Thomas Gold returns to his Big Room Progressive roots with his new single, “Letting Go“. The German producer & DJ teams up with newcomer R3SPAWN and Arizona-based singer/songwriter David Shane on this Protocol release.
“Letting Go” opens with delicately groovy melodies and soulful vocals. Then, Thomas Gold & R3SPAWN build anticipation with a percussive buildup. Subsequently, this sonic segment satisfyingly segues into an uplifting drop which fans and listeners will enjoy. Moreover, after a challenging and unprecedented year, “Letting Go” serves as a cathartic and energizing anthem to start 2021 on a positive note. The track marks Dutch producer R3SPAWN’s debut on Protocol after previously releasing on Spinnin’ Records, Smash The House, Revealed Recordings, Skink, and Armada Music. He has also collaborated with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Timmy Trumpet, and Bassjackers, to name a few. In terms of David Shane, he has previously worked with Trilane and Protocol chief, Nicky Romero.
