The hallmark anniversary is spearheaded by the 250th episode of Protocol Radio, and the celebrations will last until their showcase at ADE this October. Protocol Radio kicked off their 250th episode with a live broadcast on May 25th featuring tons of the label’s best tracks and an on-point selection of brand new music that they’ve been saving for this special occasion, so be sure to tune in. On May 29th, Protocol is treating longtime fans to a five hour mix of sonic highlights from 2012 to 2016.
