Quality over quantity, energy over efficiency: These are just a couple of the reasons man about town and consistent Dutch House protagonist Nicky Romero has become an unstoppable European producer. Well aware of the buzz surrounding his studio instalments after the successive releases ‘Wild One Two’ alongside David Guetta and Miami favourite ‘Se7en’, Romero unleashes the mysterious set favourite and once speculated Avicii collaboration ‘Tension’ as a gesture to his 100k+ following on Facebook.
Balancing intense melodic progressions alongside his rigorously tuned keys, Romero’s formatively strong offering collects all the favoured elements of his beloved studio output with persuasive strength. Escaping the tedium of the Dutch House scene once again, Romero remains a vital asset to its ever expanding legacy with this impressive free instalment.
