On the merits of affirmative action in the name of Dutch House music, the tectonic movements of Fedde le Grand and his multi-dexterous peer Nicky Romero make them an increasingly powerful asset to industry and nation alike. Following up on Januarys two track EP giveaway, the duo reunites for the melodically charged collaborative romp ‘Sparks’.
Vivacious leads and unfathomable energy aside, Romero’s new school stead and Fedde’s undisputable studio talents unite with solid yet profoundly melodic integrity for a hefty injection of Dance music more than fit for the ensuing festival season. Where their nations efforts may have become severely typecasted over the years, this Dutch collective breath a fresh air of versatility into the heart of one of Europe’s leading House nations that is certain to do the rounds across the globe this summer.
Update (17/8): The vocal version featuring Matthew Koma will be released August 27.
