Martin Garrix X Third Party

Martin Garrix & Third Party collab ‘Lions In The Wild’ turns 3 years old

They’re two of the biggest acts in world music right now, and three years ago, Third Party and Martin Garrix joined forces. We are, of course, referring to the ultimate prog anthem ‘Lions In The Wild’, which was unleashed on this day in 2016. Made up of UK pair Jonnie Macaire and Harry Bass, Third Party have grown meteorically in the past few years. From supporting Swedish House Mafia at their Alexandra Palace and Miami shows in 2011, the duo released hits on SIZE Records, including Steve Angello collaboration ‘Lights’, before branching out to form their own Release Records label.

Since launching Release, the duo have spawned two studio albums (‘HOPE‘ and ‘TOGETHER), taking their iconic Release showcase evenings to venues such as Amsterdam Dance Event and London’s Ministry of Sound club. Martin Garrix, meanwhile, continues to go from strength to strength as the number #1 DJ in the world. Having gained the crown for the past 3 years in a row in the DJ Mag Top 100 poll, Martin is currently in the midst of a hectic summer tour, where he continues to play – even with a broken leg! You can relive this slice of euphoria below as these three European lions joined together to go crazy in the wild!
