After dropping from A State Of Trance and Spring Awakening over the past month due to “health issues,” today Dash Berlin frontman Jeffrey Sutorius has explained what exactly has been going on behind closed doors and addressing his social media silence.
As many of you may know, Dash Berlin is actually a trio with Eelke Kalberg and Sebastiaan Molijn, producing, and Sutorius performing DJ sets as the frontman. Well, in a statement from Sutorius shared with the media earlier today, it was revealed that “Dash Berlin” is registered under Molijn and Kalberg and his agency Vanderkleij leaving him, the frontman, out of the equation.
He also mentioned he has been blocked from using all “Dash Berlin” social media outlets during this time.
“Through this statement I inform you that at the end of May I severed my ties with Vanderkleij Agency, Sebastiaan Molijn and Eelke Kalberg (booker and management of Dash Berlin). The reason for ending the relationship is mismanagement in the past several years and neglecting my interests. I recently found out that Molijn and Kalberg together with Vanderkleij Agency registered the name ‘Dash Berlin’ in their own name. I did not realize that as such it might not be possible for me to perform under my Dash Berlin name. I requested my lawyers to put this matter before the court, so that this matter can be resolved. All this has had a negative influence on my health, and I was advised to take it easy. I would have preferred to announce this through my own social media channels. However, after ending the relationship my access to the social media accounts was blocked. I hope that all this can be settled quickly and that I can continue to perform. I love my fans and I hope they will understand.”
