Hi there, I’m Martijn Garritsen also known as Martin Garrix, DJ and producer from the Netherlands. I started making music quite early. I saw Tiesto playing at the Olympics in 2004 and from that moment on I knew I wanted to be a DJ and producer. That’s how I started! Couple of years ago I got picked up by Spinnin Records and we started working together from that point and we started creating a profile behind Martin Garrix.

How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
I looked for a program that is easy to use for productions and gives fast results when making tracks. I tried to switch to logic a few times but it’s just not my thing. If I have an idea I want to be able to work it out really fast so I can decide if it’s worth finishing. Besides that FL Studio has some really good plugins itself which I use a lot.
Tell us about your production environment & toys?
I (used to) work in my bedroom – so I usually wear headphones when I work on my tracks late at night. On daytime I work with my KRK Rokit 6 speakers, very minimalistic but it works for me! EDITORS NOTE: Martin can regularly be seen on his laptop making music wherever he is.
