The Story Of ‘Music Box’, A Legendary Collab Between Hardwell & Martin Garrix!

The story behind this is an interesting one. First played at Tomorrowland 2014, resulting into a track by 2 of the brightest minds in the scene; Robbert van de Corput & Martijn Garritsen. This was a collaboration everyone was asking for, with more than 1 artwork and 2 names.

How did this highly anticipated track delay and eventually shelved off? Today we’ll find out, on this week’s article about ‘Music Box’.

Back in the day, both Hardwell & Martin Garrix were at the peak of their careers. ‘Apollo’ and ‘Spaceman’ breaking the charts; ‘Animals’ being a worldwide hit. There was a controversy regarding the artwork, name, the catalogue number & even the label. For instance, it was 1st rumoured to be on Spinnin’ with the name ‘Carousel’, this rumour was immediately taken down and was suspected that it might only be released on Revealed Recordings. Many months passed by, still no word on an official release. By March 2015, the final version of ‘Music Box’ leaked in high quality. Alas, we were excited as we thought it might be released very soon.

Let’s talk about the structure. The track starts with turning the knob of a carousel, triggering the beautiful 1st break as if we’ve opened it. It’s this part of the track that makes it very unique EVEN with today’s standards. The drop wasn’t uncommon but a powerful one nonetheless, filled with energy to keep the crowd jumping throughout the whole track. The 2nd break has in the same form as the 1st one, however, this time Martin added an electric guitar chord which made it even more exciting and enthusiastic to keep on listening to the track.

Several years went by since it leaked and still no word on the official release. Finally, Hardwell did a Reddit Q&A a month before Ultra Miami 2017, clearing up the speculations of ‘Music Box’, that it has indeed been canceled. Yet, he still teased a possible collaboration in the future. There were more rumors suggesting the track to be released both on Spinnin’ and Revealed. After Martin’s departure from Spinnin’ and in fact, big room house, the whole unreleased discography of IDs will remain unreleased forever.
