MARTIN GARRIX RELEASES LONG AWAITED COLLABORATION ‘DRAGON’ WITH FRIENDS MATTISE & SADKO
ANNOUNCES RELEASE DATE OF SECOND COLLABORATION ‘BREAK THROUGH THE SILENCE (FEAT. PETE WILDE)’ – JULY 13TH
Martin Garrix, electronic dance music’s youngest and fastest rising superstar has officially released his highly anticipated collaboration ‘Dragon’ with friends and talented DJ/Producer duo Matisse & Sadko.
After spending time with Matisse & Sadko in 2014, Martin became close friends with them and when they realized their synergy was so great, they decided to work in the studio together. These studio sessions resulted in two incredible records to be released one week after another on Beatport and on YouTube as a two part music video, starting with the release of “Dragon” today. With “Dragon”, the three youngsters deliver a progressive masterpiece that breaths fire with amazing string sections, infectious melodic chords and monumental synth stacks. Ever since “Animals”, Garrix has been reinventing himself and dropped hit after hit, all supported by the biggest names in the industry and now it’s “Dragon” that has been tipped to become one of the bigger main stage tracks over the summer festival season.
I have been using “Dragon” as the main opening track at my live shows for almost a year now, it is definitely one of my favorite tracks to play and I’m so happy to finally release it now together with my buddies Matisse & Sadko. Martin says.
Both music videos were directed by buzz worthy Los Angeles based director Laban. Told in two parts, the videos tell the cyclical story of heartbreak, revenge, and the consequences that follow.
“It’s a story about a badass breakdancing roller girl who goes on a bender after catching her boyfriend cheating which leads to violent outbursts, law breaking and partying with some cool kids.” says Laban.
“This video ends with a cliffhanger and I’m happy to say the story will continue in the official video for Martin Garrix and Matisse & Sadko’s next release ‘Break Through The Silence’ [July 13th]… I wanted there to be consequences to the main characters actions, not just glorifying bad behavior. So when we get to “Break Through The Silence,” which continues the adventures and misadventures of our flawed protagonist. We shot these videos, which are basically one short film, in two jammed packed nights and had a lot of fun making ’em.”
Be on the look out for ‘Break Through The Silence,’ and Part Two of this epic story on July 13th.
Garrix’s brand new collaboration “Dragon” is officially out now on Spinnin Records.
