“Show us what you got/when the motherf*king beat drops.” If you’ve been in a club or turned on BPM Satellite radio anytime in the past year, you’ve no doubt heard this line from the aggressive electro track “Cannonball” by the brothers of Showtek as teamed up with fellow Dutchman Justin Prime. There’s been a multitude of mash-ups and vocal bootlegs (just about as many as there are for “Animal” and “Boneless”), so it’s no surprise that a vocal version would come. Enlisting the talents of Matthew Koma is sheer brilliance as he is on the top of his game with all his strong recent releases, especially his track with Hardwell, “Dare You,” and his softer, emotional voice is a strong contrast to the track. Going with a topline about shaking the earth fits perfectly and translates effortlessly for club play. Just as the previous Showtek single went top five in the UK pop chart, look for “Cannonball (Earthquake)” to ride the wave from club play to commercial radio success internationally.
