Following the release of an exclusive teaser EP via Spotify on May 12th, virtuoso producer/DJ Afrojack is proud to present his inaugural major album project, ‘Forget The World’ on May 19th. Comprised of 12 tracks, with a further 4 featuring on the album’s deluxe edition, ‘Forget The World’ offers up a wonderful mix of dance floor styles that illustrate every inch of Afrojack’s musical pedigree.
Thoughtful and measured in it’s approach, it’s an album that sees Afrojack bridge the gap between the dance floor and home listening, enlisting a whole collection of star names to collaborate on a body of tracks that go beyond the realms of conventional dance music production. Hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg, legendary Police frontman Sting, global chart-topper Chris Brown, US rapper Whiz Khalifa, rising star Matthew Koma and revered rockers 30 Seconds To Mars are just some of the names that contribute to making ‘Forget The World’ a thoroughly absorbing debut.
From the soaring, anthemic feel of opener ‘Ten Feet Tall’, a track that received it’s world premiere during Superbowl XLVIII in February, the acoustic leanings of euphoric, synth-rich club track ‘The Spark’ and electro-house flavoured trap beats with Snoop Dogg on ‘Dynamite’, Afrojack showcases an exploratory new side to his production remit right across ‘Forget The World’. The softer notes and soundscape-like composition on ‘Mexico’, featuring a stunning vocal from Shirazi, is also a highlight and one that contrasts perfectly with the harder, club-centric sound of his rip-roaring ‘Do Or Die’ remix.
Further defined by more intriguing collaborations, ‘Forget The World’ also plays host to the stripped back sounds of ‘Too Wild’ featuring Whiz Khalifa & Devin Cruise, two bold, exhilarating club tracks alongside much sought-after vocalist Matthew Koma and the incredible ‘Catch Tomorrow’, featuring iconic frontman Sting.
The sheer range of collaborators, sounds, influences and production styles that Afrojack exhibits across his debut album are indicative of an artist keen to make his music as accessible as it is ground-breaking. Delivered with a firm message for fans to literally ‘Forget The World’ and follow their dreams, it is a body of work that explores Afrojack’s infectious, feel-good outlook in more ways than ever before.
