This past year has been a whirlwind for Dutch electronic music producer and techno-house DJ Afrojack, AKA Van de Wall. In addition to constantly touring the States and sitting on a treasure trove of unreleased tracks, including collaborations with Tiësto, Steve Aoki, and Omarion, the international party maestro has landed some major crossover success in the form of two — count 'em: two — MTV Video Music Award nominations for Pitbull's "Give Me Everything" and Chris Brown's "Look at Me Now."
This Saturday, Miami will get a taste of Afrojack's unwavering momentum when de Wall unleashes bona fide bangers at South Beach megaclub Mansion. You know the deal: The women are beautiful and the men smell like designer suitcases. Thick globs of pomade run down sweaty foreheads. But no one cares, because Afrojack is pumping meaty Mortal Kombat-worthy jams through the state-of-the-art sound system. And goddamn, you feel cooler than Sub-Zero. Those amphetamines are finally kicking in, making you clench your teeth like a hogtied gator.
