Martin Garrix

Following his somewhat messy departure from former label Spinnin Records, producer Martin Garrix has signed with Sony Music, and will now work on future releases with the major’s RCA division in the US and Columbia Records in the UK. The first release under the new deal will be ‘The Name Of Love, a collaboration with Bebe Rexha, which will be available from this coming New Music Friday.

Sony Music Entertainment Netherlands is also involved in the deal, Garrix being Dutch and all, making it a rather international arrangement. Hence why we’ve got Adam Granite of Sony International providing the quotage from the major, him saying: “Martin is one of the pre-eminent DJ, producers and songwriters in the world today and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome him and his team to the Sony Music family”.

I bet they could be more excited if they really tried. I mean, Garrix himself is “super excited”, which is surely more than just “excited”. “I’m super excited to be working with such a hungry and passionate team at Sony Music Entertainment” said the producer. “Their forward thinking approach to streaming and incredible roster of talented artists combined with their passion and understanding for my vision of the future of my music made this a no brainer”.
