Martin Garrix becomes youngest artist to top Beatport charts through a solo production, ‘Animals’
Few have ascended the global dance industry with more fresh-faced stamina than Martin Garrix. At just 17, the Dutch house breakout this week became the youngest artist to top the Beatport charts on his own; Julian Jordan topped the charts last year at age 16 through his collaboration, “Kangaroo,” with Sander van Doorn. His latest single “Animals,” released June 17 on Spinnin’ Records, hit the number one spot on Friday, adding a personal first chart-topper to his burgeoning discography. But having secured a notable first just six months into the year, the road ahead is looking no less animated. With the follow-up to his “Torrent” collaboration with Sidney Samson brewing as well as collaborative stints with Dillon Francis and young peer Julian Jordan, Garrix looks adamant on setting the precedent for young European talent to an all-time-high for the road ahead.
