Nicky Romero & NERVO’s legendary track ‘Like Home’ turns 7 years old


If we talked about artists that marked an era during the ‘EDM Golden Era‘ we can’t forget about the Dutch icon Nicky Romero and the beloved Australian sisters NERVO. Characterised for their great melodic abilities, both artists came together to drop ‘Like Home‘ via Romero’s label Protocol Recordings. A truly progressive house masterpiece that went to become one of the most successful projects in their careers. To date, we can still them them playing it in every single one of their sets.

Back in 2012, we were immersed into a scene that everything coming out seemed to be new. Continuously presenting innovative and new amazing music content, households artists like David Guetta, Calvin Harris or Swedish House Mafia were dominating the scene and solidifying their legacies releasing masterpiece after masterpiece with tracks like ‘Sexy Bitch’ ‘Memories’, ‘Titanium’, ‘Without You’. ‘One’, ‘Save The World’, ‘Miami2Ibiza’, ‘Don’t You Worry Child’, ‘Bounce’ ‘Feel So Close’ or ‘We Found Love‘ among many more. Other upcoming artists were transitioning to become the next generation of electronic music legends: the Swedish prodigy Tim Berg aka Avicii was making himself a name as a future megastar breaking the charts with ‘Seek Romance’ and ‘Levels’, Sebastian Ingrosso’s protegé a talented producer named Alesso was catching the attention of the scene with ‘Years‘ or his remix of Nadia Ali‘s ‘Pressure‘ and Afrojack and Hardwell were rising the energy with ‘Take Over Control‘, ‘No Beef‘ and ‘Spaceman‘.

In a similar context, a young and eager Nicky Romero broke into the scene in style with his unique mega tune ‘Toulouse‘ while in the other side of the planet, the pair NERVO were releasing this unseen mix of own-produced and singed electronic music tracks like ‘You’re Gonna Love Again. Building their way to the top, ‘Like Home’ represented a turning point in their music careers, establishing their names as top EDM artists and empowering their brand. The catchy angelical vocals from the Melbourne-based twins with the acoustic piano sounds and the chord progression gave that emotional melancholic touch that in combination with the energetic melodic progressive house drop gave you goosebumps and euphoria at the same time.

After 7 years, a lot of things have changed and time has passed by. However, Nicky Romero has always kept loyal to his progressive house roots continue to release banger after banger. Definitely, he is the chosen one to bring that progressive house back. Relive the iconic track below:
