Producer and DJ Afrojack, a headlining artist at Ultra Music Festival 2014, marked a momentous day in his thriving career on March 28th, as he launched not one, but two major projects. In front of a swarming crowd of fans, Afrojack, alongside his fleet of “Afrojack Lamborghinis,” launched his Spring/Summer 2014 collection with G-Star RAW at the Miami G-Star store. This is the second collection between Afrojack and G-Star, after their first collection sold out within 48 hours. The Spring/Summer ’14 line is available worldwide online and in stores now.

Afrojack continued his pivotal day by impressing music industry influencers from all over the world as they gathered at an intimate, VIP-only listening party for his upcoming debut album “Forget The World,” set to release worldwide on May 19th on Island Def Jam. Guests mingled with the Grammy-winner at the W Hotel’s Wall Lounge, while receiving an exclusive first listen to tracks off of the forthcoming album. VIP guests then joined fans for a special live performance from Afrojack at the W Hotel’s Wet Deck, where he showcased some of the soon-to-be hit tracks from “Forget The World.”

Grammy Award-winning producer and DJ, Afrojack, is one of the most influential names in electronic dance music today. At only 26 years old, he has played a large role in the worldwide explosion and popularity of dance music with The Hollywood Reporter recently calling him ‘’a global icon’’ set ‘’to conquer the world" and in 2013 Forbes placed him #7 on its annual list of ‘The World’s Highest Paid DJs.' Afrojack exploded onto the scene in 2011 with ‘Take Over Control’ - an instant worldwide hit that reached platinum status in the U.S – and from there the success continued. Afrojack has co-written and produced hits with the likes of David Guetta for ‘Titanium', Pitbull and Ne-Yo for ‘Give Me Everything’ and numerous other artists including Beyonce, Chris Brown, Madonna, and Will I am.

In 2013 Afrojack signed to Island Records and will release his debut album ‘Forget The World’ on May 19th (Wall Records & Island Def Jam). He recently released his lead single from the album, "Ten Feet Tall" featuring Wrabel (http://smarturl.it/iTenFeetTall). Afrojack can be seen headlining at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival on Sunday, March 30th, where fans will get a taste of what they can expect from the upcoming album.
