Despite the genre’s direction, and perhaps relative downsizing in the years leading up to the new decade, Nicky Romero and Deniz Koyu have been among those as dedicated as ever to carrying the progressive house torch. Thousands of Tomorrowland spectators in addition to those experiencing the livestream from home became fully aware that the duo had produced something special when Romero adjourned his 2019 performance with a follow-up cooperative beside his “Paradise” counterpart. An exact three weeks after the release of his club-ready Redefine EP, Romero has submitted an early contender for standout-track-of-the-year alongside Koyu on “Destiny.”
A single playback is all that’s necessary for Nicky Romero’s Tomorrowland blend with Avicii’s “Without You” to be substituted in memory by Alexander Tidebrink’s heartwarming lyricism. From the chord progression’s first strike, “Destiny” revisits the saluted generation of dance music that candidly personified its budding stage of the 2010s, strikingly reminiscent of Swedish House Mafia’s “Don’t You Worry Child,” and other main stage hits of yesteryear.
