68534_10151539931686421_1174447206_n

 When word came out that Afrojack had remixed Miley Cyrus’ wrecking ball, most of us admittedly criticized Nick for what he was starting to become production wise. He seemed to be going from dance music to more of a mainstream pop feel following the release of “The Spark” and had lost tons of fans in the process. Now that we have a full length preview its safe to say that Afrojack has proven the haters wrong as this 7 minute remix embodies most of the skills that got us to know and love Nick as a producer. Lets hope for dance music’s sake that he sticks to this kind of production and showcases what made him who he is today.

 Another day, another flurry of new uploads on Afrojack’s soundcloud. The first of which titled ‘Jack That Body’ will be released on August 5th via Wall Recordings. The next is an heavy experimental track from Nick who has come alive in recent weeks with a few jabs at Deadmau5 titled ‘GotDrop?’ and the final comes as a free download titled ‘Peanuts’ which features a bit of a different style that we are used to from the king of dutch. I personally have grown tired of Afrojack’s melodies and recent production technique but thats not to say that his fan base still adores his music. His up and coming releases will determine the fait and legacy that is Afrojack; So stay tuned as Nick proactively looks to silence his haters with new material.
