17 And On Top

Were you aware that the animal at the top of the Beatport food chain is a 17 year old dude?Meet Martin Garrix.  His chart topping track Animals is not the only thing he’ll want to brag to all his buddies about, he is the youngest person ever to reach a number one position on Beatport.

One week after it was released by Spinnin Records, Animals reached prime position.  Not to take away from 16 year old Julian Jordan, who still holds the title for youngest person to collaboratively reach number one with his Sander Van Dooran hook up Kangaroo, but this young Netherlander is has really pumped out a hit.

Now Garrix is on the radar, he has been picked up by BBC Radio 1 as a resident DJ.  Listen here to his fierce one hour show, and delight in fellow Spinnin Record artists Dubvision, Vicetone, Firebeatz and Jay Hardway who are all top of the playlist.
