Like so many artists, Martin Garrix is keeping us updated during this time of social distancing via live stream.
The superstar DJ/producer, real name Martijn Garritsen, recently spoke with Bryant and his fans via Zoom to fill them in on upcoming releases, the fate of future shows, side projects and more. As always, Garrix has been keeping remarkably busy with new music releases, whether its for his main project, GRX, YTRAM, AREA21 or beyond.
There’s a lot to digest here, but thankfully Martin Garrix Hub has everything organized in the post below. The fan site highlights the following:
- New GRX song is coming this Friday (Florian Picasso & GRX – Restart Your Heart)
- Martijn is releasing his first YTRAM song very soon
- The Euro song was supposed to get released on 21st April but because the tournament got postponed, the song also got postponed by another year
- AREA21 has struck a massive deal and Garrix confirmed a new album
- NO RAI SHOWS THIS YEAR!
- He’s planning to record another rooftop set
- He’s still working on perfecting the Higher Ground drop
- Live Tonight feat. Ryan Tedder (Back In Time) is still on hold
- He played 2 new ideas on guitar
That should pretty much cover everything… for now. Stay tuned for more info.

🚨 BREAKING! 🚨 Martijn did a Zoom call with @bryant this morning and spoke to a bunch of lucky fans. He also revealed a lot of exclusive news during this special call and here's a summary of it. ⠀ 1) New GRX song is coming this Friday (Florian Picasso & GRX – Restart Your Heart) ⠀ 2) Martijn is releasing his first YTRAM song very soon ⠀ 3) The Euro song was supposed to get released on 21st April but because the tournament got postponed, the song also got postponed by another year. Now Martijn is in talks with UEFA committee again to still release the song this year and also use it for the tournament. He gave a small hint about that project, he recorded that song is France a week after his ankle accident. When he was sitting beside that artist, he couldn't believe it and talked about he pinched himself the whole time. ⠀ 4) AREA21 has struck a massive deal. They have signed contracts and stuff (not revealed with whom) and all that is left now is releasing music. He confirmed that AREA21 album is coming and it will feature a lot of new style of songs which we wouldn't expect from this alias. ⠀ 5) NO RAI SHOWS THIS YEAR! A fan asked him if he's doing ADE RAI shows this year and he said no. The way he talked about it, it seemed pretty clear that he is not planning to do a RAI show at all this year. He said he misses having fun during ADE and crashing multiple parties and that's what he's gonna do this year. He might do a small intimate low capacity show at a special venue. ⠀ 6) He's planning to record another rooftop set because he couldn't play a lot of original songs. Might also include a lot of YTRAM type music. ⠀ 7) He's still working on perfecting the Higher Ground drop. ⠀ 8) The main reason why Live Tonight feat. Ryan Tedder (Back In Time) is still on hold is because he accidentally copied that melody from Yottabyte. Still planning on releasing that song. ⠀ 9) He played 2 new ideas on guitar.
