The stars must've been aligned just right when Nick van de Wall (also known as Afrojack) saw his first ray of light. Music was his first love since day one, although it didn't manifest until his fifth year, when he started playing piano. Being a very creative student, Afrojack spent most of his time listening to all kinds of music while studying. To no surprise it didn't take him long to turn the tables around and start to make music instead of just listening to it.
In 2008 he hits the clubs with "Math" and "Do My Dance" and again both tracks get picked up by every big name in the industry. Afro hooks up with Partysquad and a couple of weeks later, a "Drop down (do my dance)" co-op mix is born and hits the Dutch top 20, and gets crowned "Tune of the Week" by the biggest Dutch radio stations, and even the biggest Dutch music television network "TMF". He also appears at many festivals. To name a few: Mystery Land, Tomorrowland (Belgium), Extrema Outdoor and Sensation...
Afrojack’s popularity is rising internationally. He is considered to be a genius producer and creates a series of collaboration with international artists like David Guetta, Diplo, Kid Cudi, Chuckie, Laidback Luke and Steve Angello. Most of his tracks are featured on beatport.com. Respected by his colleague DJ’s for his production talent and skills and loved by clubbers for his dance floor bombs and energetic performances, Afrojack sets a new standard in the
industry and is here to stay.
