By now you’ve inevitably seen the video of Paris Hilton “DJing” in Brazil, but what you haven’t seen is Afrojack’s official reaction. Well, we’ve received an exclusive statement from the Dutch mega DJ meant to set the record straight. He writes that he worked on some tracks with Paris “a while ago, but her trying to become a DJ was a complete surprise to me.”

It is simply not possible to become a good DJ unless you put lots of hard work and years of sweat in it.

In reaction to the footage online, he remarks that “this proves once and for all that edm (or dance music as I call it) is all about skills and quality.” He is afraid that Paris “underestimated” the hard work, time, and energy needed to become a good DJ, and asks everyone to “continue with what we’re doing, loving our culture and sharing our passion for the music.” Damn straight.

Full, unedited statement straight from Mr. Van de Wall after the break.

Update: Afrojack has spoken to Danny Valentino at SiriusXM about the split as well. Nick says that “everyone should do what makes them happy,” but reinforces the fact that it’s hard work and that you need to know what you’re doing. He also confirms that her set was pre-recorded, if there were any doubts out there.

We hope your management doesn’t kill you Afrojack, you’re way too awesome.

As everybody knows, I have been working on some tracks with Paris a while ago, but her trying to become a DJ was a complete surprise to me. Then I saw the video and I think this proves once and for all that edm (or dance music as I call it) is all about skills and quality. It is simply not possible to become a good DJ unless you put lots of hard work and years of sweat in it. I’m afraid Paris underestimated this.

But I think this whole thing is really not important. Lets all do a giant facepalm flashmob and continue with what we were doing, loving our culture and sharing our passion for the music.
