Martin Garrix presents new show concept for ADE in newest episode of The Martin Garrix Show

Martin Garrix presents new show concept for ADE in newest episode of The Martin Garrix ShowMartin Garri ADE

Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) came to a close recently, but Martin Garrix takes viewers back to his extensive preparation for the event in the most recent episode of The Martin Garrix Show. The Garrix team debuted a brand new show concept during his ADE show titled, Team Garrix Presents: Anima.

Anima is a story that features four chapters: consciousness, void, transcendence, and worlds, all of which the attendee is exposed to sonically and visually throughout the performance. As Garrix puts it, the show has truly become an “art form.”

Garrix notes during the episode, “I’ve been looking forward to this week for a long long time. The preparation that went into this week compared to any other show is not even fair. It’s not comparable.”

As viewers watch what goes into the graphics, music videos, lighting, and studio preparation, the aforementioned comment’s validity becomes apparent. The ADE show coincided with Garrix’s full release of his Bylaw EP, wherein he released five tracks in five days. Bylaw collaborators Dyro and Blinders both make cameos during the momentous episode.

Martin Garrix has released the third single and music video in his five-day release spree. On October 17, he dropped the highly anticipated track, “Latency” featuring Dyro, which premiered at Tomorrowland 2018.

With massive drum right off the bat, big synths are filtered in through anticipation risers and then fully introduced alongside everyone’s favorite instrument: the cowbell. The energy builds with notes of early electro house from acts like Dada Life and Deorro, and the drop doesn’t shy away from that theme. That big synth is back sounding louder than ever with a thumping kick pounding through the gritty, melodic notes. A second verse introduces a new, wind instrument-sounding synth that’s later accompanied by a vocal melody that congeals into the heavier original melody.

So far, all three music videos were directed by Damian Karsznia, and there’s no reason to think the next two aren’t similar. Glitchy, cool, quick-paced clips battle back and forth, showcasing different people. In the video for “Latency,” parkour clips complement the dangerous, big lead-synth on the track.

Dyro is known for his ability to produce smooth electro house tracks juxtaposed with heavy bass tracks. He has gone dubstep for his debut release on Martin Garrix‘s STMPD RCRDS titled “Bring It Down.”

The monstrous production features commanding vocals that fall into a hectic and heavy drop manufactured for live performance. The Amsterdam based DJ and producer is sure to drop this in upcoming performances, and fans can see him at Balaton Sound festival in Hungary.
