Nicky Romero may be known for his progressive style, but the Protocol mogul debuts a brand new sound with his latest single “Deep Dark Jungle” in collaboration with Israeli duo Teamworx.
True to its name, the track delivers driving, subterranean basslines, and dramatic melodies; it evokes vivid images of carnal tribal choreography that translates from ancient nature to modern dancefloor. Romero has been expanding his sound throughout the last year – from progressive to pop and even country-influenced – and now has touched down in the deeper realms of dance music with the sophistication that only a veteran can pull off. “Deep Dark Jungle” is the second collaboration between Nicky and longtime Protocol artists Teamworx, following their hit “Champion Sound” in 2017. If you’re an aspiring producer yourself, check out Nicky’s over 250 samples, coming straight from Nicky Romero’s studio, he’s just released on Splice here.
