Afrojack signs to Island

Deals

Afrojack

Dutch dance DJ Afrojack, real name Nick Van De Wall, has signed an international deal with Universal Music and its Island division, in the form of a partnership between the major and his own label Wall Recordings. Island will take over promotion of Van De Wall’s Chris Brown-featuring new single ‘As Your Friend’, so that’s nice.

Says Afrojack: “I want to take my music to the next level, both creatively and from a business point of view. Partnering up with Island Records will give me the chance to do both, so I am very happy we were able to make a deal. Island/UMG will promote my releases with very strong support and with great people working my music around the world”.
