Sitting atop the ladder of electronic music, DJ/Producer Afrojack has rolled out his newest roster of music, this time around as his monumental 14-track Press Play EP, officially out now and is also being released on Wall Recordings.
Known for his booming sound, emotive songs, and roaring high energy live performances, Afrojack is truly a jewel of the electronic industry. 2018 has been full of new music, and headlining sets at several of the world’s biggest music festivals like Ultra, EDC Las Vegas, and Tomorrowland, just to name a few. Additionally, the Dutch legend has released a thrilling series of new music this year including original singles “Bed Of Roses” and “Step Back,” as well as epic collaborations with Jewelz & Sparks for “One More Day” and “Where Did The Love Go” with Chico Rose. The Grammy-Winning artist has spent his decade in the electronic music scene constantly upping the ante of his own sound, and lest we forget his mecca record label Wall Recordings that recently boasted four new slam dunk artist additions.
Since its release last weekend, Press Play is already exceeding expectations and has gone above and beyond to finally showcase the sounds and songs fans have been hearing in live sets already this year. Keeping crowds across the globe in suspense all year, Afrojack went all in for this EP, dropping an enormous variety of styles, featured artists, and more original anthems. While some have been previously released, Press Play is chalk full of fresh tunes that exhibit cross-genre dance music from massive club bangers, to melodic driven harmonies. Ones like “Let It Rip” and “Own Game” are just begging to slay nightclubs, while fans taste a sweet dose of progressive-house flavored music with “When You’re Gone” and “2012.”
“For me, this was more of a journey to show a different side of me with the different styles of music I’ve been doing. I’ve been playing a lot of tracks with the new artists I signed to my label in my sets, so it made sense to put out all of the music fans have been hearing since Ultra this year on the EP. You’ll hear familiar and unfamiliar sounds with some great artists and I can’t wait for the fans to hear it all.” – Afrojack
With a title fixated on pure intent, Press Play is succeeding as just that. The mega EP is stacked with enough Afrojack to not only stay on repeat, but get better and better with every full listen. This versatile mix is yet another creative masterpiece by the man himself, encapsulating Afrojack’s visionary mindset and soul soaring world of electronic music. He remains in it to win it whether dropping new crowd favorites, or a sensation of a 14-track EP like Press Play.
