Martin Garrix releases his latest collaboration with Matisse & Sadko titled “Forever”.
The video for Garrix’s latest single “Forever” portrays a young man driving a motorcycle cross country in search for something. Maybe that something is found on the map or perhaps it exists in the music for listeners to find. The video was directed, shot, and edited by Damian Karsznia. The production assistants were Joris Hoevenberg and Mees Roozen. The biker in the video is Sjak van Hoof. According to Sijak on FB: “Wow, this may be the coolest job I’ve ever done, I can say that. Thanks a million Damian Karsznia, Joris Hoevenberg, Mees Roozen and Team Martin Garrix”. This video was shot in beautiful Scotland.
The glorious breakdowns are driven by commanding organ chords and decked out with melancholy guitar licks that recall sorrowful ‘80s pop-rock. The build-up is kept minimal before the mighty lead riff is unleashed, a resplendent and triumphant trancey refrain that’s super-polished. Gorgeous key changes meet us in the second break with a bigger snare build creating a tense sense of anticipation. Only a few elements are needed to create a full sound, such is this team’s production prowess and keen sense of arrangement. Less is more when you use the best ingredients and blend them perfectly.
It’s the fourth occasion that Matisse & Sadko have collaborated with Garrix.
Following the wild success of Break Through The Silence, Dragon and Together, they have also crafted dancefloor gold alongside Steve Angello. With remixes for Afrojack, millions of streams online and sets at Tomorrowland, Omnia Las Vegas and Usuhuïa to name but a few, they are rapidly rising through the ranks of the dance music scene.
It’s a big month for Martin Garrix, with two sold out shows during ADE at the gargantuan Amsterdam RAI and the following week at London’s legendary O2 Academy Brixton.
