Listen to the new single from Martin Garrix’s rumored pop project, AREA21
Martin Garrix’s highly publicized split from Spinnin‘ has resulted in immense creative breathing room for the young producer. Garrix has taken the independence in stride, notably unleashing a huge array of new tracks in his Ultra set back in March. His freedom also catalyzed the creation of AREA21, a brand new pop project all but confirmed to belong to the new young Dutchman.
“Spaceships” was the project’s first release, which embraced the hip-hop side of pop with rumored collaborator Maejor. The project’s second single is “Girls,” which has arrived on Garrix’s own STMPD Records.
The track takes on a bubbly feel, with woodwind synth edits and laid-back guitar riffs accompanying overtly cheesy verses that breach familiar pop/rap territory: girls, parties, and wealth. It’s an intentionally radio-friendly cut, and easily Garrix’s most commercially-inclined, albeit low-brow, offering to date.
