REVIEW: Bassjackers - The Riddle out on Smash The House

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike's Smash The House imprint not only continues to release the hottest tracks to be found in record boxes & on the hardrives of those in electronic music that matter, but possesses a fanbase that continues to mutate, divulging in a range of diverse genres spanning House, Big-Room, Hardstyle & Electronic-Tinged Pop.

For the latest STH big-hitter, Dutch duo Bassjackers return to the previous home of their releases including Beatport #1 'Sound Barrier' and more recently, big-room chart climber 'Last Fight', their freshest production on the imprint - 'The Riddle' - is set to take on the mainstages with a vengeance and bite to match this Spring. Super-charged with rhythmic snaps and accumulating synths that build above a reverberating line of bass, the track's unique hook is that of a pied-piper-style whistle that teases the melody, before gargantuan synths take over, ready to lead listeners into one insane drop.

As funky and boisterous as what we've come to know Bassjackers music as, make no mistake that the unmistakable creativity of 'The Riddle' helps set it apart from their previous work with finesse and attitude, with Smash The House proving the perfect home.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Bassjackers never fail to impress and deliver mainstage tracks that any festival goer will feel obliged to jump really high.  The ultimate party anthem has the word The Riddle written all over it. Pumping heavy basslines, bouncy drums, trap meets bass house drop and superb breakdown with whistling or flute like melody that gives instantly goosebumps followed by huge synths that explode out of any proportion and replay that dreamy but very epic hands in the air anthemic melody. You know already the melody but Bassjackers take on it is truly out of this world turbo charged experience. #PureBassPower Love IT [/content]
