Garrix launched his own label and is enlisting Justin Bieber for a song.


Martin Garrix is celebrating the launch of his new label STMPD RCRDS with a little help from Justin Bieber.

Garrix shot to fame with 2013’s “Animals” and ever since has been on the move, playing some of the biggest music festivals in the world and inking a reoccurring DJ deal at Las Vegas’ Omnia nightclub. In 2015, the 19-year-old announced his split from Spinnin’ Records due to a “difference of opinion between us regarding the reasonableness of the agreements” over ownership rights to his music, specifically “Animals” which he released at 17 and unfamiliar with the terms of a binding legal contract. Garrix said: “From the beginning of this year I tried to get back the ownership rights of my music from Spinnin’ Records and to keep my confidence in MAS. I am extremely disappointed that the discussions have not led to a change in the agreements or return of the ownership rights, and that is why I nullified them.” interviews Martin Garrix

Garrix has since launched his own label, STMPD RCRDS, and is excited to share the new music he’s currently crafting. He took to Twitter to announce the news, saying “WOOooohooohooOo so happy to finally announce my own label! Can’t wait for all of you to hear the new music x Martijn.”

Rumors swirled Garrix enlisted Justin Bieber, who made waves in EDM with his Jack Ü collabo “Where Are Ü Now,” for a new song, so Garrix took the opportunity to confirm it.

Last year, spoke with Garrix about the pressures of super stardom and if he felt the constant pressure to stay relevant. “Hmm no. I had it after ‘Animals,'” Garrix told us. “The problem is if you go like this (raises his hand up), you can go very quickly down again as well (lowers hand). That’s the challenge… to stay relevant. The longer you stay relevant, the longer you don’t have to release a big hit.”
