Grammy Nomination – Afrojack

Afrojack (Nick van de Wall) is nominated as “Best Remixer” for his work on Leona Lewis’ song “Collide.” The remix, which was released last July on J Records, became an instant sensation and is still riding a wave of success in clubs and through radio airplay across the globe.

When given the news an elated Nick van de Wall had this to say:
“I can’t believe the news!!  To be nominated again is incredible!  This is a real honor…thank YOU!!!” –Afrojack

Afrojack was nominated (and subsequently won) his first Grammy in the same category this past February for his and David Guetta’s remix of Madonna’s “Revolver.” Afrojack also worked on several high profile songs this year that have been recognized by The Recording Academy with Grammy nominations.

Although not personally nominated for his work, he is proud to have had a hand in these significant records:

Chris Brown’s  “Look At Me Now” which is vying for “Best Rap Performace” and “Best Rap Song” respectively. (Afrojack is a co-producer on the song)
Nothing But The Beat by David Guetta, which is up for “Best Electronica Album” (Afrojack is a co-producer on the songs: “Titanium,” “Lunar,” “The Future” and “I Just Wanna”)

2011 is the year of the electronic musician, with the numerous accolades, features, sold out festivals and now Grammy nominations for the genre and its artists.  One of the music industry’s most recognized names and undeniably charismatic personalities, Diplo, has been nominated for his second Grammy (previously nominated for M.I.A.’s ‘Paper Planes’) as producer for Chris Brown’s three times nominated “Look At Me Now.” The Rap Song of the Year nominee infiltrated clubs and radio waves and garnered over 132 million views on YouTube, arguably one of the biggest hits of the year.
Diplo wears many hats and there will be no shortage of projects to follow in 2012.  In addition to working with everyone from pop stars, rappers and indie rockers, Diplo is gearing up for the sophomore release from Major Lazer and more world touring.  His record label, Mad Decent, and new label imprint, Jeffrees, will continue to put out some of the most exciting new artist releases, while Diplo continues to pen his online column for Vanity Fair, as well as the release of his first book with photographer Shane McCauley through Rizzoli.
Congratulations to Diplo and all his fellow Grammy nominees!
