You’ve been playing Vegas for years but joined the Wynn Nightlife resident roster recently. What makes those venues special? I’ve really enjoyed being a part of the Wynn family. The hotel and venues are top-notch, and the whole team really makes me feel at home. I feel close to the audience when I’m playing XS, and the positive energy has a huge impact on my performance.

Is Las Vegas still one of your favorite places to visit? I always love being back in Las Vegas. The food scene is incredible, and the energy is always electric. Anything can happen in Vegas, and I’ve made many incredible memories here.

Your new single “Me on You” is a super-catchy, pop-dance track with Taio Cruz. What inspired the sound for it? Taio and I came together in LA and started experimenting with sounds and vibes. We both found inspiration in our shared experiences in Miami, which really impacted the direction of the song.

Are you working on any other collaborations? It’s been a busy summer. I have records with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, David Guetta, Afrojack and a new single coming in with Steve Aoki and Kiiara. I’m not stopping anytime soon!

NIGHTSWIM WITH NICKY ROMERO August 18, 10:30 p.m., $25-$45. Encore Beach Club, 702-770-7300.
