While all eyes may have temporarily fallen on his knack for writing off Italian sports cars, Dutch heavyweight turned audacious production maverick Afrojack comes out with his official Ultra Music Festival anthem of the year, titled “Air Guitar”. Dropping his usual bleep-happy emphasis for a concoction of darting leads and grinding chords, “Air Guitar” holds its corner as a fine Dutch house calling card to the stadiumesque properties now open to modern dance music. Setting in motion the anticipation towards his forthcoming full-length album, which is said to drop next month, this latest Ultra Music home run is sure to prove a peak time favorite throughout WMC.
Out today on Beatport.
