KSHMR Teams Up With Hard Lights and Charlott Boss to release new song ‘Over & Out’



KSHMR returns with his first single of 2020 ‘Over and Out’ - a thunderous hardstyle tune featuring Malysian DJ Hard Lights and the vocals of Charlott Boss. Out Friday, February 14th via his label Dharma Worldwide, the single playfully touches on the futuristic elements of outer space and explores hard-hitting basslines and wildly uptempo beats. ‘Over and Out’ will be lighting up dancefloors worldwide just in time for festival season.

Following KSHMR’s recent collaboration with Marnik, Anjulie and Jeffrey Jey on single ‘Alone’, ‘Over And Out’’ takes the shape of a sci-fi themed track with big drops and erie vocals.

KSHMR talking on the collaboration said: "First hearing the vocal from Charlotte Boss transported me to a different world, and right away I had a vision for the production -- to take the listener on a journey through space. I love sci-fi and used all the sounds I could find to get it there. I was helped tremendously by the original demo from Charlotte Boss and Hard Lights and couldn’t be happier with the result."

Collaborating with The Far East Movement and Dev, KSHMR’s biggest commercial success came in 2010 as part of production duo The Cataracs, with the smash hit ‘Like A G6’ spending three weeks at #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100. As a solo artist, he is best known for ‘Secrets’, the huge 2015 collaboration with Tiesto that has racked up over 40 million Spotify streams to date. He has since produced a wealth of hit tracks, such as ‘Megalodon’, ‘Burn’, ‘Karate’ and ‘Wildcard’.

Headlining renowned festivals such as Tomorrowland, EDC Las Vegas and Coachella, KSHMR’s last tour featured snow machines, fire bowls and 4D special effects, proving himself as one of electronic music’s most immersive live performers. The schedule for 2020 looks similarly stacked, with shows in Brazil, Mexico, India, Ultra Miami and the UAE over the next few months.

KSHMR X Hard Lights ft Charlott Boss ‘Over and Out’ is out on all streaming platforms Friday, February 14th via Dharma Worldwide.

Music duo Showtek releases new song ‘Island Boy’ ft Dropgun and Elephant Man



Acclaimed Dutch brothers Showtek have dropped their new single ‘Island Boy’, out on 8th November 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. They also linked up with David Guetta in 2014 on hit single ‘BAD’, which went 10x Platinum, amassed over 800 million views on YouTube and generated 375 million Spotify streams.

Best known for ‘Pyramids’, Dropgun’s 2014 collaboration with DVBBS that has generated 17 million hits on YouTube alone, has carved a reputation as one of the most talented production duos in EDM. Earlier this year they remixed trance master Armin Van Buuren and recently performed at a Dharma Worldwide showcase at ADE.

A legend of the dancehall world, Elephant Man has previously collaborated with some of the biggest names in music, including Rihanna, Fatman Scoop and Busta Rhymes. ‘Island Boy’ marks his first foray into EDM - a scene crossover that has delivered scintillating results.

GC (Gate Citizens) is a Jamaica-born, New York-based songwriter and producer whose sound has found a home on Skink over the past few years. He previously featured on Showtek’s raucous 2017 hit ‘Moshpit’ and earlier this year linked up with fellow Skink artists Linka & Modello on euphoric single ‘Butt’.

Showcasing the duo’s musical diversity, ‘Island Boy’ pairs Showtek’s trademark EDM sound with some irresistibly sunkissed dancehall.
