At the age of just 17, Dutch DJ and producer Martin Garrix has quickly become one of the biggest names in dance music.

Beginning with collaborations alongside Sidney Samson, Julian Jordan and a remix for Christina Aguilera, he exploded into the mainstream with the release of last year's enormous number 1 single Animals, in the process becoming the youngest-ever artist to have a number 1 on the specialist dance music service Beatport.

We caught up with Martin to find out his Ultimate Playlist, which resulted in some big tunes, and a frankly brilliant suggestion for the song with containing his favourite lyrics. Read on to discover his selections...

Wizard by Martin Garrix and Jay Hardway is released 23rd March. Find out all the latest release and tour news from www.martingarrix.com
