Nicky Romero – DJ from the Netherlands
Nick Rotteveel van Gotum, better known as Nicky Romero, was born on 6 January 1989 in Amerongen, Netherlands. He was a big fan of music since childhood and started playing drums early. When Nick was just six years old, he performed with a marching band and had a personal small drum. At that time, the artist realized that he wanted music to be his destiny.
Nick saved up some money and bought his first drum set. The same day he started rehearsing rigorously. For the next several years, Romero’s relatives heard little from Nick besides drum rhythms. Nicky worked day and night, and the effort paid off.
After some time, drums started boring the boy, and he decided to become a DJ. He worked hard to copy famous DJs. The career of a musician became his dream. Nicky began released the first successful remixes in 2009. One of his most famous songs of the time was a remix for "Get On The Floor” by Sidney Samson and Tony Cha Cha as well as "When Love Takes Over" by David Guetta. The next popular releases were “My Friend” in 2010 and “Toulouse” in 2012.
