DID YOU KNOW?
If you have your mind set on becoming a DJ and record producer, then you probably know who Martin Garrix is. Tagged as the youngest person ever to hit the number one spot for Beatport's Top 100 chart, with his dance song 'Animals,' it's no wonder that he's such a talked about personality. But did you know that before rising to the top, Garrix was actually a ghost producer for someone else?
At a very young age, before becoming a DJ superstar, he ghost-produced a track that eventually became a hit in the music industry. He refused to say whose and what track, but when Spinnin' Records found out that he made it, he instantly got signed, thus kicking off his career. So, how does someone become a DJ at such age? As someone who started when he was only eight, Garrix said the most important thing is that you work hard. Spend as much time as you can creating and improving your music. And in an industry with a lot of competitors, you should develop your own style so you can stand out from the rest. The next most important thing is that you should know your tools. Whether you're starting out and using free music making programs or high-end DJ software, familiarize yourself with them and learn how you can make the kind of music you want to produce. On top of this, if you want to make it big in the industry, one thing you could do is try and reach out to stars for collaboration so you can spread your music. These are only some of the things you could do, but if you're determined enough, then just keep pursuing your craft until your music lands on clubs, parties, and top charts.
