This song has been a long time coming. We first heard it almost a year ago during Martin’s set at Tomorrowland. From that point on fans were ravenous to find out the release details of the future house, hard-driving track that was unlike anything they had ever heard. Finally though, today on April 20 – it has officially arrived. It just might be some of the best work we have heard from Martin in quite some time as well.
The track is not like anything we have heard from Garrix in quite awhile. The artist has been focusing heavily on the big room, future bass side of things in his last few projects and to get a track rooted in the house genre is definitely exciting. What’s more is that Loopers has brought in a unique style of driving percussion which gives this tune a wonderful little West Coast feel to it throughout. It sounds like it could find a home on AC Slater’s Night Bass imprint.
An unexpected surprise towards the backend of this tune is a bit of a melodic break where classical instrumentation and arrangements are featured. It is a perfect break from the madness before we dive back into for the outro of the tune. The complexity of ‘Game Over’ is what helps it really stand out from the pack. Classical elements, 8-bit pieces, wild vocal samples and so much more help this tune be elevated from the rest of the pack. Check it out below.
