We have come to see that when longtime friends and dance music titans David Guetta and Nicky Romero collaborate, they never disappoint. Coming in hot once again, "Ring The Alarm" is out now on Romero's Protocol Recordings, marking Guetta's first release on Romero's label.
After multiple remixes, tours and collaborations together in the height of dance music's resurgence into the mainstream, their first track together was 2011's "Wild One Two" featuring Sia. This was followed by 2012's notable club single "Metropolis," and now seven years later the two have reunited - and the wait was worth it.
In 2018, when Romero was working on "Ring The Alarm" Guetta happened heard the ﬁrst ideas on Instagram. In no time after that, they jumped on a FaceTime call to discuss ideas around the track and the collaboration came to life.
The big room banger is sure to be a festival anthem for the coming season for its energetic beats and catchy topline. Living up to their reputations as legendary party starters, they incorporated vocal elements of reggaetón paired with tribal instrumentals and a deep, driving bass line.

The two EDM giants have had a working relationship dating back around 10 years now. While Romero produced his first two bootlegs for "Memories" and "When Love Takes Over," it was only a matter of time until Guetta invited the young talent to join him on tour in 2011. There was no looking back from there on.
They have both individually kicked off 2019 on a high note as well. Guetta dropped his collab with Brooks and Loote "Better When You're Gone" and Romero teamed up with Marvel's Cloak & Dagger lead actress Olivia Holt on "Distance."
Although both are label bosses and tastemakers in their own right, they certainly aren’t finished combining their talents. Here's hoping we don't have to wait long for another collaboration!
