Electronic Dance Music legend Dash Berlin, a trio who released exotic remixes, announces Dash Berlin split. Recently, Jeffrey Sutorius, the front face, issued a statement stating that he has parted ways from the other two members leading to Dash Berlin split.
The controversy is, purely stated by him, missing and canceling out his recent shows at Spring Awakening and the A State of Trance 850, signed on Armin Van Buuren’s label. Jeffrey initially stated health issues for his cancellation of shows. Dash Berlin’s slot, at the Spring Awakening, was replaced with that of Zedd.
Dash Berlin consists of Eelke Kalberg, Jeffrey Sutorius and Sebastian Molijn. While Jeff performs at the shows, the other two are behind the group’s productions and visuals.

Jeff tried to settle things down in this matter as much as possible. His access to Dash Berlin Social Media handles was blocked. He found this out when he tried reaching out to his fans through social media.
“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 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 also took the matter to court with the help of his lawyer, with no encouraging feedback. It is uncertain, whether he would find another stage name to perform or if he would join another troop.
Dash Berlin made hits in the industry with their uplifting and inspiring tracks. They pushed themselves in the mainstream with Armin’s label ‘A State of Trance’.
