Back when Martin Garrix was just 17 years of age, Martin Garrix released what would become one of EDM's most popular songs of its time. “Animals” quickly became the soundtrack to the entire EDM/Big Room House movement which dominated music festivals and thousands of imitations.

After the release on Spinnin' Records, Garrix became the youngest producer to ever have a song reach the number one spot on the digital downloads store, Beatport. While many people thought Martin Garrix would become a one-hit-wonder, Martin Garrix used the success of “Animals” to help cement himself as one of the leading producer/DJs of our time.

Martin Garrix's “Animals” has been awarded platinum status in 9 different countries and currently has around 835 million views on YouTube.
