Martin Garrix young

Footage emerges showing Martin Garrix performing a DJ set at age 14

As one of the youngest stars to ever reach such a respected position in the electronic music industry, Martin Garrix has become a role model for young prodigies around the world ever since his breakthrough hit Animals achieved widespread success. Now, at the age of 21, he has already topped DJ Mag’s top 100 DJs poll twice, set up his own label, and released a number of chart-dominating singles collaborating with a selection of some of the most respected vocalists in the music industry. Many would argue that this success originates purely from hard work and perseverance, while others would argue that discovering DJing and producing at such a young age enabled Garrix to become a master of his craft so early in his life.

While a mixture of both is definitely true, the latter was somewhat proved by footage that has just emerged, showing Martin Garrix performing at the age of 14, mixing at a school party. Although the footage differs completely from the live sets we see him perform today, what does come across is the passion that Garrix put into performing for the crowd, and that passion has undoubtedly played a huge part in enabling him to reach the success he has achieved in his career.
