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!
