At 20 years old, Martin Garrix has accomplished more than most humans will accomplish in a lifetime. He's worked his way through the ranks of his producer/DJ peers to headline the largest music festivals in the world. A year ago, he started his own label and signed successful artists, and now, he's taking over a famed Amsterdam recording studio and turning it into his own label headquarters.
STMPD RCRDS will takeover FC Walvisch in Amsterdam, a spot used by international superstars Pharrell Williams, Lady Gaga, Snoop Dogg, and others. The space is renown for its high-end equipment and creative atmosphere. Garrix intends to turn the space into “the place in Amsterdam where writers, musicians and producers from all over the world can get together to create amazing music in an inspiring environment,” according to a press release.
The studio will be renamed STMPD recording studios and will get a full facelift, although the facilities will remain state of the art. The FC Walvisch team will remain in place at STMPD recording studios and continue its work in the commercial and film industry, for which it became famous.
