Thanksgiving 2013 may be officially over, but artists from all over the world spent all of yesterday tweeting what they were thankful for this year. Yes, even those who aren’t American and don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in their home countries, such as Chuckie, Dada Life, and Cedric Gervais. Below is a collection of Thanksgiving-themed tweets for an extra dose of turkey-induced candidness.
With his “Nothing Toulouse” tour over and the hype from his collaboration alongside Krewella having died down, Nicky Romero teases his next release on his own Protocol Recordings. Adding his own unique spin to R3hab and Lucky Date’s ”Rip It Up,” the Dutch superstar adds a ground shaking climax alongside the big room chords and melody. It’s already been a landmark year for the 24-year-old Dutch superstar with appearances across the globe and a number of chart topping productions and it’s obvious that he wants to end 2013 with a bang.

Debuted by Danny Howard over the weekend on BBC Radio 1, the UK’s Kryder previews his take on Nicky Romero and Krewella’s “Legacy.” Although the official remix package came and went and provided four unique versions of the original, Kryder’s remix adds a whole new level of peak time sensibilities. The lyrics remain intact and are positioned over a fully revamped synth progression, which is bolstered by a unique climax that showcases Kryder’s production prowess. “Legacy” dominated the summer festival season and with continued remix efforts it seems like the collaboration’s momentum won’t be slowing down anytime soon.

Tiesto’s Club Life Vol: 3 Stockholm was packed with compelling remixes, outstanding collaborations, and a few surprise gems. One such treasure was “Cango” from Swedish duo Pelari, who immediately made a statement by having their first official release hand picked by one of dance music’s biggest names. Following another release on Musical Freedom, the duo is back and will grace Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings with “Rave.” The familiar melodic chords found on “Cango” make an appearance and an impact here as well, which is followed by an acidic climax that artfully avoids being too overbearing.

Nicky Romero felt it was opportune time to drop his take on Zedd‘s smash hit “Stay the Night” during his Protocol Recordings Label Night set at ADE.
