Released 10 Years Ago: Bassjackers – Crackin (Martin Garrix Edit)

A decade ago, the Dutch House duo Bassjackers‘ electrifying 2013 track ‘Crackin’ received an explosive rework from Martin Garrix, the then-rising star of EDM. While the original essence of ‘Crackin’ was retained, Martin Garrix’s edit brought a new level of intensity to the track. It featured an ominous, brooding electro hook complete with a massive kick and snarling synths, elevating the drops to even more frenzied heights. This version swiftly garnered support from an extensive list of top DJs, including Hardwell, Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, Afrojack, W&W, and Showtek, who were all captivated by Martin Garrix’s dynamic reinterpretation. Initially released as a free giveaway on Facebook by Bassjackers in June 2013, the track received a renewed surge in popularity thanks to Martin Garrix’s impactful edit.

Bassjackers, comprising DJ Marlon Flohr and producer Ralph van Hilst, have a unique synergy as a duo. Their contrasting personalities, with Marlon‘s energetic stage presence and Ralph‘s cool, collected approach to production, blend seamlessly to create a dynamic and effective collaboration. Together, they strike a perfect balance between electrifying live performances and innovative studio creations.

Martin Garrix‘s ascent in both pop and electronic music spheres is a testament to his extraordinary talent and dedication. Having headlined major global festivals, founded his label STMPD RCRDS, and achieved the #1 spot in DJ Mag‘s Top 100 DJs list three times consecutively, Martin Garrix continues to push boundaries and inspire others. His commitment to making music that he loves, coupled with his maturity and drive, marks him as an influential figure in the industry, constantly evolving and setting new standards.
