He's back. Feels like a minute since I've seen or heard anything from Afrojack. Teaming up with Ty Dolla $ign, they bring us 'Gone', the track strikes an interest balance between tropical house and rap track. Interesting to see Afrojack getting behind a different sound. As a bonus I also threw in his recent remix of Bieber's 'Cold Water'.
It's a crying shame Stockholm's Oliver Nelson didn't release this one a couple months earlier as it's fit for sipping cold ones in the sun. Ain't A Thing is a funky poolside disco track packing a ton of groove with Kaleem Taylor's fantastic vocals riding perfectly on top. Packed with smooth keys and a tasty baseline, this one is guaranteed to get your hips shakin'. Let's pray there are a couple more hot days left before fall sets in so we can bang it poolside.
I caught St. Lucia this summer at OSL. Have to say left a much bigger fan. This remix of Elevate by John Wizards only continues to build on my obsession. Balancing analog and digital the track has a unique hip-hop, jazz vibe that completely flips the original on it's head. There is just too much interesting going on!
