Martin Garrix has extended his worldwide publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing, it was announced earlier this week.

“As a multi-talented and versatile songwriter, artist and producer, Martin Garrix is has become a phenomenon in music and he continues to amaze us with his creativity”, said Mark Bremer, Managing Director of Universal Music Publishing Benelux. “We are privileged to extend our successful publishing relationship with him”.

Garrix himself added: “The Universal Music Publishing team around the world has been really supportive, and I’m very happy to continue working together for the coming years”.

It’s nice that things are so friendly on the publishing side of Garrix’s business. As previously reported, the producer went legal with his former label Spinning Records last year, claiming that the boss of the label, Eelko Van Kooten, who was also his manager, had not acting in his best interests when setting up his record deal. The matter was settled in December, although Garrix hinted that there many be further legal action against Van Kooten’s company in the future.
