Bassjackers once again prove themselves by hooking up again with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike as well as Julian Banks, but also with in welcoming Hip-Hop legend Snoop Dogg on vocal duties for ‘Bounce’. Leading to a pounding anthem that blurs the lines between genres, fitting between rap, half-time and Hardstyle, all whilst expertly straddling the line to create a track that transcends labels.
Rhythmic claps with attitude integrate into dense, weighty bass and hyperactive beats, all offset by Snoop’s instantly-recognisable drawl, pack a delectable and eccentric punch. All styles are on show and fans are left guessing, as the halftime beats switch up for the last drop, cranking up the intensity with a pounding hardstyle section before reverting back to the original, swung rhythm. A merger of worlds and sounds.
The Belgian brothers have taken to cherry-picking talents from a wide spectrum of artists recently, highlighted by their recent offerings in ‘All I need’, alongside trap pioneer Gucci Mane, and the juggernaut anthem of the summer ‘When I Grow Up’ alongside hip-hop galáctico Wiz Khalifa. Continuing in the same vein with ‘Bounce’, once again displaying their versatility and a plethora of influences that have contributed to a sound palette as diverse as it is impressive.

Having rose to prominence out of Long Beach, California, Snopp Dogg today is figurehead beyond just the hip hop world. A central artist in the global music scene he has sold over 35 million albums worldwide and starred in countless movie and TV roles.
