Two months into 2020, Martin Garrix is here with his first of the decade, teaming up with relatively up and coming artist Clinton Kane – in which Martin has teased multiple collaborations.
‘Drown’ sees Martin opt from the commercial route, with stand out songwriting and vocals, the Dutchman has another hit on his hands. The fresh guitar mixed with Martin Garrix’s electronic sounds makes for a catchy instrumental that is a perfect pedestal for the vocals. The overall record is more stripped-down than some of Garrix’s other musical endeavours. ‘Drown’ leans heavily into vocals and guitar, not a massive drop.
Kane’s emotive vocals offer great depth to this winning collaboration and are a perfect fit with Garrix’ style. Once again Garrix’s knack for working with brilliant vocalists from all over the world is proven, this will definitely be a key moment in Clinton Kane’s career.
Martin Garrix: “Making this track with my friend Clinton Kane was amazing! He is crazy talented, and we get along very well making the studio sessions loads of fun! I’m really happy with the end result.”
Clinton Kane: “Martin is such a warm human and a mad talent. It was heaps of fun writing and working with him on this track. We actually only met after the song was fully finished due to logistical issues and volcanic eruptions. Thank god for technology! Love him to death.”
