Martin Garrix terminates his contract with Spinnin' Records

Posted at August 27th, 2015 | by Supreet.cheema | in

The 19-year-old big room house sensation Martin Garrix officially bids adieu to his longtime record label ‘Spinnin’ Records‘ and his management team MusicAllStars via Facebook post. The EDM star has been with Spinnin’ Records from the beginning of his journey and has released some superhits such as Animals and Gold Skies on this label.
 
Garrix recently landed #8 on Forbes’ list of highest-paid DJs with gross annual earning of $17 Million. The reason of split as cited by the DJ himself is “a difference of opinion between us regarding the reasonableness of the agreements.” He also expressed his disappointment with the label’s inability to hand him the ownership rights of his tracks.
 

Here’s the full statement as posted by Garrix:

“Due to rumours in the music industry I think it is necessary to inform everyone as follows.
It is correct that I recently nullified/terminated my agreements with MusicAllstars Management B.V. and Spinnin Records B.V.

There was a difference of opinion between us regarding the reasonableness of the agreements. Although I enjoyed working with the Spinnin and MAS team, it was not possible to bridge our different views with MusicAllstars Management B.V. and Spinnin Records B.V.

From the beginning of this year I tried to get back the ownership rights of my music from Spinnin Records and to keep my confidence in MAS. I am extremely disappointed that the discussions have not led to a change in the agreements or return of the ownership rights, and that is why I nullified them.

With that, I close this chapter. I trust that everyone respects that I would like to leave this behind me and that I prefer not to discuss this any further.

I am working on new tracks and have an exciting new project so hopefully I can share good news with you during Amsterdam Dance Event.
Martijn Garritsen”
