post of the year. done deal.SPEECHLESS. Undoubtedly the BEST set at Coachella 2014.
The beautifully composed intro leading into the best dance track in decades "ANIMALS" LITERALLY sent magic into my spine. When he COMPLETELY surprised us with the Botnek remix of the track, I honestly could not breathe. Martin then followed this masterpiece with his new monster of a track, a collaboration with Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike. Once the drop for "Tremor" hit, EVERYONE knew the party was about to begin. Young Garrix proceeded by skillfully mixing into what seemed to be a remix of The xx's "Intro" mashed with Penduluum's "The Island." To be 100% honest I was NOT expecting that and I have been following Martin's sets for a long time. The young 17 year old TRULY created the strongest party at Coachella by mixing Nirvana, Macklemore, Kid Cudi, Blur, Bruno Mars with the INFECTIOUS and UNIQUE sounds he has carefully curated. My personal highlight of the beautiful set was when he threw in Lil Jon's DJ tool for "Put Your Fucking Hands Up" with his BRAND NEW collaboration with DILLON FRANCIS. I put my fucking hands up SO DAMN HIGH I gave Jesus a high five and came back from heaven to continue the dance party. EVERYONE around me at the Sahara had the BIGGEST grin on their face leaving NO DOUBT in my mind that Martin Garrix will be the future of dance music.
Martin Garrix (and Scooter Braun), THANK YOU FOR THE BEST NIGHT OF MY ENTIRE LIFE. I WILL NEVER FORGET THIS.
