Review: Afrojack teams up with Dim Mak boss Steve Aoki for this supercharged slice of Dutch house. Riding a brutal and minimal chopped synth line complete with tropical drum hits, the pair smooth out the madness for the Bjork-like choruses from singer Alyssa Palmer before returning to the hypeness. Among the mixes, Gigamesh construct a whole new soft-rock/Italo disco backing for Miss Palmer's vocals while on-fire jungle revivalist and D&B don NuTone creates a beautifully sub-punishing mix that again makes great use of those original vocals.
Air Guitar (Ultra Music Festival Anthem) - (6:14) 131 BPM
Review: America's leading dance label for many years, and a global leader in large scale events, Ultra follow two weekends of their flagship UMF Miami event seeing over 400,000 dance music fans witness the biggest DJs in the world. As if that wasn't enough they have put together a equally large compilation album and upon it featured some of the biggest stars to produce totally exclusive tracks. One such name is Afrojack, with the rocking 'Air Guitar'.. which seriously kicks. Distorted electric guitar licks and heavy electro flavours pound the senses and speakers making it an instant dancefloor weapon. Check out the full compilation too for even more party fireworks.
Review: The subject of intense discussion since early airings last December, Afrojack chose Ultra to really hammer this new anthem home and it's been on repeat ever since. "Air Guitar" is a dynamic stomper that builds from an infectious, stripped back rhythm to a deep, driving bassline to an outrageous, full-flavoured riff by way of a dreamy breakdown. A heady injection of instant chaos, Afrojack is on firing form right here.
