Martin Garrix and Zedd have a lot in common. They both came up as dance music prodigies in the 2010s and successfully crossed over into the pop world. It's a wonder they haven't collaborated until now -- but such a superduo debut may be on the horizon as soon as late March.

Garrix spoke to south Florida dance station Revolution 93.5 ahead of his performance at Daer nighclub in Hollywood and confided that the long-time friends have been talking about working together for about seven years.

"We’ve sent all these ideas back and forth," he says in a clip of the interview shared to Instagram, "but then when we’re together we always end up just partying or chilling or exploring the city that we’re in. I just sent him an idea, I think 4 weeks ago. It’s a crazy, very weird different chord progression, but because it's so weird and different, he was like 'man, I love this, send me this.'"

Garrix obliged, and now it's just a matter of time before we hear the results.

"It's gonna be like ping-pong with the idea until we have a version that’s like 'okay, let’s play it at Tomorrowland or Ultra.'"

If it comes soon, the collaboration could be Garrix's first release of 2020. Zedd started his year with a remix package for his Kehlani collab "Good Thing" but has yet to release any originals. Both artists are scheduled to play Ultra Music Fetival in Miami, March 20 to 22.
