Bassnectar Allegations

2021-04-11 by Rolling Girl | 34 Comments
American DJ Lorin Ashton, more commonly known as Bassnectar, has been accused of manipulative and predatory behavior with minors. The lawsuit also claims that companies which the DJ has worked with including Redlight Management, C3 Presents, his record label, touring company, and the charity, Interactive Giving Fund, were complicit or participated from these incidents.

Mitchell Schuster, the attorney representing Ashton has responded saying: “These outrageous claims - which were clearly designed for the media, rather than for the courts - are completely without merit, and we eagerly look forward to proving so.”

I never followed the EDM scene before until. But a lot of my coworkers started talking about this recently. So who knows why this didn't come sooner

Yes the "Sputnikmusic Defense" is a well respected legal practice. If that doesn't work we can throw him in a lake to see if he drowns or not.

I never really thought about it before but I suppose it stands to reason that a scene where everyone is constantly melting their brains into goo with inhibition-lowering substances would attract a lot of people willing to take advantage of that fact :/

By far the most striking thing about live EDM is how much gross predatory behavior is happening on both sides of the stage.

Who thought doing ecstacy in a crowd full of naked, gyrating strangers could go wrong?
