Here is Afrojack's full 7 minute remix of the Miley Cyrus hit "Wrecking Ball". After releasing the preview of the song and mixing it into his live sets, the fans "lost their ish", said Afrojack. Miley is also fan of the remixm the two were even spotted hanging out in Amsterdam shortly after its release. Hopefully we can get more music from the two of them in the future. Take a listen and let us know what you think about the remix!
When it comes to the revolution of electronic dance music, make no mistake that the Dutch DJs are the pioneers of it all. Amongst DJ Mag's Top 100 DJs, 6/10 of the Top 10 DJs are all Dutch, and even apart from a very calculated list, there's no denying that the most recognizable names in the industry have some of that Dutch blood pulsing through their veins.
Just to name a few, artists like Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Afrojack, Laidback Luke and Hardwell, were all featured in the film speaking in their native Dutch language. The film, which is available in select screenings across the US, follows the lives of these superstars as they go from one event to another explaining the sucess and influences of Dutch producers.
"Wake Me Up" by Avicii has hit the number one spot on charts all around the globe, making it one of 2013's biggest electronic hits. With a number of remixes from artists of all kinds, the single has been all over the genre map. Now Afrojack has taken the track and given it his own unique edit, with a whole new beat and drop. This remix will definitely keep this song alive that has been hot since its realease back in June. Give it a listen, and let us know which "Wake Me Up" remix is your favorite.
The world premiere of "The Spark" was recently hosted on Pete Tong's Radio 1 set. The song is set to be on Afrojack's yet to be titled debut album. "The Spark" has all the essentials of an Afrojack track: catchy, amazing lead vocals by Spree Wilson, an electro house beat, and festival worthy melodies. But with a stronger mainstream-pop sound than any we have ever heard from him, this will definitely be all over the radio waves when it is available on October 11.
As part of his North American "Spark Tour", Afrojack made a stop in the one and only New York City. The show was originally set to take place at MCU Park located in Coney Island, but due to rainy weather forecasts, they had to switch up the venue last minute. Afrojack was not phased by the venue change though. He came to the Roseland Ballroom ready to get the crowd absolutely "jacked".
The set had a number of his hit songs including "Can't Stop Me Now", "No Beef" and "As Your Friend", as well as some new unheard songs that will appear on his upcoming album. His hard house sound, along with a variety of vocal samples were mixed flawlessly. Everyone at the show heard a song that they loved, as he used vocals from various other artists, like Empire of the Sun's "Alive" and Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven".
Joonbug has been given official word that due to forecasts of heavy rain, the Afrojack show at MCU Park has been moved indoors to Roseland Ballroom . No need to fret, however, as your tickets will be valid for this show.Showtime will now be from 8pm- 2am, doors open at 7pm. The show will remain 18+ to enter.

“So who wants to get wet? If you want to get wet make some motherf*cking noise!” Oh yeah, we want to get wet.
At 6 pm, just before David Solano entered the stage, hot pink paint sprayed generously form a hose onto an excited crowd. However, this was simply an introduction—basically a tease. It was the first paint- shooting of the evening, and it was used to get the crowd excited and wanting more. It worked. When David began, the energy level vastly increased and people began to show some real interest in what was taking place on stage. We heard tracks like Hardwell’s “Three Triangles (Losing My Religion),” Afrojack ft. Chris Brown’s “As Your Friend,” and a mashup of “Young, Wild and Free” (Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa ft. Bruno Mars) vs. “Mammoth” (Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike). We also got to hear Solano’s latest track, “Loco.” But it wasn’t until R3hab & Solano’s “Do It (Life In Color Anthem 2013)” played that the real paint party began. Neon green and pink paint shot 40 feet into the crowd from guns, cannons, and hoses, in conjunction with thousands of pieces of white confetti. Appropriate.
Coming straight from DC’s Life In Color Festival to NY in order to play a very special set, is the Grammy Award-winning DJ/producer, Afrojack. For one night only, Afrojack, born Nick van de Wall, will be taking over MCU Park in Coney Island, Brooklyn, to put on show like none he has presented before.
MCU Park, home to the minor league baseball team, the Brooklyn Cyclones, is a Brooklyn landmark. Situated just outside Coney Island’s famous boardwalk, the park features breathtaking views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the historic amusement park. Although the park endured significant damage from last year’s Hurricane Sandy, the venue is now revitalized and ready for a party even stronger than the hurricane itself.
On Monday, Life in Color announced Afrojack as the first headliner of thier festival in Washington, DC. A day later, we found out that Nicky Romero would be the second headliner, but few were surprised to hear this after Glow’s Facebook post. About every two hours throughout the day, LIC continued to announce the remaining headliners: Adventure Club, Borgore, and R3hab. Finally, today, both Glow and Life in Color announced the supporting acts: 12th Planet, Cazzette, David Solano, Headhunterz, Le Castle Vania, Savoy, Showtek and Xkore. As for public opinion, Facebook seems to be exploding with positive responses. Sure, some are disappointed because, apparently, Afrojack and Nicky Romero are “as mainstream as they come," but surely they can make do. Regardless, the lineup is impressive and we can’t wait to get caught in the paint at RFK Stadium this September.
