NEWS: “What an insane week” exclaims EDM whiz-kid Martin Garrix


Amsterdam, March 31st, 2014Martin Garrix, the groundbreaking 17 year old has added even more accolades to his already growing number of awards and accomplishments while attending the Miami Music Week.

His monster smash hit Animals reached the RIAA Platinum status in the US for 1 Million sales. He also became the youngest DJ ever to play the mainstage at Ultra Music Festival!

On top of that, he received three International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) for Best Electro / Progressive track for his single Animals, Best break-through DJ and Best break-through Artist.

Again, no DJ under 18 has accomplished that ever.

After his number 1 hit in the UK with Animals, his follow up single Wizard, a collaboration with Jay Hardway, entered the Official UK charts at #7 last Sunday.

Last but not least, he just won a prestigious Edison Award in his native country The Netherlands for Best Dance track.

Martin says: “This week was insane!! So unreal, still can’t believe it!”

Eelko van Kooten about Martin’s success story: “When we start working with Martin in 2012, Spinnin’ Records as his label and MusicAllStars as his management, he never released a record or had a professional dj carreer. Now, almost 2 years later he has international #1 hit records and is playing as dj on the biggest festivals and clubs around the world and is receiving many Awards for his work. We are extremely proud to work with Martin and celebrate the successes together.”
