Martin Garrix has collaborated with his friend Julian Jordan and the British rapper Tinie Tempah to release “Diamonds,” his first festival song after almost a year. While experimenting with many new sounds, last year, Garrix reassured his fans that he was actually working on festival music and that he was waiting to come back on stage to release them. However, after presenting the preview of “Diamonds” at his mix at Electric Love (which we have talked about here), the song sparked a great stir on social media. It has immediately become one of the most waited IDs.
‘While working on ‘Diamonds’ I got a call from Martijn in the middle of the night; he had the idea of putting Tinie on the track. I rushed to his house and we finished the demo together that night. A few weeks later Tinie came to Amsterdam to record the vocals and the session was so much fun.
Diamonds is a track that is all about energy, something fresh and new but definitely made for huge crowds. Combine all of this with Tinie’s infectious vocals and a banger is born.” [Julian Jordan]
”I missed being on stage so much, and finally playing this track in front of a crowd during my first shows in almost two years felt insane. To also have both Julian and Tinie join me on stage to perform the track was so special. I’m really happy we finally get to release this one!” [Martin Garrix].
