Martin Garrix collaborates once again with Russia’s finest Matisse & Sadko on Forever
Sony Music/STMPD RCRDS are back with another anthem from STMPD label boss Martin Garrix, once again in collaboration with standout Russian brother duo Matisse & Sadko. The result is Forever: an especially epic slice of dancefloor mayhem that’s bursting at the seams with euphoric goodness.
The glorious breakdowns are driven by commanding organ chords and decked out with melancholy guitar licks that recall sorrowful ‘80s pop-rock. The build-up is kept minimal before the mighty lead riff is unleashed, a resplendent and triumphant trancey refrain that’s super-polished. Gorgeous key changes meet us in the second break with a bigger snare build creating a tense sense of anticipation. Only a few elements are needed to create a full sound, such is this team’s production prowess and keen sense of arrangement. Less is more when you use the best ingredients and blend them perfectly.
It’s the fourth occasion Matisse & Sadko have collaborated with Garrix, following the wild success of Break Through The Silence, Dragon and Together, and they have also crafted dancefloor gold alongside Steve Angello. With remixes for Afrojack, millions of streams online and sets at Tomorrowland, Omnia Las Vegas and Usuhuïa to name but a few, they are rapidly rising through the ranks of the dance music scene.
It’s a big month for Martin Garrix, with two sold out shows during ADE at the gargantuan Amsterdam RAI and the following week at London’s legendary O2 Academy Brixton.
