The new wave of young and successful EDM producers is led by just a handful of pioneers and Martin Garrix can certainly be counted as one of them.
The 17 years old prodigy is rightly recongised as one of the most talented producers out there at the moment, with recognition coming from all over including in DJ Mag's recent top 100 DJ poll. Signed by one of the biggest dance labels in the world, Spinnin’ Records, and with the incredible success from his smash solo release Animals it is not surprising how the announcment of his appearance at Control Leeds next month has been receieved.
Released back in May 2013, Animals was argubaly the biggest EDM track of the year, reaching the #1 position in the Beatport main chart immediatey and staying there for a considerable stretch of time, making the young Netherlands native the youngest person ever to reach the #1 spot on Beatport.
