Spotify is by far the largest digital streaming service available in music today. The platform has helped artists take their releases from the non-monetized Soundcloud platform and allowed them to begin to profit (albeit, very minimally) from streams of their music. That being said, the streaming service does still have some issues they need to work out. Martin Garrix has been the victim of one of these faults time and time again. Now he has truly had enough.
Martin Garrix Goes After Fake Artists
Martin Garrix has a wealth of unreleased material. He is constantly playing out IDs in his sets. Not only is this exciting for the crowd, but it also helps Garrix gauge the track by the crowd’s reaction. Since many sets are recorded these days, anyone is able to rip the unreleased tunes and upload them to Spotify under their personal profile as copyright software will not detect them.
Unfortunately, this has happened many times to Marty, and today he has officially had enough. He dropped a statement on his Instagram story saying he was exhausted by fake producers taking credit for his hard work. So if you are one of those people who partake in theft – stop. We all want to continue hearing unreleased Martin Garrix during his sets. Check out his statement below.
