Ever since he busted onto the scene, Martin Garrix has dominated the festival market. Whether it be with his own headlining set or someone else’s, Martin Garrix songs are gonna get dropped. No doubt he’s got some kind of secret plan for world domination, and we at Billboard Dance would let him at it. At least you know it would sound good.
But in the interest of sharing the spotlight, we’ve scoured the internet in search of the best versions of Garrix from other producers. Turns out people love to trap out a Garrix tune, but we also found some delicious future house, electro, chill vibes, whatever. Not everyone can be the main stage’s crown prince, but with the right remix, they can come close enough.
“Animals” – Victor Niglio & Martin Garrix
This official remix out on Garrix’ original home of Spinnin’ Records takes the classic breakout hit and slams it with a double cup until it no longer stands straight. We imagine this is best heard in a topless candy-painted Cadillac sitting on 24s with its left side up in the air crawling at a speed of 25 mph.
“Break Through the Silence” – T-Mass & LZRD
A trap beat looks good on this collab with Matisse & Sadko as well, but this remix from T-Mass and LZRD is a lot more uplifting and energetic. It’s not so much on lean as it’s wishing someone would.
“Forbidden Voices” – The Bravos
The original from Garrix is super adorable, but it almost becomes sexy when The Bravos slow it down and turn it out. It’s like the puppy love sound grew up and it lookin’ a little too fine, lately.
“Don’t Look Down” – Prince Fox
When Prince Fox reached 25,000 likes on Facebook a year ago, he gave his fans this hyper house remix of Garrix’ big hit featuring Usher. Dare we say, it takes the beat to even greater heights?
“Wizard” – Tchami
French funk master Tchami got his hands on this original featuring vocals from Jay Hardaway and took it to a deeper, darker, more soulful place. This big house anthem just became an after-hour favorite.
“OOPS” – Lystéry
Garrix proved he can work any genre on this lil ditty. The 8-bit beat was a certified jam, and this lesser-known remix turns the fun-o-meter way up to bonus levels.
“The Only Way Is Up” – Boehm
A little tropical flavor never hurt anyone. Pass the sun tan lotion, sip some spiked coconut, and let the sexy sax soothe you into the sunset. Tiesto and Garrix should get this jazzy next time.
