“I’m a big fan of Martin’s music and his skills as a DJ and producer. The creative process flowed naturally from the start and I’m very happy with how the song turned out. There’s a reason why Martin is one of the hottest artists on the planet right now,” Tiësto says.
“The opportunity for me to work with my hero Tiësto was such an incredible experience. We really got to combine both of our visions on this track and the result is simply amazing. Couldn’t be more pleased with the end result,” Martin Garrix says.
Jeez, get a room you two. In all seriousness, these kinds of collaborations are fantastic, and offer fans crossover opportunities that only serves to expand the genre’s immersion. We’re excited to see what comes next from the dynamic duo.
