Martin Garrix’s Ultra Music Festival Performance Footage Taken Off YouTube


In the months that followed Martin Garrix‘s split with Dutch label Spinnin’ Records, more and more fallout from the untimely turn of events surfaces. Footage from the young DJ/producer’s performance at Sziget Festival was recently pulled from YouTube, and now it appears that they’ve done the same with his Ultra Music Festival 2015 performance as well.

Garrix’s Ultra set stands out as one of his landmark performances; he debuted more new music than at any of his other 2015 gigs and even brought pop singer Usher onstage to debut their collaboration, “Don’t Look Down.” The video amassed almost 27 million plays over the course of the last eight months.

While Spinnin’ Records may be more boutique than the big four labels that have been at odds with DJing and remixing culture since long before electronic music broke into the mainstream spotlight, the label’s cold, methodical approach to the split contrasts somewhat with their apparent well wishes for Martin Garrix at the time of their parting.

Thankfully, a Vimeo user was fortunate enough to port over the video on the infinitely less-regulated platform. So, if by some chance you haven’t seen Martin Garrix‘s performance at Ultra Music Festival 2015, you can check it out below.
