Afrojack’s ‘Jacked’ European Summer Tour 2012

Afrojack, one of the world’s most prominent DJs and producers, is about to set off on the largest European summer tour in his career. For over two months, Afrojack will cross almost every border in Europe to play the continent’s most prestigious festivals and venues starting on the sixth of July. Afrojack will visit nineteen different countries in less than three months to play at an imposing total of over forty shows including Tomorrowland (Belgium), Creamfields (England), Balaton Sound (Hungary) and Global Gathering (England and Ukraine).

Besides playing at Europe’s most anticipated summer events, Afrojack adds several of his own ‘Jacked’ events to his hectic schedule. The ‘Jacked’ events at Ibiza’s legendary club Amnesia, BCM Mallorca and a ‘Jacked’ take-over during ‘F*** Me I’m Famous’ at Pacha Ibiza – hosted by world’s #1 DJ David Guetta – are assured highlights of Afrojack’s extensive summer tour.

Since the foundation of Afrojack’s ‘Jacked’ in July 2011, the party concept has expanded to one of world’s most popular club nights. R3hab, Shermanology, Apster and Bobby Burns, who all form a part of Afrojack’s valued imprint Wall Recordings, will join Afrojack during the upcoming ‘Jacked’ events and select dates of the tour.

Afrojack returns to Europe right after his first own ‘Jacked’ tour in North America. The #7 of DJ Mag’s Top 100 hosted over 40 of his infamous ‘Jacked’ parties in cities like Miami, Las Vegas, Chicago, New York and Atlantic City. In addition to his own tour dates, Afrojack delivered mind-blowing performances at multiple major American festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, Electric Daisy Carnival New York and Coachella.

Soon after this summer tour, Afrojack will release his long awaited album. Afrojack produced the album earlier this year during his stay in Los Angeles and will include collaborations with a number of world known artists. Afrojack will surely preview tracks of this forthcoming album during his shows in the next months.

Cream Ibiza Above & Beyond

World clubbing super-brand Cream kicks off the summer season with a double CD and digital release, Cream Ibiza mixed by award-winning trio Above & Beyond.

As the longest running UK club night on the island, taking over Thursday nights, Cream Ibiza brings together the world’s top DJs and thousands of clubbers to the award winning ‘World’s Best Club’ Amnesia. With mammoth weekly parties that will see Above & Beyond joined by the likes of Paul van Dyk, Eddie Halliwell, Calvin Harris, Sander van Doorn, Laidback Luke, and Example at the club this summer.

Described by DJ Mag as “the biggest electronic DJing and production collective the UK has ever produced,” Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamaki AKA Above & Beyond made an obvious choice for this year’s installment of the Cream compilation series.

Producers, songwriters, DJ’s and owners of the renowned Anjunabeats label, Above & Beyond have remained down-to-earth and as determined as ever despite the numerous accolades, remixing greats like Madonna and Radiohead and selling out shows from Bombay to Brixton Academy. 2011 saw the release of their second studio album Group Therapy. Described by Mixmag as “the artist album of the year”, it topped the dance charts in both the UK and USA.

Now they are set to perform at Cream Ibiza this summer, headlining six dates through June to September. Whether you’re heading over to the White Isle or not, Above & Beyond’s Cream Ibiza mix is essential listening for the summer.

This year’s Cream Ibiza tracklist perfectly reflects the ethos of Above & Beyond, taking in their biggest tried and tested tunes, fan favourites and exclusive new tracks – all guaranteed main room Ibiza material. Alongside hot tracks from the likes of Cosmic Gate, Dirty South, Kyau & Albert and Depeche Mode (Eric Prydz Remix) Cream Ibiza also features exclusive new mixes of Above & Beyond’s Stealing Time (from the critically acclaimed debut album Tri-State) and On My Way To Heaven, plus brand new remixes of Tranquillity Base (aka Above & Beyond)  Razorfish by Jerome Isma-Ae and of the Above & Beyond and Andy Moor classic “Air For Life” by Norin & Rad.

Introducing: Barry Fore

Ready to book this one ? Barry Fore has no average DJ profile. His love for the nightlife started in the early 90s when house music slowly entered numerous clubs worldwide. Besides going out he began to mix and produce tapes for his friends while working in clubs for the love of music, to keep himself in the epic centre of electronic sounds each weekend and to save some money.

Being busy managing clubs and events for 12 years now his passion for perfection soon led to the turntables during closing hours and special parties which ultimately turned out to sets in numerous clubs and festivals like Tomorrowland 2004 – 2012 , Sensation White , Voodoo Dubai , Cityparade and Ibiza .

Describing his style is quite tricky as he only aims for the crowd to move and enjoy themselves on the dance floor without getting cheesy on the decks. His sets are like a step into the unknown depths : you never know what your gonna get. Naturally his record collection contains soulful house, groove, electro, techno and minimal sounds, blended with a fling of classy acapellas.

Check out his latest project www.dance-tunes.com one of the largest music portals in Benelux.

Introducing: Lady Bee

One of the most wanted MC’s in the Netherlands, Lady Bee (Bianca Latupapua) is well known for her energetic, powerful voice and spontaneous appearance during many DJ sets in any kind of dance-scene.

With her style, lyrics on the beat, singing, rhyming and shouting she’s always able to please and hype up the crowd. Bee started to MC in the UK-garage and Drum and Bass scene. In 2002 she became part of the Splendid-crew and was one of the resident MC’s at the Speedfreax parties. At that time she made several 2step tracks published on the UK sound compilation CD, mixed by the Partysquad. Later on she became interested in House Music, and did increasingly more MC gigs for House and Club DJ’s.


In late 2005 she came in contact with DJ Erick-E who introduced her to 1Management. Bee released several featuring tracks with producers Sidney Samson, Hardwell, Youri Donatz and Laidback Luke. Currently she’s working on her own album. Besides her gigs in clubs, she also performed at big festivals in the Netherlands like Mysteryland, Dancevalley, Lake Dance Festival, Emporium and Solar Festival. She worked with many international DJ’s like Fedde le Grand, Sidney Samson, Afrojack and Laidback Luke. Her fame was starting to spread beyond the Netherlands. It was at this point that Bee’s international career really took off in earnest.

Now, 10 years later Lady Bee decides to step up and twist her career. MC Lady Bee is now transformed into DJ Lady Bee! Although her career as a MC isn’t over, she’s determined to blow the speakers up in every club.

Her love towards becoming a DJ started in 2002 where she only could find the right music on Vinyl records.  So she bought turntables and thats when her love and passion for music started growing.  Bee’s style will literally drag you across the room. It goes from house to urban to dubstep. What to expect from her mixes? A feminine, sexy and though mix with balls.

This lady is ready to be one of the few feminine DJ’s and conquer the world with her delicious mixing skills and mind blowing productions.

Introducing: DJ Ben Santiago

Ben Santiago is one of the White Isle’s most prolific DJs. Since moving to Ibiza seven years ago he has held a number of enviable residencies and played for the biggest brands in the industry, including; Café del Mar, Cream, Pacha, Base Bar, El Divino, Ibiza Rocks, Cocoon, Amnesia, Es Vive, Manumission, and Hed Kandi – who  have appointed him Ibiza resident for the third year running at their parties at Es Paradis in 2012. He is also an official A&R scout for Hed Kandi / Ministry of Sound, helping compile the music for their world famous compilations.

Internationally, Ben is musical director for Berlin Fashion Week and spins at fashion shows and private soirées for Dolce & Gabbana throughout Europe and Asia alongside saxophonist (and fiancée) Lovely Laura. The pair are also signed to Storm models and perform all over the world at exclusive events for A-list clients such as supermodel Eva Herzigova and Pink Floyd.

Appreciated for his truly Balearic approach (as showcased on his weekly Ministry Of Sound radio show and guest mix on Hed Kandi’s Beach House 2011), Ben is just as passionate spinning eclectic sets at villa and beach parties or on catwalks and yachts as he is delivering straight up house tunes in a club. His success is based on a simple premise: “Whatever the genre, if a track is going to connect with the audience then I’ll play it…”.
