The Showhawk Duo Dance Classics

The Showhawk Duo Dance Classics
December 3, 2015 LearnMusic.Guide

Let’s rewind to July for this one, a throwback which will be well worth it for those who may have missed the Showhawk Duo! These guys are music pioneers and have been astounding worldwide audiences with their new approach to playing the guitar. The twosome, Jake and Mick, rocked up on Nick Grimshaw’s Live Lounge in the summer and showcased their new playing style which breaks down the barrier between electric and acoustic guitar. We don’t necessarily think of the acoustic guitar as a natural choice for dance music, but this pair really make it work.

In the video we see the guys take on some Ibiza classics including Faithless and Tiesto’s Adagio For Strings. The studios reaction says it all and Nick tells us that the phone lines are going mad. The pair seem very modest and unaware of the attention they are clearly grabbing. It is the juxtaposition of acoustic guitar and true Ibiza dance classics which make this … just awesome!

  • We’re loving this mashing together of dance and acoustic in the office this morning … dare we say ‘Dancustic’!!!?
