The Martin Garrix Show gives viewers the backstory of ‘Dreamer,’ Garrix’s most unexpected collaboration to date
The Martin Garrix Show brings New York City subway singer Mike Yung to the forefront in the newest episode, where viewers watch how the collaboration “Dreamer” came to be. The song itself is a diversion from what fans have come to expect from the Dutch producer, thanks to Yung’s soulful vocals and the limited electronic elements of the release. Yung takes viewers through his years of singing on the subway and explains how he got discovered by both America and Garrix himself through a viral YouTube video.
The duo met first in New York after Garrix reached out to him online, and Yung’s kids urged their dad to take the meeting even though the subway singer did not know who he was. Yung then traveled to Amsterdam, where the duo wrote five songs on a boat ride on the canal. Garrix and Yung also recently performed “Dreamer” live on Good Morning America, where Garrix played guitar and Yung sang with a gospel choir in the back. This is a rare episode where the viewer gets to watch a track come to life from start to finish.
