From that moment on, Martin Garrix was immediately included in the list of the highest paid dancefloor luminaries on the planet and became the most demanded at popular music festivals.
At the famous Sensation festival, which took place in Amsterdam, he was recognized as the main artist of the year. In 2014, the single Wizard, which Garrix released together with Jay Hardway, added even more popularity to the artist. Martin also successfully collaborates with Spinnin 'Records.
At the age of four, little Martin developed an interest in the guitar and received a children's instrument at his disposal. At eight years old, he saw Tiesto - he performed at the Olympic Games, which were held in 2004 in Athens. The artist's live performance and his track "Traffic" shook the imagination of the musically gifted boy. He started saving money for DJ equipment. It took Martin three years to buy a very cheap version of the pioneering CDJs.
An eleven-year-old teenager himself mastered the FruityLoops program and began to write dance tracks. Then none of his entourage even suspected that this hobby very soon would make Martin a world famous DJ.
The guy spent his first party on his 14th birthday, having gathered for it not only all his friends, but also his acquaintances. It turned out to be great fun, after which he began to do post-production for others. And soon Records signed him to his label and began to publish his music.
With "Animals" guys from Spinnin 'Records cheated a little - they put the track on Yotube, creating a stir, and only a month later they named the author. The next morning, Martin went to school already famous.
Martin Garrix is considered a leading figure in the younger generation of DJs. And although the people around him are older in age, the young musician does not feel this difference. According to him, age is only numbers, the main thing is attitude and music.
Martin is a very busy person, so he doesn't have a license to a car yet. Often he performs in the evening, for example, somewhere in Ibiza, and in the morning, not having time to rest, he already runs to classes.
