    Nicky Romero

    Nicky Romero was born in Amerongen, the Netherlands and raised there until he moved to Kingston, Ontario, Canada for a year. He later moved back to the Netherlands to continue his education but did his final semesters in France.

    Nicky Romero is a Dutch DJ and record producer from Amerongen, Utrecht Province. He has worked with and received support from DJs such as Tiƫsto, Fedde le Grand, Sander van Doorn, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Armand van Helden, and Avicii.

    As Nicky Romero has become more popular, he has also become the target of criticism from underground music producers and underground music satire web articles. These critics claim that Romero lacks the ability and contribution to the electronic music canon.

    Critics have gone after his style, his look, and his music-production skills. Such suggestions describe elements of Romero’s abilities as brief and insufficient. Romero has since shrugged off the suggestions as minor.
