Martin Garrix launches STMPD Radio show on Beats 1
Hot off the back of launching his very own STMPD RCRDS label at the beginning of the year, dance music megastar Martin Garrix is proud to announce that he’ll be hosting his very own STMPD RADIO show on Apple Music’s acclaimed Beats 1 radio station. Which will air every two weeks during the summer.
Kicking off this weekend, the show is broadcasted on Fridays at 3pm LA/6pm NY/11pm LDN and repeated Saturdays at 3am LA/6am NY/11am LDN and is set to blend his favourite current bangers with exclusive first plays of upcoming material from the label and guest mixes from label artists. With this week a special one hour long guestmix from the young up and coming producer Steve James.
“I can’t wait. I’ve been brainstorming with the team about what kind of feel we want for the show. We’re all super-excited” he told the station’s flagship host, Zane Lowe, an interview on his show. “I’ll be here every two weeks mixing up my favourite tunes of the moment. So get ready: it’s going to be a massive two-hour session. I’ll be in the mix in the first hour, and the second hour we hand over the show each time to an artist who will be releasing music very soon on STMPD RCRDS.”
Highlights on the stellar debut show include tracks from Steve James, ZHU, Don Diablo, The Chainsmokers & Tritonal, Jason Caruso and of course Garrix himself. “I’m definitely going to play a lot of new Martin Garrix music on the show!” he beams—something his fans are sure to be delighted about.
