Out Now: Showtek – Crunk / Slow Down
‘Crunk’ and ‘Slow Down’ are masterworks in varied and skilled production. ‘Crunk’ is an all-out high-octane jump house anthem and ‘Slow Down’ a heavy progressive track with a trance inspired melody. Both are so fully charged with filthy bass, piercing synths and huge vocals that they will have you cranking up the speed dial until you blow your speakers!
Never a pair to be tied down into any one field, these two mammoth records marks their musical transition and continued journey through the world of electronic dance music. They cite and utilise influences from rock and hip-hop to house and euphoria. This all combines in the Showtek way to create their unique sound!
‘Slow Down’ is not a phrase commonly used in Showtek’s dictionary. On only the eve of 2013, ‘Hey!’ was unleashed to the world and was met with the ravest reviews from fans and specialists all over the world. In a heartbeat, they then began one of the greatest podcasts in the electronic domain, propelling the Dutch brothers straight to the US – stunning fans from the East to the West. Whilst wowing overseas however, the two have held a special place for home fans that have shown continued support for their ground breaking Justin Prime collaboration. Keeping a firm position at No.5 in the Dutch Top 40, Showtek are rapidly becoming one of the greatest musical exports from the Netherlands and showing the rest of the world exactly why!
