Leading DJS - Martin Garrix
In these fickle times, success stories come and go with shocking regularity. At just 20 years of age however, Martin Garrix has proven his uncanny ability to expertly navigate the competitive entertainment industry, and has established himself as a behemoth of both the electronic and pop worlds. This speaks volumes about his talent, maturity and vision. If 2013 was his breakthrough year, 2016 was the year he staked his claim as more than a dance music A-lister. Indeed, dance music remains his love and focus—but as was evident from his all-conquering #1 hit “In The Name Of Love” with Bebe Rexha - Garrix's horizons have broadened dramatically. Racking up over a billion cumulative streams since the release and dominating airwaves across the world, the track was the sound of Garrix laying a marker in the sand. A marker that reminded us that he leads and doesn’t follow, breaking away from the status quo and showing that his musicality translates potently from the dancefloor to the world of pop.
