  • 5 Secret Collabs That You Didn’t Know Happened


    Electronic music is an interesting genre. There are countless collaborations that have taken the industry by storm and shocked the millions of fans around the world. Let’s take a look beyond the neon lights and booming bass drops and discuss five secret collabs that you probably didn’t know happened:

    Martin Garrix & Jay Hardway – Proxy

    Just over a decade ago in his early days, Martin Garrix dropped ‘Proxy’. Released as a gift to fans as a free download, this track was written and produced in collaboration with Jobke Heiblom, who you may know as Jay Hardway. ‘Proxy’ quickly became a mainstage anthem and has become a quintessential early Martin Garrix track.

    Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike & KSHMR – Stampede

    Now this track was released as a collaboration between the iconic DJ duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, DVBBS, and Borgeous. But did you know there’s another artist listed as a writer and producer on this track? You guessed it, KSHMR. This is another golden days of EDM era track, that quickly blew up and took the industry by storm.

    VINAI & W&W – Techno

    Nowadays, it seems everyone listens to techno. But eight years ago when this track was originally released, progressive house was the subgenre taking of the electronic music scene. The Italian DJ duo Vinai secretly collaborated on this track with the infamous Dutch DJ duo W&W, but it has since seemed to fall under the radar.

    David Guetta & AFROJACK – This One’s For You

    This one- at least to me- was the most surprising. Released in 2016 with singer Zara Larsson, ‘This One’s For You’ is a vibey, vocal-focused track that served as the official song of the UEFA EURO Championship. Now, David Guetta is one of the biggest names in the industry and has collaborated with dozens upon dozens of artists over the years. He has even collabed with AFROJACK before on tracks such as ‘Hey Mama’ with Nicki Minaj and Bebe Rexha, as well as ‘Hero’ and ‘Trampoline’ with Missy Elliott, BIA, and Doechii. However, it seems this track went unnoticed as a secret collaboration between the two.

    KSHMR & Vini Vici – Good Vibes Soldier

    It seems KSHMR may be the king of secret collabs. Throughout his career, he has collaborated with artists across genres, dating back to his early days as a member of The Cataracs– who collaborated with Far East Movement on the popular track ‘Like A G6’. The American DJ and producer released ‘Good Vibes Soldier’ in 2018 with Head Quattaz, which was also secretly co-written by Israeli DJ duo Vini Vici.
