Blasterjaxx is a Dutch music Producer and DJ duo made up of Thom Jongkind and Idir Makhlaf.
In 2010, Thom Jongkind, then operating as Scalix decided to set up a DJ duo with another producer at the time. The project was called Blasterjaxx. When it folded, Thom continued with the Blasterjaxx label himself. Jongkind had a few collaborations with Idir Makhlaf, then operating under the name Macosta. Makhlaf eventually joined Blasterjaxx and in 2012, the Reborn EP was released with D-Rashid containing two tracks: "Reborn" and "Where We Go" with Laidback Luke signing the tracks at his own label Mixmash Records. Early 2013, they produced Loud & Proud together with Billy The Kit, with Tiësto signing the track at his own record label Musical Freedom. Blasterjaxx remixed Tiësto's hits "Adagio for Strings" and "Love Comes Again" and a collaboration on the remix of "United", the official anthem of Ultra Music Festival. Blasterjaxx also collaborated with Laidback Luke, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, David Guetta, Hardwell, Afrojack, Tiësto, Nicky Romero, Quintino, Ibranovski and many more.
Blasterjaxx single "Faith" was a big charting hit in Netherlands in 2013 and in Sweden in 2014. The follow-up single is "Fifteen" in collaboration with Hardwell. DJ Mag listed Blasterjaxx in its Top 100 best deejays at number 71.
