“Every year we love to showcase new and upcoming talent on the Protocol ADE compilation. An opportunity like this can kickstart their career and we at Protocol love to be part of the first steps for an artist. We don’t care if an artist has 3 followers or 300.000 followers, but we do care about the passion, creativity and hours of sound-scaping in their tracks and hopefully you will see this on every single featured” – Nicky Romero
