DJ Jeffrey Sutorius reveals he’s no longer able to perform under ‘Dash Berlin’ alias

Dash Berlin is nothing without Jeffrey Sutorius.

The face, front man and DJ of Dash BerlinJeffrey Sutorius has revealed he’s currently not able to perform under the much-loved alias, due to legal issues with ex group members and management.

Dash Berlin was the Dutch Trance collective consisting of Jeffrey Sutorius, Sebastiaan Molijn and Eelke Kalberg, contributing to the international dance scene for well over a decade.

A press-release from Jeffrey Sutorius explained: “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.”

The legendary DJ also stated that he preferred to announce the news through the Dash Berlin social media channels, but since ending the groups relationship, he’s been blocked from accessing those social media accounts.

The world of Trance was introduced to the sounds of Dash Berlin in 2007 with the breakthrough single ‘Till The Sky Falls Down’. The track shot to the top of the Trance charts worldwide and was hammered at every single Trance event and every radio show across the globe.

Dash Berlin continued to build a collection of ultimate anthems in the years that followed, capturing the hearts of global fans with hits including ‘Waiting’ and ‘Disarm Yourself’ with Emma Hewitt, ‘Man On The Run’ with Cerf, Mitiska & Jaren, ‘Better Half Of Me’ and ‘World Falls Apart’ with Jonathan Mendelsohn, ‘Apollo Road’ with ATB and many more.

After a period of silence away from the Trance scene to explore other genre’s, Jeffrey Sutorius was set to return to the A State Of Trance stage in Poland to perform a much-anticipated Trance Classic set, but cancelled the appearance due to “health concerns.” With Jeffrey’s latest statement, we can confirm it was due to not being a registered owner of the DJ name. We really do hope it can be settled soon.

Dash Berlin is nothing without Jeffrey Sutorius.

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.”
