AfroJacked: DJ Drops New Trap Single With Jay Karama, "Diamonds"
By now, Afrojack has mastered the art of pairing honest lyrical content with beats that transform a mere musical projection of soul into a club banger.
Whether via sweet EDM ode “Ten Feet Tall,” or his intense Martin Garrix collab, “Turn Up The Speakers,” Afrojack has cultivated a certain style, namely one that rests within the categories of progressive and electro house music. And that’s exactly why we had to take a second glance at the names credited on new 2017 trap single, “Diamonds.”
“Diamonds” couples the intelligences of Afrojack and Austrailian native, Jay Karama, a partnership that—however surprisingly—culminates in the production of a track that is defined by heavy drops that remind us somewhat of Flosstradamus’ style. It’s not that we didn’t think Afrojack had trap abilities buried under “Used to Have It All” sentiments, it’s that we didn’t expect said abilities to materialize as darkly as they do within “Diamonds.” Sample the track's rough edges below, in their trappy 24 karat glory.
