Whenever someone attends a music festival, concert, or any grand musical event, there is a chance that they will get to hear unreleased music from their favorite artists. Martin Garrix is one of those artists who liked playing his unreleased music in front of his fans (until recently). The four-time DJ Mag #1 DJ in the world (and multiple-time MTV Europe and International Dance Music Award winner) uploaded an Instagram Story post a couple days ago where he stated that an unreleased single from a recent set he did with British progressive house duo Third Party (stylized as Third ≡ Party) was ripped off by an unknown DJ/producer and uploaded onto various streaming platforms.

Martin Garrix speaks up against the producer who ripped off his unreleased music
Readers can see the screenshot from his IG Story shown below, which shows him messaging the culprit, below. Martin Garrix went on the DM and told the producer who ripped off his unreleased music by saying, “People like you make me never want to play unreleased music ever at my sets anymore. You’re ruining it for the rest.” Garrix also wrote a caption on the same IG Story post where he exclaims his frustration about DJs/producers stealing unreleased tracks and stated that it is “not the first time that’s happening”.
On the same IG story, Martin Garrix uploaded a post where he played chords and melodies from his personal acoustic guitar. Garrix would have used those chords and melodies for a track that he had planned to release on a future date. Unfortunately, other producers also stole those chords and melodies and use them for their own music. In turn, those actions led to the Dutch house superstar to abandon plans to release that track.
The future for Martin Garrix’s unreleased collaborative track with Third Party
Martin Garrix has not disclosed anything about the future of his unreleased collaborative track with Third Party. No one for sure knows what will happen next for this unreleased track, especially since the producer who ripped off the ID of the track actually managed to get Apple Music, YouTube Music and Spotify to approve his music. One can only imagine how Martin Garrix and Third Party were feeling at the exact moment when they found out that someone stole their unreleased music.
