Nicky Romero returns in the disguise of his alter-ego, Monocule with the eighth release, “Awakening“. Simply put, the tune is an underground masterpiece featuring vocals by British singer/songwriter Sarah De Warren. “Awakening” wastes no time in getting the attention of the listener; it packs a punch, and opens with rhythmic synths and deep, growling basslines.
Additionally, De Warren‘s ethereal vocal riff complements the emphatic euphonious melodies of the track. Furthermore, these elements of “Awakening” make for a sonic experience that is meant for late nights and dark dance floors. The single follows Monocule’s recent release, “Ways To Heaven” with Jamis featuring composer/pianist Michael G. Moore. Earlier this year, Monocule also dropped his “Monocule Volume 2” EP, which has amassed over 2.5M streams on Spotify.
