Early life
Nick Rotteveel was born and raised in Amerongen, the Netherlands. He moved to Kingston, Ontario, Canada, for a year, and later moved back to the Netherlands to continue his education.[2]

In 2012, Romero achieved popularity with the recording "Toulouse," which became a mainstay on the Beatport Top Ten for a significant period of time.[1] Recognizing his talent, MTV named him an EDM artist to watch in 2012.[3] His popularity has risen in recent years, and he has attained a joint residency with David Guetta at party hot spot Ibiza for the summer of 2012.[4] His fans are collectively referred as 'Protocol Family'.[citation needed] 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.[5][6] 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.[7] On the UK Dance Chart, "I Could Be the One" debuted at number one ahead of Baauer's "Harlem Shake", which entered at number two. Following "I Could Be the One" in 2013, Romero released his long-awaited single, "Symphonica," that reached #1 on the overall Beatport Top 100 chart.[8] His next release, a collaboration with Krewella, "Legacy," also saw Beatport chart success hitting the #1 spot.[9] Romero then took on a collaboration with Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, S.O.T.U., that he released on Steve Angello's Size Records.[10] In the midst of his releases in 2013, he performed as a resident at The Light Las Vegas and he also played numerous major festivals including Ultra Music Festival,[11] Coachella,[12] Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas[13] and Puerto Rico,[14] Sensation White,[15] and Tomorrowland, amongst others. One of his most notable gigs was at TomorrowWorld where he was one of the first music acts to present an interactive performance experience using Google Glass.[16]

In October 2013, Romero ranked at number 7 on DJ Magazine's Top 100 DJs annual fan poll.[17] Romero also helms his own weekly radio show, Protocol Radio and his own record label, Protocol Recordings.[18]

In addition to all "Nicky Romero" singles, he also co-produced the track "Right Now" (featuring David Guetta) from Rihanna's seventh studio album Unapologetic,[19] which was released 19 November 2012. Before his performance at Tomorrowland,[20] he mentioned in an interview with MTV he is working on a new project with Rihanna.[21] He also co-wrote and produced "It Should Be Easy" by Britney Spears for her eighth studio album Britney Jean.
