Martin Garrix may not be a superhero or a secret agent, but he does possess two identities.
A 17-year-old student by day, but when the sun goes down he can be found behind the decks in front of packed hotspots and festivals across the globe,
fraternizing with electronic dance music royalty, tirelessly producing in the studio, and ping records.
You probably know him for his monster hit ‘Animals’, that reached the #1 position in several countries worldwide including Holland, Belgium and
England, as well as Top 5 in Australia, France, Spain, and Germany.
Following up the success of "Animals", his remix of Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike and Sander van Doorn’s "Project T" got supported by the biggest DJs
around, after which his track ‘Wizard’ with Jay Hardway ascended #1 on Beatport, making it the youngest artists ever to reach the top spot on
Beatport.com’s Main Chart.
“I want to show everyone that if you pursue your dreams, they can come true no matter what. That's what I want to do."Martin Garrix may just be
a superhero after all.
