Martijn Garritsen, better known by his stage name Martin Garrix, is a Dutch DJ-producer who rocked the world with his hit EDM single, Animals. Lauded for his unique style, mesmerising stage presence, and entertaining music, Garrix has changed the world of Electronic music.

He has recently revealed that he has created a set especially for his ever-growing Indian fan base.

“I’m very excited to visit India. I can’t wait. I have worked on new sets for India. I think the audience will love it; just wait and see,” says Garrix.

The young DJ’s love for music started rather early. At the age of four, he started learning to play the guitar, and just a couple of years later, he showed interest in DJing.

“I have been looking up to DJ Tiesto since I was very young. In fact, he inspired me to become a DJ,” shares Garrix, adding that the success of Animals was "like a dream come true".

But does he ever fear not matching the popularity of the track? “You never know, we will see what the future has in store. I will keep doing what I love the most — making music,” he says.

Garrix, who often collaborates with other artistes, like in the case of Wizard (with Jay Hardway), Tremor (with Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike) and Turn up the speakers (with Afrojack) among others, is currently on working a track with Ed Sheeran. “It is coming out soon; I am very excited about the release,” he says.
