Once leaders of the European new school, there is nothing minute about the globes attention span towards Avicii and Nicky Romero. The first, a Swedish master behind global chart stormer ‘Levels’ that successfully immortalised the voice of Etta James in his anthemic studio offering, has proven a popular force on the US club scene after just two-years of striking work. Dutch crusader Romero, once his country’s best kept secret, now shines a diverse light onto the positive appropriations of a contemporary club cuts while brushing shoulders with the likes of David Guetta and Fedde Le Grand in the process.
Their union, finally given a legitimate title to replace the false ‘Fuck School’ title that followed its preview shots, was bound to be a big outing for all parties involved. Pledging the Dutch producers robust sound alongside Tim Bergling’s melodic play, ‘Nicktim’ is a simple yet stunning track of full-throttle Progressive House that encapsulates two of the continents finest Electronic exports at a peak in their skyrocketing careers. There are one thousand reasons for Europe to be proud of its diverse canvas of Electronic Music artists making positive noise across the globe, but ‘Nicktim’ brings together two artists who beckon a promising future for this popular genre.
