Jeffrey Sutorius was born in November 1979 in The Hague, The Netherlands. While in high school he became a fan of electronic music and in his late teens worked in a record store and became a collector of vinyl trance music. Inspired by pioneering figures such as Sven Vath, Oliver Lieb and Sander Kleinenberg, Sutorius began mixing and producing his own music. He started performing in the Dutch underground music scene in early 2006 and within a year teamed up with fellow producers and close friends Kalberg and Molijn to form Dash Berlin.
The breakthrough for Dash Berlin comes in early 2007 with “Till the Sky Falls Down”. The track shoots straight to the top of the Trance charts worldwide, due in part to Armin van Buuren who included it on the third chapter of his acclaimed “Universal Religion” mix album. Van Buuren subsequently signed Dash Berlin to the Armada Music label.
In early 2009 plans emerge to expand the Dash Berlin influence with his own label called “Aropa.” The first release under the new label is “Man on the Run”, a collaboration with fellow Armada artists Cerf, Mitiska, & Jaren. The track rocketes to the top of the international Trance charts and receives a nomination for ‘Best Trance Track’ at the annual Trance Awards.
October 2009 brings the global release of Dash Berlin’s critically acclaimed debut album, “The New Daylight”, which containes the hits, “Till the Sky Falls Down”, “Man on the Run”, “Waiting” and “Never Cry Again”. A world tour followes beginning in January 2010 in Australia. He deejays all over the world and debuts at big events like 'Trance Energy' in Utrecht, 'A State Of Trance 450' in Bratislava and Dance Valley in Spaarnwoude.
In March 2010 Dash Berlin releases his first official DJ mix, double CD album entitled, “United Destination”. Dash remixes the track and the music video of 'Not Giving Up On Love' by the then number 1 DJ in the world Armin van Buuren, featuring the vocals of Sophie Ellis-Bextor, who is an English singer, songwriter, model and occasional DJ. Another Dash Berlin remix gets delivered for Danish singer Medinafor her track 'You and I' which is an English version of the Danish song, "Kun for mig", released in late 2008 in Denmark, where it spent 52 weeks on the singles chart; six weeks at number one making it the best selling single of 2009 in Denmark.
The follow up to 'United Destination is released in 2011 called; "United Destination 2011" making it an annual concept. UD2011 includes two previously unreleased Dash Berlin tracks; the Dash Berlin 4AM Remix of 'Till The Sky Falls Down' and the single 'Earth Hour', from which Dash Berlin donated the proceeds to WNF. The official Dash Berlin Earth Hour video contains quotes from Hollywood actor Edward Norton and the 'I Am Only A Child' speech by human rights activist Severn Suzuki.
In 2011 Dash Berlin reunites with Emma Hewitt on the track 'Disarm Yourself'. The music video is shot in Australia just weeks before disaster strikes. Dash Berlin and Emma Hewitt donate the proceeds of the single to the Flood Relief Fund in Australia. He remixes the track 'A&E' by UK indie band 'Morning Parade' for Parlophone Records, the UK label behind artists such as 'The Beatles', 'Coldplay' and 'The Chemical Brothers'. Dash Berlin collaborates with German Trance DJ ATB on the instrumental track 'Apollo Road' and they perform the track together as a surprise act during an ATB concert in Poland, where the music video was shot. The single 'Better Half Of Me' features the vocals of New York City-based singer Jonathan Mendelsohn and is accompanied by Dash Berlin's most expensive music video so far. After the release of the 'Better Half Of Me Video' music video, Dash Berlin releases another bonus music video, this time with an acoustic piano version of the song.
