The sun was shining in more ways than one during our first interview with Jeffrey Sutorius. The former Dash Berlin frontman was in a meeting of many firsts as it was Jeffrey’s first time attending Amsterdam Dance Event and apparently, the first sunny day in the history of ADE ever! Jeffrey summarized it perfectly with one simple word “Sunny.”
Sutorius has been on a rebranding campaign under his real name “Jeffrey Sutorius,” after he allegedly was locked out of the group for taking an unauthorized extensive personal leave from the production and touring.
The newly married DJ and producer, voiced that he’s finally ready to begin touring again. In fact, he’s already began releasing new music under his new name, but he also dropped a major hint that maybe the Dash Berlin project may not be entirely over just yet!
Only time will tell if and when Jeffrey might return to the Dash Berlin group, but for now he emphasizes that it’s “all about Jeffrey Sutorius.”
Jeffrey wanted to assure his fans that going solo wouldn’t impact his productions in the least, he said we should expect the same level of style and quality as his Dash Berlin releases.
Jeffrey also shared some details over the fallout between him and his former Dash Berlin colleagues.
The topic of artist ‘burnout’ is not lost on us in dance music community. We lost a beloved Dance Music icon, Avicii, earlier this year. And at least two other high profile DJs are actively on “break” from touring due to the grueling EDM DJ lifestyle.
But unfortunately for Jeffrey, things did not go as smoothly as they did for other DJs. But despite all the drama in the last few months, Jeffrey has reenergized, and he’s eager to get back on stage and reconnect with his fans again.
