There is a fluent stamina to Nicky Romero’s universally acclaimed uprising that few Dutch assets have come close to attaining. Comfortably straddling collaborations alongside Avicii and David Guetta while at the same time embracing his new Protocol imprint, his inauguration to Pete Tong’s prestigious Essential Mix has been well and truly earned.

Blasting through such exclusive cuts as the Avicii remix of Lenny Kravitz’s ‘Superlove’ and a new collaborative effort with David Guetta, debut Protocol outing ‘WTF’ alongside Amsterdam-based ZROQ raises some potent stamina for the Dutch globetrotters latest industrious venture. With highly anticipated collaborations alongside Dutch peer Tiesto, David Guetta and Aussie femme fatales Nervo set to drop later this year, Pete Tong’s prestigious airwaves make for no exception for this rapidly expanding European stronghold.

  • Really good set!

  • Nicky Romero & ZROQ – WTF is fucking craaaaazy OMG

  • Really love the ID with David Guetta.

  • WTF Release!! pls!!

  • Hahaha the Avicii remix of Superlove is very essential, haha your practicly hear ”Essential” through the whole track :D

  • WTF is mixed with We Are Your Friends. Sounds like another sick original by Nicky, can’t wait.

  • This is one of the worst Essential Mixes I have ever heard. Tracks are good, but the mixing is quite standard. If you want prove: Check AN21 & Max Vangeli’s Essential Mix, or listen to Butch’s. Pretty much any DJ will do better than this.

  • If you listen to Right On, you will nitcoe that the sample being flipped is Steady B ‘Serious’ which means Philly paying homage to Philly. The Hilltop Hustlers to The Fifth Dynasty!^^^^^I was so distracted by the Joanna Newsom sample that I didn’t even nitcoe. Good looking out

  • Ya learn something new everyday. It’s true I guess!

  • I thought I’d have to read a book for a discovery like this!

  • I’m grateful you made the post. It’s cleared the air for me.

  • This is the perfect post for me to find at this time

  • Kick the tires and light the fires, problem officially solved!

  • This does look promising. I’ll keep coming back for more.

  • I can’t hear anything over the sound of how awesome this article is.
