Nick Rotteveel born 6 January 1989, professionally known as Nicky Romero, is a Dutch musician, DJ, record producer and remixer from Amerongen, Utrecht Province. He has worked with, and received support from DJs, such as Tiësto, Fedde le Grand, Sander van Doorn, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Armand van Helden, Avicii and Hardwell. He currently ranks at number 37 on DJ Mag’s annual Top 100 DJs poll. He is known for his viral hit song “Toulouse”.
In October 2012, Nicky Romero received the DJ Mag ‘Highest New Entry’ award on DJ Mag’s top 100 DJs fan poll, and with spot number 17, he is one of the highest new entries ever, together with Skrillex and Dash Berlin. In that same year, Romero collaborated with Swedish DJ/Producer, Avicii, to produce the highly anticipated single “I Could Be the One” which became a massive success across Europe, particularly in the United Kingdom, where the single debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart on 17 February 2013 ― for the week ending on 23 February 2013 ― becoming both Romero and Avicii’s first chart-topper in the UK.
Following “I Could Be the One” in 2013, Romero released his long-awaited single, “Symphonica”, that reached No. 1 on the overall Beatport Top 100 chart. His next release, a collaboration with Krewella, “Legacy” also saw Beatport chart success hitting the No. 1 spot. Romero then took on a collaboration with Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, “S.O.T.U.”, that he released on Steve Angello‘s Size Records. Amid his 2013 releases, he performed as a resident at The Light Las Vegas and he also played numerous major festivals including Ultra Music Festival, Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas and Puerto Rico, Sensation White, and Tomorrowland, amongst others.
