His first ever Protocol Recordings Label night at the Amsterdam Dance Event was a big succes. It was sold out weeks before the 17th of October when the event was. This marks the popularity of the rising DJ Nicky Romero, not even to be found in the top 100 of the DJ Mag top 100 in 2011. One of the records he released on his label is ‘Iron’ which he collaborated with Calvin Harris and reached the number 1 spot at Beatport.
There couldn’t be a better place in Amsterdam to host this party. The mysterious club called ‘Jimmy Woo’ has an intimate setting, which makes the contact between the DJ and his fans more intense. Of course Nicky Romero was the main act of the night after Swanky Tunes, Daddy’s Groove and a b2b set of Nilson and John Christian, but the announcement of the very special guest who was supposed to come made everybody quite curious. If you use your common sense you could have known who that Very Special Guest would be. Since they collaborated a couple times already and he is already a legend in the EDM-scene which makes him a mentor for Nicky Romero, it did not surprise anyone probably that the Very Special Guest would be David Guetta.
Nicky Romero and David guetta were having a b2b set for about an hour, which made to crowd go wild. David Guetta turned out to be a Very Special Guest too at Afrojacks’ ‘Jacked’ just minutes away from the Protocol Recordings Label night.If it goes upwards like this with Nicky Romero, one time he will be the one who is the Very Special Guest standing along another upcoming DJ.
