With just about 24 days to go till this year's biggest party, we continue our focus on some of the biggest acts that will be performing. Today's featured artist is Dutch young sensation Martin Garrix, at just 17 years old he has the EDM scene in the palm of his hand. His new style sounds are a breathe of fresh air to what's being heard normally and his popularity along with his fan base are growing fast. His passion for DJ'ing started back in 2004 when he watched legend DJ Tiesto perform at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Athens, it was then he traded in his guitar for dj'ing programs and as they say, "the rest is history". The first break-through track of his "Torrent" was co-released with Sidney Samson on Tiesto's music label, Musical Freedom, since then he has now signed with Spinnin Records and his debut solo track Animals was well received across Europe when it was released last June, it then took the world by storm and in turn he became the youngest person to hold the #1 spot on Beatport. This week we feature a new track from the youngster featuring another Dutch youngster Jay Hardway, Wizard. Enjoy!
