Is there anyone out there doing it better than Afrojack? In the past two 2 years Afrojack has become one of electronic dance music’s major icons. Starting off in Holland and experiencing a skyrocketing career that brought him amongst the ranks of the world’s greatest DJs, as a multi-award winning, platinum-selling producer.

Fresh on the heels of his worldwide Jacked tour and with two Grammy Awards under his belt, you simply cannot deny his prominence within EDM.

And his fans would certainly agree. A nightlife enthusiast himself, Afrojack aims to–and succeeds to, as well–create the liveliest party atmospheres that have club goers going “til the morning light.” His sets are known to be wild; fans who have caught him live know him as the king of partying. And if you’ve seen him spin with Steve Aoki you know exactly how wild things can get.

He’s had a hand in some of the most popular dance tracks of the past few years, including the platinum selling “Take Over Control”, co-writing and producing the world-wide hit “Titanium” with David Guetta, and a slew of productions with some of the worlds greatest pop artists, including “Give Me Everything” with Pitbull and Ne-Yo, Beyonce’s “Run the World (Girls)” & his Grammy nominated remix for Leona Lewis’ “Collide”. And that’s not to mention the two Grammy Awards he’s received for Best Remix with Madonna’s “Revolver” and Best Rap/Hip Hop Track for co-producing Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now”.

Fortunately your number one music source, Elite Daily Music, was able to sit down Afrojack to give our readers an inside look into his lifestyle, the music he has been producing over the past few months, and his plans for the rest of the year, including his epic “Jacked NYE” event on Pier 94 in New York City in the first episode of our “EDM Titans” series within Press Play.
