Last month, we hailed Martin Garrix as one of our best new artists of the month, and now we’re proud to present a video tracking a day in the life of the budding EDM star, whose Martin Garrix (The Remixes Part 1), arrived on January 28th (The Remixes Part 2 is coming soon, also via Casablanca Records).
As Garrix told us, his interest in music was piqued during the big games a decade ago: “It was 2004 and I was watching TV with my parents, who mentioned that a famous Dutch DJ would perform at the Olympics, so we watched it together. It was the first time I ever saw a DJ performing and when I watched how Tiësto was DJing, I just thought it was the coolest thing and wanted to do it myself!”
Garrix’s day in the life clip follows him all around the Big Apple, including a few trips on the subway. “I love New York! I had such an amazing time shooting the video during my first headlining US tour,” he says.
