Blasterjaxx have held a pivotal position in the big room sound recently. The duo have developed a sound which is instantly recognisable with their name and they have continued to build a reputation with this. They have now released a huge eight track feature length EP under the ‘XX Files‘ and this is an EP which is set to make a big impact.
Albums are not the current thing, people want singles and they want tracks thick and fast, rather than waiting. Blasterjaxx have provided this with their new EP, releasing a number of singles before delivering the rest of the ‘XX Files’ EP. There are a number of tracks which really stand out on this EP, many of them ready to hit hard at the festival or the main room of a club. One thing is for sure though, wherever these tracks are played, the energy is going to be surreal.
‘Collide‘ is the first single on the EP and it is one which is perfect to really kick start what can be expected with the other seven. Featuring vocalist David Spekter, the big room energy comes through with the tense builds, the huge drop which pours out energy and the melodies which Blasterjaxx are well known for. This is a huge new anthem, and one which is ready to dominate. ‘Black Rose‘ follows this and features renowned vocalist Jonathan Mendelsohn. Again, it follows in similar format to previous Blasterjaxx singles, with huge builds that create the tension, before dropping down into utter chaos and energy. Jonathan’s vocals though add a nice touch to the track, creating a some-what different atmosphere.
Other stand out tracks include the likes of ‘More’ which features vocals from Mister Blonde, which work so well with the style of track Blasterjaxx bring across. ‘Demon Eyes’, ‘Revelation’ and ‘Nightfall’ are all tracks which stand out. However the whole ‘XX Files’ EP is perfect for fans of Blasterjaxx, all tracks carry that unique sound and they work extremely well.
