Nick Rotteveel van Gotum, known professionally as Nicky Romero, paired up with duo W&W for the latest progressive house anthem, “Ups & Downs.” The Dutch DJs bring a bouncing bass line to what will most likely be a 2019 festival season instant classic.
Until the release of "Ups & Downs," Romero has teased the collaboration in his sets, most notably during his “Nicky Romero & Friends” showcase during Amsterdam Dance Event. W&W joined the set for a surprise live collaboration.
The song leverages the big room house sound in which both artists have carved their niche. Any raver, main stager or not, will likely resonate with the simple lyrics and euphoric drop.
This release is on the heels of Romero’s previous single, “Sometimes” with DallasK and XYLØ, and the announcement of his world tour, Redefine. Romero has been on the road since March 29 that kicked off with his Ultra Music Festival main stage performance.
Like Romero, W&W have been forerunners in the EDM scene, even nabbing the #14 spot in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll for 2018. The Dutch duo recently launched their own label, Rave Culture.
