Nicky Romero, born on January 6th,1989, grew up in a small city called Amerongen in the Netherlands and lived in Kingston, Canada for a few years. He moved to Kingston, Ontario, Canada, for a year, and later moved back to the Netherlands to continue his education. Nicky hit the first snare drum at the age of six and started playing drums in a fanfare. After playing a year or three, he was asked to play in a group who had acts on the streets and big events. At the age of twelve he got his first set of drums and after three years of playing drums every day and night, he swapped them for turntables.
