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.
Martin Garrix has released the first single with a music video, “Breach (Walk Alone)” with Blinders, in what appears to be a five-songs-in-five-days strategy. Garrix has been playing this song out since Tomorrowland 2018.
The antsy intro falls upon orchestral violins into big room organized chaos. The second verse introduces smokey vocals that supplement an exuberant anticipation build into the high energy, glitchy mayhem from the previous drop. Doused in dark, vision-doubling, eerie visuals, the music video directed by Damian Karsznia complements the hauntingly fragmented production style to a tee.
DJ Mag‘s No. 1 DJ for the last two years expressed his dual disappointment and excitement about the situation on Twitter. The five single to come out are “Access,” “Yottabyte,” “Latency,” “Breach,” and “Waiting for Tomorrow.”

Cazztek is back with a new single titled “Down Like That,” in collaboration with Man 3 Faces. Cazztek’s new drop comes by way of Martin Garrix‘s continually dominant STMPD RCRDS, pushing a quirky G-house inspired blend on his latest product.
“Down Like That” is a certified club burner, clocking in at three minutes of straight grooving, upbeat footwork house. The kick-snare combo is intertwined with chopped rap vocals throughout, weaving stylistic hip-hop accents into the fold for a sure-shot setlist weapon. Cazztek drops off a well-rounded dance party piece that’s primed for heavy DJ set rotations and bound to continue raising the emerging force’s profile on “Down Like That”. Fans can catch Cazztek perform at Martin Garrix’s closing party at Ushuaïa Ibiza later this month.
The Martin Garrix Show, now in its third season, invites fans of the electronic wunderkind to venture even further into Garrix‘s world and in the show’s newest episode, Garrix expands upon the third season’s opener in Amsterdam. The latest installment in the series follows Martin Garrix from his set at RAI Convention Center for Amsterdam Dance Event to STMPD RCRDS‘ newly established recording studios, also located in Amsterdam.
Episode two garnishes its coverage of Garrix’s ADE performance with exhilarating clips of the producer’s live setup — rigged with accenting light and LEDs, including pyrotechnic bursts, billows of smoke, and a scarlet balloon drop. “This isn’t my work, this is our work,” Garrix states at the video’s end, in a direct address to listeners that underscores the young DJ’s gratitude for the fan base that has so ardently embraced his music since he originally struck gold with “Animals” back in 2013, but also the extensive team of people that help make the international star’s work a reality.
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.
It was only a matter of time until an impressive new artist crash-landed into the ears of millions by way of Martin Garrix’s record label, STMPD RCRDS.
As it just so happens, that moment has arrived. Garrix’s first signee, Crash Land, have released their second single “Time Warp,” following their self-titled debut.
In an amalgamation of sweet nostalgia and soft synths, rapper Crash Land achieves a celestial, melodic flow — one that surely takes its listener on a journey through the sonic time spectrum. “Time Warp” is a cohesive, fresh futuristic take on hip-hop, and yet, it’s one that finds its balance among infused elements of the past. It’s a number glimmering in originality, one that brings innovators like Flying Lotus to mind.
According to Crash Land, the track tells the story of an all-encompassing love and desire that knows no boundaries of time or place. As it begins, listeners are given a mere glimpse into the future, as a wave of euphoria washes over them. Subtle instrumentals are layered underneath the rappers wherein a sharp drum sequence takes its listeners forward in time.
For months, Martin Garrix fans have been waiting to get their hands on a fixture in his summer sets: “Forever,” a collaboration with Matisse & Sadko. “Forever” marks the fourth time Garrix has teamed up with Matisse & Sadko, following hits like “Dragon,” “Break Through The Silence,” and “Together.” Like its predecessors, “Forever” is a well-rounded festival anthem, complete with and a dramatic organ introduction and a nostalgia-inducing melody.
The melodic house collaboration comes just days after the release of Garrix’s track with Brooks, “Boomerang,” which he put out under his old alias Grx.
