With a shared passion for house music, Marlon Flohr and Ralph van Hilst joined forces in 2007 and have been gracing dance floors around the world with their sound ever since. Their big break came in 2011 when Tiesto picked up their heavy hitter 'Mush Mush' and released it on his record label, Musical Freedom. A steady stream of releases has followed, and Bassjackers have been supported by top artists including Fedde Le Grand, Swedish House Mafia, Afrojack, Calvin Harris, David Guetta and more.
Scientist, DJ, Producer, Musician - Grandmaster Flash is a true legend.
Considered to be one of the founding fathers of Hip Hop, Flash is a huge part of what DJ'ing has become today. He was the first DJ to physically lay his hands on a record and manipulate it in a backward and forward motion, in turn inventing what is now known as turntablism.
Flash began in the South Bronx during the 70s rocking block parties on the regular, which essentially would be the start of a global phenomenon. Soon after, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five was formed. Their most significant hit was the electro rap song "The Message" which is still played regularly today.
Whether he is inventing new ways to cut up a jam, rocking sold out stadiums or producing his next hit, Flash is always pushing the boundaries with a set of turntables.
Today you can find Flash touring the world while he gears up for his next big release. Please join us in welcoming him to our Savior of Sound Family!
SOL REPUBLIC surf team photographer Ryan Miller gives us an inside look into the last swell of the year on Hawaii's North Shore.
"Surfers look forward to events throughout the year for different reasons, but everyone looks forward to winter in Hawaii. The end of the year means big waves coupled with high energy contests, forcing everyone to step up and commit to some waves of consequence. Newest team rider Mitch Coleborn came just one spot short of qualifying for the 2014 WCT, but I’m sure we'll be seeing him at most of the WCT events this year. Julian Wilson stepped up when his number was called at Pipe and got a few epic waves. Keanu Asing was everywhere this year on the North Shore. Oliver Kurtz flew out for the last Pipe swell. He made the most of everything he could get ahold of and scored a few amazing Pipe waves in the process."
