French house music superstar Martin Solveig might be best known for his 2010 smash hit ‘Hello’ ft. Dragonette, but the 42-year old producer’s collaboration ‘Intoxicated’ ft. Miami based duo GTA often comes to mind first, when Solveig’s repertoire is being discussed. Any Martin Solveig production is perfectly fit to the summer season, and when he dropped ‘Intoxicated’ exactly four years ago, we almost knew instinctively that its catchy piano chords, bumping baselines and cheerful vocals would dominate the charts in many months to come.
Martin Solveig is a familiar face every year on Spanish party island Ibiza, where the popular Frenchman succesfully hosted his annual ‘My House’ concept at Club Pacha for a number of years. Last summer, he also returned to Pacha for the club’s new ‘Tuesdays on Mars’ night. Four years earlier, ‘Intoxicated’ actually was the most Shazamed track on the white isle that summer, even though the tune was already released in the winter, on January 19th of 2015 to be more precise.
At We Rave You, we recently honored the French DJ/producer, by listing our Top 10 Martin Solveig tracks of all time. Can you guess what track was our number 1?… Let’s go back to 2015 now one more time, by checking out the music video of Martin Solveig & GTA’s iconic hit down below on YouTube, where ‘Intoxicated’ has meanwhile received more than 140 million views!
