What’s This Playlist All About? The Dutch DJ extraordinaire reveals all: These are “tracks that I love to listen to at home or play out at a party.” It’s safe to say this spunky upstart totally brings the party with him everywhere he goes——even in the comforts of his own home.
What Do You Get? An ever-changing weekly collection of buzzy, bass-y feel-good anthems, dizzying dancefloor-fillers, and——if the feel is just right——some frayed, frenetic house and bass experiments. Like any DJ worth his/her salt, Garrix is both calculated and playful with his selections, slipping in some esoteric sounds between poppy earworms.
Biggest and Best Surprise: James Blake’s sticky, splintered cosmic-electro-soul single “If the Car Beside You Moves Ahead.”
Can You Pull This Off As Your Mix At Your Next Party?: Nope, sorry. This is expert DJ stuff. No way your friends will believe you have such hip, eclectic tastes.
