Martin Garrix wants to get in the studio with Skrillex

What do Martin Garrix and Sonny Moore – aka Skrillex – have in common? They’re both collaborator masters. Between them both, they’ve worked with an impossible amount of artists to name in one sitting and they both show absolutely no signs of slowing down any time soon. With that said, their choice of collaborators are quite different with Martin Garrix having the likes of Dua Lipa, David Guetta and Third Party in his corner and Skrillex joining forces with ASAP RockyKill the Noise and Jauz, not to mention the side projects Jack Ü and Dog Blood with Diplo and Boys Noize but wouldn’t it be interesting if the two powerhouses came together? Martin Garrix certainly thinks so.

Whilst in Japan, Garrix did an interactive session with a handful of dedicated fans to answer a bunch of questions, and one about Skrillex popped up in the mix. Answering a question which resulted in extremely positive responses from the fans in the audience, Garrix had this to say:

“I’ve known Skrillex for many years. Because we’re doing so many different styles of tracks, I think it’ll be really interesting if we get in the studio bouncing back and forth with the ideas. I’ve no idea what we will make and that’s what excites me.” 

Although, at the time of writing, there are no official confirmations or hints from either Garrix or Skrillex themselves about anything in the works currently, the quote above makes it appear like Garrix is already toying with ideas in his head about the dream collaboration and we can only imagine what craziness the two geniuses would cook up!

These past few months, Martin Garrix has started to step into the world of dubstep. First, he played ‘Lost Souls’ by Knife Party (which was unreleased at the time) at EDC Las Vegas and now he has verbally expressed interest in working directly with Skrillex. Will he create a dubstep-style track? Only time will tell!
