Following their “Protocol Grooves Pt. 1” EP from 2020, Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings is back with part deux of their underground-oriented, dancefloor-friendly release. Featuring five brand new tracks from familiar and up-and-coming artists, Part 2 leans heavily into the dark, tech-influenced realm of sounds, showcasing the label’s sonic diversity. Opening the mix is TWENTY SIX’s “Consequences,” a bouncy house jam with a catchy vocal riff to get you in the headspace to have a good time. Riding on tech-heavy basslines, Almero’s “Do Again” brings a dark progressive vibe into the mix, while GIORG & Santez’s “Tripwire” ups the ante with a fast-paced BPM that will make you want to lace up your dancing shoes. Twolate’s “Don’t You” incorporates sultry vocals and deep instrumentals to further heat up your night, while Ado Woodz & Ale Molinari’s “Lose Stress” rounds out the collection with tech-house influence and deep, driving basslines. If you’ve been craving a night out, turn “Protocol Grooves Pt.2” all the way up and let your imagination run wild.
