Martin Garrix and Bonn cement a trilogy of collaborations with ‘Home’
In three separate instances since July of last year, Martin Garrix and Bonn have come together for a pairing that is not-so-subtly imbuing as one of the most authentic producer/vocalist combinations in modern dance music.
After crowd-testing the production during his lone Tomorrowland appearance of 2019 at his STMPD Records stage, Garrix has expediently readied his fifth original of the year, as he relinquishes “Home.” The release arrives under a month prior to “These Are the Times,” which the young gun curated as part of his AXE partnership, and serves as Garrix and Bonn’s third official union.
“Home,” while distinctly inspiriting in its own manner, mildly deviates from the lighthearted resolve that “High On Life” and “No Sleep” exude. Garrix promptly advertises his acoustic versatility as Bonn demonstrates for a third consecutive mark that his vocals could not be more suitable atop Garrix’s globally recognizable production. As directly embodied within the lyrics “Back to my roots / Yeah, it’s been so long,” the 23 year old evokes mementos of his masterful electro-house blend from releases such as “Oops” and “Forbidden Voices.”
