Nicky Romero vs. Volt & State – Warriors [March 30 – Protocol Recordings]
Hot temperatures will be accompanied by even hotter tracks, including this brand-new offering from Protocol Recordings label boss Nicky Romero and fellow Dutchmen Volt & State. The track they produced together is titled “Warriors” and looks to be one of the hottest progressive house selections to debut at the myriad of events taking place in the coming weeks. Nicky Romero and the entire Protocol team regard Volt & State quite highly, as the label has hosted multiple tracks from the duo and Romero used the track “Rush” as his intro edit for months. After first appearing during last year’s Tomorrowland festival in Belgium, “Warriors” will be available on March 30 through Protocol Recordings.
“Warriors” is a thoroughbred progressive house tune, and shows off the extreme talents of each producer. With quiet nuances, soulful vocals, and a powerful melody, it has all the necessary pieces to be a quintessential festival track. The breakdown begins with an uplifting repetition of the main melody, which soon provides the background to the vocals. As the vocalist hits the chorus, the vibe changes into an almost orchestral sound as the track transitions into buildup. The chorus continues on, and the drop’s chord progression takes over. A quick buildup brings in the drop, which capitalizes on the energy of the breakdown and adds a powerful punch of its own on the low end.
