Garrix – the Dutch wunderkind behind 2013’s runaway hit Animals – was announced as one of BBC Radio 1’s new roster of resident DJs, alongside Tiesto, Bromance founder Brodinski and trance name Simon Patterson. On Thursday night, London time, Garrix stepped up for his first Radio 1 show and over one hour, the 17-year-old worked through a selection of the tracks he’s been enjoying. Radio 1 is a big influential station for dance music around the world.
“Radio 1 are big supporters of my track Animals and are taste makers in the world when it comes to dance music on the radio,” he said when the residency was first announced. “I’m excited to be a part of that.”
Unsurpisingly, Garrix’s label, Spinnin Records, features heavily on the tracklist, with handiwork from his label mates Firebeatz, Jay Hardway, Dubvision and Vicetone all making it in. But the first half of the proceedings wasn’t as main stage-ready as you might expect: before he picked up the pace and got stuck into his own material, Garrix also played less-frenetic tracks from Disclosure, UK singer Fox Stevenson and his Sander van Doorn and DVBBS collaboration Gold Skies. Animals, however, was absent the whole hour through.
EDM superstar Hardwell has had a massive year so far, holding top club residencies & touring with the world’s best festivals. Now, he has decided to embark on his biggest world tour to date ‘I Am Hardwell.’
He streamed his live set on his own ‘Hardwell on Air’ radio show, just so we can see exactly what we are missing out on.
The French electro boy wonder Madeon is on the roll! Having premiered his new track “The City” on Annie Mac’s Radio Show. It is assumed that this nu-disco-influenced tune will be put to further attention to the undeniable talent of the 18 year old BEAT MASTER as it carries alot of potential to conquer radio stations around the world in a few months!
