Musical Discovery: Wizard by Martin Garrix and Jay Hardway

After the massive number 1 single, Animals, DJ Martin Garrix is back with his follow-up single, Wizard.

The track itself sees Garrix collaborate with Jay Hardway, with a track that has a catchy main melody that is repeated throughout the song.

In fact, the song itself was released on YouTube months ahead of its recent release date, and now it is storming up the charts. However, I have to say that the track is half disappointing…

Like Animals, Garrix builds up the tension with a repetitive and unique melody. However, when the best drops itself, it doesn’t follow the pattern of the previous melody. Also, the “drop” itself lacks drum and bass – which is what all top dance tunes need!

For me, Wizard provides a great melody throughout, but the beat drop is disappointing, and by it following the same “ping-pong ball” effect of Animals, it is understandable when people say that the two songs are similar…

Overall, a decent track from the DJ, but a song with great drum and bass will be likely to go down well in the charts.
