Moska, David Nova and Jay Klash – three emerging artists on Protocol – teamed up for “Don’t Know,” which is at once groovy and heavy-hitting with its percussive buildup and funky vocals that all lead up to the track’s massive, reverberating drop and serrating synths. The three artists seamlessly fused a multitude of genres for their breakout track, appealing to fans at the bass stage as well as those looking for some old school, big-room house.
