It feels like just yesterday that Martin Garrix took the stage of Ultra 2016 and unveiled his newest project that would soon become known as AREA21. A collaborative effort with his close friend and fellow songwriter Maejor, the AREA21 alias revealed a new side of Garrix by experimenting with a more hip-hop-centric sound blended with pop and EDM. Now, over five years later, the two have finally officially introduced themselves to the world with their highly anticipated album, ‘Greatest Hits Vol. 1.’
The story behind the AREA21 project is that two aliens (M and M) are traveling through the universe spreading good vibes and ultimately end up crash landing on Earth. The album documents their journey and experiences while they navigate through this new world that they have never seen.
People have waited eagerly since that March night in Miami. Now, after nine months filled with multiple successful single releases, the wait is finally over. AREA21 has landed here on Earth.
‘’I’ve never released this many songs before at the same time, so I’m nervous about it. But that nervousness gets overshadowed by excitement, adrenaline and passion. This project means so much to us both musically and conceptually. I’ve had some of the best moments of my life working on these songs and we can’t wait to finally share them with the world.’’ – Martin Garrix, Press Release
