REVIEW: Nicky Romero - The Moment (Novell) (Remixes) out on Protocol recordings

Out August 12th, Nicky Romero's 'The Moment' remix package delivers four powerfully unique twists on the original hit, which was unleashed on June 17th. With over a million total streams, Romero's 'The Moment' again showed the world why he is one of the foremost artists within the dance music scene, concocting a synthesized symphony of pretty pianos and bombastic basslines which has inspired euphoria in ravers right around the globe this festival season. Now the track has been given four distinct makeovers in reworks from Breath Carolina, Lipless, Toby Green and Twofold.

Operating out of Colorado, USA, Breath Carolina have crafted their 'Moment' into a high-energy Electro House banger, adding vitality with huge, driving drums and buzzing lead synths designed for all-out party bliss. Having just released his EP on Kaskade's Arkade imprint, up-and-coming Australian talent, Lipless, pursues an alternative approach with his remix – choosing instead to take a 'Moment', slow down and allow the inherent beauty of harmony and Future Bass ear candy to bless the listener's earholes. Danish producer, Toby Green, then wastes no time in steering his 'Moment'-ous interpretation towards a familiarly upbeat Future House landscape. Synthetic sirens blare, as if to alert audiences that the 'Moment' to go crazy has now arrived. Rounding off the release is Twofold's Electro headbanger, which more than lives up to their aptly described bootleg back catalogue of 'innovative, high energy club smashers'.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The Moment (Novell) by the Dutch superstar Nicky Romero is remixed perfectly by 4 superb talents. Breath Carolina delivers the straight forward super energetic epic progressive Swedish house style version with pulsating basslines, bouncy drums and truly uplifting synthy hooks that are combined perfectly with the beautiful vocals. Lipless version goes all the way to trap house territory with relaxing emotional melodies, hair raising atmosphere and superb trap broken beats and basslines that take us all the way to the bright hopeful future. Toby Green transforms the original into a massive future / rave house banger with old school basslines, vintage rave organ riffs and uplifting positive piano chords combined perfectly with the vocal snippets to bring the ultimate mainstage experience. Lastly Twofold moves on the trap meets dubstep territory with scrambled beats, wobbly basslines and cinematic atmosphere that travel the mind to faraway places. #PureGold Love it [/content]
