Blasterjaxx – ‘Savage‘ – After the stupendous XX Files collection blew our minds earlier this year with its potent mix of vocal anthems and dance floor bangers, Blasterjaxx has now returned with a second volume to delight their fans with: XX Files – Festival Edition. The first taste of this upcoming collection of big room tracks comes in the form of this new record, ‘Savage.’
With tense synth plucks layered with low end grunts, ‘Savage‘ blossoms into a cascade of reverbed melodies as a percussive build sends the track into overdrive. A seductive French female spoken vocal signals the drop, wherein a frenzied, distorted hook plays out over tough percussive hits and rasping bass tones.
This is the sound of Blasterjaxx doing what they do best. The track was given a serious road test on Kingsday in Holland, where Thom played three gigs in one day with a little help from their very stylish helicopter.
