In three separate instances since July of last year, Martin Garrix and Bonn have come together for a pairing that is not-so-subtly imbuing as one of the most authentic producer/vocalist combinations in modern dance music.

After crowd-testing the production during his lone Tomorrowland appearance of 2019 at his STMPD Records stage, Garrix has expediently readied his fifth original of the year, as he relinquishes “Home.” The release arrives under a month prior to “These Are the Times,” which the young gun curated as part of his AXE partnership, and serves as Garrix and Bonn’s third official union.

“Home,” while distinctly inspiriting in its own manner, mildly deviates from the lighthearted resolve that “High On Life” and “No Sleep” exude. Garrix promptly advertises his acoustic versatility as Bonn demonstrates for a third consecutive mark that his vocals could not be more suitable atop Garrix’s globally recognizable production. As directly embodied within the lyrics “Back to my roots / Yeah, it’s been so long,” the 23 year old evokes mementos of his masterful electro-house blend from releases such as “Oops” and “Forbidden Voices.”

The 2019 iteration of Belgium’s world-renowned Tomorrowland has come and gone. One notable act that was all-too-perceptibly missing from this year’s 15th anniversary lineup was Swedish House Mafia. The Stockholm trio were rumored to be closing the main stage for Weekend 2, after Martin Garrix was confirmed as the closing act on the STMPD Records stage for the first weekend only, leaving the following weekend’s slot up for grabs. But when Swedish House did not end up performing, many were not shy about expressing their disappointment.

Fans fortunately did get a full set from Swedish House member, Axwell, who played an hour-and-15-minute set on his label-branded stage, Axtone. Fans audibly hungered for the performance; and Axwell delivered. The set includes a forthcoming Swedish House Mafia release around the 12-and-a-half minute mark, alongside the long list of Axwell originals. Stream the full set below.

If the rumor is to be believed, then the sonic worlds of Martin Garrix and Drake will soon collide—likely resulting in an explosive new collaboration. A leaked screenshot of DM exchanges with a photographer affiliated with producer Murda Beatz sparked speculation that the Canadian hip-hop royal and the “Summer Days” producer were at work together on a forthcoming tune. “Nah, it’s crazy the world will shake,” says the Murda Beatz affiliate in the private message exchange as “Mr. from the 6” is revealed to be the collaborator Garrix is currently linked with.

Martin Garrix recently gave an interview with 538 Radio at Tomorrowland in which he imparted that he has now worked with the most prominent artist of his career to date, suggesting that the photographer’s claim could in fact be credible. “I’ve been in the studio with someone, I can’t say with whom yet, but that [it] is perhaps the biggest name ever,” Garrix told 538 Radio.

On the evening of July 4 during Martin Garrix’s long-awaited return to the stage following a near six-week performing hiatus due to an acute ankle injury, the Dutch superstar crowd-tested an unreleased production during his Ushuaïa Ibiza residency.

The animated ID was hastily met with widespread fan support and anticipation as speculation arose that it would be the soundtrack to Garrix’s forthcoming partnership with AXE body spray. After serving up the tune as a staple piece in every performance in the weeks following, Garrix has officially unveiled his new venture as he joins forces with the men’s hygiene company for “These Are the Times” featuring vocalist JRM.

Faultlessly falling in line alongside Garrix’s recent discography of more benign and pop-leaning creations, “These Are the Times” is yet another invigorating breath of fresh air from the 23-year-old producer. Adorned in his signature toybox elements with a seemingly Avicii-influenced progressive approach, coupled with inspiriting lyrics from JRM, Garrix lengthens his comprehensive archive of summer offerings. With a forthcoming appearance in Belgium this Friday for his STMPD Records stage performance at Tomorrowland, there is little doubt that Garrix will introduce the dance music world to more new music from his ever-extending sonic reservoir.

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.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Listen in playlist format here.


Who would’ve thought Bring Me The Horizon and Sub Focus were a match made in heaven? The English drum ‘n’ bass producer has truly worked his magic on this subtle January release from the rock band, meticulously maintaining its delicate aspects while sprinkling in more intense drum ‘n’ bass elements. The beauty of this remix is that it doesn’t detract from the brilliance BMTH’s original. Instead, it gives listeners a refreshing new way to digest its intricacies.

Haywyre was the perfect person to tap for an official remix of Martin Garrix‘s “Summer Days.” The pianist brings an effortlessly groovy air to the track, incorporating funk-laden synths during the instrumental-focused sections and gorgeous piano chords to the vocal intervals. Like all Haywyre tunes, it’s impossible to not bob your head or tap your foot on this one. Check him out playing it live here.

In his new two-track EP for Liquicity Records, mystery producer Oakwite shines. “Chlorophyll,” in particular, is full of intrigue. The name for the song is fitting, as the artist appears to convert sunlight into alluring drum ‘n’ bass. The new body of work follows the February release of Oakwite’s bootleg of nothing,nowhere’s “Hammer,” which also proved to be beautifully unique.

London-based drum ‘n’ bass artist Etherwood is fresh off a new six-track release, which contains a graceful tune called “Away From It All.” Featuring a beautiful reoccurring piano melody and drifting vocals, this one instantly transports the listen to a still forest or a scenic vista. If the listener can fully submerge themselves in the sonic landscape Etherwood’s composed, it’s likely they’ll find themselves in a truly blissful state.

Speaking of six-track releases, Pierce Fulton, too, has released a new body of work. Hoarder’s Paradise made its full appearance on Potential Fun on June 14, featuring songs like “The Move.” This four-minute song is an introspective one, carrying with it an almost wistful theme as it ebbs and flows. Throughout the tune, piano melodies build from delicate to more forceful and are backed by a subtle but substantial beat. The journey-like qualities of “The Move” are completely entrancing.

Ultra Korea attendees guests have been given an excellent replacement for Martin Garrix‘ recent cancellation in Porter Robinson. The icon between hits like Language, “Shelter” with Madeon, and brand-new Said The Sky festival will be playing a double header at the event, keeping his Virtual Self slot as well as his new set at the main stage under his prime moniker. Garrix had been forced to back out of the event on account of an ankle injury acquired during a Vegas performance that needed surgery.

Porter’s surprise announcement is the latest in a flurry of news surrounding the artist. He recently confirmed to his fans that new music was under way, and also that he’d be opening his own festival to encourage earlier arrivals and music discovery. Second Sky takes place June 15 in Oakland.
