Breakthrough DJ/producer of 2018: “Sigala. He has really killed the game this year.”
Enjoying his third consecutive year in the Top 100, Denmark’s Martin Jensen is an EDM fast-riser with a knack for crossover records that shine particularly bright with their female vocals. This was crystal clear with his 2016 breakthrough smash ‘Solo Dance’ (currently swiftly approaching a stupendous half-billion Spotify streams), and the trend continues this year with his summer smash ‘16 Steps’ with Olivia Holt. Jensen tells DJ Mag he’s taken a step up this year.
“I’ve expanded my team in order to push the boundaries even further,” Jensen says. “I’ve been super-productive in the studio lately, I’ve felt a whole new energy towards production and I’ve just released a new club EP called ‘World’. We’ve toured the world, done a bunch of great shows and gone even more in-depth with the show production than ever before. I love seeing the shows evolve in this way, and already have plans for what’s coming next year. I can’t wait to see the response.”
