Ten minutes into an hour-long conversation with Martin Garrix, it’s blindingly obvious that there’s something more simmering underneath the surface of what people now call ‘The World’s Number One DJ’.

If you dispel the chaos and sparks that surround him on a regular basis, you’re faced with a 21 year old who is wise beyond his years – maybe even too smart for his own good. Martin is the brain behind the songs that we’ve had stuck in our heads for the past years. He knows what we want to listen to before we do. Labeled as the top EDM DJ and a self-confessed computer nerd, Martin’s got it all figured out. What makes him tick though? We try to find out. Here’s Martin Garrix – FAULTs and all.

On the pressure that followed after ‘Animals’:

“I made ‘Animals’ as a club song. I couldn’t wait to play it live to like… 300 people at that time?! Next thing I knew everybody started playing it. And then the pressure followed. The label people were like – so when’s the follow up coming? I had no fucking clue. I had nothing.”

On maintaining his integrity as an EDM artist:

A lot of EDM artists go like – ah you’re a sell out. [After the radio success of ‘Animals’] It took me a really long time to get my credibility back in the club scene. I had to do a crazy amount of club songs. And radio people kept asking about new radio singles. I had to shoot them down every time until this year – when I started doing radio songs again.”

Martin wears looks by McQ by Alexander McQueen, Homme Plissé by Issey Miyake and more in the lavish ‘I Am On Top of the World’ penthouse suite at the stunning Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel in Ibiza

On his personality:

“Oh me? I’m just a nerd, a pure 100% computer nerd. And I’m always very happy. If you ask anybody – they’d just say that I’m a crazy person who always runs around with a big smile.”

How he handles the pressure of being in the public eye:

“At the end of the day, I have a responsibility to put songs out there for my fans – so you won’t really catch me drunk before a show. I do drink and go out with my friends, but I have some common sense not to Snapchat the whole thing, do you know what I mean?”

On his decision to launch STMPD RCRDS:

“I started my own label last year called STMPD RCDRS – just so I could do whatever I wanted and whenever I wanted it. Now nobody can tell me what I can and can’t release. Plus I really wanted to support new talent in the industry – but it’s nice that I’m able to do whatever I feel like.”

On “the naughtiest thing he’s ever done”:

“We were in Paraguay … We came back after doing a show and I really wanted to go for a swim. The swimming pool was shut and I had nowhere to go – apart from the small pool in the hotel lobby. It was more like a mini-fountain, totally part of the hotel décor, by the way.

“And I just went swimming in there. Which was more like lying on the floor playing with water ’cause it was about 10 cm deep!”

Rare photos of Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso @ Zebra One Gallery, London

These fantastic, never-before-seen images of legendary artists Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali are currently being exhibited at the Zebra One Gallery in Hampstead, London. The shots, on display until the end of September ’17, give a rare, intimate glimpse into the lives of two of the 20th century’s most influential artists.

Commenting on the shots, the gallery shared the thought that, “Throughout Salvador Dali’s career, a question that reoccurred time and time again was whether he would cut his iconic moustache – a point that is addressed in many of these shots, with him at the mirror with a razor and holding a sword against his moustache.”

Whether he actually cut it or not is still up for debate…

Salvador Dali Moustache Miroir by Paul Popper, 1964.

 

Portrait of Pablo Picasso by Gilles Ehrmann, 1952. This iconic portrait a favourite of Picasso’s wife, Jacqueline Roque, and is the only one which is hung in their house in Mougins.

 

Dali, a woman and his cane by Unknown Artist, 1967. The photo shows Dali standing next to a young woman brandishing his famous cane.

A legend in his lifetime by Edward Quinn, 1968. Here Picasso arranges two works for viewing: Figure carrying a stone, 1931 and Figures by the sea, 1931.

 

Salvador Dali and Captain Moore with an Ocelot by Unknown Artist, 1967. The photo shows Moore holding a pet Ocelot watched by Dali with the port holes of the ship behind them. This is a surrealistic scene which would have appealed to Dali.  The ocelot, named Babou, was Dali’s favourite pet.

Premiere: Ed Harcourt debuts new video for ‘The World is on Fire’

Former Mercury prize nominee Ed Harcourt has unleashed a new music video for ‘The World is on Fire’, the opening track from last year’s album ‘Furnaces’.

Harcourt’s seventh album was critically acclaimed, picking up an average 4/5 star rating from jaded critics and aficionados of deeply melodic, atmospheric pop alike.  If ‘The World is on Fire’ sets the tone for a richly immersive aural feast, the new video by Annick Wolfers matches its brooding intensity step for step:
 

 
Described as an apocalyptic painterly video, the short film was inspired by the mythology of Vulcan, the Roman god of fire, and was filmed in the Scottish Highlands. Taking a near-literal take on the song title, the video sees a statuesque warrior as the last woman standing in preparation for the end of the world as we know it.

The video continues a theme of exceptional art direction from Harcourt – the artwork for both this single and the ‘Furnaces’ album was designed by highly regarded British cartoonist Ralph Steadman:

IBIZA ROCKS x BULLDOG Gin @ Lights of Soho

Photographer: Luke Dyson

Last Thursday 8th June, FAULT were privileged to attend the launch of legendary live music brand, IBIZA ROCKS‘ hardback photographic book by acclaimed French photographer Jérôme Ferrière. Curated by Dawn Hindle, Creative Director and co-founder of Ibiza Rocks and co-owner of the iconic Pikes Hotel in Ibiza, the book is ultimately a powerful retrospective filled with over 100 rebellious, irreverent and iconic images that document a fresh new generation of live music – encapsulating the magic that is Ibiza Rocks.

Jérôme Ferrière poses with a copy of the IBIZA ROCKS book

IBIZA ROCKS is a must-have for die-hard music fans and also for Ibiza-culture lovers everywhere. The book is a visual feast of the frontline of fame. The electric essence and edgy spirit of Ibiza’s live music shines through each picture, and the book is peppered with original quotes from many of the artists who have been included.

Hosted at FAULT’s favourite London cultural hotspot, the incomparable Lights of Soho, Dawn also showcased her latest True Rocks jewellery line in collaboration with Bip Ling who hit the decks to entertain guests.

L-R: Jérôme Ferrière, Bip Ling, Dawn Hindle

The event was supported by BULLDOG Gin and, after a successful partnership in 2016 with the ‘BULLDOG Brunch at Pikes’, BULLDOG Gin and Pikes will be continuing their strategic partnership this summer, bringing a mix of culinary delights, delicious cocktails and Ibiza vibes to London with a series of pop-up brunches at various London locations. We’re already looking forward to the next one!

P.S: Happy Birthday Suzi!

Snakehips: FAULT Favourites release new single

You know an act’s hot when they’re namechecked in every other feature in FAULT Magazine. That’s what people say, right?

As uncertain as that may be, it’s clear that British electro duo Snakehips (aka Oliver Lee and James Carter) have been making waves with a host of our featured artists recently: Olly Chamberlain, Vanessa White and Midnight Pool Party are all big fans.

Following the success of January single ‘Don’t Leave’ – featuring acclaimed Danish songstress – the remixers-turned-producers have returned with their latest offering ‘Right Now’.

Buy/Stream ‘Right Now’ Here

Featuring Snakehips’ customary lineup of electrifying young talent, ‘Right Now’ marries sensual club vibes with crisp hip-hop lyrics performed by Lil’ Yachty collaborator D.R.A.M. Emerging Atlanta-based singer/songwriter ELHAE and mysterious vocalist H.E.R. also feature on the track. With a back catalogue of projects with the likes of Anderson Paak, Chance The Rapper, Syd, Tory Lanez and Tinashe, it’s fair to say that Snakehips have a knack of working with the hottest breakthrough artists around. We expect to be hearing a lot more from the capitalized trio very soon.

After two major festival dates in Ireland and Spain, the duo will be touring in American throughout June (full tour schedule below). On the 8th September, the pair will return to London for what promises to be a huge homecoming gig at the 2,300 capacity O2 Forum in Kentish Town.
