Music moguls and longtime friends Nicky Romero and David Guetta teamed up for their latest collaboration “Ring the Alarm,” a new festival anthem that exemplifies both producers’ reputations as legendary party-starters. The track delivers vocal elements of reggaetón paired with tribal instrumentals and a deep, driving bassline that’s guaranteed to get the crowd dancing. Romero and Guetta were among those credited for the progressive house and big room sounds in electronic dance music back in the day, and now they’ve refashioned it for the modern age.
Nicky Romero and David Guetta‘s journey to “Ring the Alarm” started nearly a decade ago, when young producer Nicky released his ﬁrst two bootlegs of David Guetta’s “Memories” and “When Love Takes Over” in 2009. Nicky and David’s first track together was 2011’s “Wild One Two” featuring Sia, followed by 2012’s notable club single “Metropolis.” The space between then and this year’s release of “Ring the Alarm” has been filled with intersecting performances by Romero and Guetta, including Guetta‘s appearance as the special mystery guest at the ﬁrst ever Protocol Recordings showcase in Amsterdam in 2012.
