Here's why people are calling the young DJ an absolute force to be reckoned with.

A while back we wrote about Martin Garrix and were totally in awe about the fact that the young producer was already working with massive names despite being a relative newcomer. 

That was four months ago. 

Today, Martin Garrix is being called the number one social DJ and that's no coincidence. In all but one category, Martin absolutely destroys is competition, blowing veterans like Afrojack and Nicky Romero out of the water when it comes to social clout. 

The research conducted by DDMCA (Denis Doeland Management Consultancy and Advice) tells us everything we need to know.


When it comes to who gets the most social engagement, who gets the most likes, and whose fans actually respond to new music and social media prompts, none of Martin Garrix's competition even comes close.

At just 19 years old, Martin has seen the world, worked with massive names, and put out some great music. He can now tick 'become social heavyweight' off on his list of things to do. 

It just doesn't look like Martin Garrix's bright star is going to fizzle out any time soon.
