Nicky Romero (Artist Spotlight #8)

Nicky Romero, born on 6 January 1989 grew up in a small city called "Amerongen", lived in Canada (Kingston) for a few years.

Nicky hits the first snare drum at the age of 6 and started playing drums in a fanfare. After playing a year or three, he'd been asked to play in a huge group who had acts on street and big events. That was fun though, but not enough for small Nicky. At the age of 12 he got is first set of Drums, and started practising, practising and practising. Well, after 3 years playing drums everyday and night , it was enough and he changed the drums for turntables.

School never had his interest, so after graduating he started producing music. And after hours, hours and hours of practising (throw lots of computers out of the window) he got his first label called "Once Records", who's going to release the tracks: Privilege & QWERTY.

After that deal, the next track came up called "Funktion One". From that moment everything went very fast. Dutch famous DJ/Producer Madskillz got interested in "Funktion One" from that on Nicky signed Funktion at Azucar (from Madskillz & Gregor Salto). Later they added "Hear My Sound" to their label two!

These day's allmost every high rated DJ has a few Romero records in his bag, which remixes for Ian Carey, Dirty South, David Vendetta, Sidney Samson this DJ has left his mark in the house scene. He just finished his new track "Nicky Romero - My Friend" which reaches 4 at Beatport Overal Chart and 1 at Beatport Progressive Chart. Supported by Tiesto, Axwell, SHM, Mark Knight, Funkagenda, Fedde le Grand & more! This track definitely conqueres WMC 2010. To be continued…

Dub Moment #1

Um... Wow... So I'm actually kinda having a "Dub Moment" Me personally, i'm not a big fan of dubstep! There's good dubstep and bad dubstep! Alot of the dj's out here play bad dubstep which is probably why it hasn't won me over just yet :P
Anyways, with that being said... I'm having my dub moment and i'm gonna be nice and put a couple mixes which I find sick as fuck!
