Nicky Romero & NERVO Announce Remix Package for “Like Home,” with Remixes From Dillon Francis, Dannic, & Gregor Salto
Following the Beatport #1 single release of Nicky Romero and NERVO’s thought-provoking song, “Like Home,” Protocol Recordings continues to excel and distinguish itself in a saturated market with the “Like Home” remix package set to be released on December 17th, 2012. The package is overflowing with awe-inspiring remixes from Dillon Francis, Dannic, and Gregor Salto. Preview the “Like Home” remixes here: http://bit.ly/12jbija.
Dillon Francis delivers an impressively original Moombahton “Like Home” remix that brings heavy chest-thumping bass along with artistically charming melodies. In the absence of percussive elements, the densely rich synths, glittering arpeggios, and spine-tingling NERVO vocals drive the track until it builds into the meteoric drop that balances harmony with powerful crunchy basslines.
In the second remix included in the package, Dannic takes more of a big-room approach with anthemic melodies that take you by the hand and lead you to an arena-sized drop with supercharged progressive synths. It not only fits the overall vibe of the original, but Dannic takes it one step further with a sound made for the masses.
Rounding off the already eclectic package, Gregor Salto has created his own pumping rave weapon. Rather than solely utilizing the uplifting elements of the original, he builds it up to break it down into a dangerously hard hitting electro machine fueled by pure energy. Gregor displays his ability to generate raw power for the dancefloor.

Nicky Romero is announcing that he will be releasing a remix package for his hit single “Iron.” The remix package, which features remixes from Dyro and Tony Romera, will be released on October 8th via Protocol Recordings. After receiving chart-topping success and climbing to #1 on Beatport’s esteemed Top 100 chart, Protocol Recordings’ biggest release to date “Iron” will see the release of two steller remixes. The first remix comes from Dyro, one of the world’s fastest growing talents, and the second from France’s rising star Tony Romera.
In Dyro’s remix, he accentuates Calvin Harris’ beautiful vocals by using an intense symphonic melody paired with light drums in the build. As the energy of the song intensifies, Dyro adds a powerful yet melodic bigroom synth before tipping the song into a hard-hitting, grinding bass-filled drop. Dyro uses his innovative sound and distinct production ability to give “Iron” a second life.
Tony Romera’s remix is quite different, in that it utilizes “Iron’s” recognizable melody while giving it a unique twist by strategically altering the sounds and adding a series of drum kicks and percussion. In addition, Tony Romera swaps the original’s already glass-shattering drop with an interesting yet infectious new drop that gives “Iron” the breath of fresh air it deserves.
