Major Labels Continue Siege On Martin Garrix’s YouTube Videos

Major Labels Continue Siege On Martin Garrix’s YouTube Videos

Martin Garrix is no stranger to major label controversy, having recently cut ties with Dutch house giants Spinnin’ Records amidst arguments over music ownership. But recently other majors, including the likes of Warner Music Group and Sony Records, have begun to go after Garrix – and not in a good way.

The corporate behemoths have stricken not just his prolific Sziget Festival show, but have just forcibly removed his record-breaking performance at Ultra Music Festival 2015. The hour-long, energy packed set, which also served as the debut platform for Martin Garrix and Usher‘s chart-topping collaborative effort, “Don’t Look Down,” had racked up nearly 27 million plays and 170,000 thumbs-ups during it’s tenure on YouTube. Now, however, we’re left staring at yet another static screen declaring the video unwatchable; left questioning why it took the labels so long to enact this removal; and left wondering how they couldn’t come to an agreement which enabled the 19-year-old to leave up such a massively successful upload.

Thanks to the internet, though, and non-tyrannical hosting services like Vimeo, we were able to locate said performance in full HD. Enjoy it below while you still can, there’s no saying how long this one will last…
