Martin Garrix big room anthem ‘Helicopter’ turns 5 years old

Rewind the clock by half a decade and current number #1 DJ in the world, Martin Garrix, had yet to even make his debut on the DJ Mag Top 100. In fact, back in 2014, Martin was even making a completely different style of music, and followed up his breakthrough hit ‘Animals’ with the release of ‘Helicopter’, a collaboration with Firebeatz.

With Garrix keen to prove he was no one-hit wonder, the track scored huge success worldwide and became a festival main-stage favourite throughout summer 2014, during a period where the big room sounds of acts like Hardwell dominated the industry following the golden era for progressive house just a few years earlier.

Since amassing numerous accolades to his name, Martin Garrix is a true global superstar but with ‘Helicopter’ turning 5 years old today, we’re going to rewind the clock and give this one just one more listen for old time’s sake!
