On the 17th of February, 2014, chart shredder and mastermind behind the #1 hit worldwide ‘Animals’, Martin Garrix teamed up alongside fellow Dutchmen Firebeatz to bring you ‘Helicopter’. The result of which was, to no surprise, a massive festival anthem that broke dancefloors across the world. Peak time, main stage, big room electro of the highest quality grade available from two acts that have continued to revolutionize the electronic dance music scene.
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.
Formidable Dutch pairing Firebeatz have caused a stir in the industry over the last few years. Having made waves with their unparalleled live energy and ground-shaking productions, the duo have garnered a sizable loyal following worldwide. As regulars at major festivals like Tomorrowland, EDC, Ultra, Creamfields, and more, they’ve cemented their position as accomplished performers within the events circuit.
