Rewerk Wednesday/Afrojack

For almost a decade, Dutch born DJ Afrojack (real name Nick Van de Wall), has been cooking up bangers for dance floors all across the music globe. Mr. Jack got his start in music at the young age of five playing the piano, but after getting his music talons on a copy of the music-sequencing program, Fruity Loops, his inhibitions changed and he was directed to playing around with samples and creating his own werk. After getting lost in the Holland club scene, he started playing short DJ sets before musically setting sail to the Mediterranean, where he played at various clubs while perfecting his individual style. After he established himself a bit, he returned to his native Holland, where he formed his own record label, Wall Recordings, while scoring massive club smashes with his singles, “Math” and “Drop Down(Do My Dance).”

After a string of performances at dance festivals and a high profile spot on the classic David Guetta track, “Toyfriend,” Afrojack soon began remixing for the likes of Madonna (“Revolver”) and Lady Gaga for a fiery remix of her hit, “Alejandro.” One his biggest breakthroughs occurred with the soaring, “Take Over Control,” featuring fellow Dutch diva, Eva Simons, which then led him to produce the Ne-Yo/Pitbull smash Billboard #1 single, “Give You Everything.” That batch of hits would then have the superstar DJ going off on his own American tour, including spots performing at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, the ever popular Coachella festival, and a whole buffet of other solo concert dates across the states.

His most recent album, ‘Forget The World,” hit headphones everywhere last year, and features his trademark crazy beats with guest stars like Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa and the legendary Sting all stopping by to lend their vocal support. Tomorrow night, Afrojack is set to destroy the TLA, where he will be putting his new and classic hits on dazzling dance-your-ass-off ┬ádisplay. To help get you guys ready to build those beats, we’ve put together a list of some of his most explosive work. Get lost in the Afrojack Mixtape below…
