Showtek – ‘Swipe‘ – Troll – In a world where online presence seems to be the only thing that matters, Showtek rise to take a stand. The renowned DJ and producer duo came up with a new track called ‘Swipe’ that serves as a wake-up call, simultaneously trolling today’s social media generation.
‘Swipe’ is a message to the social media world, where everything is about looks, appearances and selfies. The pressure that social media is generating for the (next) generation(s) is very frightening. ‘Swipe’ is our funny way of making people aware of this.
Next to being a pretty accurate way to describe the reign of social media in today’s world, ‘Swipe’ is also a piece of smashing EDM, fleshed out with highly recognizable and satirical lyrics involving Instagram models, Tinder, and more. Since its release on August 26th, the track has racked up almost 200,000 streams on Spotify alone and is currently holding the fifth spot in the Electro House charts on Beatport after peaking at #2 earlier this month.
Showtek consists of Dutch brothers Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen. Formerly enweaved with the Hardstyle scene as one of its bigger acts, Showtek branched out to club-smashing EDM a few years back and has been making waves ever since. With worldwide hit singles ‘Cannonball’ and ‘Booyah’ and a Top 5 spot in the UK Singles Charts for the latter under their belt, Showtek’s career is unmistakably flourishing.
