After being premiered live at Ultra Music Festival 2014 by Martin Garrix, the massive collaboration ‘Gold Skies’ between Sander van Doorn, Martin Garrix and DVBBS was finally released on June 2nd, 2014. A song that has all the artists stepping out of their normal styles colliding forces for an infectious summer-ready progressive house heater that lived up to be one of 2014’s biggest anthems.
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.
Dutch progressive trance artist Sander van Doorn was one of the most prominent DJs and electronic music producers to arise during the first half of the 2000s. His style has ranged from tech-house and progressive house during the mid-2000’s to more vocal-driven electro-house and EDM throughout the 2010s. Although he is known more for DJ’ing – since 2006, he’s been a regular presence on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ surveys along with releasing stunning productions of his own.
Formed in 2012 in Toronto, Canada, production/DJ duo DVBBS have built a strong discography, which has collectively garnered the group platinum sales in nearly a dozen countries and over 1 billion online streams to date. Following their 2012 debut EP, ‘Initio’, DVBBS gained international acclaim via their chart-topping single, ‘Tsunami’, in 2013.
