Best Nicky Romero Songs of All Time – Top 5 Tracks

Nick Rotteveel born 6 January 1989, professionally known as Nicky Romero, is a Dutch musician, DJ, record producer and remixer from Amerongen, Utrecht Province. He has worked with, and received support from DJs, such as Tiësto, Fedde le Grand, Sander van Doorn, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Armand van Helden, Avicii and Hardwell. He currently ranks at number 37 on DJ Mag’s annual Top 100 DJs poll. He is known for his viral hit song “Toulouse”.

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. 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.

Following “I Could Be the One” in 2013, Romero released his long-awaited single, “Symphonica”, that reached No. 1 on the overall Beatport Top 100 chart. His next release, a collaboration with Krewella, “Legacy” also saw Beatport chart success hitting the No. 1 spot. Romero then took on a collaboration with Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, “S.O.T.U.”, that he released on Steve Angello‘s Size Records. Amid his 2013 releases, he performed as a resident at The Light Las Vegas and he also played numerous major festivals including Ultra Music Festival, Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas and Puerto Rico, Sensation White, and Tomorrowland, amongst others.

Nickey Romero has a residency at Hakkasan and Wet Republic.

Mansion Miami Closing it’s Doors

For the past 11 years, Mansion has been one of the giants of Miami Beach nightlife, but now it appears the nightclub’s future is uncertain.

Icon Hospitality has confirmed that Mansion will close its doors next week. On Friday, September 4, 2015, Mansion is having Nicky Romero perform for what it is calling on Facebook “Mansion Closing Weekend.”

“Nicky Romero takes to the Mansion Nightclub decks one last time during Mansion Closing Weekend,” the event’s Facebook page says.

When Mansion opened in 2004, taking over the space formerly occupied by another iconic nightclub, Level, it seemed to signal the arrival of Miami’s nightlife scene on a global scale. South Beach almost immediately shifted to a bottle-service-oriented experience, and Mansion was at one point the place to be if you wanted to show off how many bottles you could buy in one night. The venue also hosted many iconic DJs and performers like Deadmau5, David Guetta, Justice, Laidback Luke, and even some off-kilter shows like a performance by a recently hospitalized Britney Spears after her very public meltdown in 2007, and a raunchy set by Peaches.

But sometimes Mansion’s bottle-service clientele would clash with performers, resulting in the venue cutting sets short. It happened to both DJ Shadow and Dennis Ferrer. In February 2012, after his set was stopped, Ferrer tweeted, “Haha @mansion_miami made me get off the decks!! said I don’t play commercial enough!! WTF!!!!!”

Still, with its stunning aerial dancers and ornate interior, Mansion has managed to stay afloat for much longer than most. But Miami’s club scene is an evolving landscape. The recent emergence of places like Libertine and Do Not Sit on the Furniture point to a shift in tastes toward smaller, more intimate venues. It begs the question: Is the mega nightclub on its way out in Miami? Places like Space and LIV endure, so certainly not yet.

We’ll keep you updated on what will become of Mansion’s space as more details emerge. It’s very possible that Mansion may undergo a renovation + name change and come back bigger and better than ever.

 

Omnia Reveals 2015 DJ Residency Roster

Omnia Nightclub, the latest vegas superclub (taking over Pure’s old space at the Caeser’s Palace) announced today an initial line up for it’s 2015 season.

The resident DJ headliners for Omnia include heavy hitters such as Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Chuckie, Martin Garrix, Nicky Romero, Nervo, Krewella, Oliver Heldens, and Showtek.

The state-of-the-art venue revealed an impressive lighting system, a domed four-story roof with a sleek open-air deck, and a VIP mezzanine booth that takes its stylistic cues from European opera houses.

“We are pleased to welcome an unprecedented lineup of award-winning, global artists to Omnia and to provide our guests an entertainment experience that is unmatched in Las Vegas,” says Neil Moffitt, CEO of Hakkasan Group. “The caliber of artists planned for Omnia, combined with the nightclub’s seductive design, state-of-the-art sound, lighting systems and technology will take guests on an immersive, ever-evolving and unforgettable journey.”

Resident artist Afrojack says Omnia would provide a unique nightlife experience “unlike anything that has been in Vegas before.”

“I was really excited when the Hakkasan Group team shared the initial designs and involved me in a large part of the planning of the sound system, lights, effects and a whole range of other details throughout the club,” he says. “I am confident Omnia will set a new standard in nightlife and I am very proud to be a part of it.”

Tickets for Omnia will go on sale Feburary 2, 2015. Omnia’s grand opening is scheduled for Friday March 13, 2015, with Calvin Harris on the decks.
