Dutch DJ and producer duo Bassjackers and Italian trio Sunstars join forces building their massive new tune ‘Block’. A gloomy pounding 90’s infused beat and vocal opens up the track, layered with an intense build up preparing for the explosive drop. Forceful beats and sharp synth stabs create a bursting power, alternated with light sweet piano chords twirling around a sturdy beat. ‘Block’ is blazing and upbeat, making sure every crowd will go crazy! Out now on Spinnin’ Records.
“For us Sunstars really stand out with their high quality producing work & fresh sound! That’s what got us excited to work with them and we both got the chance to twist our sounds a bit more than we are used to. We love the result, it has got that funky, bouncy vibe, but in the meantime it delivers that energy we love with the right amount of aggressiveness. The perfect blend between club & festival if you ask us. Plus we experienced it goes well into your workout playlist as well! ;)”– Bassjackers
”We are so stoked for ‘Block’ with Bassjackers. We’ve followed them since their release ‘Mush Mush’ in 2011 on Tiesto’s Musical Freedom and having the chance to collaborate with the guys is a dream coming true!”– Sunstars
DJ, Marlon Flohr, and producer, Ralph van Hilst, who together form Bassjackers, are perfectly in sync as a duo. Their opposing personalities – Marlon being the wild one rocking each and every stage they play and Ralph the more cool and collective preferring to shine behind the scene on the producer seat, are a perfect combination for this unique one dj-one producer collaboration. The duo exploded onto the scene and in 2011 their dancefloor bomb ‘Mush Mush’ was picked up by Tiësto and released on his imprint Musical Freedom. This led to a numerous chart-topping bangers and hit collaborations with the likes of Martin Garrix, Afrojack, KSHMR, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Dyro, R3hab and Showtek, to name a few, as well as remixes for A-list artists including Rihanna, Enrique Iglesias, Moby, and Ne-Yo. At the top of their game, Bassjackers continue to tear up stages worldwide and wow crowds along the way.
Sunstars, the joint effort of 3 friends brought together by their love of music. Luigi, Alberto and Andrea started this journey just a few short years ago in Italy and have already achieved so much in so little time. With releases on Spinnin’ Records, Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings, Nicky Romero’s Protocol, and Tiesto’s Musical Freedom, the trio continue to push new boundaries with their fresh sound. Their release ‘DYSYLM’ with Breathe Carolina already racked up 4 Million streams and was most heard track on 1001 Tracklists for 5 weeks in a row. Now with their collaborations with Bassjackers and Lucas & Steve just being released they show no sign of slowing down any time soon.
