Martin Garrix’s much-publicised legal issues with Spinnin’ Records have come to an end. At the tail end of 2015, we reported how the EDM superstar was suing the label and his ex-manager over the ownership rights of his music. Matters quickly took an unsavory turn, as Garrix hit back at the label’s counter-claims, labeling them “one sided” and “incorrect”. After a lengthy court battle we can confirm today that the 21-year old and his legal team have emerged victorious.
Although he was remaining relatively tight-lipped on the matter, Garrix made the following statement via his PR agency: “I am happy with this outcome, not only for myself but also for all other DJ’s/producers out there, since this case is not only about me, but also about all artists”.
Legal battles aside, it's been a massive year for Martin Garrix. He was named the new face of Armani Exchange and released his first advert as their ambassador last month, plus hosted his own stage at Tomorrowland in July where he unmasked his third production alias, Ytram.
It’s also been a big few weeks music-wise with the past Top 100 DJs poll winner, with Garrix releasing his new tune ‘Pizza’ and a jam-packed remix EP of his Troye Sivan collaboration, ‘There For You’.
