DJ Reality Check is the entity that allows you to leave your problems at the door. With music to make you forget about the world. Music to move you. Music to take you on a journey into remembering how to just be.
That is exactly the reason why multi-instrumentalist Nick Romero established the guise that is DJ Reality Check.

Influenced by the underground House music movement and psychedelic rock music of the 70s, Reality Check’s progressive-electronic sound is both energetic and feel-good with a pinch of euphoric contentment.
“We live in a world of stress; a world that is forever taking – your energy, your sanity, your sense of calm”, says Reality Check. “which is why I want to create music. To give people the time to just free themselves. We all need a reminder sometimes to step out of the crazy and into ourselves. To be present in this moment, where nothing else matters ”.

And with songs like ‘Let Go’ and ‘Won’t Waste No Time’, he achieves his mission perfectly – and America seems to be listening. Having just completed a 35-day/23-show US tour supporting a side project with singer/songwriter Emma G, and percussionist Joey J Drums, DJ Reality Check has been on the tips of everyone’s lips from Vermont to California.

“I make music that hopefully allows people to attach to, and relate to in their own way. I have my own messages I try to portray, but it’s a conversation of ears, hearts and souls, really.”
