With the release of the Press Play EP on the horizon, Afrojack has gifted fans with another massive single dubbed “Bassride”!


One of the world’s most sought-after electronic artists, Afrojack has continued on his path of producing music in new directions while performing at venues around the globe. Taking the stage at major festivals this summer like EDC Las Vegas, Untold Festival, and Tomorrowland, he has played out plenty of dance floor stompers along the way. These sets have included some tunes off his forthcoming Press Play EP, and today he’s gifted fans with the official release of “Bassride”.

True to its name, “Bassride” is a track that will have you strapped in and feeling like you’re on a roller coaster as the track progresses. The bass house elements that keep the pace will have your head bobbing right alongside the tune, and if you want any indication of how it can make a crowd go wild, check out his set from Tomorrowland this year!

This release shows off the difference in style compared to “Step Back” which dropped earlier this month with the announcement the EP. While “Step Back” features the vocals of MC Ambush paired with a far more aggressive style, “Bassride” lets the music do the talking and brings the energy without being too in your face. Listen to the track below and read on for more of what Afrojack has been up to lately!
