With over a billion streams, a top 5 UK single, and a fistful of collaborations with dance music luminaries Major Lazer, David Guetta, Moby, Steve Aoki, and Tiësto under their belts, superstar DJ/producer duo Showtek greets the new decade with ‘The Weekend’, a technicolor celebratory romp that transports listeners into a carefree world beyond the problems of the day.
Getting expert assistance from Canadian producer/songwriter Eva Shaw and rapper Spree Wilson (who was discovered and mentored by Q-Tip and has co-written songs with Afrojack and for Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. label), Showtek proves once again that they are ready, as always, to bring a joyous and rambunctious sound for every occasion.
“‘The Weekend’ has a child-like happy feel, it speaks to the part of yourself you never want to get rid off, and releasing a song like this keeps that part alive. If we would’ve taken life too seriously we would not have made this track. We noticed last year that the industry started becoming a bit saturated and too focused on numbers only. For us, it’s important to have fun doing what we do and being open to trying out new things. That’s the kid part in everyone, you don’t want to overthink every little step but just do, and try out things. We had a lot of fun writing and producing this and that’s why we worked with Eva and Spree to create a song containing a variety of styles. They are both active in different genres and both added something special. We wanted to create a hybrid of all the musical styles that have influenced us since we were young. More to come!” – Showtek
