Nicky Romero is on the path to being one of the biggest DJs in the EDM scene. Provided that this was my first time seeing Nicky Romero live, having only heard his hits “Toulouse” and “Generation 303″, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Given the hype surrounding the aspiring artist–and the fact that he has been a supporting act for Calvin Harris and other superstar DJs–I was positive that I was in for an engaging experience. Romero certainly didn’t disappoint with a set of upbeat, electro-house tracks.

Born January 6th, 1989, Nicky Romero has been on a rapid rise to EDM superstardom. Hailed by David Guetta as the breakthrough DJ of 2011, Romero has seen a string of successes following the release of his hit single “My Friend”. This success resulted in overwhelming support from some of the world’s top DJs.

Romero has been featured at festivals and clubs in the live sets of DJs like  Tiesto, Fedde Le Grand, David Guetta and Sander Van Doorn. Romero is one of the hottest, most sought after producers and remixers around right now, having made remixes for Green Velvet, Tiesto, Flo-Rida and David Guetta.

Throughout the entire set you could see the confidence in Romero’s smile. He was absolutely killing the dance floor and he knew it. The liveliness of his set was further amplified by the sensory immersion provided by the venue, Mansion nightclub in Miami.

For those of you who haven’t been yet, Mansion is certainly the best club in the states. The venue features extraordinary dancers, a festival-worthy sound system, and lighting and 3D mapping that rivaled that of Ultra Music Festival, which was going on at the time. In fact, I’d peg it as a superior setting–providing the visual and aural pleasure of Ultra without the puerile ravers and insanity present at festivals.

Calvin Harris also played that evening, headlining the night at Mansion which also featured rising artist Michael Woods. There isn’t much to be said about Harris that hasn’t been highlighted already. Before he even started his set, the crowd was still reeling with energy from Nicky Romero’s epic mix.

However, the crowd was rowdy not only because of Romero’s set, but also because we all knew that Calvin Harris was going to demolish the room in a few seconds. Harris didn’t simply play music; he provided an experience.

His set, featuring hits like “You Used to Hold Me”, “We Found Love”, “Feel So Close”, and “Awooga”, took the crowd on a journey and highlighted exactly why he has earned his position as one of the top DJs in the EDM scene.

The set was well-paced and featured euphoric dance tracks, hard electro-house beats, and progressive sounds to provide a diverse musical experience for the audience. Upon ending his set, the crowd was still left yearning for more.

Having signed with megastar David Guetta, the future is looking bright for the young DJ. Keep an eye out for Nicky Romero as he continues on his path to EDM superstardom.
