“Of course I had a hard time not telling people that I made it,” Garrix tells CODE of the secret rollout. “But it was funny to see people speculating the last couple of weeks. To be honest, I never expected so much buzz around this track.”
Garrix has been a busy production buddy lately, releasing co-created tracks on big labels. Check “Torrent” with Sidney Samson on Tiësto’s Musical Freedom, and “BFAM” with Julian Jordan, also on Spinnin. A solo affair, the very hungry “Animals” hints that the globular start-stop-smack of “BFAM” in particular might be the burgeoning producer’s specialty.
“After a lot of collaborations over the last few months, it was time to come up with a new solo track,” says Garrix. “We decided to just put up the teaser with the title to see what would happen.”
