In a recent interview with Mid Day News, Martin Garrix revealed his boredom with global dance phenomenon, “Animals.” It’s reassuring to know we’re not alone, as it’s hard for even the most cutting remixes to breath life into this overplayed track.
Check out what he had to say below:
I’m bored of playing it out. But I still have to play it because people come to my shows because of that track. I got so many tracks besides Animals and of course, every DJ gets tired of playing his own tracks if he plays it so much. Animals was just another club song that I made when I was 15. It was pure plain experimentation.”
I used to play it live on my sets and fans would walk up to me and say, ‘what’s the weird click-ey song?’ I would be like “can’t tell” just to mess with their heads. Then, all of a sudden, it was all over the Internet. I made Animals as a club record to get it played at the clubs and festivals and then suddenly, when I released it, the radio started playing it. They started using it in commercials on TV or dancing programmes. They played it when I went to a soccer match for 70,000 people in my hometown. Never in my wildest dreams did I have any clue that it would make a superstar out of me.
The young producer is sitting on a slew of new material that’s waiting to be released, so it makes perfect sense he wants to share other records with his fans. With such a growing demand and similarly taxing tour schedule, it’s important for Martin Garrix to keep in mind his own well being. It seems that keeping the company of industry heavyweights such as Tiësto and David Guetta has helped him formulate a healthy balance in an otherwise hectic schedule.
One of them had a burnout, after which they told me, ‘Take your rest, please; don’t do every show that’s possible. Don’t think only about your fans but also about yourself and your condition, because in the end, you’re the one who must play every show, and if you’re sick in hospital you will have to cancel it, anyway.’
Tell us, are you tired of “Animals” as well? Sound off below.
