Showtek Thanks Fans with Giveaway of New Track 'Mosh Pit'
Delivering a special gift to thank fans, Dutch duo Showtek have announced a unique giveaway track titled "Mosh Pit." The release is aimed at showing their appreciation for the support on their David Guetta collaboration "Bad," which has amassed over 1 billion combined streams and downloads since its release. "Mosh Pit" will also feature on the second installment of their AMEN EP which is set to drop on August 23.
Hot on the heels of their 2-track EP earlier this month, which featured brand-new productions "Amen" and "Don't Shoot," new release "Mosh Pit" features a heavy reggae vibe, with steel drum beats building the track, before an explosive drop. A production laced with Showtek's signature big-room sound, "Mosh Pit" looks set to dominate festival main stages with its distinctively Caribbean sound.
The release of "Mosh Pit" marks what has been a hectic month for the pair, who have been travelling around Europe for an extensive run of festivals. Following their European stint, they recently announced their North American Tour, which will kick off at the end of August, as they encompass 20+ dates including stops in Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, Boston, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta and more.
Showtek, made up of the Janssen brothers, Sjoerd and Wouter, are founders of their own label "Skink." In 2012 they exploded onto the global dance scene following success with crossover hits such as "Sun Goes Down" (39 million Spotify plays) and "Booyah" (32 million Spotify plays). The latter track encompassing Showtek's true sound, peaking at #5 in the UK Singles chart and marking their first worldwide major hit. Having worked with some of the biggest acts in world dance music, including fellow Dutch producers Tiësto and Hardwell, the duo also collaborated with Major Lazer in 2016 for "Believer," which has over 80 million total combined streams. Over the past two years Showtek has become more than an act. It's a movement brought together by the producer duo and their fans. United by a love for music, excitement, artistic freedom and adventure.
