Martin Garrix shares Formula 1 Tracks Takeover playlist

The artistry of the Formula One phenomenon has been described by many over time, including legendary Formula One World Champion, Graham Hill, with the quote: “I am an artist, the track is my canvas and the car is my brush.” Here at We Rave You, we not only value incredible artistry, we also value the ideas that provide dynamic platforms, uniting music and sports.

F1 is most certainly a force to be reckoned with and they have organized another initiative worthy of global attention, and this time it’s all about music. The Formula One Tracks Takeover is coming to its end, and the closing champion is Dutch DJ/producer Martin Garrix. One of the youngest and most successful producers in dance music will be providing the fresh soundtrack for the final race of the season at the Yas Marina Circuit for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. He is closing off an incredible driving season but also joins the impressive list of artists who have contributed to the F1 Tracks Takeover throughout the year. Artists like Super M, AC/DC, Oliver Heldens and U2 have all created their Takeover playlists which you can enjoy here.

When asked about the similarities between the buzz of F1 and the buzz of live music, Garrix shares:

“I think the adrenaline when racing and when entering the stage in front of a huge crowd is very similar. Amazing feeling.”

Martin Garrix provides an uptempo playlist that is guaranteed to get your adrenaline pumping. Standout tracks include his latest release ‘Fire’ in collaboration with Elderbrook:

“The collaboration with Elderbrook happened very spontaneously. One of his tracks ended up in my Instagram story and he reached out to me. We exchanged some ideas, and Fire was born in the two weeks after.” 

 This song was first premiered at the closing of his virtual set for Tomorrowland Around The World. Other artists such as Infuze, DubVision and 3LAU are all featured and favoured within Garrix’s curated list and are signed to his Dutch record label STMPD RCRDS. You can check out the full playlist on Spotify, Deezer, or Apple Music.
