Hardwell & Showtek’s “How We Do” celebrates 4 years

Hardwell and Showtek created one of the most definitive Big-Room anthems four years ago. Comfortably one of the most prominent tracks from the sub-genre for the first half of this decade, “How We Do” put audiences into a frenzy worldwide.

The track itself has amassed a mighty 10 million views across online platforms, reflecting its status in EDM history. One of the first major Big-Room collaborations, both artists went on to contribute further to the then-exploding trend. And their status continues even today.

Making is way to No.1 DJ in the world on DJ Mag’s Top 100 Poll, Hardwell’s activity in 2012 was a primary reason for his jump of 18 places later that year to N0.6. Going on to continue the momentum gained the year before to take the thrown at the top, the flying Dutchman was able to approach radio, clubs and festival’s prepared. Carrying a deep and varied portfolio, it was tracks like “How We Do” that acted as consistent performers for his DJ activities.

Now renowned for their Big-Room capabilities, Showtek has a discography riddled with big hits. Going on to work with David Guetta, Tiesto and even Chris Brown, the Dutch duo are also responsible for other major tracks. With the likes of “Booyah”, “Bad”, “Cannonball” and “We Like To Party” under their belts, Showtek’s move from Techno and Hardstyle to the more mainstream sub-genre’s, has brought a flurry of success.

Monstrous in every layer in its compistion, “How We Do” starts off as it means to end. Building to a mighty drop, the loud melody sits atop of a pulsating bass. Instinctively designed for the festival scene, it was one of the most popular tracks at the like of EDC and Tomorrowland back in 2012.
