Martin Garrix pushes the boundaries between label and artist in new episode of ‘The Martin Garrix Show’
Garrix takes us to Sony, where the company’s team reflects on their first time meeting him. The Dutch producer showed up with 60 new tracks for them to hear, and that’s when they discovered the “creative hurricane” that Martin Garrix is. After signing him, the Sony team members talk about how Garrix showed up with “Dreamer” featuring Mike Yung pre-recorded and ready to go without going through any label approvals. He also didn’t get the label to coordinate any of the collaboration or recording sessions. They note that “Dreamer” really doesn’t fit as a club track or a pop hit, looking at their release schedule and priorities. But this is how Garrix challenges himself creatively and also challenges the label to branch out of their comfort zone.
In the second half of the video, viewers watch yet again as a sleep-deprived video-editing team finishes the third video of “Anima” for “Waiting for Tomorrow” past deadline. Garrix and his team stay up until 8 a.m. the day of his show, perfecting the light show and visuals, showcasing how much work goes into every single one of Garrix’s performances.
