Major Lazer and Showtek have finally unleashed their highly-anticipated collaboration: ‘Believer’. The track already caused a myriad of breath-taking moments at festivals such as Parookaville, Lollapalooza, Burning Man and Rock Am Ring, now seeing its official release on Showtek’s SKINK and Diplo’s Mad Decent label.
Showtek, one half of this titanic collaboration, consists of Dutch brothers Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen. The duo counts as one of the leading acts when it comes to producing club-smashing dance music and they keep spawning killer tunes time and time again. Since starting their endeavours, Showtek have proven their worth twenty times over with worldwide hit singles ‘Cannonball’, ‘Booyah’ and ‘Bad’, securing a spot in the top 5 of the UK Singles Charts.
Now, the Dutchmen drop ‘Believer’, their third release in a short amount of time. The single comes hot on the heels of recent singles ‘Mellow’ and ‘Swipe’; both singles have been accumulating loads of momentum around the world. Their recent creations and collaboration show that they keep exploring uncharted territory in the pop/dance music scene to venture past the boundaries of Electronic Dance Music.
Major Lazer is the collaborative project led by Grammy award-winning DJ and producer Diplo. Made up of Diplo, Walshy Fire and Jillionaire, Major Lazer sees ‘Cold Water’, their latest hit collaboration with Justin Bieber and MØ, rack up massive airplay around the globe, while thriving in the top 3 most streamed tracks worldwide.
Previously, Major Lazer released ‘Peace Is The Mission’ as their third studio album in the summer of 2015 and subsequently got the world going crazy over lead single ‘Lean On’ (feat. MØ & DJ Snake). The song now counts as the most streamed song on Spotify (over 862 million streams) and hit the world’s most esteemed official charts (e.g. Billboard Top 100, UK Singles Charts), all the while racking up over 1.6 billion views for the song’s official music video on YouTube.
You can see Showtek at Boo! San Francisco 2016 on October 29. The Janssen brother will be closing the second night of the festival with their set scheduled from 12am to 1am.
