In the span of 2 years, Afrojack has become one of electronic dance music's major icons.
The man behind the 4x platinum single Give Me Everything, for which he co-wrote and produced with Pitbull and Ne-Yo, recently released The Spark, an infectious single off his inaugural album due for release in early 2014. The single is just a taste of what we can expect from the full length album which he hopes will make people--whether they hear it on the radio or see at his live show--simply feel good.
"I just always try to make a crossover [and] create something new, create a new sound that makes people's senses tingle but still be a positive experience," he adds.
The Dutch artist, born Nick van de Wall, has become a staple for today's EDM fans and is offering them rare insight into his rise to EDM superstardom with his web series documentary, March of the Afrojack.
"[I wanted] to show people I wasn't born like this... I want to show people that if you really put your mind to it and dedicate your life to it you will become successful no matter what."
