Dutch group Dash Berlin continued their winning form of hit singles this year, releasing the euphoric EDM track ‘Save Myself’ — a collaboration with DBSTF and vocalist Josie Nelson — in February through Armada. Meanwhile, DJ gigs whisked frontman Jeffrey Sutorius off to Chicago, Miami and Guangzhou, China.
Dash Berlin were originally a trio comprising producers Eelke Kalberg and Sebastiaan Molijn, and DJ Jeffrey Sutorius, but 2018 has been a year of change. Sutorius left this October to pursue a solo career, with Kalberg and Molijn continuing under the moniker. The producers are currently working on a new album, which they say, “will shape the future of our project Dash Berlin”, while Jeffrey carves out a fresh career under his real name.
