Is Martin Garrix Behind this New Mysterious Alias?

Posted at April 1st, 2016 | by Supreet.cheema | in

Like every year Ultra Miami featured some truly amazing IDs by such artists as Martin Garrix, Hardwell among others that have left dance music fans around the world wait in anticipation for the release. Garrix, who premiered 10 New tracks at Ultra, claimed that his set would be “100% Martin Garrix” but recently the ID at 37:49 of his set has just been released under the mysterious alias AREA21, titled ‘Spaceships.’

The track uploaded under AREA21’s profile is now a day old and has garrix’s trademark sound design and melodies. If we go by the pre-set claim made by Garrix, we can assume that this is Dutch DJ’s side project with another artist. Who could it be?

Area21 logo shows two aliens in a spaceship and the description reads – original music made on a spaceship. Timmy Kusnierek of YourEDM investigated on this and found that “AREA21 has all the required social media profiles, and they’re only following someone named Johnny Shahidi on Instagram. Johnny is the CEO of Shots and also happens to be homies with Justin Bieber.

Johnny Shahidi and his brother/Shots Co-Founder Sammy Shahidi, have been going wild over AREA21 via Twitter, and considering that Justin Bieber and Martin Garrix have to be keen as to what’s going on, we’re left wondering what could possibly tie all these guys together… The answer is their manager, Scooter Braun, which leads us to speculate who else this mystery rapper could be. And our next best guess is… Asher Roth.
