Breakout dance music star and all-around big room house poster child Martin Garrix is leaving his longtime home of Spinnin’ Records, the label that launched such hits as Animals and Gold Skies.
Garrix, who recently landed #8 on Forbes’ list of highest-paid DJs, also put the kibosh on his European management, MusicAllstars Management, according to the announcement posted today on Facebook.
In a message to his fans, Garrix detailed a “a difference of opinion between us regarding the reasonableness of the agreements.” As a result of such issues, he has “tried to get back the ownership rights of my music from Spinnin Records… 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.”
Garrix is currently represented by Scooter Braun in the US, who also handles artists like Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and Carly Rae Jepsen.
To his fans, the Notorious GRX offers some good news: “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.”
