The DJ: Nicky Romero
Props: 2012 wasn’t ready for Nicky Romero, as he took the EDM world by storm with his breakout electro house banger "Toulouse" that dominated Beatport for weeks. On top of that, Romero holds the record for the highest new DJ Mag Top 100 entry ever, flying in impressively at number 17. Building on his success, Romero’s 2013 collaboration with Avicii "I Could Be The One" hit #1 in the UK, just beating out the viral "Harlem Shake" (at the time). Romero’s knack for catchy, hard-driven synths and high energy tracks makes it hard to believe he's barely 25.
