2015 has been a sensational year for fun-loving Dutch duo, Bassjackers. They've toured the globe, released Beatport number ones and even indulged in philanthropy; the duo support The Zoëzo Foundation who help children suffering with Leukaemia.

Music-wise they've collaborated with EDM heavyweights like Afrojack and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, plus hot-tipped up-and-comer KSHMR. They've also teamed up with the best EDM imprints on the block — cue Spinnin', Ministry Of Sound, Revealed and more. It's in America that the duo's sound has translated best — they've charted record crowds at their weekly club residency at The Light in Las Vegas.

For next year, the duo say they'll “be experimenting with some new styles” on their upcoming release and have another gigantic tour in the pipeline for 2016.
