Nicky Romero and Afrojack

Nicky Romero and Afrojack team up for “Back To Where We Started”

The new song “Back To Where We Started” by Nicky Romero and Afrojack combines the talents of two Dutch electronic music titans. The release seamlessly fuses both Romero’s and Afrojack’s styles, making for a banger of a track with elements of big room and progressive house.

Back To Where We Started” opens with energetic beats reminiscent of EDM’s heyday in the aughts, and it becomes clear that veteran fans and new ones alike will be served a dose of nostalgia. It progresses into an intensely anticipated breakdown before a powerful drop that is specifically designed for the festival or club scene.

After many years of friendship and remix work back and forth on each other’s imprints, it was time to finally level up in the form of our first official collaboration ever. Super happy we found a way to blend both styles into one hybrid club tune. – Nicky Romero

This is the very first time that Nicky Romero and Afrojack have collaborated after a long history of remixing each other’s works, such as Romero’s remixes of Afrojack’s “One More Day” and “Hero,” and Afrojack’s interpretations of Nicky’s “Okay” and “Rise.” This song, “Back To Where We Started,” was written for the start of their “Two Is One” b2b performance at the Amsterdam Music Festival presented by ADE, and both artists have already played it in numerous sets around the world.

Nicky and I have been friends and worked together for many years, and we had a great time finally making our first official collaboration and performing it together during our back-to-back set at AMF this year! – Afrojack

We’re hoping this is the first of many projects these two will work on together.
