Nick Van De Wall aka Afrojack’s set on Saturday evening at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival was always going to be one of the highlights of this years festival. Afro is no stranger to a prime-time Saturday night after dark slot on the famous Miami mainstage. What we witnessed though, was something truly remarkable.
Opening with a superbly crafted atmospheric intro that gradually builds to a dramatic high, Afrojack, appearing behind the ones and twos dressed aptly in hoodie and cap, takes to the mic to ask the capacity crowd ‘who’s ready for some Afrojack music?’
From there an eclectic and smoothly blended concoction of electro, future bass, bass house, trap, mashups, remixes and new ID’s from his label Wall Recordings, flowed effortlessly from the Dutchman, with MC Ambush adding his tones to hype the crowd. There were a few classics such as Martin Garrix & Afrojack – Turn Up The Speakers and Afrojack – Bangduck thrown in as sure-fire favourites.
Guest appearances during Afrojack’s hour long set included O.T. Genasis, Ty Dolla $ign, Belly and Stanaj
Noteworthy was a David Guetta & Afrojack remix of Coldplay & The Chainsmokers – Something Just Like This, David Guetta & Afrojack – Another Life and a hard electro ID by KIIDA & NLW rumoured to be signed to Wall Recordings.
