Sander van Doorn, Martin Garrix, DVBBS – Gold Skies
Following the release of electric, collaborative club single ‘Tremor’ alongside fellow dance music heavyweights Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike in June, Martin Garrix is back with his latest collaborative UK release, ‘Gold Skies’. Co-produced alongside esteemed contemporaries Sander van Doorn and Canadian duo DVBBS, who recently joined forces with Tinie Tempah to produce the incredible ‘Tsunami (Jump)’, it’s a track that stretches the trio’s combined compositional skills to the fullest.
Centered around a luscious, strung-out vocal from talented up-and-comer Aleesia, ‘Gold Skies’ builds with soft, hazy melodies that lend a mystical, enchanting quality to the track’s opening. As expertly crafted synth lines and club-ready bass begin to make their mark, the manner in which all four producers continue to harmonize ideas throughout is a testament to the sheer depth of talent that each possesses. Certainly not typical of Garrix’s previous works in particular, ‘Gold Skies’ represents a wonderfully innovative, fully absorbing new collaborative record.
Already heavily backed by BBC Radio 1 tastemakers Pete Tong, Zane Lowe and Danny Howard and exclusively premiered online by leading music title ‘Rolling Stone’, ‘Gold Skies’ thus feels all set to deliver as one of the summer’s biggest seasonal anthems.
