We hear from fellow DJs Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Julian Jordan, NERVO, Mistajam and Scuba; and meet RJ, Martin's childhood friend from Holland. Martin's manager, Watse, reveals the strategy behind his UK number one 'Animals' and describes how he knew from their first meeting, when Martin was aged just 15, that there was something very special about him.

Martin himself tells us how he feels about the fame, the fans and the haters - and how he now regulalry hangs out with Tiesto, the man who first inspired him to be a DJ.
