Earlier this year, Martin Garrix cut ties with his former label, Spinnin’ Records and MusicAllStars Management, after a dispute over music ownership. Discussing Garrix’s departure, the label and management company stated, “we were plainly willing to meet Martijn (Martin Garrix) in his wishes to negotiate the current agreements in his favor… Yet Martijn decided to unilaterally end the cooperation as of now. Of course we regret this decision.”
However, although the EDM superstar and his former label decided to cut ties last August, things were not over as the battle over ownership of Garrix’s music led to legal action (through a summary proceeding) on behalf of Garrix. Months later, the issue has now been resolved (for now at least). Per his agreement with Spinnin’ Records, Garrix will grant an exclusive license, for a limited period, to Spinnin’ Records for tracks that were released by the label until August of 2015. In return, Spinnin’ has transferred ownership rights back to Garrix. Let’s hope that the two sides continue to work things out!
Last night, Alex Metric performed for thousands at the UIC Pavillion in Chicago, IL, while the British DJ/producer supported EDM superstars Zedd and Dillon Francis (and surprise guest Martin Garrix) on their huge North American tour. Starting the party right and kicking off everyone’s Halloween weekend, Metric got everyone on their feet, whether they were an established fan of the legendary London-based producer for years or whether they just became a fan last night.
Chicago was one of the first cities to get to experience Metric’s brand new EP live. The fourth piece of his Ammunition series, Ammunition Pt. 4 is a collective of five huge new records that were designed to get the whole world moving. Whether it’s a house party down the road at the University of Illinois-Chicago or the UIC Pavilion last night, Ammunition Pt. 4 is what every bass head needs in their life right now.
As the crowd (made primarily of UIC students) filled in to find their seats, and you can bet that not one seat was actually sat on throughout the night, everyone was feeling the music to Metric’s blend of Ammunition Pt. 4 and some of his earlier mixes. Metric’s appearance was modest and simple, looking like a laid back everyday guy in his black t-shirt, but his music was far from average.
His music was impossible not to dance to, as his show was dedicated to constant movement of light, sound, and the audience. Metric isn’t just a shadow spinning beats. The arena also played complement to the performance. The music was louder than you could imagine and you could feel the bass vibrating throughout the arena and into your bones in the best way possible, especially during Metric’s own remix of ‘Lean On’, perhaps the highlight of his set.
Whether the crowd was being mesmerized by the trippy visuals in the backdrop, or whether they were swaying their hands in unison side-to-side like waves from Lake Michigan, Metric was like a club’s best bartender, in that his sole job was to keep the party going. And with such being the case, Alex Metric is due for a promotion because the party got off to a great start and made the jobs for Zedd and Dillion Francis that much easier.
Check out Metric’s new EP here, and check out even more music at his official Soundcloud.
Chicago’s Spring Awakening Music Festival lineup just got that much more sweet, as it was announced that Jack Ü (Skrillex & Diplo) will appear as the surprise headliner (this will mark the first time that the two have performed in the Midwest as a duo).

Spring Awakening takes place June 12-14, and you can buy tickets now. Check out the full lineup below, which also includes Martin Garrix, Tiesto, Zedd, Diplo, Afrojack and more!
