DJ Martin Garrix Talks Collaborating with Dua Lipa on 'Scared to Be Lonely'

Martin Garrix is on the cover of Rogue magazine’s new issue looking hot hot hot!

Here’s what the 21-year-old DJ had to share with the mag:

On collaborating with Dua Lipa: “With Dua [Lipa], I had never met her in real life but I had this song called ‘Scared to Be Lonely’ and I really wanted [her to sing] a duet to be on the record because I loved her voice. Actually I’m in the process of doing another song together with her. I really got to like her and found out she’s amazing and super dope, she has great energy. There’s also been times where people are recommended to collaborate with but I don’t really connect with that person. But I did with her. The writing process is the most important thing and if there’s not a great vibe in the studio creating a song, then it’s not worth staying in the studio.”

On the “craziest feeling ever”: “The feeling on stage and feeling the crowd, like when I am at Coachella and I couldn’t see the end of the tent– it was, and still is–the craziest feeling ever. Every show the moment I get on stage I have goosebumps everywhere until the moment I leave the stage.”

On his process: “When I am in the studio I don’t have a process, it just happens organically. Every time I start a song, it begins differently. Sometimes I start with a kick drum for a couple hours until I am happy with it, then I start adding percussion and coming up with the melody. Sometimes I start with a cool melody and then I will go and find the right sound for it and sometimes I accidentally bump into a cool sound that fits the song. Or I just grab my guitar and start messing around with it until I come up with something. But the fun thing for me about making music is there are no rules, you do whatever feels good. That’s what I like about it.”

Dua Lipa is also featured in Rogue mag’s latest issue and you can see a photo below!
