in an instant, and even tear you apart when the stars don’t align. It’s another tune about love, because I know that’s precisely what you guys need!”

Follow us on socials “I love how the story hits home so strongly and got lost in the vocal melody right away. And those unrestrainable emotions, that near-unmanageable state of mind that goes round and round like a roller coaster, beats strong in Armin van Buuren’s brand-new single: ‘Need You Now’ (feat. Bearing quite a bit of attitude on an instrumental level, ‘Need You Now’ shows just how turbulent a love-stricken mind can be. It helped the track come alive very organically and I am very pleased with how it turned out. Featuring the dynamic vocals and relatable lyrics of fellow Dutchman Jake Reese on a backdrop of strong, House-tinged beats and effervescent piano chords, ‘Need You Now’ is a multi-purpose listening experience that comes with significant replay value. “You don’t always know when the inspiration for a song may come, but it struck me full force when I heard Jake Reese’s vocals and lyrics for this single”, Armin van Buuren explains.
