Faith going platinum in Sweden
Almost a year ago (the 17th of July 2013) Blasterjaxx came with their first commercial release, 'Faith'. Now, a year and much more tracks later, this track is still one of the favorites all over the world including a favorite from Blasterjaxx themselves. Wherever the Blasterjaxx boys play 'Faith' people know the lyrics from letter to letter. Not much after the release of 'Faith', it already floated into the charts in Holland with as a peak being the Dancesmash on the most popular pop radio channel in The Netherlands, Radio 538. After this succes, the road to the top continued. Not even a month after reaching their 'Dancesmash' position the boys from Blasterjaxx got the news that Faith reached the number one position in the official South-African charts. Currently 'Faith' is still going strong worldwide which can be traced back to the latest news, 'Faith' going Platinum in Sweden. With more than 7.2 Million streams going Double-platinum might be in reach soon. Not even 2 weeks After this enormous news 'Faith' also went Gold in Denmark.

bio- & discography
We enjoy every second.
This is who we are
Thom Jongkind (24) and Idir Makhlaf (22), better known as producer/deejay duo Blasterjaxx in the music industry, are anything but the same. While one is often prominent and empowering, the other prefers staying quietly in the background - a fairly high contrast in character. However, there is one significant reason for the phenomenal connection between these two personalities: their passion and love of music.
In 2012, Blasterjaxx was able to show their true nature and proved to be everything but an ephemera. Together with D-Rashid they produced the Reborn EP with two tracks: Reborn and Where We Go. An EP-name with a story behind it, for this EP is in fact symbolic for Blasterjaxx’ renewed sound, which they want to introduce and conquer the worldwide audience with. A rebirth that eventually turned out to be a bombshell, because none other than Laidback Luke was eager to sign the tracks at his own label: Mixmash Records.
Blasterjaxx experienced one of the highlights in their relatively young career in early 2013, as they produced their newest production Loud & Proud together with Billy The Kit. None other than Tiësto approached the guys personally to sign the track at his own record label
Many successes and milestones followed which resulted in the fact that Blasterjaxx are now seen as one of the most promising EDM artists in the world. Something Thom & Idir are very down-to-earth with, but the facts don’t lie. For example Tiësto asked them in person to remix his worldwide hitsingels 'Adagio For Strings' & 'Love Comes Again'.
Also the Blasterjaxx single 'Faith' has been doing really good. The single officially made it to the status of 'Dance Smash' in Holland. The “Dance Smash” is a weekly track nomination choosen by Hollands biggest radiostation '538' which they think has huge potential to become a worldwide hit. After a couple of weeks Faith reached the #1 spot in the South African charts.
DJ MAG TOP 100 ENTRANCE 2013
Although it already was a good Blasterjaxx year full of great news and highlights, things were getting better on the 19th of October 2013: Blasterjaxx entered the DJ Mag Top 100 best deejays in the world on #71! With this they are ranked in the most exclusive DJ list in the world with legends like als Avicii, Tiësto, Hardwell, David Guetta, Afrojack, Skrillex, Calvin Harris, Daft Punk, Laidback Luke, Kaskade, Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello and a few more legendary names.
All rumors about Blasterjaxx just being ephemera in 2013 immediately got rejected as soon as 2014 started. In the begining of 2014 they immediately scored their second #1 Beatport hit within 6 months, this time with their solo release 'Mystica'. Not even a month later they hit the spot again with their track 'Titan' which reached the top 3 within days. Then, completely unexpected, another number one hit, together with Armin van Buren.
