Martin Garrix and Matisse & Sadko truly deserve to form an official trio at this point. It’s only been four months since the respective STMPD RCRDS and Monomark Music founders tapped in who else but John Martin for their progressive house treasure and one of our top tracks of 2021 in “Won’t Let You Go,” and they’re already back together to run up their collaborative tally—excluding any co-productions—to a grand total of eight times since “Dragon.” And “Good Morning” was the very first sliver of music that Garrix used to soundtrack his maiden tour stop of 2022 at Lollapalooza’s Chile edition—and also served as the grand opening to his Bayfront Park reunion at the end of March—now being converted into the fifth extension of Sentio, which—if you’ve somehow been living under a rock the past 10 days—is his debut album that’s set to be fully completed on April 29.
Everything about “Good Morning” reaffirms yet again that Garrix and Matisse & Sadko’s synergy is as cohesive as it’s ever been, starting with its incredibly apt title—which Garrix himself revealed on our Instagram post—considering it’s been the figurative alarm clock to the former’s sets. And not only is the track name a refreshing change of pace, the style is as well, with the trio building off what they did through their “Mistaken” club mix, angling away from traditional progressive house—with a lead that’s still rigged with a progressive heart—for a gritty, explosive house gem that further evolves Garrix and Matisse & Sadko’s collective timeline that they’ve grown throughout the previous seven years.
With “Starlight“—alongside DubVision and Shaun Farrugia—already locked in to join “Follow,” “Limitless,” “Reboot,” “Quantum,” and “Good Morning” on the Sentio tracklist on April 15, Garrix still has six Ultra IDs left to choose from for his remaining release spots—unless more than one arrives on April 29—including the Julian Jordan ID, the Dutch Waters ID with DubVision, “Find You” with Justin Mylo and Dewain Whitmore, the DallasK ID, the Blinders ID, and Garrix’s confirmed Ultra finale alongside Shaun Farrugia.
