Esports Giant ReKTGlobal Adds DJ Nicky Romero as New Investor

by Liana Ruppert

Esports mogul ReKTGlobal continues to grow as a powerful force in this industry naming yet another big music name to their investor list, this time with DJ Nicky Romero. Romero first made a name for himself with hits like “I Could Be The One” and “Toulouse,” which eventually led to his grand opening of his own label, Protocol Recordings. Now, he’s a key member of ReKTGlobal. 

“As esports is rapidly growing and dominating the culture right now, we are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to intersect music and ultimately reach the fans,” said Amish Shah, co-founder of ReKTGlobal. “With Rogue’s recent global expansion and entry into the new League of Legends Europe Championship (LEC), DJ Nicky Romero is the perfect fit. We are thrilled to welcome him and his visionary mindset to the team and look forward to forging a global connection together.” 

Romero’s integration into the ReKTGlobal network will have him work alongside the team with the goal of continued growth with industry-minded strategy and strong partnerships. He will also continue offering his own musical talents in addition to livestreams and continued work with Rogue players. 

“I’m excited to join my good friend and fellow DJ, Steve Aoki, with my investment into ReKTGlobal and Team Rogue,” commented DJ Nicky Romero. “I love gaming because it provides a great way to unwind after long nights in the studio. It’s also how I stay connected with friends when I’m on the road performing. Rogue is killing it at FIFA right now and I’m counting down the days until I can link up and play with MSDOSSARY and the rest of the team.”
