At just 20, Martin Garrix has already won the “Best Electronic” awards at the 2015 MTV Europe Awards, and the “Best Guru” award at this year’s MTV Millenials Awards. His ear-worm dance track “Animals“, released when Garrix was just 17, hit double-platinum in 5 countries including the US, Canada and Belgium.

Garrix emerged as #3 on the DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs of 2015 Poll.

2014 was a huge year for Zedd. His EDM hit “Clarity (feat Foxes)” won him the “Best Dance Recording” at the Grammy Awards, and he didn’t stop there. The Russian-German, who just turned 27 a fortnight ago, released “True Colours” in 2015, which went on to win him “Top Dance/Electronic Album” at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards.  Here’s a link to the title-track “True Colours” remixed by Felguk.

Zedd is #22 on the DJ Mag Top 100 DJ’s of 2015 Poll.
