Happy 50K Twitter followers to Nicky Romero!

The mix features many of Nicky’s own tracks, including ‘Wild Ones,’ ‘Nicktim‘ and of course ‘Toulouse.’

Uploaded Sunday evening by Romero, Tommy Trash’s remix might be the next face melter to hit clubs this spring. Rivaling the original, this strike gives an alternative electro re-work to the Romero classic.
Oh the banger that is Nicky Romero – Toulouse. It never fails to inspire a crowd and now purists Chocolate Puma have taken to the studio to provide a straight house rendition of the progressive favorite. No word on official release so stay tuned…

Oh hey David Guetta, haven’t seen you since the Grammys! Now he and pal Nicky Romero are back with a V-Day gift that will make you feel a little frisky. Released on Big Beat Records, which is having an epic few days with three Skrillex Grammys and a #1 hit for Flo Rida – Good Feeling, Wild Ones features vocals from Guetta’s collaborator on ‘Titanium,’ Sia. She is also featured on the Flo Rida – Wild Ones pop version of the song, but for electronic fans ‘Wild Ones Two’ is miles ahead of the saccharine nature of the original release.

Is this the next ‘Hey Ricky?’ track? Perhaps it is if you ‘L-U-V MADONNA.’ Nicky Romero has been tweeting about his commission for a remix of a Madonna hit and everyone heard it debuted during the Madonna/M.I.A./Nicky Minaj Super Bowl half time performance. Being the benevolent fellow that he is, Mr. Romero posted a tiny teaser of his edit just a few moments ago. Unfortunately no release date from Universal, but EO will keep you in the loop!
PREVIEW: Madonna – Give Me All Your Love (Nicky Romero Remix)
Any sort of official announcement about this track has been long coming. EO asked Nicky Romero about his previously dubbed ‘Fuck School’ collaboration with Avicii, which has now been pretty much 100% IDed as ‘Nicktim’ by Nicky himself via Twitter. His vague answer suggested that more work needed to going into mastering and finding a label home for the track, but now tastemaker Pete Tong finally announced the world premiere of the song yesterday during his Friday BBC1 radio show. This track has a lot of hype surrounding it and rightfully so. First played by Avicii during his set at the DC Armory in November, it has become a staple of both his and Nicky Romero’s sets. Others including the great and mighty David Guetta also incorporate the masterpiece into live plays. It might just be the ‘Levels’ of 2012. Release date still to come so watch here for updated info.
Generation 303 is one of those tracks that have been waited on for quite awhile. EO has been keeping you updated on the various developments surrounding Nicky Romero’s acid-banging masterpiece and now the day has finally come. This is Nicky’s first release on fellow Dutchman TiÃ«sto’s label Musical Freedom. This is going to be Nicky’s year, having been named #1 on the list of Most Anticipated Artists of 2012. In fact, a brand new remix that he completed for Madonna was played during her half-time Super Bowl performance Sunday. Between that and Avicii’s cameo for Bud Light, it is now conclusive that this is the era of beats.
Generation 303 takes the numerical part of its title from the Roland TB-303, an 80s era bass synthesizer that was the sound of acid and techno house. Generation 303 embodies the typical qualities of an acid house track, utilizing a repetitive almost trance like beat to bring the listener a sense of hypnosis, in addition to featuring short snippets of vocals. Nicky’s rendition of the genre is just terribly successful. It’s being played in regular rotation by any number of DJs, including Nicky, and should definitely be added to your daily listening routine.
