The James Clubhouse in North Las Vegas holds a weekly DJ class in order to teach the members valuable lessons from musical theory, computer technology and principles of business. He was a special surprise to the 20 kids who were working away when the nearly 7’ tall Grammy Award-winning producer walked in. He spent almost an hour telling the members how he got his start in music to explaining his own humble background. He provided messages of encouragement by explaining that no one is at a disadvantage if they work hard, and there is only one life to live so make the most of it.

The teens were squirming with excitement to fire questions at him and lined up for autographs. A great sport, Afrojack even posed for “selfie” photos on the kids phones, signed their phone cases and left one special autographed vinyl record behind for the group. They also asked if he could sing at which point he attempted to serenade them with “Give Me Everything (Tonight),” a fitting tune as it was the song he produced with Ne-Yo, a BGCLV alumni. Only getting a few lyrics in before the entire group burst into laughter, he quickly went back to talking about producing and making music, rather than singing.

Following his weekend sets at XS Nightclub, Afrojack decided to stay in town for the entire week leading up to his performance at Electric Daisy Carnival this weekend, making time for the special visit in his schedule. Afrojack will also be speaking on the artist panel at EDMbiz, the business conference in conjunction with EDC Week, before he plays for a crowd of 115,000 revelers at the annual EDC at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. He will close the weekend on Monday with a special back-to-back set at XS with Diplo.
