It’s easy to get lost in the numbers behind Martin Garrix’s meteoric rise to the top of today’s electronic music scene. His breakout hit “Animals” has more than 100 million streams on Spotify and half a billion views on YouTube. He’s one of Billboard’s “21 under 21” and Forbes’ “30 under 30,” has had several #1 hits on the Beatport charts, boasts more than 12.6 million fans on Facebook and 7.1 million on Instagram and holds the #3 spot on DJ’s Mag’s Top 100.
The young producer may be only 20 years old, but this talented and disruptive whiz kid is already a global phenomenon and his adventures in the music world have only just begun. He’s hooked up with superstars like Usher and Ed Sheeran and has gotten the entire planet dancing to his addictive, energizing tracks.
Most recently, he founded his own record label STPMD RCRDS, launched a new single “Now That I’ve Found You” and a collab with Third Party titled “Lions in the Wild,” hit up every major venue on the festival circuit and is hard at work on a fresh new album. Watch out world, turn up the volume because Martin Garrix is about to make some noise.
