Martin Garrix has a new single on the way. His Tomorrowland closing track has still yet to have been given a name. In preparation for the impending release, Garrix is taking his fan base back in time with the deliverance of a 12-track remix pack of his Troye Sivan collaboration, “There For You.”
Drawing on Garrix’s own diverse production style and multiple aliases over the years, the pack delves into a wide range of edits. Ranging from house to funky bass courtesy of artists like Brohug, Lione, Bart B More and Goldhouse, it’s sure to have something for everyone.
Not long ago, Martin Garrix and Ed Sheeran enticed their respective fan bases with news of a collaboration, tentatively titled “Rewind Repeat It.” The news of the project created a substantial amount of buzz among fans that quieted just as quickly as it built once Garrix later announced that the song would not be released then, nor in the future, due to label related issues that prevented the song’s publication.

Yet Garrix and Sheeran seem to have now surmounted the label bureaucracy hurdles, scaling the blockade to officially register the song with The American Society of Composers. The track appears under an updated name, “Replay Rewind,” with Garrix and Sheeran credited as the tune’s songwriters.
As a Martin Garrix Twitter account noted, the song’s addition to the ASCAP’s repository signals that the collaboration may be nearing a release date, and it just might be closer than we think.
Set to Garrix’s 2016 track “Make up your Mind,” the video shows the producer in an array of Armani outfits. Obviously comfortable in front of the camera, Martin Garrix dances around and plays a drum while showing off his new attire. You can find the gear Garrix is sporting and more on Armani Exchange’s website.
Martin Garrix spent the weekend in Ibiza not to vacation, but to deliver a series of shows that will continue tonight, August 14, as he steps behind the decks of Hï Ibiza for his Multiply event. Garrix’s work is not yet over on the Balearic island, but that didn’t stop the Dutch producer from sharing a video of the weekend’s highlights to Facebook.
More interesting than the video recap itself, however, is Garrix’s inclusion of an unreleased track. The release of so many successive IDs typically signals an incoming EP or album, but Garrix has not commented on the possibility of this yet. In the meantime, the artist’s enthusiasts can look forward to his forthcoming release of “Pizza,” his Tomorrowland closing song, due out within the next two weeks.

At just 17 years old, riding producer Heroless has already begun paving a way for himself in the scene. With three huge tracks already under his belt, including a fiery trap flip of Tchami’s “Adieu,” the Norwegian producer now gives us a taste of his sonic capabilities and production efficacy on Dua Lipa‘s “Hotter Than Hell.“
In the new remix, Heroless lowers the pitch of the Martin Garrix collaborator’s vocals, delivering, in turn, a powerful chorus rich in both resonating bass and synths. By chopping Dua Lipa’s vocals into a lead melody, Heroless creates an energetic future bass track backed by powerful stabs and popping drum kicks. Heroless’ flip of Dua Lipa’s enticing vocals on “Hotter Than Hell” showcase his ability to weave multiple genres into an effortlessly smooth final piece.
Currently in the midst of wrapping up another monumental year after announcing the possibility of becoming a two-weekend festival moving forward, renewing its contract for next year, and most recently, announcing a potential return to the U.S. come 2018, Tomorrowland 2017 has been brimming with transcendent moments from some of the best DJs in the world.
Those unable to attend have been able to watch a diverse array of sets from afar and now they too can enjoy Martin Garrix‘s set from the festival where the artist unleashed a fiery slew of unreleased material, including a pop hit, for which David Guetta joined him on stage. It seems the two connected with Ellie Goulding to deliver this star-driven collaboration. Listen to the ID and Garrix’s set in full below.
Ytramm — “Marty” spelled backwards — emerges as Garrix’s third alias. Garrix’s other side project, AREA21, garnered attention in 2016 when Garrix and fellow AREA21 constituent, American rapper Maejor, wrote and recorded “Spaceships.” Garrix later worked the track into his headlining Ultra Music Festival set at Bayfront Park, Miami.
Whereas AREA21 denotes more of a hip hop focus for Garrix, Ytram is distinctly house oriented, leading Garrix to deliver a stunning Tomorrowland set rife with house music staples. A snippet of the set appears above, complete with a shot of Ytram’s visual identifier, a white mask — seeing as nothing says “alias” quite like a head accessory.
Martin Garrix is a model now, and our biggest question is,”Why didn’t this happen sooner?”
Today it was announced that the Dutch producer will be the face of Armani Exchange’s 2017 fall collection. In an statement emailed to Billboard, Garrix said the following of his new endeavor:
“I am very thankful and very happy with how everything turned out…To me, Armani Exchange is elegant, but its also ahead of the curve. The clothing I was wearing for the campaign shoot, I would wear all of the time, because it’s comfy, super refreshing, unique, but still elegant and classic.”
Armani announced the collaboration via their socials today, July 17, further teasing some imagery from the upcoming campaign. Garrix will be modeling alongside Cara Delevingne, who is currently the female face for the brand. It seems as if Garrix is as natural of a model as he is as a producer, so it was only a matter of time before the producer took over Diplo’s reign as the next producer turned model.
