2016 was a year of peaks and troughs for many reasons, but one of the true shining lights punching its way through the gloomy backdrop was the strength of the electronic music scene and no single artist or group typified this more than the Dutch masters of the dance, Showtek. Whilst many were watching the clock in eager anticipation of a new dawn in 2017, Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen were raiding their record boxes with the aim of highlighting the many aurally pleasing gifts dropped by their peers over the year and packaging them into one sensational 2-hour megamix.
Regular listeners to the Skink Radio podcast hosted by Showtek will be all too familiar with the pair’s ability to mix and blend only the finest music available, and this 2016 roundup does not fail to deliver. We’re talking 70 tracks from some of the biggest household names including Axwell, Fedde Le Grand, Major Lazer, Don Diablo, Knife Party, Galantis, Skrillex and Deorro as well as Showtek originals and remixes for Rihanna, Hardwell, DJ Khaled and more.
Make no mistake about it, this isn’t a generic mix of #1s, it’s a blissful journey through the varying niches of the EDM genre that is relentless in nature and sonically intricate in its application – as you would expect any Showtek set to be.
