After releasing Part 1 of the “Protocol Lab” EP series just last week, Protocol Recordings has dropped the Part 2 EP in advance of ADE 2018. The label’s most important showcase of the year is rapidly approaching, and the “Protocol Lab pt. 2” EP is the perfect way to gear up for what promises to be a night of both good vibes and hedonistic debauchery. The EP consists of five tracks, opening with dance-pop crossover “I Can’t Do It” by Futuristic Polar Bears and Kess Ross. Next up come groovy house beats from Charles B and VCTRY’s “House Pride,” their follow up track to this year’s “One Too Many.” Rounding out the EP’s lineup is Antoine Delvig & AYOR’s “Low Rider”, which marks AYOR’s second feature on the Protocol Lab and Delvig’s third release on the label, followed by Mosimann‘s dancefloor-friendly, driving “The Groove.” Finally, let Dutch DJs and producers Timmo Hendriks & Lennart Schroot carry you away on the progressive waves of their track “In My Head” to close out. To summarize, the “Protocol Lab pt. 2” EP is just a hint at what’s to come at Melkweg on October 17 during “Nicky Romero pres. Protocol x ADE ’18” event. There are still tickets available so make sure to grab your tickets here! See below for more information and the full lineup.
