The mighty Blasterjaxx return to Ministry of Sound for a headline set at Spinnin' Sessions alongside a heavyweight lineup including Wasback, Jack Wins, Tita Lau and Very Special Guest, Tujamo.
Before they touch down in London, we called them up to talk touring, clubs and festivals.
Where are you both in the world right now?
We're both in The Netherlands, producing lots of music and expanding our business.
What was the last club you played at, and which country was it in?
The last show played by Blasterjaxx was on the 27th of November in Stuttgart, Germany.
What did you miss most about club shows during the pandemic?
Having contact with the crowd. Seeing people smile and enjoy the music, as well as the opportunities for us to road-test new music.
How did you both meet, and how did you come up with the name Blasterjaxx?
We met due to a mutual friend. Blasterjaxx was the result of some brainstorming sessions in the train. We wanted to have something powerful that resonated with our music.
You've both been supporting DJs on your Maxximize radio show for years, but are there any tracks at the moment from up and coming talent you've been playing in your sets recently
This answer would be easier to give when it was pre or post covid, haha. Lately, I really dig Mortens productions, and also, Mark Roma is a name to keep an eye out for.
What's your favorite thing or thing to do in London when you're here?
To be honest, I've been to London plenty of times but never really saw any tourist spots, soI might do that this time.
When was the first time you played at the Ministry of Sound, and what did it feel like to play London's most iconic club?
The last time must have been somewhere around 2019, and like always I absolutely love the venue and the crowd!! Super excited to be back there in February.
When you've performed at Ministry of Sound in the past were there any tracks back then that you still play now, if so... What tracks are they?
Absolutely, our classic tracks can't be missed during this night! For instance, our track Mystica will always stay around!
You've played different venues and spaces all around the world but what do you prefer playing at, Festivals or Clubs and why?
I like to play both. Festivals give different energy than clubs, but both are unique on their own. Playing both settings makes my work diverse.
Finally... What can you promise fans ahead of your set on Friday 25th February, will you be playing any unreleased music?
Oh hell yes!! There will be plenty of unreleased tunes like always! Some golden oldies here and there, and new music for us to test, which might be the premiere of some songs…
