Martin Garrix Drops Incredible Matisse & Sadko Collab at Freaky Deaky [WATCH]

Martin Garrix has yet another larger than life collaboration on the way, this time with Matisse & Sadko.


“Hold On (We’re Almost There)” is a grand Garrix production and a true EDM anthem. When Garrix played it out at Freaky Deaky over the weekend, time seemed to stand still — with everyone’s hands in the air.

Previously, Garrix tested out the track at Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), but video footage from the stream kept getting taken down. Thanks to someone in the audience at Freaky Deaky, we have a high quality video of the unreleased collab and the kind of magic it radiates.

For many dance music fans, there’s no better collaborative combo than Martin Garrix and Matisse & Sadko. They only amplify that notion here. Just watch.

Martin Garrix Drops Strangely Pleasant Song “Used To Love” For Halloween

Everyone today is dropping spooky tracks or mixes in celebration of Halloween — except for Martin Garrix. Honestly, it’s hard to tell if there’s a spooky bone in the wholesome Dutch boy’s body, and his new song with Dean Lewis, “Used To Love,” reinforces the suspicion that there isn’t.


“Used To Love” is the usual Garrix fare, with some quaint vocal chops in the drop and an non-intrusive melody. Lewis’ voice never really stands out from the production, which itself never really reaches any sort of crescendo. It’s a lot like his songs “No Sleep” with BONN or “There for You” with Troye Sivan, showing off a more mellow side to his sound, rather than the firework-inducing main stage bangers most people know him for.

Check out “Used To Love” from Martin Garrix and Dean Lewis below, out now on STMPD RCRDS. Catch Martin Garrix on tour here.

Disclosure, Chromeo, & More Added To An Already Stacked Djakarta Warehouse 2019

Not EDC, not Ultra, but Djakarta Warehouse in Indonesia has presented one of the strongest lineups of 2019. There’s a lot to be said about the undercard and support in curating a festival lineup, but when you have headlining sets from Calvin Harris and Skrillex and Zedd and Martin Garrix… not much else needs to be said.


Better yet, September’s lineup drop was only Phase 1, and the festival has just announced Phase 2. Joining this already stacked lineup will be Disclosure, Chromeo, Markus Schulz, Salvatore Ganacci, Coone, Yung Bae, and still more to be announced.

DWP takes place December 13 – 15 at Jakarta International Expo in Indonesia. Tickets and info here.

Martin Garrix Receives Plaque For Reaching 10 Billion Streams In Last 3 Years

Tiësto just recently received a massive plaque from Universal Music Group for his achievement of 4.5 billion streams, but Martin Garrix just handily eclipsed that with his own plaque and major streaming record.


While the plaque is considerably smaller, Garrix was awarded it for 10 billion streams, and that’s in just the last three years! While he has yet to hit the coveted one billion streams (at least, solely on Spotify) on any one of his tracks, pretty much all of his hits have more than 100 million each.

(Buy: Tickets to upcoming Martin Garrix shows)

His biggest tracks include “In The Name Of Love” (868 million), “Scared To Be Lonely” (733 million), and “There For You” (454 million).

Check out his plaque below that he got from Sony Music, along with the photo of his massive team who helps make it all possible.

Martin Garrix to Soundtrack UEFA EURO 2020

Martin Garrix to Soundtrack UEFA EURO 2020

Coming hot out of Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), Martin Garrix is gearing up for his biggest project to date.


He’s teaming up with UEFA EURO 2020 to soundtrack the league’s final draw and produce the official song. Over the weekend, the 23-year-old superstar DJ/producer announced his new role while performing a hometown show at ADE.

The song will be revealed in spring 2020 and performed for the first time at the UEFA EURO 2020 opening ceremony at the Olimpico in Rome on June 12, 2020.

“It’s crazy to think that UEFA EURO 2020 will be held across 12 different cities, but it’s the perfect way to celebrate 60 years of this incredible competition. Music is my passion, but I’m also a huge football fan, so it’s extra special for me to be able to create the official song for what will be the biggest EURO in history.” – Martin Garrix

Just yesterday, Garrix ranked No. 2 on DJ Mag‘s 2019 Top 100 DJs list, after coming in at No. 1 for three consecutive years.

See below and get hyped for the UEFA Euro 2020!

Breaking Down The 2019 DJ Mag Top 100

The last couple years in EDM have seen a considerable amount of upheaval. DJs overall are being more open about their mental health, leading to inconsistent touring, as well as engendering them with a broader audience. New artists are making waves, main stage DJs are stagnating, and younger artists are showing their stamina and drive more than ever. Now that the full results of this year’s DJ Mag Top 100 have been revealed, let’s take an in depth look at how this year compares to previous years.


New blood

Whereas 2017 has sixteen new entries, 2018 only had five. This year, there were twelve new entries, including two powerhouse women in techno, Peggy Gou and Charlotte De Witte. Other names like Henri PFR, Solardo, and Deniz Koyu have been in the game for a while and seem to be finally gaining recognition, at least within the scope of the Top 100.

But notable among the new names are Illenium and Fisher, who came in at 64 and 63, respectively. Illenium has long been eligible for the list, but it appears that his notoriety has finally hit a fever pitch. With major shows at Madison Square Garden and Red Rocks, as well as a stellar third album, he deserved it this year more than ever. On the same note, Fisher has become something of an icon and his placement in the list is no surprise at all.

Women continue to rise

Martin Garrix Debuts New “ETHER” Show At ADE, Closes Set With B2B From David Guetta & Tiësto

Last night in Amsterdam, Martin Garrix debuted his new live show “ETHER” at RAI Amsterdam. He’ll do the same tonight, but the first night was especially epic as the first-ever reveal of the show, and especially because of how it ended.


Toward the very end of his set, Garrix brought up Tiësto and David Guetta onto the stage, both of whom have served faithfully as mentors of the young producer since his early days as a DJ.

“If it wasn’t for these two guys, I wouldn’t be making music, I wouldn’t be Martin Garrix,” he says as drops into Tiesto & SEVENN’s “Boom.” The three would continue to play together until the end of the night.

See a snipped of the massive B2B2B below!!

ADE & Dance Music Thrive In 2019 with 400,000 Attendees & €150 Million In Exports

ADE & Dance Music Thrive In 2019 with 400,000 Attendees & €150 Million In Exports

Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is absolutely massive this year, as 400,000 people are expected to attend the music festival and conference. Furthermore, it’s quite obvious the city’s dance music scene is absolutely thriving in 2019 — and here’s the proof.


This news comes as Dutch DJs are expected to generate €150 million in exports this year. In addition, dance music now accounts for 75% of music exports, according to a new report courtesy of ING economists and radio station 538.

“Dutch DJs have accounted for half or more of the top 10 DJs worldwide for the past seven years,” according to the report.

The top earners are reportedly Tiësto, Martin Garrix and Armin van Buuren — all of which are expected to throw down at ADE this year.

Over 2,500 artists will perform across 200 venues. Plus, about 600 speakers will present during the five-day program.

ADE 2019 runs today through Sunday.

Martin Garrix Says Avicii’s Death Has Brought DJs Closer Together

Avicii’s death in 2018 was a shock to everyone. The suddenness of it all, the lack of any signs took everyone’s collective breath away in one swift moment — it was also a wake up call and a rallying cry for much of the music industry.


Since Avicii’s death, many DJs have been more open about cancelling shows or just taking time off to focus on mental health, or health in general. Speaking with Dutch publication Het Parool, Martin Garrix says it brought the DJ community closer together.

“It was weird what happened to him, but his death did trigger something in the scene,” he said. “There is much more awareness that we DJs are just people.”

The aftermath of Avicii’s death, as mentioned before, is plain to see. Even in other genres of dance music, Cookie Monsta, Kayzo, Flosstradamus and more are being wary of their mental state and are taking time to let their bodies and minds recover.

Read Martin’s full quote about Avicii below.

“I was really devastated by his death. I was a good friend of Tim and I often toured with him. That life was not for him, I saw that. His decision to stop concerts must have been difficult, but it was wise. We talked a little less because of that, but I thought he was fine. It was weird what happened to him, but his death did trigger something in the scene. There is much more awareness that we DJs are just
