SHOWTEK ENLIST SONOFSTEVE FOR FLOOR-FILLER ANTHEM ‘ONE LIFE’ VIA SKINK RECORDS
Following a huge summer of shows that saw appearances at Dreamfields and Veld Music Festival, globally recognized duo Showtek now team up with Swedish rising star sonofsteve for One Life via Showtek’s SKINK Records.
Dutch duo Showtek have conquered the international dance music industry with high-octane anthems that have seen releases on major labels like Spinnin’, Armada, Ultra, Parlophone, and Musical Freedom. Launching their career as hardstyle DJs with huge success, Showtek earned acclaim for releasing the world’s biggest no.1 hardstyle anthem to date, FTS.
Since then, brothers Wouter Janssen and Sjoerd Janssen have developed a heavyweight EDM sound, dropping immense collaborations with the likes of Tiësto, Major Lazer, Steve Aoki, Moby, Timmy Trumpet, Wyclef Jean, and more. Notably, the DJs and producers have channelled passion and drive into hits like Bad with David Guetta, which gathered over 505M Spotify streams, BBC Radio 1 support, and DJ support from Hardwell, Borgore and more.
Meanwhile, Swedish native sonofsteve has contributed his stellar songwriting and vocal abilities to a wide range of creative universes including writing for the likes of The Black Eyed Peas, Andrew McMahon and Haley Reinhart in addition to penning the soundtrack for Antonio Banderas’ film Justin and the Knights of Valour. Choosing his artist name after his father achieved cancer free status in 2016, sonofsteve boasts a wide range of Platinum and Gold wins and seven Billboard no. 1’s in Japan.
In particular, the singer and songwriter is known for tracks like Closer with Junge Junge, which boasts over 2M Spotify streams, and his first collaboration with Showtek Show Some Love, which amassed over 2M Spotify streams on its high-voltage festival edit.
Now uniting for their second collaboration, Showtek and sonofsteve present a religiously euphoric sound in One Life.
