Nicky Romero¬†teamed up with¬†American Los Angeles-based producers¬†NIIKO X SWAE¬†for their new track “Easy,” an upbeat and feel-good fusion of pop and dance music. With dynamic melodies and soulful vocals, the summer anthem brings to mind happy and simple times that will forever remain favorite memories. The release comes just after¬†Romero¬†launched his new venture –¬†Protocol Lab¬†sub-label on the¬†10th¬†anniversary of¬†Protocol Recordings, as well as his recent “Perception”¬†EP. On the other hand,¬†NIIKO X SWAE¬†are hot off their “Save Me” single on¬†Armada Music¬†and earlier releases on¬†Revealed,¬†Warner Music,¬†Hexagon, and¬†Thrive Music.

We connected a while back ago, and the guys sent me some music. ‘Easy‘ grabbed my attention immediately as it had these very positive vibes, giving me a feeling of happiness. They did amazing work already, but the original demo was a bit slower and needed some more tweaks. I took the stems back to my studio and spent some time on the production, reworking it. After going back and forth a few times with¬†NIIKO X SWAE, ‘Easy‘ was done! We just played it together at my¬†Academy¬†show in¬†Los Angeles¬†on June 18, and we can’t wait to give it more spins and see how people react to it.” –¬†Nicky Romero

Easy‘ is an ode to the little things in life, like the laid-back summers we all experienced in our youth. Whether it’s carefree moments with your friends or cherishing a memory for the rest of your life, ‘Easy‘ is set to invoke a sense of nostalgia that takes you back to that special place in time. Working with¬†Nicky¬†has been a dream come true for us as he has always been one of our biggest inspirations since the day we started producing music. When we got back his version of ‘Easy,’ we knew we had a summer anthem on our hands, and we’re so excited for the world to hear it.” –¬†NIIKO X SWAE

After taking the world by storm with early hits such as “Legacy” with¬†Krewella¬†and the¬†#1¬†single “I Could Be The One” with¬†Avicii,¬†Nicky Romero¬†quickly proved that his talent is ever-evolving and here to stay. After launching his¬†Protocol Recordings¬†imprint in 2012, the renowned performer, producer, and label head continued his personal successes with a string of high-profile releases, ranging from collaborations with¬†Armin van Buuren,¬†David Guetta,¬†Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike,¬†W&W,¬†Timmy Trumpet¬†and¬†Steve Aoki¬†to remixes for the likes of¬†Robin Schulz,¬†Kygo,¬†Rita Ora,¬†Steve Aoki,¬†Martin Garrix,¬†Jess Glynne¬†and more. While showcasing his label’s roster via his weekly¬†Protocol Radio¬†show,¬†Nicky Romero¬†continues to innovate and evolve, and with his annual “Nicky Romero & Friends”¬†ADE¬†showcase and the launch of¬†Monocule¬†alter-ego, he keeps proving his ability to turn into gold everything he touches.

Childhood friends and¬†LA-based duo¬†NIIKO X SWAE¬†spent their early days learning to produce and dreaming of pioneering a new lane in house music. Flash forward to today, they are regulars on dance radio, recently releasing their debut “Field Trip”¬†EP¬†on¬†Armada Music¬†and seeing two of the singles hit worldwide radio via¬†Sirius XM‘s¬†BPM,¬†Evolution Radio, and more, with “I Ain’t Going Home” charting on the¬†Billboard Dance¬†Airplay Chart. In addition to their aggressive release schedule, the duo also hosts their own global radio show¬†NXS Radio¬†via¬†Insomniac Radio. Furthermore, the¬†Hakkasan Las Vegas¬†residents have become a staple to any successful remix package, releasing remixes for¬†Bebe Rexha,¬†Charlotte Lawrence,¬†Bryce Vine,¬†Cheat Codes, and more.¬†NIIKO X SWAE‘s remix of¬†Bebe Rexha‘s “Sacrifice” has seen a multitude of success, topping¬†3M streams, earning a top spot on¬†KIIS FM‘s “Top 20 Beats of the Week“, helping lead “Sacrifice” to¬†#1¬†at dance radio.
