It felt like Martin Garrix became a superstar overnight with “Animals.” That track’s staccato Dutch house melody rang boldly from every main stage at every major festival around the world. Three years later, and the now 20-year-old producer and DJ is still banging out the hits, but he’s not afraid to switch up the style.
“In The Name Of Love” featuring the familiar and unique vocal stylings of Bebe Rexha, is a far cry from the hard-hitting, stomp-ready beat of his breakthrough. A good half of the song has no drums at all. A combination of piano, bass, and guitar strums provide percussion throughout demure verses, and when the chorus kicks in, Garrix gives it his best future house vibes.
It’s a charming track, as delicate as it is clean. It’s Garrix sharing his softer side. Listen for yourself.
