Among other milestones to occur these past few months for Nicky Romero and his label, the esteemed label reached its 250th radio show back in May of 2017.

The DJ/Producer has releases all across the spectrum and has appeared on some of the most popular and respected labels such as Spinnin’, Dim Mak, and naturally Protocol Recordings. Together, the duo seem to have a goal in mind for this release, it’s all about bringing back the vintage grooves.
