Nicky Romero dominates Untold Festival with massive ID-packed set
If you don’t know at least one Nicky Romero banger, you must have been living under a rock for the last 10 years. Dutchman Nick Rotteveel van Gotum, known within the music industry as Nicky Romero, has been a mainstay amongst progressive house, big room, and just about any modern EDM genre since his rapid growth from 2012 onwards. With anthems such as ‘Toulouse‘ and his Avicii collaboration ‘I Could Be The One‘ from his early days, to more recent main stage weapons like ‘Duality‘ and ‘Ring The Alarm‘ with David Guetta, you can guarantee that any Romero performance is going to go off. That was the case on Sunday as Romero took to the stage at Romanian festival Untold for a breathtaking performance.
Kicking off his set with ‘Here We Go‘ – a collaboration with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike that samples the classic vocal from ‘Hey Boy Hey Girl‘ – the energy was flowing from the off, with Romero mixing into his delightful edit of Meduza’s ‘Piece Of Your Heart‘ with ‘Howl At The Moon‘. Bringing the heat from then on, and even including some new music, Romero’s set captivated the onlooking crowd from start to finish. Progressing expertly through genres and tempos, weaving in some Protocol Recordings releases in the process, Romero carried the energy right through, dropping fan favourites like ‘Kernkraft 400′ and ‘More Than You Know‘. An array of unreleased music surrounded by progressive anthems such as ‘If I Lose Myself’ led to the perfect climax: a new unreleased track from Nicky Romero & Deniz Koyu, accompanied with the vocal of Avicii’s ‘Without You‘.
You can be certain that the Nicky Romero Untold set will be remembered by its attendees as one of the festivals finest, and you can catch this entire set below, and see the full tracklist right here.
