Showtek

Imagine being part of something that is big and getting bigger. You can literally sense its growth not by rumors or by chance, but by being part of a movement. A movement that meets and likes to party hard at the weekend and then go back to work Monday morning, feeling fulfilled. Ladies and Gentlemen, we give you Showtek!

Over the past two years Showtek have become more than an act; it’s a movement, a tribe formed by the producer duo and its fans that is united in its love for music, excitement, artistic freedom and adventure. More than anything else, the tribe is the source of motivation and energy for Showtek and it is their mission to nurture it and help it grow. The music always comes first, no amount of success or fame will change that.

We live in exciting times. The dance music revolution is happening right here and Showtek are committed to leading the charge with a sound that is always pushing forward—always riding on the cutting edge. Front row seats on the craziest ride in the scene.

Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen, aka Showtek, two brothers from Eindhoven have been making music for over a decade. Two rebels kicking against the shins of establishment, speaking a language the party crowd could believe in.
It was in 2012 when they truly exploded onto the global dance scene with the release of ‘Cannonball’. Childhood dreams became reality. Countless new fans joined. New productions got recognized and reached all corners of the planet, following the release of ‘Booyah’; a track that has Showtek written all over it, that it screamed it so loud that everyone sat up and listened, resulting in a top #5 spot in the UK singles chart and their first worldwide major hit! Momentum gaining, hundreds of thousand of fans worldwide have their eyes fixed on anything that is yet to come.

MakJ

Mackenzie Johnson, better known as MAKJ, uncovered a passion for mixing and DJ’ing at only 15 years of age while living overseas in China as a professional racecar driver. The teenager soon grabbed hold of his first set of Technics 1200 Turntables and the rest was history. As a 17-year-old, Johnson made his way back to the United States with a unique outlook and greater ambition than ever before. The insight Johnson acquired abroad gave him incredible local momentum; Johnson found himself repeatedly invited to DJ countless local university and community college events in his hometown of San Luis Obispo, CA. It was at this age that MAKJ also received priceless DJ’ing tutelage from one of the best in history, the late great DJ AM himself, who trained MAKJ in the art of scratching over the course of several one-on-one lessons. MAKJ’s creativity and diversity as an artist have shown through in his production work with his tracks deservingly awarding him much critical acclaim and praise. His originals, edits, bootlegs, and remixes have received immense support from renowned artists such as Hardwell, Tiesto, Afrojack, Porter Robinson, Chuckie, Avicii, Laidback Luke, Nicky Romero, Michael Woods, Nervo, Bingo Players, Sander Van Doorn, W&W, Showtek, David Guetta and many others.
At only 23 years of age, Mackenzie Johnson has achieved an almost unfathomable amount of success.

His dedication to his craft and ambition to surpass any and all competitors will further propel MAKJ higher than he could ever have imagined.
