When Tiësto closed out the summer Olympics 14 years ago, Martin Garrix dreamed of becoming a DJ. Now his life is set to come full circle as he closes out the PyeongChang Winter Olympics alongside South Korean native, Raiden. An incredible talent, rapidly emerging in the EDM scene, Raiden’s selection to represent his home country is only fitting.
Martin Garrix is starting 2018 in stunning fashion. The Winter Olympics marks the second sporting event Garrix has performed at this year, having played at the X-Games in Aspen earlier this year. In addition to this, the 21-year-old found love over the summer and has released a number of tracks this year, including ‘Happy‘ and his new collaboration with Brooks and David Guetta; ‘Like I Do‘.
Performing alongside the world’s #1 DJ, Martin Garrix, who will take to the stage moments afterwards, Raiden is set to showcase his track ‘Glory’ to thousands of onlookers inside the Olympic Stadium in PyeongChang, as well as the hundreds of millions watching the live broadcast from all corners of the globe. Fittingly, Raiden will be releasing his next record ‘Keep My Light On’ with Dubvision on Martin Garrix’s imprint, STMPD RCRDS on Friday.
In addition to this, Raiden saw a hot string of releases flourish on Protocol Recordings in 2017. His collaboration ‘C’est La Vibe‘, with groove master Tom Tyger peaked at no. 10 on Beatport, while his hard-hitting festival anthem ‘Acid Love’ reached no. 13. Raiden is also Confirmed to play at Nicky Romero’s annual Protocol Recordings Party at Miami Music Week, as well at Ultra Music Festival’s 20th anniversary.
