After a couple of festival cancellations and not making an appearance at Exchange LA last weekend, the electronic dance music fans across the globe began to grow worried about Dash Berlin and his health. However, following a statement released by frontman Jeffrey Stuorius, we now know the truth behind his recent absences.
For those who may not know, Stuorius is one of three members who make up Dash Berlin. He is the frontman who performs the DJ sets while Sebastiaan Molijn and Eelke Kalberg spend their time in the studio. However, this will no longer be the case going forward. The future of Dash Berlin is uncertain and Jeffrey Stuorius will no longer associate with the group, avid electronic music fans now have the truth.
Read the official statement below:
“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.” – Jeffrey Sutorius (Dash Berlin)
