At just 21 years old, Martin Garrix has established himself as a behemoth of both the electronic and pop worlds. If 2013 was his breakthrough year, 2016 was the year he staked his claim as more than a dance music A-lister. Dance music remains his focus—but Garrix's horizons have broadened dramatically. Next to that, his own STMPD RCRDS label is releasing new music from other great (upcoming) artists.
Martin's move into the world of pop and the mainstream at large should come as little surprise. His 2013 debut Animals went to No. 1 in the UK and he quickly embraced his appeal to the wider world, collaborating with megastars like Tiësto, Avicii and Usher.
In The Name Of Love marked the next chapter in his efforts for crossover domination, including an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and 2 wins at the MTV EMA’s. In 2017, he released more stunning singles including Scared to be Lonely and There For You.
The synergy between his studio and live shows is undeniable, and has landed him the #1 spot on DJ Mag Top 100 for 2016 and 2017. He performs the biggest festivals in the world, from Coachella and Lollapalooza, to Ultra Music Festival and Tomorrowland, and 2017 saw him hold down a residency at Omnia, Las Vegas as well as 2 season-long shows on Ibiza at Ushuaïa and Hï.
Forging a phenomenal career that belies his age, Martin Garrix has achieved what many could only have dreamed of in a lifetime. One thing is for certain, he is only just getting started.
