After a long year and a half of no major events, Nicky Romero and the Protocol gang returned to ADE with an epic “Nicky Romero & Friends” label showcase at Amsterdam’s iconic venue Escape, and now they’re treating fans to their annual ADE-themed release. Featuring 5 brand new tracks by Almero, Thomas Nan, Sisters Cap, SOLR and Nicky Romero himself, this year’s EP rings in music’s triumphant return to stages all over the world. True to their genre-bending style, the tracks run the gamut from progressive and big room to deep house and disco. Opening with the progressive/big room “Love Me Better” from Nicky, Protocol puts you right in the mood before taking you deeper with its follow-up “Falling Into You” from Almero. Thomas Nan makes his debut on the label with dance-worthy electro/pop fusion track “Did I Ever” with Andrew Allen, while Italian duo Sisters Cap returns to the label with disco and funky house-inspired track “Belong To Me.” Finally, SOLR closes the EP with his signature progressive sound on “Lose Control.” Fans who didn’t make it to their legendary party at the Amsterdam Dance Event can relive the spirit of it all through the label’s newest collection of tracks in the form of the Protocol Lab – ADE 2021 EP.
