Protocol has celebrated its 10th anniversary this year in several ways, like pulling out all the stops for its epic annual showcase at Amsterdam Dance Event or launching a limited edition collector’s box of vinyls consisting of the label’s most defining releases. For the last month of 2022, their gift comes in the form of the special “10 Years of Protocol EP (The Remixes),” which includes remixes and reworks of Protocol tracks by label artists. Featuring 5 brand new interpretations, the collection represents Protocol’s diverse and cutting-edge approach to electronic music. From the ethereal and uplifting grooves of Timmo Hendriks & Lindequist’s “Thinking About You” remixed by Timmo Hendriks himself to the tribal-influenced spin of “Black” by MAKJ & Thomas Newson from the latter one, to 2022’s reworks of Corey James & Teamworx’s “Make The Crowd Go” and Raiden and Bright Lights’ “Heart Of Steel,” and further to Stadiumx’s remix of their own collaboration with Nicky Romero – “Harmony,” Protocol delivers something for every fan to end the year with.
