Dutch EDM producer/DJ Martin Garrix stopped by the 92.3 AMP StubHub studios today to talk with Shoboy and Nina about what he’s got in store for fans in the coming months. Although his goal is to one day release an album, he’s perfectly content releasing single after single for the moment.
After being discovered back in 2012 at the age of 15 by legendary producer Tiesto, Garrix has been producing songs for himself as well as ghostwriting for numerous artists.
“I can release an album right now with all the unreleased music I have,” says Martin on the amount of songs he has completed. “But if I release an album I want it to be super-crazy. And it takes time. Right now it’s going super-well with the singles, so I’m definitely going to do a couple more singles, but I definitely want to release an album one day, which [would be] a collection of different sounding Martin Garrix songs.”

Getting into Martin’s upbringing and his introduction to music, we learned that his parents have shown him unwavering support, from guitar lessons as a child to dancing along in the club, a place he still has to be escorted into due to his young age.
“My parents have been supportive since day one, because they saw and they still see how much fun I’m having in the studio, making music, DJing. They’ve been super, super supportive. They still are. My father right now helps me a lot with financial stuff… he’s the guy who’s like ‘guys, this tour is too hard, give him some rest!'”
“They’re amazing and whenever they can, because they’ve got their own jobs… they join me. I’m going to bring my mom to Ultra Miami!”
And it’s a good thing he is because, at the young age of 20, he’s still not allowed in clubs to perform without someone escorting him into and out of the venue.
“It’s the story of my life in Vegas,” laughs Garrix. “I’m literally only allowed to be in the club when I perform. They start my intro, bring me with three security guards into the club. They clear the entire booth and surrounding tables of alcohol, there’s no alcohol allowed to be close to me.”
“Then I perform, and while my last song is playing they escort me out again. I’m not allowed to be in the club if I’m not playing. It’s crazy. In Vegas it’s so strict.”
