Jeffrey Sutorius, the frontman of Dash Berlin, revealed that he is currently undergoing legal battles with his DJ name in a recent press release. According to Sutorious, his former managers, booking agent, and agency have registered the Dash Berlin name and imprint as their own. Since uncovering this, Sutorius has severed ties with the aforementioned business partners and has been locked out of his social media accounts as a result.
Sutorius has cited this struggle to the detriment of his health both physically and mentally as he lawyers up to legally combat the use of the Dash Berlin name.
Read his full statement:
“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.” -Dash Berlin
