Don Diablo Drops Thrilling One-Off Remix for Martin Garrix
A week after Ocean Remixes Vol 2 and three weeks after Vol 1, Don Diablo has released his own remix of the pop collaboration between Martin Garrix and Khalid unencumbered by any other artists.
Don Diablo’s “Ocean” remix is pretty much exactly what you’d expect from the Dutch DJ: lots of the same future house synths and rhythm used in a lot of his other tracks. It’s a well-produced track by anyone’s barometer, but it lacks a lot of originality that Don was known for in years past. He’s seemingly found himself in a groove that he can’t escape – and for people who like that sound, it’s awesome. For those of us who perhaps want something new after the third or fourth track, it’s just a tad disappointing.
Don Diablo’s remix of “Ocean” is out now – check it out below.
Don Diablo Reveals New Remix for Martin Garrix Out Friday [FIRST LISTEN]
It’s only been four days since Martin Garrix & Khalid dropped Volume 2 of their “Ocean” remixes, with new cuts from Holy Goof, Myrne, and more. And yet, we’re already getting another special remix of the track from none other than Hexagon leader Don Diablo this Friday.
As with most Don Diablo tracks, it follows a similar pattern with some distorted vocals, piano, and future house synths that will no doubt get you dancing. The remix was played at during his set at Tomorrowland this year, which you can see below!
Martin Garrix Remixes His Own Collab with Khalid for Latest Release [MUST LISTEN]
Martin Garrix & Khalid’s “Ocean” was released in June to mixed reviews. For us here at Your EDM, we weren’t the biggest fans of it. Keeping in mind that artists are allowed to experiment with different styles, it still just didn’t hit the right notes in our opinion.
That being said, Garrix and Khalid have just released the first volume of remixes for “Ocean,” with seven unique interpretations from Bart B More, Cazztek, DubVision, Goja, Todd Helder, Silque, and Martin Garrix himself along with Cesqeaux.
Putting special attention on the Martin Garrix and Cesqeaux remix, a pairing we never thought we’d see, the two transform the original into an exciting and experimental tune that is sure to surprise as much as the artist pairing does.
Our favorites of the bunch, aside from Martin Garrix and Cesqeaux, have to be DubVision and Goja. DubVision brings the remix in a way that we believe Garrix should have in the first place, putting a highly enjoyable house spin. Goja, on the other hand, puts a much darker twist on the track than any of the other tracks.

Martin Garrix & Khalid's Collab Is Finally Here, But Does It Live Up To The Hype?
Martin Garrix’s long-awaited collaboration with Khalid, “Ocean,” is finally out today. But does it live up to the hype?
Khalid somewhat broke into the dance music world with a feature on Marshmello’s song “Silence,” which has become a worldwide hit with over 800 million streams across all services. He returns on another superstar’s track, teaming up with Martin Garrix for “Ocean.”
To get right to the point, this is easily the most mellow of any Garrix song we’ve heard thus far. It plays more to Khalid’s style than it does to his own, which presents both pros and cons. While we’re happy that Khalid actually sounds as good as he does on this, it’s missing a lot of the Garrix style that we’ve grown accustomed to. The drop features more acoustic elements – guitar, strings, subtle percussion – than some of Martin’s more bombastic tracks.
As always, we should point out that we’re not against artists evolving and trying out new things. But in some cases, those experiments don’t always bear the sweetest fruit.
There will undoubtedly be fans who like this track, just as there will be those who don’t. Listen to “Ocean” below and find out which you are.

Official Art for Martin Garrix & Khalid's Collab Leaks Ahead of Release
When Martin Garrix and Khalid teased a collaboration last year, fans got hyped. Then, the collab was confirmed to release on June 15. And now we’ve got the artwork for the collab.
The artwork for Garrix and Khalid’s upcoming collab “Ocean” is…a bit underwhelming. The two are pictured in a nondescript location in front of some bright lights. Khalid is holding his jacket open as if he’s about to reveal his weapons arsenal, and Garrix stands around awkwardly. It’s possible the artwork will tie into a possible music video for “Oceans,” but so far we’re left scratching our heads.
Khalid has collaborated with EDM superstars in the past: with Marshmello on “Silence” and with Calvin Harris on “Rollin.” Garrix is also no stranger to collaborating with R&B icons like Usher and Bebe Rexha. We’re excited to listen to the single when it drops this Friday, despite the uninspired cover art.
Check back in on Friday, June 15, for our coverage of “Ocean”!
Martin Garrix Reveals Release Date for His Most Hotly Anticipated Collab
The Billboard Music Awards were held this past weekend in Las Vegas during Electric Daisy Carnival, offering up plenty of artists for interviews and fresh info while they were in town. While Martin Garrix ended up playing the massive circuitGROUNDS stage at EDC for the second year running, he also talked with Sirius XM at the BBMAs and revealed some titillating news about his next single.
Khalid announced a collaboration with Martin Garrix was in the works back in April, and now Garrix has revealed that the song, called “Oceans,” will officially be out on Friday, June 15.
At this time, there’s no preview or idea of what the collaboration sounds like. But if we know Garrix and Khalid, working together will be nothing short of a #1 hit.

REPORT: Martin Garrix Is Dropping Two MASSIVE Collabs Next Month
This is not a drill! Martin Garrix will soon (reportedly) drop two new tracks and fans are double the hyped about it!
That’s not even the best part. Both tracks boast huge collaborators — Fetty Wap and Khalid. The first single “Outside” with Fetty Wap is reportedly set to release June 7 and “Ocean” featuring Khalid will come out June 15.
Last month, Garrix teased that he was in studio with Fetty Wap. Apparently they had an amazing studio session together, working through the early hours and past 8 am. One selfie was all it took to get fans excited for what’s now known as “Outside.”
Around the same time, the “Silence” singer spilled the beans on his Garrix collab, so there has been just enough time for anticipation to build for the new single. Khalid is quickly becoming one of the most in-demand collaborators in the EDM world.
Shoutout to The Martin Garrix Hub for staying on top of these release dates!

In a recent interview, the #1 DJ in the world has revealed a timeline for the release ( Kenh14 News): “At the moment, I can announce that I have a new song with Khalid. He is a great singer. We will release it early June!”

Travis Scott, Rae Sremmurd, Post Malone & More To Perform At Osheaga 2018
While the winter season slowly leaves, it's time that we gear up for festival season. Over the past few months, line-ups have been unveiling their line-ups slowly but surely. We're seeing some fire names that'll be doing the festival circuit this summer. For Canadians that won't have the opportunity to make it to Coachella or Governor's Ball, Osheaga is your best bet. Every year, the host an incredible three day festival at the top August for music fans all genres. Today, they unveil their 2018 line-up.
Osheaga 2018 is looking pretty lit for hip hop heads. Travis Scott will be headlining on Friday with Rae Sremmurd, Killy, NAV and Smokepurpp also performing that day. On Saturday, August 4th, Khalid, Tyler, The Creator, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, Kali Uchis, Tokimonsta and A-Trak will take the stage. To close things out on Sunday, August 5th, Post Malone, BROCKHAMPTON, Blood Orange, DVSN, GoldLink, Dua Lipa and more will be performing.
Osheaga takes place from August 3-5th at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal, QC. It's definitely looking hella lit, especially with Travis Scott headlining which might hint that we might be able to expect Astroworld to come before then. He's been heavily locked in the studio for the past few months working on the project and some reports have said that his focus has been on a whole other level since the birth his daughter, Stormi.
Peep the full festival line-up below. Tickets are on sale now.
