Nicky Romero returns on his imprint Protocol with ‘Distance’, a wonderful pop-driven collaboration with actress and singer Olivia Holt.
The third release in 2019 for Protocol and the first for Nicky Romero, ‘Distance’ is a dance-pop crossover with major radio appeal. The record features the stunning vocal of Olivia Holt, the young actress, and singer who has played one of the two leading characters in the TV Marvel’s series Cloak & Dagger. Despite his relatively young age, Olivia Holt counts 2.5 M monthly streamers on Spotify and his release ‘History’ extracted from his ‘Olivia EP’ now count 173 M of plays.
Nicky Romero and Olivia Holt ‘Distance’ deliver a winning combination of organic, instrumental melodies, soft basslines, and soulful vocals. ‘Distance’ showcase for the umpteenth time the dynamicity of both Nicky Romero and Protocol, able to release hard-hitting progressive festival anthem as well as radio-friendly pop hits. This ability to adapt his style to the circumstances is for sure one of the reasons on his return on the residency at Hakkasan and Omnia nightclubs in Las Vegas.
I couldn’t be more excited to return home to Omnia and Hakkasan in 2019. The energy and fans in these clubs is unmatched and the entire team involved create such an incredible experience for the fans and artists. I’m honored to be playing along side my friends Tiesto, Zedd, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Calvin Harris and the entire artist line up. These will be some of the best performances of my career and I’m looking forward to kicking it off this spring. – Nicky Romero
