On the 4th of May, 2015, two of dance music’s biggest artists teamed up and to no surprise, they were a match made in heaven. Living legend Tiesto teamed up with Martin Garrix for a tune that underlines both artists’ innovative styles. ‘The Only Way Is Up’ revolves around distinctive vocal snippets, inimitably built as a unique melody line before euphoric chords take the track sky high. Mesmerizing, creative music, and above all an outright hit.
Tiesto is the only artist to ever hold the titles of “The Greatest DJ of All Time” courtesy of Mixmag, “#1 DJ” according to Rolling Stone, and “The Godfather of EDM” as proclaimed by Billboard. After making history in 2004 as the first DJ to open the Olympic Games, he remains a sought-after headliner everywhere from Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra, to Tomorrowland. On the other hand, 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.
