Having balanced break neck touring duties with the deployment of his head-turning single ‘Rock The House’, the reputable Wall Recordings flagbearer returns to take on the vocal stylings of Eva Simons once again with a cliché bending remix for Will.I.Am’s chart-topping single ‘This Is Love’. While the studio output of Afrojack has remained inherently characteristic of his national House stylings, his latest step up to realms of popular music packs a few surprises along the way.
Launching from the familiar melodic builds that have pervaded his own personal arsenal of tracks, this heavyset remodel sees the Wall Recordings head honcho dive deeper into the realms of Electro House, replacing the scattered lead work with surging chords and powerful beat work throughout. Furthering the Dutch heavyweights ability to mirror the minority in his own unique manner, his personal take on Will.I.Am’s latest exploit suggests that the road to Afrojack’s hotly anticipated debut album may hold a few more unsuspecting eye-openers.
