The 21-year-old superstar Martin Garrix earns a spot on GQ’s “The Man Of Today” list

He’s hit #1 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 list two years in a row, started his own record label STMPD RCRDS, collaborated with some of the most influential names in music, taken on various side projects such as Area 21 and GRX, and participated in multiple philanthropy movements. With all of this success and global influence at just 21-years-old, Martin Garrix has just earned a spot on the international men’s culture magazine GQ‘s list of the world’s 30 most inspirational men. According to GQ, “The Man Of Today” list is made to recognize men of this magnitude:

“They’re athletes and actors, innovators and artists, politicians and philanthropists. They’re people who measure success based upon the values by which they live their lives; they’re multi-faceted individuals unafraid to express themselves through their talents; they’re trailblazers whose actions and impact on society have challenged and broadened the very nature of masculinity.”

In Garrix’s case, GQ felt that he deserved this spot as he is “driven by a passion for music, rather than the financial rewards that his career brings him…” They also added that he “established himself as one of the most ambitious DJs in the world when he set-up his own record label at just the age of 20.”
