Martin Garrix has risen to global stardom in pop as well as electronic circles – and yet he’s far from being done. Dance music’s freshest talent has headlined festivals around the globe, founded a label and mentored other artists and won the #1 spot in DJ Mag’s Top 100 three times in a row. His passion, ambition, drive and maturity remain unmatched in the world. ‘Animals’ which released June 2013 was a breakout success and a game changer for the music industry. Reaching No. 1 in the UK and many other territories, it proved that a hard-hitting, dance floor-oriented track could reach pop status, ultimately reaching over a billion streams across several platforms.
The six years since have been marked by a quick march through the ranks of dance music, conquering stages all around the world and releasing more breakout hits, showcasing his diversity. Today we celebrate his 23rd birthday by looking at his top 8 tracks!
