Dutch EDM producer/DJ Martin Garrix already had an enormous hit with his internationally chart-topping single "Animals" by the time his debut EP, Gold Skies, dropped in the summer of 2014. Still only 18 years old at the time of this release, Garrix struck out with multiple singles throughout 2012 before dropping "Animals" in 2013 to great acclaim and following it with second huge hit "Wizard." Though Gold Skies only has five tracks, all five were in fact released as separate singles, many charting in various countries. Garrix is joined by various guests on this brief set of amped-up club bangers, including vocalist Aleesia and co-producers like Jay Hardway, Dimitri Vegas, and Sander Van Doorn.
