Mantrastic & Rechler return to Protocol with an upbeat progressive new single “Waiting,” their first of 2020. “Waiting” delivers rolling basslines and bouncy piano melodies that demonstrate their unique fusion of progressive and classic house style. The sonic landscape is then layered with groovy vocals, evoking a lighthearted and disco-esque vibe. Mantrastic & Rechler first released on Nicky Romero’s imprint as a part of the “Protocol Vibes – Miami 2019” compilation with the single “Spread Love.” They were later featured on “Protocol Lab – ADE 2019” with “Had Enough.” Together, both of this promising duo’s previous singles have amassed millions of streams, and “Waiting” serves as a strong follow up to these early successes. We can’t wait to see what else Mantrastic & Rechler have up their sleeves!
