DJ Martin Garrix has ended his deal with indie label Spinnin’ Records to sign a major agreement worldwide with Sony Music International.
The Dutch artist will be on RCA Records in the US and Columbia Records in the UK.
His first release via Sony will be single In The Name of Love ft. Bebe Rexha (both pictured), which will be out on July 29th.
Garrix first rose to international fame with his 2013 single Animals, which has sold over 10 million worldwide to date. Since then, he has collaborated with Ed Sheeran, Usher, Avicii and Tiesto.
He has headlined Ultra Music Festival and Tomorrowland, owns his own record label STMPD Records, and has a weekly show on Apple’s Beats 1 under the same name.
The Sony deal was negotiated by Sony Music Entertainment Netherlands, RCA US, Columbia UK and Sony Music International’s London bureau.
It was led by Adam Granite for Sony Music International and Scooter Braun and Michael George for SB Projects, as well as Watse De Jong of Watse Matter, Garrix’s management teams.
“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.”
