AMSTERDAM, April 26, 2019 – Less than a year after turning heads across the dance music realm with debut link-up ‘One More Day’ and their successful follow-up ‘When You’re Gone’, Afrojack and Jewelz & Sparks are entering the third chapter of their joint saga. Today, the multi-award-winning Dutchman and the German electronic music pair teamed up with songstress Emmalyn for a brand-new single called ‘Switch’, which comes with a music video starring none other than Brazilian top model Lais Ribeiro.
A bold and innovative offering soon to set dance music culture ablaze, ‘Switch’ is a record that transcends the airwaves and club circuit alike. With a raw, dynamic bassline, luxurious vocals and a daring, hooking arrangement, ‘Switch’ is poised to place its creators at the forefront of the genre’s future. In the music video, a leading role is taken on by Lais Ribeiro, who’s best known for her work as a Victoria’s Secret Angel and performed in fashion shows for Shiatzy Chen, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Marc Jacobs and more. On Instagram alone, she has amassed over 2.1 million followers.
“I am so thrilled to be part of this music video with Afrojack, my first ever”, says Lais Ribeiro. “Anyone who knows me knows that I am always dancing and ready to have fun. When Afrojack approached me about being part of it, of course it was an immediate yes. I can’t wait for everyone to see the vibrant colors and visual imagery we used. It’s beautiful and outrageous!“
Named the #8 DJ in the world by DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll of 2018 (marking his eight consecutive year of appearing in the Top 12), Afrojack is one of the most popular dance music acts of today and a sought-after producer. Throughout the years, he has worked with everyone from Pitbull to Sting and Chris Brown, won a Grammy for his and David Guetta’s remix of Madonna’s ‘Revolver’, and released an array of diverse hits, including ‘Bad Company’ with Dirtcaps, ‘Helium’ with David Guetta and Sia, and a remix of U2’s iconic ‘Get Out Of Your Own Way’. This year, having just released a new collab with Stanaj and Rae Sremmurd in addition to ‘Switch’, Afrojack continues to follow suit, dominates dance floors across the globe.
Hailing from Germany, Jewelz & Sparks have been on many a dance music fan’s shortlist since 2012. Sporting a signature sound that hits freakishly hard in their productions as well as their live sets, they’ve rocked more than ten of DJ Mag’s Top 100 clubs (in addition to holding a residency at Club Octagon – #6 in the list) and continually wreak havoc on the mainstages of globally esteemed festivals such as Ultra Europe and TomorrowWorld. With a track record that includes remixes for the likes of The Chainsmokers (‘Paris’), Benny Benassi (‘Satisfaction’) and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike (‘The Hum’), releases on the labels of superstar DJs such as Calvin Harris, Hardwell and Tiësto, and collaborations with trailblazers such as Fedde Le Grand, Hardwell and Afrojack, it’s safe to say these guys are skyrocketing to the top with the intention of staying put once they’ve reached it.
