Dutch duo Blasterjaxx are currently winding down from a solid festival season that has seen them consolidate their longevity as big room favourites. They‘ve supported appearances at festivals like Tomorrowland and Dance Valley with several high-profile releases.
“Music-wise, we had a really productive year,” they tell DJ Mag. “We released lots of new music on our own Maxximize Records imprint, and the response of our fans has been great.” The label is doing really well, they add, with their next label event scheduled to take place at ADE.
It’s approaching two years since Idir Makhlaf withdrew from touring due to mental health issues, leaving Thom Jongkind to assume DJing duties while they both continue to produce together. While they say it took some getting used to, it’s been a change for the best. “In the end we can both say it works better for us personally, as well as for Blasterjaxx in total.”
