Over the last couple of years, specially in 2017 and 2018, we saw a huge rise on his career. Released so many tracks with different genres, teamed up with artists all around the world, wining DJ Mag for 3 consecutive years, Martin Garrix is looking good, so good than we expected.
With all that he just released another amazing production with Mike Yung called Dreamer. The name says it all. Holding onto your dreams and never giving up as long as you have something to believe in, that’s what Dreamer is all about.
We saw Mainstage and Pop side of Garrix but this is something we never expected. But he deals with it. Dreamer is so emotional, melding pop sounds with R&B vocals and an almost blues-like attitude that is so incredibly powerful, stemming from Yung’s words dripping with emotion and decades of hard work.
After this huge milestone, this is what Mike Yung said.

Here’s a guy who has helped me through some of the darkest hours of my life @martingarrix Ive been busking for 40 years, and even though I was on America Got Talent, my life has not changed and actually only gotten harder as time has gone on. You can never break the age old law of “success is earned not given” What people don’t realize is that exposure on TV shows doesn’t translate to success or changing your life. It’s a quick moment in time. After I had gotten kicked off the show last summer, many people thought I had finally made it. I hadn’t. We had to raise a Kickstarter to keep things going, and even that wasn’t even enough. It was only enough to start the album process. I was still waking up everyday busking to support my family (and still am) as we faced eviction every month and tried to support Lydia’s hospital bills as she kept getting sicker and sicker. Then this guy came around and told me he wanted to help get my voice out to the world. He also helped me when nobody else could. There are things in life you cannnot explain. And that’s God. And I want to thank God for Martin and everything he’s done for me. I hope this finally shows record labels I still got what it takes for a debut album.
