Martin Garrix, Matisse & Sadko collaboration ‘Dragon’ turns 6 years old

Releasing July 7th 2015, it’s been 6 years since the Dutch superstar DJ and producer Martin Garrix teamed up with the Russian duo Matisse & Sadko for their monster of a track ‘Dragon’. Garnering over 5 million Spotify streams to date the hit track eventually became a part of the collaborators ‘Break Through The Silence’ EP, and spawned a great friendship leading to many future track collaborations between the duo and Garrix, including ‘Forever’, ‘Together’ and more recently ‘Mistaken’ and ‘Hold On’ in 2019. Arguably one of their most known and well-loved tracks of the trio, the progressive house banger made waves across the world of EDM when Martin Garrix premiered it during his Electronic Daisy Carnival set in 2015.
