Martin Garrix’s rise up the DJ ranks and wide-spread popularity has been massive in 2015. With his kind-hearted generosity continuing with the free release of “Poison”, it’s fair to say his choice to take some well-earned down time is more than understandable.
However, Garrix hasn’t just been busy featuring in numerous tracks titles and headlining festivals. His work as a ‘ghost producer’ has also seen him gain significant success and respect from many in the scene. And while some of these you may know about, we’re hedging a bet that there’s a few surprises in their for most of you.
Check out the list below:
1. Shermanology & GRX – Can’t You See
– The GRX name title sort of gives it a way, but the track does reflect a grittier progressive side of the young Dutchman rather than the numerous melodies we know and love.
2. Yellow Claw & GRX & Cesqeaux – Psycho
– GRX could be Martin Garrix’s experimental alter ego by the looks of things. Tapping into trap, it seems this ‘alias’ could be featuring on any sub-genre at any time.
3. Matisse & Sadko vs Vigel – TENGU
– This one remains the most vague in how exactly Martin was involved, but the most popular theory is that a number of parts sourced from Martin’s and Matisse & Sadko time in the studio, but didn’t make the cut for “Dragon” and “Break Through The Silence”. Leading to Vigel combining forces with the pair to flesh out a track from what remained.
4. Avicii – Waiting For Love
– Likely the track you had heard was linked to the Martin Garrix. While not formally credited, their collaborative tracks is certainly not a let down, and once again reflect Garrix’s willingness and ability to stretch his talents across a huge array of sounds and styles.
5. Yes-R – De Wereld Rond
– Here’s one you weren’t expecting. Coming all the way from Sepetember 2012, fellow Dutchman Yes-R’s album “De Wereld Rond” (Around The World) received one of the earliest touches of Garrix’s talents. While relatively underwhelming and pretty standard, everyone’s got to start somewhere – even Martin Garrix.
