Afrojack ready to span genres in Hollywood

November 22, 2012

MUSIC

One young producer who's found an ever-growing EDM space in America is Nick van de Wall, the 24-year-old DJ who performs as Afrojack. Even non-EDM fans have probably heard his work, as he's helmed Pitbull and Ne-Yo's hands-up single "Give Me Everything" and Beyoncé's drum-clattering smash "Run the World" with producer-peers Diplo and the-Dream. The tens of thousands of people who caught his set on Electric Daisy Carnival's main stage reveled in his genre-spanning mixes, in which sandblasted bass lines dissolved into fizzy trance anthems, which bumped up against hard house and Europhile sleekness. Hollywood Palladium, 6215 Sunset Blvd., L.A. 9 p.m. Fri. $45. Livenation.com
