Nicky Romero’s iconic “Toulouse” turns five years old





Nicky Romero has been a notable amongst the electronic dance music elite for quite some time now. Still only 27 years of age, he has helped craft the direction of the genre as a whole with his personal and business endeavors. Now with millions of followers, he has provided a number of chart-topping records through his own label imprint, Protocol Recordings.

However, arguably his biggest track sourced from none other than Spinnin’ Records five years ago today. Titled “Toulouse“, the track has gone on to gain a near timeless reputation amongst dance music fans around the world. A blend of the Big Room trend of the time, and his staple progressive house, the tune also flirted with fidget house elements.

Amassing over 340 million views on YouTube since its release, the track even broke into the Dutch Top 100 singles. Still one of the most viewed Official Music Videos from the electronic genre of all time, the direction by Timo Pierre Rositzki saw several people wearing Guy Fawkes masks disturbing the urban fabric.

Still a fan favorite today, the fifth year anniversary is a notable occasion and great excuse to delve back into the musical catalog of Nicky Romero. Relive the full version of the track below and let us know your memories of it.
