Martin Garrix teases David Guetta collaboration in Ibiza
Carrying the coveted title of the world’s number 1 DJ for almost a year, Martin Garrix is showing no sign of backing down, as he approaches the final stretch. Being the youngest DJ to top the prestigious annual awards, Garrix has joined forces with dance music megastar and previous number 1, David Guetta.
While there has been no official announcement from either camp with regards to a release date, the general consensus is that the track might, in fact, be a collaboration between the two producers and singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding titled ‘So Far Away’. The UK vocalist is no stranger to EDM, having previously worked on collaborations with Calvin Harris, Skrillex, Major Lazer and Kygo, taking anticipation for the release to an unmatched high.
In an effort to ‘wet the appetite’ of his adoring fans, Martin Garrix recently dropped a teaser for ‘So Far Away’ during one of his packed sets in Ibiza. The young Dutch DJ was joined on stage by Guetta, giving clubbers exactly what they had hoped for, all the while taking expectations to a whole new level. The pair had originally given fans a taste of the upcoming release during an unforgettable set at Tomorrowland in Belgium, creating a tangible buzz in the weeks leading up to Martin Garrix’s performance in Ibiza.
While the public waits for ‘So Far Away’, Martin Garrix is due to release ‘Pizza’, a track that is certainly one of his most melodically uplifting numbers to date, and will undoubtedly be a fan favourite upon release. The track opens with lusciously emotive strings, and a chord progression that undoubtedly stirs up feelings of nostalgia. ‘Pizza’ ends off with a beautifully crafted piece of orchestral magic, which will undoubtedly be welcomed by fans as they eagerly await the release of ‘So Far Away’.
