The young Dutch prodigy, one of Ibiza’s most sought after big room stars, has seen a sell-out weekly residency in a takeover of Ushuaïa Ibiza’s legendary poolside stage. Martin Garrix, with his unbeatable energy, immense dedication to his craft and limitless talent, has been sending his global fanbase crazy with his pounding electronic sound. Amping things up with a crew of close friend, big name, DJs, this week on our visit Michael Amani, Justin Mylo, Bolier, AC Slater and Vintage Culture formed a vibrant cluster to hot things up.

On our arrival, past the snaking queues leading all the way up the street, we were surprised to see commotion this big, even with our entry into Ushuaïa Ibiza a little later into the day. Through the tall, white-brick walls, we were hit with a swarming crowd all fully well into party mode. Keen to support rising talent, Garrix had brought through Vintage Culture as the final act before his grand onset. The 20-year-old Brazilian producer is fiercely leading the way for young talent, sending out his dancefloor tested sound of dramatic electro build ups and breaks. Mixing chart-topping tracks, ‘Like a G6’, ‘Heads Will Roll’ and ‘How Deep Is Your Love’, all the favourites were cleverly blended with cutting, up-tempo rhythms that had the crowd in the palm of his hand – singing, dancing and fully letting go.

As planes flew overhead in dramatic moments, the sun was fast dipping, marking time for the young King’s arrival. The lights dimmed, the screams got louder and before we knew it all hands threw up in unison as Martin Garrix stepped out, the siren sounds of his hit-track ‘Virus’ trumpeting everyone into a frenzy. Making full use of Ushuaïa Ibiza’s fully decked out system, the volume maxed out and a spectacular light show switched on, bathing the crowd in a kaleidoscope of luminescent green lights. Keeping the beats fast and energy high, he dished out plenty of his classics, unsurprisingly ‘Animals’ raised some serious noise. Demonstrating incredible flair and understanding of music, his selection skills had the crowd jumping with quick transitions, big drops and moving vocal tracks.

With a surprise guest appearance from David Guetta on stage, the party had officially been blessed by the dance music hero, sealing our approval as well of a rocking Thursday night. For an EDM extravaganza set to get you pumping, this is one fiesta reserved for the die-hard lovers of all things electronic. With only a few more shows left of the summer, be quick to catch this one – you won’t want to miss it!
