Spinnin’ Records Fires Back at Martin Garrix with a new statement
Martin Garrix recently released a statement via facebook, stating that he was severing ties with long time record label, Spinnin’ Records. In light of this, Spinnin’ has just released a statement in response to what Martin seems to have possibly misconstrued.
We regret to inform that the highly successful cooperation between Martin Garrix (Martijn Garritsen), Spinnin’ Records and MusicAllStars Management has ended.
Due to his unique success we have been in close contact with Martijn and his team for the last months on adjusting the current, still ongoing agreements. We were plainly willing to meet Martijn in his wishes to negotiate the current agreements in his favor.
Hereby we also confirmed transfer of ownership. Yet Martijn decided to unilaterally end the cooperation as of now. Of course we regret this decision. Nevertheless the whole team looks back on a beautiful collaboration. Guiding Martijn from an unknown, but highly talented artist to a world famous star has been a amazing experience and we are all proud of the success.
We wish him all the best in his further career. We will remain doing what we are good in, which is releasing new music, looking out for, develop and realize success with new talents, all with ambition and passion for music.

So who’s to blame here? While Spinnin is certainly coming at this from a “We still have your back” angle, it’s not clear who, on either side, was the one who couldn’t come to an agreement. History is history we suppose, and we know Martin will continue to venture on the line of success, as well as Spinnin continuing to be the EDM powerhouse they have grown to be.
