Nicky Romero and Deniz Koyu team up once again, this time for their newest release ‘Destiny’, which is out on Romero's Protocol Recordings. Both artists return to their roots on the track inspired by the classic vocal progressive house sound that was popular in the EDM explosion of the early-2010s. With a soft opening focused on instrumentals and soulful vocals by Swedish singer Alexander Tidebrink, the track evolves into an uplifting drop with melodies that aims to appeal to large scale festival stages.
Deniz and Nicky first teamed up in 2018 on their hit track ‘Paradise’ ft. Walk Off The Earth, which amassed over 30M streams on Spotify alone. ‘Destiny’ follows Romero's ‘Redefine’ EP and single ‘Stay’. On the flip side Koyu has recently released original singles, such as ‘Feel It’ on Tiësto's Musical Freedom, and ‘Enemy’ on Martin Garrix's STMPD RCRDS.
Romero's resume includes originals and collaborations with artists including Avicii, Calvin Harris, Krewella, ZEDD and more. His radio show "Protocol Radio" apparently ‘receives over 40M listeners every week across over 100 FM radio stations worldwide.’
Deniz Koyu has released tracks such as ‘Tung!’, ‘Bong’ and many more. His work also included remixes of Alesso's ‘Is That For Me’ and The Chainsmokers' ‘Young’.
