From Ultra Music Festival to Coachella, Martin Garrix has been teasing fans with his latest collaboration with Troye Sivan, “There For You.” The two have released the track with an official music video that features charming shots of Garrix and Sivan performing at shows and walking through scenic locations.
“There For You” deviates from Martin Garrix’s traditional big room style, and instead shows off a brilliant future bass melody consisting of a relaxed, yet moving bass line, uplifting lyrics, gentle electric guitar riffs, and of course, Troye Sivan’s enthralling voice. With a different sound than the typical, Garrix continues to surprise us with his artistry.
Martin Garrix originally premiered his new single, “There For You,” during the second weekend of Coachella. Vocalist Troye Sivan, the Dutch producer’s high-profile collaborator, joined the Garrix live on stage for its live debut – marking one of the weekend’s most publicized moments.
One month – and, seemingly, an eternity of hype – later, the two young artists have released their momentous collaboration in conjunction with its official music video. Marked by the jauntily soothing future bass style which has pervaded Garrix’s recent output, “There For You” is primed to be yet another hit fro the Dutch wunderkind.
Explosions rocked Manchester Arena at following Ariana Grande’s performance late last night in a tragic turn that made many music lovers’ worst nightmare a reality. As of publication, 22 have been proclaimed dead with dozens more are injured after the apparent suicide bombing. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility, and a 23 year old has been arrested in connection to the attack.
The Manchester bombing hits close to home for the music community as we are reminded that even attending a concert, which is supposed to be an escape, puts people at risk at our current day and age.
Grande took to Twitter to express her devastation shortly after the bombing.
Fellow artists such as Dillon Francis and Martin Garrix are taking to social media to show support for Grande and attendees. Dillon Francis has even promised to pledge money to relief funds following the incident.
Markus Schulz, whose upcoming project “The Nine Skies” was in part inspired by terrorism, also took to Twitter to express his disbelief and condolences.
Touched especially by all those queuing up to give blood. Manchester has truly shown what a strong and compassionate place it is. #LoveWins
Fans and artists alike have come together in a show of strength and hope during this sad time for Manchester victims and the industry as a whole. We are glad that the electronic music scene has banded together to provide such overwhelming support, but devastated that it has come to this.
Canadian producer Conro has already had an exceptional 2017, and the year’s not even halfway over yet.
On May 17, the producer put out his latest single on Monstercat: a laid-back track called “Lay Low.” Unlike his previous release, a high-energy remix of Martin Garrix and Dua Lipa‘s “Scared to be Lonely,” “Lay Low” emits a much more relaxed downtempo vibe.
David Benjamin‘s smooth vocals glide perfectly over Conro’s mellow beats in the track. The producer is consistently pushing the boundaries of conventional electronic music, and the remainder of the year is sure to be a success for him.
Martin Garrix seems to always find a way to tease fans with new music throughout various outlets – his brand new “Scared To Be Lonely” single featuring Dua Lipa was dropped in his AVA NYE festival set weeks before its release. Now, after just releasing the potential chart-topper yesterday, he is already previewing new music, showing that he knows how to treat his fans right.
The Dutch producer recently took to Instagram Live to give fans a short preview of one of his unfinished creations. Briefly discussing the track’s composition, he touches upon its similarity to “Tremor” and his aversion towards the single’s drop. While this only a preliminary version of Martin’s latest work, fans can still scope out his signature melodious buildup. Keeping the hype at large, Martin has once again further boosted his global status with yet another peek into his growing 2017 catalogue.
Insomniac’s multinational EDC festival franchise has announced a star studded lineup for its first ever Japanese edition. Taking place in Tokyo, Japan will be EDC’s sixth international destination, adding to the likes of Mexico, Puerto Rico, the UK, Brazil, and India.
The lineup itself fields a great number of extremely influential crowd pullers like Armin van Buuren, Martin Garrix, Marshmello, Zedd and two thirds of Swedish House Mafia in Axwell^Ingrosso. EDC Japan has also recruited musically adept producers like Nicole Moudaber, Knife Party, Kaskade, Galantis and dutch trap producers Yellow Claw, adding support and structure to the festival. Additionally, Insomniac has announced a Japanese version of the Boombox Art Car, aimed at promoting talented Japanese producers.
The festival will be held on April 29-30 in Tokyo Bay.
Teasing fans since New Years, Martin Garrix has finally released his highly anticipated single, “Scared to be Lonely” with English singer/songwriter, Dua Lipa. The Dutch producer first revealed the unreleased track at the AVA NYE festival where videos were then leaked on multiple social media platforms. Since then, music enthusiasts across the world have been eagerly waiting for the full-length release of “Scared to be Lonely.”
Now Garrix’s newest hit is here, and it was well worth the wait and trail of bread-crumbs. We already assumed the track would individually captivate us just by the sensitive title, but Dua Lipa’s velvet-smooth vocals drive the ‘feels’ straight home. Garrix’s future bass production embellishes the heart-rending lyrics, and the catchy beat carries the emotional tone throughout. With “Scared to be lonely,” Garrix has again proven to the world why he has been how he’s achieved his vanguard status in the dance music industry.
The Indy 500 has rightfully earned its designation as one of the country’s greatest sports spectacles. For some, however, the 200 laps around Indianapolis Motor Speedway play second fiddle to the entertainment that happens within the track’s inner circle at the legendary Snake Pit. Originally established in the 1970s, the Snake Pit has established a raucous reputation. Though the debauched nature of the attraction has died down somewhat in recent years, the party certainly hasn’t.
This year’s lineup promises to fall right in line with the Snake Pit’s classic notoriety. Marshmello and Zedd will assume headlining duties at the May 28 event, with additional firepower coming from RL Grime, Action Bronson, and Adventure Club. Though, perhaps the greatest draw on an already impressive roster is this year’s emcee, none other than wrestling icon Ric Flair.
SoundCloud‘s relationship with the electronic music community has been shaky in recent years. Under pressure from major labels, the streaming company has become notorious for taking down users’ productions and remixes. For casual users, this practice is frustrating. However, when SoundCloud’s automated software removes professional artists’ own tracks from their official pages, it constitutes a faux pas on SoundCloud’s behalf. The company’s deletion of Morgan Page’s account and continued removal of Four Tet’s songs come to mind as highly-publicized instances of these gaffes.
Martin Garrix is the latest high-profile casualty of SoundCloud’s automation’s purges. The Dutch producer has had his woes with the German company in the past, when his songs “Don’t Look Down” and “WIEE” were wiped from his account. Now, the software has gone on a spree, taking six different uploads of four different tracks off of his account; two versions each of “Bouncybob” and “Poison” were removed from Garrix’s SoundCloud page, as well as his Third Party and Matisse & Sadko collaborations, “Lions In The Wild” and “Break Through The Silence,” respectively. Garrix chastised the unnecessary removals on Twitter:
SoundCloud responded to Garrix’s tweet to say they were “looking into it.” Whether or not Garrix’s complaints will be alleviated remains to be seen. Perhaps, if the company’s rumored acquisition by Google goes through, SoundCloud’s automation will become more discerning. In the meantime, Dillon Francis’ response to Garrix’s woes sums the current situation up accurately:
