Blinders Gears Up For ADE With "Hero" & Exclusive Mix

Blinders Gears Up For ADE With "Hero" & Exclusive Mix
 
Last week, Blinders delivered a jam-packed Exclusive Mix in preparation of his appearance at Protocol's ADE label night. The mix features his latest release, "Hero," and today's story gives some background behind the track as well as his Exclusive Mix and relationship with Protocol Recordings. 
 
 
What was the inspiration for your track “Hero”? Can you talk about the production process for the track and how the vocal factored in?
I did the first idea of the track about a year ago and it was totally different. After some time, I found the perfect vocals for the track. The softness of the voice inspired me to make something much more gentle. At the end, I did this official version which is a combination of the soft and hard grooves inspired by sweet voices and my love for electro-housey vibes.
 
How have you been using the track in your sets? What’s the reception been like?
Some time before releasing it, I started to play it as a last track of my DJ sets to check how people would react to it. The reception was insane. People really love the vocals on it!
 
What was it like having Nicky Romero premiere the track on Protocol Radio?
It's cool! We're always premiering my Protocol stuff in his radioshow. This is perfect for people hungry for more information about upcoming releases.
 
Can you talk some about your relationship with Nicky Romero and Protocol Recordings?
Actually I met him two years ago at some festival. We started to talk about my upcoming music, so the next day I sent him "Sirene." That was the very beginning of our relationship :)
 
How excited are you for the Protocol ADE label night? Do you have anything special planned for your set?
Amsterdam is going to be crazy this year. I have a lot of new music, so I'm sure I will show some of the new tracks in my DJ sets during ADE. 
 
Can you highlight three tracks in your Exclusive Mix and what makes them stand out to you?
The first one is brand new from Machinedrum called "Do it 4 U," which is a really interesting combination of chords. The second one is ANGELZ - "Want It All." I would call it 'future gangsta drop.' And the last one is "Tiger Blood" by Graves & MYRNE, which I love for the perfect flow to finish my DJ set.
 
"Hero" is featured on the Nicky Romero Presents Protocol ADE 2016 Compilation. Be sure to check out Blinders during ADE at Nicky Romero Presents: Protocol X ADE '16 (tickets here). For all producers, Blinders will be giving a Masterclass during ADE - limited tickets are available!
