Martin Garrix’s unescapable breakthrough hit “Animals” continues to set records for the young producer. As of writing, “Animals” has climbed to the #32 spot on Top 40 radio, besting Darude’s 2001 hit “Sandstorm.” This news comes following Garrix becoming the youngest artist to ever hit Beatport #1 on a solo production, as well as peaking at#1 in the UK back in November. The highest charting purely instrumental track since Robert Miles’ track “Children,” Garrix’s gold-selling mega-hit is destined to continue its ascent up the Top 40 charts.
Ironically enough, Martin was born in the same year that “Children” took the #17 spot — 1996.
With recent backing by Scooter Braun, Garrix is riding the wave of “Animals” success with his follow-up “Wizard” and an upcoming North American tour. His career already in full bloom, the prodigy is already looking to the future, setting his sights on making even bigger waves in 2014.
