Protocol Recordings Releases “R3hab & Lucky Date – Rip It Up (Nicky Romero Edit)”
Protocol Recordings releases R3hab & Lucky Date’s single, “Rip It Up,” in Nicky Romero’s “Rip It Up” edit due out on December 9th. With their debut release on the label, R3hab & Lucky Date make a statement and deliver an electro-infused progressive house monster. With the original coming out on December 23rd, “Rip It Up” takes on a pumping dynamic with segments including everything from distorted riffs to lush chords and razor-sharp synths. Additionally, Romero has taken the track into his own hands for a new arrangement and some additional refinements.
Two of dance music’s powerhouses, R3hab & Lucky Date, have joined forces for this strong forthcoming single release on Protocol. In “Rip It Up,” they bring in the grinding electro early on, and as the track takes shape, ascending elements are incorporated for a long build with effects and vocal accents throughout. The progressive house segment then pulls through as a bridge before the second drop that takes on an extra dimension of synths for a high energy feel.
Nicky Romero gives “Rip It Up” a festival-ready makeover as he follows up on his most recent releases. He keeps the original’s electro segments, but he reworks the first melodies and moves the massive progressive house chords to a more central part of the track. Following the melodic relief, he revamps the build with an exhilarating touch before returning to the electro segments. Nicky has subtly applied his distinctive style to give this track a bit of his own flavor.
