Yesterday saw producer and DJ Afrojack ring the Closing Bell at Nasdaq MarketSite, in New York’s Time Square as SFX, the electronic dance music promotions company, went public. As one of the key influencers in the Electronic Music Industry, Afrojack represented this long anticipated move by ringing the iconic bell, which marked the close of trade, at 4.00pm ET.
Speaking about ringing the closing bell at the Nasdaq Afrojack said, “It’s incredible to see how far this scene has come, from being fairly underground just five years ago, to being a billion dollar business today. It’s great to work with SFX and I wish them lots of luck with their venture.”
This iconic week will be topped off by the release of Afrojack’s newest single, The Spark, available worldwide on iTunes on October 11th. The track, featuring Spree Wilson, showcases infectious beats, larger than life production, killer pop hooks and euphoric melodies, giving a taste of what we can expect from his inaugural album, due for release in early 2014.
