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”.
