Major Lazer & Showtek – Believer
Major Lazer & Showtek are two of the biggest groups in dance music. Major Lazer themselves have been on an absolute rampage recently. After releasing some of the biggest tunes over the past few years, the groups are back with this new collaboration entitled “Believer” and they have worked hard to mix their own styles together to deliver a diverse collaboration.
“Believer” lives up to all expectations and opens with a nice chord progression with a nice catchy vocal line that soon breaks down. It’s clear that the next section was mainly inspired by Showtek’s sound as a massive synth line soon dominates the build. The drop soon comes and it’s a more trap-inspired sound with elements from the lead synth also appearing here. As the second breakdown and indeed second drop soon come it’s quite clear to see which sections of the track were produced by each group as the second drop is a harder and more hardstyle inspired sound which is of course Showtek’s signature. While this has less commercial appeal than Major Lazer’s other work, we can still see this one being a hit and of course it’s a catchy, well-produced track in general.
