A couple of years ago, Big Room house has been one of the most played and also most loved genres amongst Electronic Dance Music fans. DJs such as W&W, Hardwell and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike were dominating the massive mainstages of festivals around the world and their tracks like ‘Spaceman’ and ‘Mammoth’ were part of every good DJ set back then. Even though Big Room still has many followers and DJs who play it, the majority of the DJs moved away from it to play more sophisticated music, even on mainstages. However, one duo that has always remained loyal to Big Room is Blasterjaxx. And one of their classics turned 5 years old today: ‘Snake’.
The two Dutchmen that are known for some of the most-well known EDM tunes out there have been around for almost 10 years now. Their repertoire includes tracks such as ‘Parnassia’, ‘Narco’ together with Timmy Trumpet or their latest track, with the suiting name ‘Big Room Never Dies’ together with legendary Hardwell.
In ‘Snake’ once can hear the really early days of what shaped the signature Big Room sounds Blasterjaxx is known for. The sound is very hypnotizing, almost like you play the flute with a real snake, which probably was the aim, given the name of the track. It even got released on Dim Mak, because back in 2013, Blasterjaxx’ own label Maxximize did not exist yet.
Nowadays, Blasterjaxx is one of the most established artists in the EDM industry, playing on festivals such as Tomorrowland in Belgium or Ultra Music Festival in the USA. Check out ‘Snake’ from their early days now!
