DNS troubles

I switched DNS servers 2 days ago, because my ISP was having troubles with their server. So I entered Googles DNS settings in my router. Internet has been running smooth, but I seem to be getting the 'No Internet Connection' error in the Spotify App constantly. I was only getting the error at home and not at work.

 

After reinstalling the app (didn't work), I decided to switch back to the old DNS settings in my router. And voila.. the troubles were gone.

 

I would like to use another DNS service because the one my ISP supplies is really unstable, but I want to be able to use the app on my phone!

 

Anyone have any idea what went wrong? I live in the Netherlands, so my first guess would be the fact that using  a DNS service outside of my country was causing the troubles.

 

I'm using a HTC M9 with 5.1.1.
