Martin Garrix unleashes new music during sensational Coachella set

With California festival Coachella in full swing, it was DJ Mag’s #1 DJ in the world, Martin Garrix, who set tongues wagging with a flurry of stunning mixes and new tracks during his set. In a celebration of an incredible Day 2 of Coachella’s first weekend, it was Garrix, the EDM wonder kid, who closed down the action in the Sahara Tent, treating fans in the process to a brand new ID.

Fresh off the release of his latest single “Byte,” with Brooks, the Dutchman’s popularity is at an all-time high, particularly with audiences in the States, and this was the track that the superstar chose to open his set with, getting things off to a thumping and frenetic start. Soon, the packed attendees were given a sneak peak of the 20 year-old’s collaboration with global megastar Ed Sheeran, labelled “Rewind Repeat It” before the “Only Way Is Up” producer launched into his classic MOTi team-up “Virus (How About Now).

Having mixed through a flurry of classics, Martin Garrix then unleashed his brand new ID, a feel-good melodic production that is believed to be the result of a studio team-up with French DJ Florian Picasso, the great-grandson of famous artist Pablo Picasso. The anthem is sure to be a future hit, and certainly went down well with the bouncing Coachella crowd.

On a night when DJ Snake brought out legendary singer Lauryn Hill for a live vocal, the “Animals” producer was not to be outdone, and introduced Dua Lipa to the stage for a live performance of ‘Scared to be Lonely’ before ending his set with DallasK‘s remix of his very own “In The Name of Love.” The full tracklist for the Dutch juggernaut’s electric Coachella set can be found here, whilst be sure to check out the incredible sing along moment below that gave those in the crowd chills down their spines.
