Blinders Celebrates 5 Years Of Protocol
 
 
Celebrating the Protocol Recordings 5 Year Anniversary, we’ve got an incredible five days of music and content lined up for you with 5 Exclusive Mixes from 5 Protocol artists over that time! Kicking off our series, Blinders stepped up and crushed his mix! From his first release, the standout “Sirene,” Blinders has featured as a key piece of the Protocol family, continually releasing big tracks, mixing the Miami 2016 compilation, and playing Protocol events around the world. He’s just released his Two Sides EP on the label and had some nice insight to share.
 
 
Let’s go back to your first Protocol release “Sirene.” How was that track discovered and signed by Nicky and Protocol and what were your thoughts/emotions once the track was signed to Protocol?
We were playing the same festival as Nicky so I approached him and showed him my new stuff. He answered after few days that he wanted to release “Sirene” on his label. It was one of my first singles ever so I was really happy!

Since then you’ve followed up with big tracks like “Luminate,” “You Don’t Know,” and “Hero.” You also had the opportunity to mix the Miami 2016 compilation and have played Protocol events all over the world. What has becoming a true part of the Protocol family meant to you?
It's a good feeling because I really like the Protocol team. It's great to work with them!

You’ve got your new Two Sides EP coming out on the label as well, can you tell us a little about “Molly” and “Broken”?
The idea was to create an EP with tracks perfect for summertime. So I decided to release “Molly” which is perfect for chilling in the sunshine. “Broken” is a smasher created for a night rave. I called it Two Sides – two totally different genres, one destination.

 
Which Protocol release of your own are you most proud of, and why?
I can't talk about my Blinders favs because I’ve heard them too many times in my life to know which one is best haha. But I'm really proud of “Sirene” because it has much more support than I thought was possible before releasing it. Some big names still have it in their sets – that’s crazy!

Can you highlight two tracks or artists you included in your mix and what makes them stand out to you?
I like what my friend KVMO is doing lately so as my first track I'm picking his “Me & U.” Nice vibes. The other one will be BROHUG’s “If I’m Wrong.” I can't find a better bouncy track released lately. Love it!
 
Blinders' new Two Sides EP is available to buy/stream today!
