DJ and producer duo Marlon Flohr and Ralph van Hilst started in 2007, and since then they have collaborated and experimented with different forms of EDM and eventually found house to be their forte. The result is a sound that often starts funky then builds up to light, scratchy synthesisers, microbeats and thumping basslines that go up, down and behind tracks. When they released their first track, ‘Beat Cut’, it got picked up by Fedde Le Grand and that gave them a much needed push into the world of EDM. A solid stream of remixes and tracks followed suit, backed by their statuses on charts, such as their remix for ‘Dada Life’, which scored number one on Hype Machine.
Their eventual big break, however, came in 2011 when the bomb ‘Mush Mush’ got picked up by Tiësto and became part of his ‘Musical Freedom’. The track dominated Beatport Top 10 for over two months, as a result A-listers such as Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Afrojack, Martin Solveig and Calvin Harris had to include Bassjackers in their set. Ready for another big name? Bassjackers also remixed for superstar Rihanna. Jay Chooi
