Nicky Romero is hitting the ground running in 2020. After recently announcing that he’ll be headlining a Call of Duty event in London next month, Nicky has dropped his first single of 2020, “I See.” This a solid club track from the Dutch producer/DJ and it definitely makes you feel like you’re right in the middle of a packed dance floor with CO2 bursts going off in the background. “I See” is also the first single off of Nick’s upcoming Redefine EP. After Nicky put out a wide array of tracks in 2019 and leaned more into radio-friendly tunes, it’s very exciting to see him go back to a more club-friendly sound.
The track definitely projects some old school rave vibes, it opens with a male vocal over dueling piano and synth notes. There’s some cool electronic elements in the background as it fades into the buildup. The drop is just a few synth notes along with the percussion and drums in the background, but it’s super effective. After the drop and during the subsequent musical bridge, you can feel yourself inside a dark club. The houselights are going down and the colored beams are coloring the background, or at least that’s what I envision. Nicky has been opening a lot of live sets with “I See” so this has to be a happy moment for all fans of the luminary Dutch DJ.
