About Afrojack

Grammy award winning DJ and producer, Afrojack, is one of most notable and iconic names in electronic dance music (EDM) today. At only 26 years old he has made a large impact on the music industry and is a key player in the worldwide explosion and popularity of EDM. In 2013, Forbes magazine crowned him as #7 on ‘The World’s Highest Paid DJs List’ and this year The Hollywood Reporter called him ‘’a global icon’’ set ‘’to conquer the  world.’’  A talented producer and artist Afrojack is versatile and creative with his sound whether creating club hits or producing and remixing for the likes of Beyoncé, Pitbull or Madonna. Afrojack is adept at shifting between genres and playing with his sound and it’s easy to see why his skills are some of the most sought after in the world.

Starting off in his hometown of Spijkenisse,  Nick  van  de  Wall  aka  Afrojack, quickly  made  a name for himself with a slew of hard­-hitting underground releases, before exploding on the music scene in 2011 with the release of ‘Take Over Control’ -­ an instant worldwide club and chart hit the single reached  platinum  status  in  the  U.S.  Afrojack  then  went  onto develop  his own imprint in the production world with  his  label  ‘Wall  Recordings’  –  a  platform  by  which other passionate EDM artists could grow. He also  wanted  his  label  to  retain  the ‘club music’ brand, something he strives for with every Afrojack release. 2011 also saw Afrojack sign  a landmark deal to become one of the first ever DJ’s to  sign an annual residency in Las Vegas, at the legendary Wynn Hotel. The  residency  saw  Afrojack  perform over a dozen times a year at Wynn clubs including Encore Beach Club, Surrender, Tryst and XS.

From there the success  continued;  as  well as making club  hits  and collaborating  with the likes of David Guetta (co-writing and  producing  the  worldwide  smash  ‘Titanium’),  he  also began to  team  up with and write  for  A­-list  pop  artists  around  the  world,  including  Madonna and Chris Brown. In 2011, he co-wrote and produced ‘Give Me Everything’  for  Pitbull  and Ne-Yo, which  to  this  day  has  sold  more  than  8  million  copies  worldwide  and  reached  #1  in the US Billboard Hot 100 Charts. Not  to  mention  his  production  work  for  Beyonce’s ‘Run  the World (Girls),’  his  Grammy  nominated  remix  for  Leona  Lewis’   ‘Collide’   and   his   2011 underground  track  ‘Rock The House,’ which topped  the Beatport  dance music charts  after just  three  days.  The  same  year  he   headlined  both  EDC (Electric  Daisy Carnival)  NY  &  Las Vegas  to  over  300,000  people,  as   well   as   UMF   (Ultra Music Festival)  in Miami, Tomorrowland (in  Belgium)  and  Coachella  (LA)  in  addition  a  colossal  40  city  ‘Jacked’  tour  of the  United  States, all  packed  into  2012.

Last year got off to a monumental start when Afrojack signed an exclusive worldwide deal with Island Def Jam, Island UK and Universal Music Group. The deal saw Afrojack’s talent be recognized and supported by the renowned music  label.  The  first  project  from  the partnership was ‘The Spark’, a single that fused EDM and pop and showed a new sound for Afrojack as an artist. The year continued to be another huge one for Afrojack. For his fourth consecutive year he returned to headline Creamfields and at the Ultra Music Festival and Tomorrowworld, he debuted his own ‘Jacked’ stage showcasing  his  Wall  artists.  He  also found time to shoot a documentary web-series, ‘March of the Afrojack’, which gave fans an insight into the real person behind the Afrojack moniker. The  series  was  released on the Rolling Stone website and saw Nick share many intimate moments and thoughts from his journey on the road along with his personal mantra “If I can do it, you can do it too.”
