Protocol’s two powerhouses team up in the form of Timmo Hendriks and Marcus Santoro’s new progressive track “Salvation,” for which they enlisted Scottish startup duo Able Faces. It is a dance/pop gem, incorporating emotive elements with soulful vocal performance as well as cinematic melodies. The sonic journey builds to a euphonious drop that provides the perfect catharsis to go along with the lyrics, which many of us can relate to. This is the first time that veterans Hendriks and Santoro have teamed up on Nicky Romero’s label for a unique record that represents their dynamic producing abilities, and we certainly hope it won’t be their last. “Salvation” follows Timmo Hendriks’ recent “Heroes For One Day” with Misha Miller, while Marcus Santoro’s earlier releases include Protocol’s “Oblivion” with Diana Miro, followed by “Love Is Like” on Neon and “Talk” on Enhanced.
