This year’s 20th anniversary of Ultra Music Festival was no doubt a special one, with some memorable sets being played all-round and of course the reunion of Swedish House Mafia to close the main stage. Nicky Romero had yet another impressive set confirming him as one of the most consistent artists in the industry. The set covered many genres, seamlessly transitioning between his distinct ‘Protocol’ sound to more bass-heavy tracks as even some trap. One of the most exciting moments of the set came when Nicky Romero brought singer ROZSES to perform a unique, progressive rendition of their single, ‘Where Would We Be’, fusing the pop and future bass style with the classic progressive flawlessly ‘. He then went on to play an ID rumoured to be in collaboration with progressive pioneer KO:YU, formerly known as Deniz Koyu, truly beautiful progressive house track which turned back time to the days when emotional melodies and progressions dominated the dance music scene. Nicky Romero posted a video of him playing the track to his facebook suggesting it might be out sooner than we think.
Nicky Romero also took to his Instagram to post him in the studio working on a track with the caption ‘progressive is back’, a statement which has fans excited for the direction the dance music scene is taking. Especially after Alesso also hinted to fans on Instagram that he might be returning to his progressive roots. Arty also just released a new progressive masterpiece ‘Rain’ on Armada and tweeted ‘progressive house just came back‘, suggesting that there could truly be a progressive renaissance coming soon.
There is no doubt progressive house was the style which made many people fall in love with dance music, and many of them will look forward to hearing their favourite artists release some new progressive hits.
