From a young age, he developed an in interest in drums and an early career spinning House and R&B records quickly evolved into an unbridled passion for music production. In 2009, Nicky Romero remixed Sidney Samson and Tony Cha Cha’s track “Get On The Floor” and a bootleg for David Guetta entitled “When Love Takes Over”.
Both tracks got a lot of publicity and resulted in Ministry of Sound contacting him to do some remixes on their label.
In 2012, Romero achieved popularity with the recording “Toulouse,” which became a mainstay on the Beatport Top Ten for a significant period of time.
Recognising his talent, MTV named him an EDM artist to watch in 2012. It is no surprise that he exploded into the DJ Mag Top 100 chart at number 17 in 2012 (which was the highest new entry that year), rose up to number 7 in 2013 and maintained a nice place in the top 10 at number 8.
