Blasterjaxx have been pumping out quality new music in 2017 and their release of “Temple” keeps the trend going in a big way! 1001tracklists chatted with the guys about their latest releases and with Tomorrowland upcoming, they have no plans of slowing down!
Can you talk a little bit about how you guys selected the vocal sample for “Temple” and then how that influenced the production?
“We started this tune from scratch before we even had the drop for it. The vocal was originally from a sample pack, but didn’t fit to the whole vibe of the track back then. After we played around with the melody (which is one of our old melodies from 2010), it all came together and felt really natural and that’s how “Temple” was born.”
How have you been using “Temple” in your sets and how has it gone down?
“It’s working great, especially for in the beginning of our set. It’s not too hard and still very Blasterjaxx and groovy. The second break is beautiful and still driving at the same time, so it doesn’t really ‘kill’ the groove.”
It was so awesome that you guys gave away the Booster Pack [free download] as a thank you for the fans – can you talk a little bit more about the motivation behind that?
“This answer is easy… we had too much good music laying down in our studio so we decided to give some back to the people.”
How did you select “IHNI” and “Malefic” as the tracks to give away? I remember hearing “INHI” a few years ago and loving that track, awesome to have it out now after a few years!
“Those were tracks we still got requests for, so we decided to finish the tracks and release them for free.”
What’s been your favorite show thus far this summer and which are you looking forward to most? Why?
“We’ve done many amazing shows already this summer with the festivals in Russia and Portugal the most amazing so far. Tomorrowland is around the corner so really excited for this one too!!”
We’ve seen some big IDs from you guys in your sets this summer and with Tomorrowland coming up fast, any hints you can tell us about some new music and IDs we might hear you playing there?
“All we can say is: Tomorrowland = New Blasterjaxx ID fest haha! Keep an eye out on our tracklist for that one!”
