Matisse & Sadko together with rising star Raiden prove that progressive house is far from dead on their new track “Light Me Up,” out on Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings. “Light Me Up” has all the makings of a bonafide festival anthem; its soaring melodies and pristine vocals illicit a feeling of euphoria from the first note, while the blooming bassline will have fans on their feet and dancing once the drop hits. The collaboration fuses Matisse & Sadko’s energetic house sound with Raiden’s dynamic production abilities for a track that feels nostalgic of EDM’s festival heydays, yet sophisticated enough for the modern dance scene. Matisse & Sadko have had numerous successes as of late, including “SLVR” with Steve Angello and “Break Through the Silence” with Martin Garrix, while Raiden has had a huge summer with the release of “Hit the Club” with Fedde Le Grand and “Keep My Light On” with Dubvision. Press play on “Light Me Up” to be instantly transported to your happy place!
