We can’t relax when Martin Garrix unveils new tracks. This time, the most popular youth in electronic dance music teamed up with Russian duo Matisse & Sadko for a massive progressive house tune. The song, titled “Dragon,” premiered on the latest episode of Martin’s podcast The Martin Garrix Show and is sure to be the next festival anthem, much like his tracks “Tremor” with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, “Gold Skies” with Aleesia, Sander van Doorn, and DVBBS, and most recently “The Only Way Is Up” with Tiësto.
From the preview, listeners can pick up the delicate piano made famous by Matisse & Sadko in tunes like “Trio” with Arty and their remix of “Beating Of My Heart” by M-3ox. The arpeggio that is forged in piano is flavored by another melody made up of the signature synths found in many Martin Garrix songs that fans have come to love. To top off this blending of styles, the drop is a straight shot into prog-house vibes ideal to lose yourself in. From firm basslines to catchy melodies, “Dragon” appears to have all the right makes of a solid house song in this day and age.
Although there is no official date for this song’s release, you can listen to the three minute rip of the Martin Garrix and Matisse & Sadko collaboration uploaded to SoundCloud. If the song is received well, it should not be long before an official preview is uploaded and the official track finds itself in the music libraries, Spotify playlists, and mp3 players of progressive house music fans everywhere.
