“On a afternoon somewhere in the beginning of 2007 two friends decided to join forces, one DJ and one producer, both sharing great passion for music.. Bassjackers was born..!”
Bassjackers, a.k.a. Marlon Flohr and Ralph van Hilst, had not foreseen what was coming when they started out with their collaboration. Marlon was already DJ-ing for a while and Ralph experimented a lot with making different kinds of dance music. Marlon was mainly playing house music at the time and then the idea came to push Ralphs productions in that direction, so that Marlon could play the tracks in his sets. The first track they were both satisfied with was ‘Beat Cut’.
‘Beat Cut’ got picked up by Fedde le Grand and from then on things went real fast. They recently did remixes for the biggest artists, for example the remix for Dada Life which reached a #1 position in the “Hypem” charts and an official remix for Martin Solveigs monster hit ‘Hello’. They released their tracks on various labels like Spinnin Records, Samsobeats, DimMak, which were supported by the worlds greatest DJs. From Tiesto to Steve Aoki, from David Guetta to Claude Vonstroke, everybody loves the Bassjackers bangers. Also famous rapper/producer Jeremaine Dupri noticed Bassjackers, he decided to rap on top of a Bassjackers beat and put it on his blog.
On the DJ side Bassjackers are rocking as hard as in the studio! Ralph produces the tracks and Marlon takes the stage! Since they started out they already had over 400 gigs in Holland and the past couple of years they are also playing a lot abroad. They had gigs in Turkey, Spain, Bulgaria, Germany, Belgium and recently they did a tour in Australia. They played for crowds varying from 200 till over 10.000 people, but the impact is always the same.. Bassjackers will blow you away!!
The future has a lot in stock for Bassjackers, their forthcoming release ‘Mush Mush’ on Tiesto’s label Musical Freedom was huge at the Miami Music Week 2011 and is already supported by Tiesto, Sander van Doorn, Benny Benassi, Dada Life, Sidney Samson and many more. Another release will be expected soon and will drop on Afrojack’s Wall recordings, this one also gained massive support already and Tiesto even did his own private bootleg on one of the tracks. Next to these releases they have done a lot of remixing for high profile artists, and some serious collaborations, so beware..
With booking requests, remix requests and collab requests from all over the world we can easily say: Bassjackers are on fire!!!
