Nicky Romero

Nick Rotteveel -- better known as the progressive house DJ, Nicky Romero -- was born in the province of Utrecht in the Netherlands in 1989. Early experience as a drummer in a marching band helped develop his gift for rhythm and by his teens he was playing a mixture of R&B and house tracks to appreciative Dutch audiences. In 2008, he began to issue club-oriented instrumentals on small labels such as the fledgling Once Records, before going on to sign tracks to larger labels like Toolroom and Spinnin'. David Guetta soon took notice and emailed Romero out of the blue with a request for him to remix a track that he was working on. The pair finally met up during a Guetta DJ set in Ibiza and struck up a close friendship which eventually led to the award-winning Frenchman tutoring Romero in the art of merging pop aesthetics with club music. There was an increase in press attention when Romero's remix of Guetta's Kelly Rowland collaboration, "When Love Takes Over," began to circulate in 2009. Further support from fellow Dutch DJs such as Hardwell and Fedde Le Grand led to much more remix work in 2010, including a Romero revamp of Kylie Minogue's "All the Lovers." 2011 saw him expand into the European festival circuit, while early the following year he landed another prestigious remix assignment when he worked on Madonna's "Give Me All Your Luvin'." That summer a main stage appearance in Belgium at the Tomorrowland festival further cemented his reputation, as he was asked to produce a track for Rihanna's November 2012 album Unapologetic. Further mainstream success ensued when he collaborated with Swedish DJ Avicii on the Noonie Bao-fronted track, "I Could Be the One." Hundreds of thousands of copies of the single were sold worldwide and by February 2013 it had reached the number one spot in the U.K. singles chart. ~ James Wilkinson
