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.
