2013 is going to be an outstanding year for EDM. Being only 9 days in to the New Year, listeners already have ID’s on ID’s and new artists blowing up left and right. People always ask me the same question, “Which artists do you think are going to blow up in 2013?” My answer is followed by a huge list of some familiar names and some not so familiar names.
Enter one of my favorite duo’s, Bassjackers. Obviously being one of the familiar names on my list, they’re known for their raw heavy electro sound that both fans and producers have learned to absolutely adore. Why look out for Bassjackers? Well for starters they have support from the likes of Tiesto, Swedish House Mafia, Afrojack, Dada Life, Benny Benassi, Calvin Harris and many, many more.
With 2012 having various banging releases like the infamous ‘RIA’ with Indonesia’s own Angger Dimas to ‘Bronx’with Yves V all the way to their more recent release (‘Hey’) with Holland’s Hardstyle duo, Showtek, the Bassjackers aren’t going to stop there with just two major hits.
As mentioned earlier, only being 9 days into the New Year, we have 2 new tracks from the duo fresh for your picking. First one is something that’s been under circulation for a while going around as an ID with another person on my list, Dyro. This track, titled ‘Grid’ builds beautifully, and then drops into a progressively dark electro banger, showing off both of the finer aspects of both the producers.
The 2nd track may come as a surprise to many, as it did for me. Trance maven Ferry Corsten decided to have a collab with the duo, and it’s surprisingly heavy. This collaboration came out of nowhere, being premiered as their encore in their recent NYE party for Dada Life but can be traced back to the 2011 remix that the Bassjackers did for Corsten for his track ‘Check It Out”.
