A track that has been buzzing since its release on August 26th is Showtek’s ‘Swipe,’ a social media troll that describes the reign of the world we live in today, where online presence seems to be the only thing that matters.
Showtek: “‘Swipe’ is a message to the social media world, where everything is about looks, appearances and selfies. The pressure that social media is generating for the (next) generation(s) is very frightening. ‘Swipe’ is our funny way of making people aware of this.”
‘Swipe’ is also a piece of smashing EDM, fleshed out with highly recognizable and satirical lyrics involving Instagram models, Tinder, and more. Since its release, the track has racked up almost 200,000 streams on Spotify alone and is currently holding the fifth spot in the Electro House charts on Beatport after peaking at #2 earlier this month.
