Blasterjaxx and bangers are almost synonymous; the Dutch duo of Them Jongkind and Idir Makhlaf redefined sounds with classics like “Bomberjack,” “Titan,” and “Rocket.” They ended last year with the massive “Narco,” an actually dope track built around an insane drop. They realized that “something was missing” and so they hooked up with Timmy Trumpet. It “took us a while recording with live instruments.” Listening to the epic banger, it was worth the wait.
Though there is a softer side to them as we all experienced last year, with their brilliant back to back melodic pop singles “All I Ever Wanted” and “Bizarre.” They received the vocals for “Bizarre” and were sold immediately as they started “working on it right away.” We “came up with the melody and it went really fast.”
We dove deep into the music they play in club sets and they mentioned that “three year-old EDM bangers always work- and of course, our tracks.” Even though they travel the world as superstar DJs, they are surprisingly down to earth and have a great sense of humor. The one thing they can’t live without when they travel is showers and regardless of their bad experiences with eating salmon, they still enjoy it. Though, we bet they would rather have licorice.
