Martin Garrix: jongste artiest ooit op nummer 1 in belangrijkste dance chart

Martin Garrix DJ Dancefreax 2013
Een van de meest gehypte en besproken teasers van mei 2013 was de teaser voor het nummer ‘Animals’. De naam van de DJ werd van te voren niet genoemd en vanaf dat moment raakten fans en bloggers in verhitte discussies over welke producer hier achter zou kunnen zitten. Het bleek de zeventienjarige Nederlandse Martin Garrix te zijn, officieel door het populaire magazine Billboard aangekondigd.

Na het stijgen in de hitlijsten de afgelopen week, bereikte ‘Animals’ de veelgeprezen nummer 1 plek op de belangrijkste dance chart op het web: Beatport.

Martin Garrix Animals Spinnin' Records Dancefreax 2013
Martin Garrix’ naam gonst nu al een tijdje in de internationale dance scene.
Omdat hij met ’s werelds grootste dance label Spinnin’ Records en boekingskantoor ‘Ace Agency’ werkt, die ook DJ sterren als Afrojack, Sander van Doorn, Quintino en Rehab vertegenwoordigen, is Martin’s ster rijzende. Online magazine Dancing Astronaut benoemde Martin vorige week nog tot een van de vijf ‘Breakthrough Artists Summer 2013’

Martin Garrix over zijn eerste # 1 hit: “Ik ben zo blij …. Ik kan nog steeds niet geloven dat dit gebeurt!”

“Animals” krijgt de support van de grootste DJ’s ter wereld, zoals David Guetta, Afrojack, Sander van Doorn, Chuckie, Tommy Trash en Danny Howard. Steve Aoki bestempelde de track als ‘HUGE!’ en Fedde Le Grand draaide “Animals” onlangs in zijn radioshow. Het was ook een van de meest gespeelde nummers op Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.

Al deze belangrijke verwezenlijkingen in zo’n korte tijd, zorgen ervoor dat Martin Garrix goed op weg is om de hotste EDM act ter wereld te worden, dus houd je ogen en oren open!

Afrojack’s ‘Jacked’ European Summer Tour 2012

Afrojack, one of the world’s most prominent DJs and producers, is about to set off on the largest European summer tour in his career. For over two months, Afrojack will cross almost every border in Europe to play the continent’s most prestigious festivals and venues starting on the sixth of July. Afrojack will visit nineteen different countries in less than three months to play at an imposing total of over forty shows including Tomorrowland (Belgium), Creamfields (England), Balaton Sound (Hungary) and Global Gathering (England and Ukraine).

Besides playing at Europe’s most anticipated summer events, Afrojack adds several of his own ‘Jacked’ events to his hectic schedule. The ‘Jacked’ events at Ibiza’s legendary club Amnesia, BCM Mallorca and a ‘Jacked’ take-over during ‘F*** Me I’m Famous’ at Pacha Ibiza – hosted by world’s #1 DJ David Guetta – are assured highlights of Afrojack’s extensive summer tour.

Since the foundation of Afrojack’s ‘Jacked’ in July 2011, the party concept has expanded to one of world’s most popular club nights. R3hab, Shermanology, Apster and Bobby Burns, who all form a part of Afrojack’s valued imprint Wall Recordings, will join Afrojack during the upcoming ‘Jacked’ events and select dates of the tour.

Afrojack returns to Europe right after his first own ‘Jacked’ tour in North America. The #7 of DJ Mag’s Top 100 hosted over 40 of his infamous ‘Jacked’ parties in cities like Miami, Las Vegas, Chicago, New York and Atlantic City. In addition to his own tour dates, Afrojack delivered mind-blowing performances at multiple major American festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, Electric Daisy Carnival New York and Coachella.

Soon after this summer tour, Afrojack will release his long awaited album. Afrojack produced the album earlier this year during his stay in Los Angeles and will include collaborations with a number of world known artists. Afrojack will surely preview tracks of this forthcoming album during his shows in the next months.

Nieuw album Hardwell


Op vrijdag 6 juli verschijnt het nieuwe album ‘Revealed Volume 3’ van de Nederlandse DJ/producer Hardwell op het gelijknamige label ‘Revealed’.
Het album is een mix-compilatie en bestaat staat naast eigen materiaal ook vol met hits van Dada Life, Tiësto en Wolfgang Gartner, artiesten met wie Hardwell geregeld tracks produceert en tegenkomt tijdens zijn wereldtours.

Het 24-jarig talent is zonder twijfel momenteel één van de meest succesvolle producers/DJ’s in de wereld. Vorig jaar kwam hij in de toonaangevende DJ Mag Top 100 poll, welke gisteren weer van start is gegaan, als hoogste Nederlander binnen op nummer #24.

Draaide hij twee jaar geleden hoofdzakelijk nog in Nederland, nu heeft hij al een eigen residence in VIP Club Marquee in Las Vegas. Daarnaast staat hij op hoofdpodia van grote Amerikaanse festivals met meer dan 100.000 bezoekers als Ultra Music Festival in Miami en EDC Las Vegas.

De afgelopen twee jaar werkte Hardwell samen met onder andere Tiësto en Chuckie en produceerde hij remixen voor namen als RihannaTaio CruzArmin van Buuren en Martin Solveig. Zijn track ‘Cobra’ werd het officiële anthem voor ID&T evenement Energy.

Zijn huidige single ‘Call Me A Spaceman’, met vocalen van Mitch Crown, is een internationale hit en is in veel landen in de charts terug te vinden.

In Nederland is dit zowel zijn tweede Radio 538 DanceSmash als tweede Top 40 hit van dit jaar.
