“From doing records from sampling, I started learning the science about what happened to soul music,” the Alchemist told me 13 years ago. One evening, at New York’s Baseline Studios, I sat in a backroom full of ancient, dusty records, and I listened to the Alchemist and Just Blaze talk about disco. The … More »
“I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved.” The sentence is simple; the sentiment is deep. Lewis Capaldi howls these words at the peak of his breakthrough hit, his coarse, hearty vocals lending gravitas to the maudlin piano figure at the song’s spine. “Someone You Loved” is a ballad about the pain of … More »
One of 2019’s biggest collaborations of 2019 was undoubtedly between Martin Garrix, Macklemore, and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy for their funky seasonal jam, ‘Summer Days.’ Surprisingly, however, the power-pop trio has yet to perform the song together live in any capacity…until now.
A main-stage audience at France’s Main Square Festival was treated to a performance of the crossover anthem during Garrix’s set as Macklemore graced the stage for his verse. Both artists were booked to perform the festival that day, so this was a prime opportunity of which they took full advantage. Garrix has since posted a few of the prized clippings to his
Instagram so that fans who missed the action could get a taste of what went down that fateful evening in Arras.

Martin Garrix surprised fans by teaming up with Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy and Macklemore for “Summer Days.” Given the star studded list of collaborators, the song has unsurprisingly become a global hit, reaching the 18th slot on the Spotify Global Top 50. “Summer Days” is catchy to its core with a groovy production backdrop that serves as a foundation for both collaborators to steal the show with their vocals.
Longtime mentor and electronic music legend Tiësto has remixed the release, and in typical Tiësto fashion, he has transformed the song into a booming big room track perfect for the mainstage. He retains the vocals from Stump, but he makes the entirely new big room house production the focus of the track, having the vocals serve as a complement to the electronic elements. Tiësto’s remix of “Summer Days” is out now via STMPD Records.
Martin Garrix has released the official music video for summer anthem “Summer Days” featuring Macklemore and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy. Team Garrix and director Colin Tilley spared no creativity when it comes to the story line for the new visual.
An older women who steals the spotlight at every turn thanks to her beauty and charm is the star of the story. In fact, the video’s star is so attractive that everyone around her becomes drenched in sweat when she passes by, which undoubtedly plays into the song’s’ theme and apt titling. Garrix, Macklemore, and Stump are not immune to her charm, either, as they each make cameos throughout the video and end up sopping in sweat and she passes them by.
Garrix, Macklemore, and Stump will all take the stage to perform “Summer Days” for the first time together on the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards on June 17.
Who are all these people? This was my first time seeing the 1975, and I was shocked at the sea of humanity in front of me, packed together closely with no easy path to the front. Granted, the Manchester band are huge in their native UK, and they’ve been playing Columbus from the beginning, working … More »
This past week, massive waves were made when Fall Out Boy, Macklemore, and Martin Garrix all shared the same photo with the same caption. It was reported pretty quickly that the gang of chart-topping artists was working on a project together. Nobody expected it to drop only a few days later. Today, Garrix, Macklemore and
The post Martin Garrix, Fall Out Boy and Macklemore Team Up In This Summer’s Mega-Collab ‘Summer Days’ appeared first on EDM Sauce.
Martin Garrix likes to keep fans on their toes, and he is doing just that with newest collaboration with Macklemore and lead singer of Fall Out Boy Patrick Stump, titled “Summer Days.” Whether it is releasing “Dreamer” featuring a gospel choir and subway singer Mike Yung, which he originally recorded behind his label’s back, or dropping a surprise EP during Ultra taking fans back to his progressive roots, the producer is the perfect example of a musician who continues his experimentation amidst a roster of commercial leaning hits.
While “Summer Days” is certainly among the producer’s commercial leaning hits, it enlists a very different set of sounds and production techniques as compared to previous top 40 releases. The track leans heavily on jumpy guitar notes that frame both groovy high pitched vocals that could have easily been displaced from a 70’s disco era track. Stump’s vocals add the energy to the introduction and the chorus, while Macklemore’s singing propels the song forward serving as a framework for the drop.
Garrix spoke on the release, saying, “‘Summer Days’ is one of those tracks that makes you want to get in the car with your friends and blast it with the windows down. I’m honored to be working with Patrick and Macklemore on this track since I think they are both great artists. They are both very different in terms of style which gave the track new dimensions. I’m super happy with the end result!”
The track is most certainly the perfect melody to accompany a warm summer day with friends, and the music video, set to star all three artists, is rumored to be released shortly.

The caption invoked the opening line of Icona Pop’s inescapable “I Love It,” though now Garrix has provided more concrete context for the upcoming release. Officially titled “Summer Days,” the track features Fall Out Boy’s rhythm guitarist Patrick Stump and the “Thrift Shop” rapper, and is due to land on April 25 on Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS.
