GRAMMY Award-winning and multi-platinum-selling dance music icon AFROJACK and Saudi Arabian newcomer EMAD take us on a ride in new single “Off The Wall” via MDLBEAST Records
The record has a very interesting backstory: “Off The Wall” came about as a result of AFROJACK‘s and EMAD‘s collaboration during a writing camp organized by Saudi Arabian label MDLBEAST Records and AFROJACK‘s very own WALL Recordings. The Dutch icon was a guest speaker and mentor to young producers at the camp, during which the participants learned about everything from successful music philosophy to more technical aspects of mixing and mastering. EMAD attended as one of the participants, and voilà – “Off The Wall” was born by organic inspiration.
The track’s multi-textural elements make it both soulful, groovy, and hard-hitting; it opens with distorted vocals that lead into a signature AFROJACK-inspired drop with synth-led melodies and mechanical riffs. “Off The Wall” is the perfect record for packing festival dancefloors this season as well as more intimate clubs and represents two forward-thinking labels (MDLBEAST Records and WALL Recordings) collaborating on bringing people together, exchanging ideas, and making incredible music.
