If we told you that Bassjackers can successfully remix a Linkin Park song, would you believe us? The thought’s probably never crossed your mind, considering that Linkin Park’s harsh tunes all but lend themselves to dancing, but it’s true – the duo can make “Numb” into a frenetic house track.
Bassjackers bring Linkin Park remixes and other unexpected tunes to Boston in the electric chambers of Royale this Friday, July 17. Thanks to the Dutch duo, music by artists like Ne-Yo and Rihanna becomes re-imagined through insanely good house music – 1,000,000-likes-on-Facebook-good house music.
We don’t need to tell you the usual tale of two talented friends joining forces to form a DJing duo – that bio is nearly an archetype at this point – but what you might not know is that Marlon Flohr and Ralph van Hilst have collaborated with Afrojack and Showtek, and the guys are currently in the running to be on DJ Magazine‘s list of the Top 100 DJs. Not too shabby.
Is Bassjackers good enough to make the list? Stop by Royale this Friday to hear the duo play beloved house music and unexpected mashups alike, and see if the guys have got the right beats to earn your vote.
