Martin Garrix Featured In War Child PSA for COVID-19 Relief [WATCH]

Martin Garrix appears in a new PSA for War Child.

The organization supports and empowers the most vulnerable communities, focusing on children and their families. War Child is especially important at this time, as COVID-19 represents a grave threat to children, women and families who are already recovering from the shock of war and conflict.

“Children in war zones are often displaced from home, separated from their families, struggling to overcome their experiences,” Garrix explains in the video below.

Troian Bellisario, Elisabeth Moss, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah McLachlan and more top actors, musicians and athletes appear alongside War Child’s frontline.

Martin Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS Shows Off Newly Renovated Studio

These days, you don’t need a professional studio to make something professional sounding. With the proliferation of many different DAWs, available synth plug-ins, and so many sample services like Splice and Cymatics, anyone can sound like a professional producer.

That being said, a professional studio certainly doesn’t hurt.

Martin Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS, headquartered in Amsterdam, is a professional studio that looks absolutely amazing. The splash page for the studio’s website calls it “Amsterdam’s most advanced/largest recording studio” — while we can’t confirm that, we’ll certainly take their word for it.

The studio was bought by Garrix three years ago and has been undergoing renovations since, until they were finally ready to unveil it last week.

Three brand new studios were realized in addition to the renovation of the five existing studios. During the renovation, each space was given its own style in appearance and equipment. The studios are designed as a perfect mix between traditional quality and standards and today’s production workflows. The Mix Stage, a separate studio for cinema mixing, has also received a complete upgrade. This resulted in the studio receiving the Dolby Atmos Premier Studio certification, Dolby’s highest certification of a dubbing stage’s technical excellence.

Martin Garrix: ‘’I’m so incredibly proud of what we have managed to accomplish with the studios. It’s one of my favorite places to be, since the atmosphere is like nowhere else. The team always works tirelessly to make everyone feel at home and make sure they get the best possible result. I’m super happy with the outcome of the renovation and am looking forward to record lots of music here.’’

The press release announcing the studio’s renovation makes note of COVID-19, saying, “At the moment, all necessary COVID-19 measures have been taken inside the building, to ensure that the creativity can continue in a safe way. The studios are big enough to keep 1.5 meters distance from each other, only a limited number of people can be present in the studio complex, all equipment is sanitized continuously and no lunch is being served by the studios at the moment.”

You can see all of the specs of each studio with photos and more via the studio’s official website here.

Kaskade Teams Up With Chemical Surf For New Tech House Banger “Pow Pow Pow”

You would be hard pressed to find another DJ who’s been busier during the COVID-19 pandemic than Kaskade. He’s been releasing a steady stream of music and has been one of the most active artists in terms of live streams. Now, the legendary producer is back with another new track “Pow Pow Pow.” Always keen on new talent, this time Kaskade enlists upcoming Brazilian production duo Chemical Surf for this high energy tech-house banger. Chemical Surf recently caught Martin Garrix’s ear, as they’ve been releasing on Garrix’s STMPD label.

“Pow Pow Pow” definitely highlights that Brazilian bass sound that’s become popular over the years. There’s booming, almost trap-like horns in the song’s intro, from there it’s pure tech-house bliss, with a pulsating bassline and the quirky computer vocal saying “Turn that bass like pow pow pow.” The second drop hits even harder as the bass just takes on another level. “Pow Pow Pow” is one of those tracks that’s utterly danceable and just gets you grooving. Here’s what Chemical Surf had to say about working with Kaskade.

“We produced the first version of this song in 2017, with ​Hugo’s vocals, but we were not completely satisfied with the instrumental part of it so we never released it. With plenty of time to work in the studio due to the quarantine, we decided to modernize the song with a new drop. We sent the new version to Kaskade, who liked it a lot. So it made sense for him to work on ‘Pow Pow Pow’ ​along with us. This collaboration has made the track perfect” – Chemical Surf

Listen to the latest from Kaskade & Chemical Surf “Pow Pow Pow” out now on Arkade.

Brazil’s Pontifexx & Düncan release “Rhythm In Me” On Martin Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS

Brazilian DJ’s/producers as well as long time friends, Pontifexx and Düncan, have teamed up for a brand new single “Rhythm In Me” on Martin Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS. This is the second record of Pontifexx at the label, and the first for Düncan, who joins the select group of few Brazilian producers to have a single released by Martin Garrix’s record label.

“Rhythm In Me” features the vocals of Cammie and 2Strange, providing an excellent harmony between the female and male vocals. With a slower BPM, mysterious elements on the break to culminate in an interesting build-up and with a striking rhythm, the record promises to please as many electronic music fans as other audiences. Here’s what Düncan had to say about it:

“This track was born in 2017, when I decided to call several producers to my newly built studio. On one of the days, Pontifexx came and brought a vocal to work with. After making several different versions, the first draft came up. To release on STMPD has always been a dream of mine. I have been to many Garrix shows and I have always said that he is one of my greatest inspirations.” – Düncan

Whether you’re a fan of electronic music or not, “Rhythm In Me” arrives to occupy the space of the new favorite song of the moment. Listen below!

Martin Garrix Drops New Song With John Martin, “Higher Ground,” On His 24th Birthday

Today, on his birthday, Martin Garrix treats his fans to the release of a brand-new track “Higher Ground” ft. John Martin. The track sees the pair reuniting after they previously worked with on “Now That I’ve Found You” together.

John Martin’s bright vocals perfectly complement the overall uplifting sound of the track, proving that the two are still a successful combination. No stranger to collaborations, John Martin’s voice also gained worldwide recognition after being featured on tracks such as “Don’t You Worry Child” and “Save The World” with Swedish House Mafia.

“Higher Ground” illustrates the story of going through hard times but finding your way back up and eventually feeling happy and alive again. The lyrics are fitting for the time and place the world is in right now, providing words of hope and optimism.

The track was teased for the first time during Garrix’s livestream from his rooftop. The release is accompanied by an official music video which was made with the help of fans from all over the world.

Dubvision Drop Addictive New Single “Take My Mind”

Are you ready to go dark and deep? Who knew that progressive house titans DubVision would be the ones to take us there, but that’s exactly what their new single “Take My Mind” does. “Take My Mind” is a sultry house tune with an affecting vocal hook and some dark, rave-y synths during the drop. The track actually got its world debut on Martin Garrix’s “Live on Dutch Waters” boat set last week. We all know the STMPD Records head honcho went all out for that one.

The track opens with the male vocal set against some piano house notes. There’s not really a buildup, just a really cool effect before the synths and the beat combine during the drop to transport the listener to a dark warehouse rave. The track elements go even harder the second time around and there’s an epic synth breakdown before the final drop. Just close your eyes and bounce to this one, in your room, of course.

Listen to the latest from DubVision “Take My Mind” out now on STMPD. Check out their home live set from the recent STMPD RCRDS virtual festival as well.

Rewatch Martin Garrix’s Epic One Hour Set From The Waters Of The Netherlands

Yesterday, Martin Garrix went live for an hour as he made his way along the Dutch waters playing a stellar set. Without the tens of thousands of fans at a stage and without the flashing lights and lasers, the set felt a bit more peaceful and vibey.

He played most of his biggest hits, plus remixes of them and new IDs from STMPD RCRDS artists, from the likes of DubVision and Matisse & Sadko. If you can listen to this full set and not manage a smile or some relaxed muscles the whole time, I’m not sure what to say to you.

Check out the full set below!

Martin Garrix Is Streaming Incredible Set On A Speed Boat

The newest live set from Martin Garrix is streaming on Dutch waters from the back of a speedboat!

Though he’s not the first to do so — Oliver Heldens streamed from a boat for Digital Mirage — it appears from previews that Garrix will have a hefty entourage following him and playing live for a crowd, much like the drive in rave we saw in Denmark last week.

Check out the live set below!

Martin Garrix Teases “Live On Dutch Waters” Performance Coming Next Week

Martin Garrix looks forward to bringing fans a DJ set unlike anything else they’ve seen or heard over quarantine with a forthcoming performance from the waterways.

Although we weren’t expecting our festival season to happen online, the DJ/producer jumps at the opportunity to get creative with his presentation, while keeping social distancing a top priority.

On May 5th, Garrix will share the world premiere of his hour-long special. With captivating views from the air and the water, this 4K UHD recording is sure to impress visually. And with plenty of STMPD RCRDS IDs locked and loaded, the music will undoubtedly make a statement.

Garrix recently shared, “after this crazy time we’ll come back stronger than ever!! we’re in this together.” Nothing brings us together like music.

Watch below and cue “I’m On A Boat.”

Martin Garrix Goes Live For Kingsday Atop The A’DAM Tower In Amsterdam

Today is Koningsdag or King’s Day/Kingsday, a national holiday in the Netherlands celebrated on April 27. The date marks the birth of King Willem-Alexander, the reigning King of the Netherlands, in 1967. In celebration of the day, Martin Garrix performed a special 20 min liveset from the top of the A’DAM Tower here in Amsterdam together with Radio 538.

The heavily condensed set contained many fan favorites like “Animals,” “Scared To Be Lonely,” “In The Name Of Love,” and more. Following the full hour-long live set from his rooftop in Amsterdam two weeks ago, we’re definitely loving all these new sets to enjoy from home.

Watch below!

Scared to be lonely – Martin Garrix lyrics

Lyrics Martin Garrix – Scared to be lonely

It was great at the very start
Hands on each other
Couldn’t stand to be far apart
Closer the better.(scared to be lonely)

Now we’re picking fights and slamming doors
Magnifying all our flaws
And I wonder why, wonder what for
Why we keep coming back for more.

Is it just our bodies? Are we both losing our minds?
Is the only reason you’re holding me tonight
‘Cause we’re scared to be lonely?
Do we need somebody just to feel like we’re alright?
Is the only reason you’re holding me tonight
‘Cause we’re scared to be lonelyyy?

Too much time, losing track of us
Where was the real?
Undefined, spiraling out of touch
Forgot how it feels.

All the fucked up fights and slamming doors
Magnifying all our flaws
And I wonder why, wonder what for
It’s like we keep coming back for more.

Is it just our bodies? Are we both losing our minds?
Is the only reason you’re holding me tonight
‘Cause we’re scared to be lonely?
Do we need somebody just to feel like we’re alright?
Is the only reason you’re holding me tonight
‘Cause we’re scared to be lonelyyy?

Scared to be lonelyyy.

Even when we know it’s wrong
Been somebody better for us all along
Tell me, how can we keep holding on?
Holding on tonight ’cause we’re scared to be lonely
Even when we know it’s wrong
Been somebody better for us all along
Tell me, how can we keep holding on?
Holding on tonight ’cause we’re scared to be lonelyyy.

Is it just our bodies? Are we both losing our minds?
Is the only reason you’re holding me tonight
‘Cause we’re scared to be lonelyyy?

Scared to be lonelyyy
Scared to be lonelyyy
Scared to be lonelyyy
Eh, ehhh, scared to be lonelyyy.
Martin Garrix lyrics
