Blasterjaxx is a Dutch DJ and record producer duo composed of Thom Jongkind (born 1990) and Idir Makhlaf (born 1992). The duo originated in The Hague and has been active since 2010. They mainly produce big room house and electro house music.

History

In 2010, Thom Jongkind, known professionally as Scalix, formed a duo called Blasterjaxx with producer Leon Vielvoije, who left soon after joining. Jongkind then continued under the Blasterjaxx name and started collaborating with Idir Makhlaf, known professionally as Macosta. Makhlaf eventually officially joined Jongkind under the name Blasterjaxx.[3]

In 2012, the Reborn EP was released as a collaboration with D-Rashid, and contained two tracks, "Reborn" and "Where We Go." Dutch EDM producer and DJ, Laidback Luke, signed the tracks to his own label Mixmash Records. In early 2013, the group produced Loud & Proud together with Billy The Kit, with DJ Tiësto subsequently signing the track to his personal record label, Musical Freedom. Blasterjaxx remixed the Tiësto hits "Adagio for Strings" and "Love Comes Again" as well as collaborating with him on a remix of "United," the official anthem of Ultra Music Festival. Blasterjaxx has additional collaboration credits with EDM acts as Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, David Guetta, Hardwell, Afrojack, Nicky Romero, Quintino, Ibranovski and others.

Blasterjaxx's single "Faith" was a big charting hit in the Netherlands in 2013 and in Sweden in 2014. They subsequently released a collaboration with Hardwell, who edited the track "Fifteen." Blasterjaxx first entered DJ Mag's Top 100 DJs poll at #71 in 2013. 2014 saw the duo reach #13, and #19 in 2015. In June 2015 Blasterjaxx partnered with Electronic Music lifestyle brand Electric Family[4] to produce a collaboration bracelet with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the 20x20x20 Foundation.[5][6]

In September 2015, Makhlaf announced he was to cease touring, but continue to produce music with Jongkind, citing panic attacks.[7]
