The Chainsmokers have their multi-million dollar mansions, and Skrillex is working on building the ultimate beachside compound, but the #1 DJ in the world is perfectly happy with a fresh apartment in the heart of Amsterdam.
Martin Garrix is undoubtedly one of the raddest kids in dance music, maintaining a strikingly humble attitude despite being one of the world’s most in-demand artists.
