One of the world’s most innovative and sought-after artists, Afrojack, a songwriter, producer, and DJ, continues to shatter boundaries that push music into bold directions. The Grammy Award winning producer saw his breakthrough with the multi-platinum-selling single, “Take Over Control.” He has lent his production skills to many tracks, including David Guetta’s number one smash, “Titanium” (feat. Sia). Afrojack has also co-created major hits for artists such as Beyoncé, Pitbull, and will.i.am.
The electrifying track “Dirty Sexy Money” brought Afrojack’s 2017 to a close. It offered a star-studded production alongside David Guetta, Charli XCX, and French Montana. Afrojack is propelling forward into another incredible year. He’s already dropped “Bad Company” with DirtCaps, a remix of U2’s iconic “Get Out of Your Own Way,” and reunited with David Guetta and Sia once again for “Helium.”
In the last two years, Rolling Stone named Afrojack one of the 50 Most Important People in electronic dance music. Forbes has placed him on their 30 Under 30 list. He will be the keynote speaker for the 2018 presentation of the awards. This is no surprise since he is only the second DJ ever to imprint his hands into the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He continues to appear in Las Vegas every month as a resident DJ for the Wynn Hotel Group at their three luxury venues, XS, Encore Beach Club, and Intrigue. Outside of Vegas, he performs worldwide at all major festivals and premier nightlife venues.
