Watch Martin Garrix and Third Party’s new music video for ‘Lions In The Wild’
EDM wunderkind Martin Garrix is amidst perhaps one of the busiest points of his career. He’s taken on various endeavors as of late, with more notable achievements including the launch of his own label STMPD RCRDS and his rumored hip-hop/pop project, Area21.
He also took on his first major headlining set at Ultra this year, premiering ten new tracks in the process which will likely be released on STMPD in the near future. One of the aforementioned IDs makes its official debut to the public: “Lions In The Wild.” He enlisted John Martin and Third Party to assist in the clips production, which begins on a dramatic note with sweeping orchestral sections before John Martin’s vocals kick in. The remainder of the clip swaps in big room faux-hardstyle kicks for the more airy offerings of “Swedish” commercial house popular in EDM’s early boom, maintaining an easily danceable drop for the main stage while employing more melodic elements for an emotive flair.
