Acclaimed Dutch brothers Showtek have dropped their new single ‘Island Boy’, out now via Skink Records.
The second single is taken from Showtek‘s hotly anticipated ‘EDM Sucks/Island Boy‘ EP. ‘Island Boy‘ is an exotic collaboration with Russian duo Dropgun that deploys steel drums, anthemic horns and the Patois vocals of dancehall artists Elephant Man and GC (Gate Citizens). It follows on from the release of bass-heavy ‘EDM Sucks‘, a high-octane collaboration with UK hardcore legend Gammer.
One of the biggest acts in dance music, Showtek have dominated the international music industry with their melody-powered hooks, beat-heavy songs, memorable anthems and high-energy performances. Cementing their reputation as one of dance music’s most prominent double acts, they boast an impressive collection of accolades, including Best European DJ and Producer, Best Track, Best Artist Album, Beatport Music Award for Best Selling Track, and six Beatport #1s.
Garnering global support on hit releases ‘Your Love’, ‘Sun Goes Down’ and ‘Believer‘, which racked up over 200 million streams on Spotify collectively, Showtek have further established themselves as one of dance music’s most successful production duos, with their collaboration list including names like Moby, Major Lazer, Tiesto and Hardwell.
Showcasing the duo’s musical diversity, ‘Island Boy‘ pairs Showtek‘s trademark EDM sound with some irresistibly sunkissed dancehall.
