Martijn Garritsen (born 14 May 1996), commonly known by his stage name Martin Garrix, is a Dutch DJ/producer signed to Spinnin' Records. He is best known for the track "Animals", which was a Top 10 hit in more than 10 countries; the song has also peaked to number 1 in Belgium, Ireland and the United Kingdom. His single "Wizard", produced with Jay Hardway, was also successful in numerous countries in 2014. Garrix's passion for music started at the age of 4 through learning to play guitar. By the age of 8 (in 2004) he had expressed interest in becoming a DJ after seeing DJ Tiesto playing at the Olympic games in Athens. Garritsen took particular inspiration from the track "Traffic", prompting him to download specialist software and enabling him to start composing. Garritsen currently attends the Herman Brood Academy, a production school in Utrecht.
