If anyone could turn a music video into a romance it would be the Nervo twins, and that’s just what they’ve done with “Like Home.” Teaming up with Nicky Romero for not just the track but the video itself, the three producers star in a mini movie that tugs at the heartstrings while keeping up the heart rate. With steamy shots of a canoodling Liv, Romero bursting through walls and Mim adorably Skyping, the video partially lifts the glamorous veil from life on the road but restores its sheen with the strobe-lit show footage that dreams are made of. Looking good either home or away, the trio have provided a surprisingly poignant visual for their anthemic hit.
The establishment that’s aiming to redefine the nightlife experience in Sin City just got a whole lot bigger. The Cirque Du Soleil-themed night club, Light at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, has revealed the remaining artists to hold residencies at the already star-studded venue. The DJs set to join Skrillex, Sebastian Ingrosso, Zedd and Baauer, include Axwell, Alesso, Nicky Romero, Thomas Gold, A-Trak, Mat Zo, Otto Knows and Alvin Risk, Andy Caldwell, Bassjackers, Carl Kennedy, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Hook N Sling, Sebastien Drums, Stafford Brothers, and Steve Powers. Still tightly under wraps, we are excited to see what the groundbreaking club has hidden behind its doors – a mystery that will be revealed for its opening on April 26th.
Avicii and Nicky Romero’s long-standing hit “I Could Be The One” gets the remix treatment from a trio of emerging talents known as Bent Collective. Italy’s Danny Verde, Beglium’s Steven Redant, and Israel’s Guy Scheiman make up the group, and together have remixed the heavily-rotated track into a techy, upbeat rework. Without altering the original vocal or structural elements of the track, the group presents a remix with infectious groove and bouncy chord progression. The Avicii camp has given this one their golden stamp of approval, so expect it to get plenty of play time from Mr. Bergling himself.

To no surprise, David Guetta has once again mastered the airwaves with his production for Ludacris and Usher, “Rest Of My Life.” The pop tune is no longer limited to the subtle touches of electronic energy, as Nicky Romero, Hard Rock Sofa, and Daddy’s Groove have taken their turns for the remix package. Nicky picks up where David left off, giving the track a boost behind the chords, while Hard Rock Sofa make the vocals their own around gritty synth layers. Daddy’s Groove also takes “Rest Of My Life” a step further from the radio, injecting slaps and bass kicks suited for the dance floor.
Aspiring producers need all the help they can get, so it pays to listen when a talent like Nicky Romero is talking. The Dutch sensation will be sharing tips and answers via his YouTube channel and Google+ page, so tune in at 1PM EST with your burning questions ready. His class and Q&A session will be accompanied by a live set from Vince Moogin, whose single “Love Me Right” is forthcoming on Romero’s Protocol Recordings imprint.
Update: We’ve embedded the livestream video after the break.
A few weeks back, we previewed the latest single “Still The Same Man” from Dutch superstar Nicky Romero, John Christian, and Nilson. The full release is now available for your enjoyment on Toolroom Records. This is a sound some of you might not recognize out of Mr. Romero: he returns to his “Camorra” roots with a clean cut and hopping tech house track that eases right in line with much of Toolroom’s catalogue. There’s no “Toulouse” or “Metropolis” in this one, ladies and gents, but seeing producers oscillate back and forth between different sounds is a beautiful thing.

Coachella 2013 lineup officially announced with Nicky Romero, Hardwell, Wolfgang Gartner, Luciano, and more
The Coachella 2013 lineup has officially been announced, but sadly Daft Punk is not on the bill. As it turns out those leaks were just as we suspected – more rumors. Despite our disappointment, we are still blown away by this year’s lineup. There’s Bassnectar, Infected Mushroom and Dog Blood, Nicky Romero, Wolfgang Gartner, Tommy Trash and Thomas Gold, Luciano, Seth Troxler, and Jamie XX and more – oh yeah, that’s just Friday. Coachella’s entire electronic music lineup is all killer no filler – even the groundbreaking duo out of Britain, Disclosure, is making an appearance.
For those of us who came up listening to the mellow electronica of Ben Gibbard and DNTEL’s side project The Postal Service – you’ll be happy to see that they are re-uniting for the first time since their hit album as well.
Editor’s Note: The last time that Daft Punk performed live was to close out Phoenix’s Madison Square Garden show in 2010 – could there still be a chance that the duo may make a surprise appearance at Coachella? Probably not, but I’m still holding out hope.
Toolroom Records is out with an official preview of the latest (or simply previously unreleased) track “Still The Same Man” from none other than Mr. Nicky Romero — with support from fellow Dutchmen Nilson and John Christian. We were pleasantly surprised to hear something a little different from Nicky; he trades out his signature growling bass line a la “Toulouse” or “Metropolis” for a cleaner, bouncy Toolroom tech track. It’s a refreshing breath of life for big room producers like Nicky, and we admire his diversity in production. Click through for the preview and watch out for a full release on February 4th.

Avicii and Nicky Romero finally release ‘I Could Be The One,’ their collaboration formerly known as ‘Nicktim’
One of the most highly anticipated tracks of the year has been Avicii and Nicky Romero’s “Nicktim.” Following months of foresight, Pete Tong premiered the final product, which with the addition of a vocal has been renamed “I Could Be The One.” Easily Avicii’s most contagious tune since “Levels” took the world by storm, his Nicky Romero collaboration has been a festival staple and an instant favorite that has never failed to please a crowd.
While the track has been infamously bootlegged with Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.,” the mastered vocal works wonders with the happy-go-lucky track, and for those who prefer the former “Nicktim,” the original mix comes packaged with its instrumental. Also included are remixes from Audrio and Didrick, available for purchase via Tim’s LE7ELS imprint. Listen to the latest anthem to rattle the dance music world and jump beyond the break for the official video.
