When two powerhouse producers in the electronic dance music scene come together, the results can be exceptional and that’s exactly the case for Martin Garrix and David Guetta. The pair had previously worked together on the unreleased ‘Blue Flames’ but in 2017 they combined for a finished product that was a sure-fire hit right from the off-set. To premiere the single, Martin Garrix brought David Guetta out on stage during his Tomorrowland 2017 set and the response was spectacular. ‘So Far Away’ which features vocals from Jamie Scott and Romy Dya has received over 500 million online streams since its release and it’s showing no signs of slowing down, gaining over 1 million plays a day.
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. With his label STMPD RCRDS now firmly established, Garrix has free range to do exactly that which he loves most: making music.
French electronic music producer David Guetta rose to prominence atop the sparkling wave of DJs who combined Daft Punk‘s sleek house music with a pinch of electroclash punch at the start of the 21st century. Achieving international crossover success during the late-2000s EDM boom with chart-toppers ‘One Love’ and ‘Nothing But the Beat’, his house anthems became fixtures on the dance charts into the 2010s, often featuring famous names from the worlds of pop and rap, including frequent collaborators Nicki Minaj, Sia, Rihanna, and more. David Guetta was also recently crowned #1 DJ in the 2020 DJ Mag top 100, previously topping the list in 2011.
