In a discussion for the most dedicated and hard-working DJ or Producer in the electronic dance music scene, it would be tough not to make a case for the Dutch superstar Martin Garrix. 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.
Turning his attention towards making a change for the better, Martin Garrix recently held a show in his home country Holland, with all proceeds going towards the Warchild Holland Charity. During this show, he rose an incredible amount of 270,000 euros which will go to the charity in it’s entirety.
“I am committed to children because they deserve the world. The worst thing is that they are the victims of the place where they grow up, or the way in which they grow up. I want to give every child a chance. When I see what War Child does … that’s so special. I am happy to be able to contribute.” – Martin Garrix
