Usually found harbouring a bottle vodka behind the decks and more formally noted as The Netherlands’ most vigorous Dance music export to date, Nick Van De Wall has not let the party boy getup mess with his distinct club outings. But not too far from his atypical scatty Dutch stylings, Afrojack emerges with a forward-thinking first instalment from his debut full-length album.

While the pitch pervading leads that have characterised his signature sound resonate throughout ‘Rock The House’, the tracks infectious melodic builds and heavyset synth work pull on the heart strings of euphoric Progressive House while still encapsulating the gritty energy more formally associated with Afrojack. Despite all the stereotypes that now surround his craft, Van De Wall sets the anticipation for his debut album to a significant high while showcasing the attributes that have kept him solidly in demand across the globe.
