Showtek & Justin Prime feat. Matthew Koma :: released May 02 2014
Following the huge success of ‘Cannonball’ Showtek and Justin Prime have now revealed details of their new single, ‘Cannonball (Earthquake)’. The collaborative production, which features the vocals of Matthew Koma, is set for release on Spinnin’ / Polydor on 16th March 2014. It received its world premiere on world-renowned dance music tastemaker Pete Tong’s BBC Radio 1 show on Friday 6th December, introducing the single to the world in explosive fashion.
Released in March of this year, the instrumental version of the track quickly proved itself to be an inescapable club anthem with its high-octane rush of euphoric chord progressions, ice cool synths and pounding bass. Going straight into the Beatport Top 10, as well as No.5 in their native Holland’s chart, it quickly appeared as one of the most played tracks of Miami Winter Music Conference and came out as an undisputed fan favourite at Ultra Music Festival, remaining in heavy rotation across clubs and festivals throughout the summer.
Now, Showtek and Justin Prime are set to release a fresh incarnation of the instrumental featuring Matthew Koma, who has previously collaborated on tracks such as Hardwell ‘Dare You’, Alesso ‘Years’ and ZEDD ‘Spectrum’. On ‘Cannonball (Earthquake)’ the instrumental retains all the immediacy and energy that make it such a standout club track, while Koma’s soaring vocals perfectly intertwine with the track’s synth melodies to add another utterly infectious layer to the standout production. With the addition of Koma’s songwriting finesse, ‘Cannonball (Earthquake)’ is elevated to new realms.
