The second annual Spring Awakening Music Festival took place last weekend at Soldier Field in Chicago, IL. Consequence of Sound caught up with many of the performers for a series of intimate conversations. On this installment, Derek Staples sits down with Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen a.k.a Showtek prior to their main stage performance. Watch as they discuss how Wu-Tang Clan albums were amongst their earliest influences, how they constantly try to change their sound, and why EDM has become a friendly competition between DJs and producers.

Keep an eye out for many more interviews from Spring Awakening.  Make sure to follow Rock it Out! Blog on Twitter and Facebook, and subscribe to its YouTube channel.
