Must Have Music #019
LisTEN TO THIS RIGHT NOW
Summary: This one was recently submitted by our very own Larry, who just got back from leading our Iceland 2018 tour with nearly 20 people. From dropping into CrossFit Reykjavik, to ice climbing, sneaking beneath waterfalls, and riding snowmobiles across glaciers, it sounded like a totally epic trip. And with all that adrenaline pumping, I'm sure the group needed some fire jams to keep the energy up and going.
Larry also works as part of the CrossFit Seminar Staff as of recently, and besides coaching full-time and leading tours on the side, he is also a DJ and shares some pretty incredible music from his Twitter account @Larry_Thomas_.
Anyway, this song in particular is a collaboration between David Guetta and Martin Garrix, two massively successful European DJ's and was released this year in February 2018. The YouTube video above has nearly 75 million views and is a kickass video. The first time I heard it, I wasn't totally encapsulated, but it is an amazing CrossFit jam to rock out to while you're grinding through a WOD. When I heard it at the box recently, it totally got to me and I was like, 'Ahhhh, I get it now!'
Props to Larry for sharing this fire jam. I've been listening to it non-stop this week.

MORE ABOUT BROOKS
Brooks' career as a DJ began to progress when he sent his song to twenty random email addresses that could be related to Martin Garrix. To his delight, the song he sent was played by Garrix at a show.
Soon after, Garrix contacted and told Brooks of his enthusiasm with his music. Garrix later invited him to his house to work on the "Byte" song. Brooks described the event as a "crazy story" but told he was lucky.
