A month after crashing Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings with his formidable trap remix of Legacy, Dutch beat maestro Don Diablo teams up with New York-based producer Cid for the release of Prototype, the tandem’s second collaborative effort on the fast-rising label.
With this acid-inspired paradigm, DD & Cid reinforce the notion that putting your own innovative and artistic spin on something popular, i.e. big room house, tops taking the easy way out and producing something that lacks originality just because it will be accepted. Prototype is an elaborate blend of big room funk, distorted bass patches, and provocative progressive melodies, fabricating a truly unique and multi-dimensional piece of big room mastery. It’s currently sitting at No. 9 on the progressive house charts, and you can help it get to number one by purchasing it here.
