“In the start May 2018, there was a telephone name between my tour supervisor, Eelke, Sebastiaan and Van der Kleij during which they mentioned some upcoming reveals. I used to be within the room once they spoke. My touring supervisor warned them that the touring schedule was too onerous on us. The shouting from the administration and booker in the direction of him was so loud that by even not utilizing speakerphone I might hear it on the opposite finish the room. They advised him to consider the followers we'd be disappointing and the cash we'd be leaving on the desk.”

“All this occurred in opposition to the background questions relating to mismanagement. I saved working right into a wall the place administration and booker weren't open for any talks or discussions. Eventually we deliberate a gathering for the 29th May this 12 months. On the 28th I returned from touring and on 30th May A State Of Trance Poland was on the invoice, a rustic I missed rather a lot, and I have not been to in fairly some time. When my tour-manager and I got here house, the administration cancelled the assembly as a result of they ‘noticed no relevance’ in having such a gathering to debate.”

“This is the place I broke down mentally. I get actually emotional interested by all this. Why do individuals do that to one another? On the day the assembly was deliberate I went to see a physician who recognized me with a burnout and advised me to take a break from touring. One the primary issues I did was name Armin van Buuren notifying him that I simply wasn't capable of carry out on ASOT in Poland. In the weeks that adopted I lastly discovered time to consider all that occurred previously decade, and it got here to me clearly that every one these years I might solely been focussed on my bodily well being, and fully uncared for the psychological influence journey, being away from house for months on finish, a relentless stress to fulfil a killing tour schedule whereas disconnected from family and friends.”

“So this summer season I stayed at house, in The Netherlands, which was experiencing the most well liked summer season ever measured in our nation. Other than that it has been a blurry actuality. I did not shave for months, and the one issues I did was consuming ice cream, watering the crops and strolling my canine. It was one the few issues I might make myself pleased with, in addition to doing nothing and attempting to get out distress and all blackness. Towards the purpose deciding to proceed underneath my very own identify and with attorneys going backwards and forwards, my girlfriend Joyce and I bought the chance to get married. An excellent small, intimate wedding ceremony however on the identical time a brilliant necessary step with my Joyce as my rock behind me, loving and supporting me all the way in which going into the long run.”

“As to my well being now, I feel I get the place I need to be. But this time I'll take care to make it sustainable, and to maintain my life balanced out. Obviously, I've to take care the previous emotionally and financially, however I'm additionally actually trying ahead to connecting with my followers once more.”

“I've repeatedly requested questions relating to the monetary issues Dash Berlin, that are nonetheless unclear to me. All that point, I've not gotten details nor solutions. Eelke, Sebastiaan and Van der Kleij nonetheless are refusing to offer paperwork and data, and are forcing me to take them to courtroom. As an instance, all reserving agreements are in my identify (‘Jeffrey Sutorius as Dash Berlin’) however they refused at hand over these agreements, so the courtroom needed to power them to take action. It additionally appeared that Eelke and Sebastiaan signed a label settlement with out me whereby they gave the label permission to make use of my image, however they by no means advised me about this, nor every other particulars the settlement. The courtroom pressured them to additionally give me that settlement. Another instance is that solely in July 2018 Van der Kleij throughout the courtroom case advised me that he had obtained an enormous quantity – greater than one million (!) – in tax refunds in my identify. They by no means advised me that. I discovered as a result of it was half their submission to the courtroom. I feel that if I had not began the courtroom case, they'd have by no means advised me that and saved the cash for themselves. So I'm piecing collectively all this and different info in order that I could make a reconstruction the previous 10 years and stage a last reckoning.”

“There has already been one courtroom listening to (in July) to date. Seeing that they received’t give me any info, there are two hearings deliberate, each in October. Their entire perspective in the direction of me has been extraordinarily disappointing. So I'm decided to proceed my journey alone as Jeffrey Sutorius. After all, that's who I'm, and who I all the time might be. I miss my followers, and I need to return to the stage. The courtroom stated that we've got to struggle out who can use the Dash Berlin identify in additional proceedings, so utilizing my very own identify was my solely possibility mainly. On the opposite hand, all of the followers are behind me being Dash Berlin. I discover that is one thing price preventing for. I'll proceed this so long as I presumably can to perhaps, finally declare the stage once more as Dash Berlin.”
