"This year was crazy first of all," Afrojack, aka Nick van de Wall, informs us when we catch up with him during a year in which he declared - to DJMag TV at the Winter Music Conference - that the Dutch are taking over. "I played in so many great clubs and at some of the world's biggest festivals, and production-wise I was able to go into the studio with some of my favorite artists." This includes having spent time working with Estelle, Madonna and the upcoming single for The Black Eyed Peas, as well as remixing the inescapable media manipulator Lady Gaga. Unsurprisingly, this was helped by the fact that 2010 saw him forming a strong working relationship with man of the moment David Guetta, whom Afrojack describes as like an 'older brother'. "We're playing gigs together and trying to make as much new music as possible. We try to keep it fresh rather than making the same old sounds. "Right now I have a lot of unreleased music ready for my label," he adds tantalizingly, having also collaborated with Bobby Burns and TV Rock in recent months, as well as Dutch vocalist Eva Simons on new single 'Take Over Control'. "This year for me was the first year of international touring and sort of getting in touch with my fans who I didn't know I had last year," he says proudly. "This year was for me the greatest start I can think of!"
