Dutch DJ Nicky Romero became one of the biggest names of the EDM boom during the 2010s, thanks to his ambitious yet accessible productions that fused progressive house with pop. Following early-career remixes of tracks by artists like David Guetta and Hardwell, the video for his single "Toulouse" became a viral hit in early 2012, and he broke through a year later with "I Could Be the One," his U.K. chart-topping collaboration with Avicii. Since then, he's become a major attraction at festivals, including Coachella, Tomorrowland, and Ultra Music Festival. He's also co-produced songs for major pop stars like Rihanna and Britney Spears, in addition to collaborating with Chic's Nile Rodgers on the 2015 single "Future Funk." Romero runs the successful Protocol Recordings label, as well as its Protocol Radio podcast.
