If the DJ community could be your family, who would be your immediate family members? Beatport got a chance to sit down with Dutch DJ/producer Martin Garrix during Miami Music Week and - in one of the more creative interview questions - asked what his hypothetical DJ family tree would look like. Obviously, Tiësto is his figurative father as the dance music king is strongly accredited with Garrix's rapid rise to fame. Dillon Francis also made the cut as one of his children, most likely due to Francis' infamously playful personality. 

Check out the full clip below to hear the rest of his DJ family tree. 

On a more serious note, the father-son-like-relationship seems to be boding well for Tiësto and Garrix, as the two are in the midst of releasing their forthcoming collaboration "The Only Way Is Up" via Musical Freedom Recs. The collab is scheduled to be released May 4th, 2015, but you can preview the track below.
