DJ Snake, Tchami cancel dates after car accident

28th October 2015, Comments 0 comments

Two leading French electronic music producers, DJ Snake and Tchami, canceled upcoming tour dates Wednesday after they were involved in a car accident.

The two DJs' manager was driving the pair when they crashed on Tuesday, the artists said in identical statements.

"Due to injuries sustained as well as their doctor's orders, they will not be able to travel until further notice in order to recover properly," the statement said.

Their management did not elaborate further, but the injuries were said to be non-life-threatening.

The location of the crash was not specified either, although DJ Snake was scheduled to perform Wednesday in Las Vegas.

DJ Snake scored a number one hit in much of the world this year with "Lean On," a melancholy electronic song recorded with the group Major Lazer and Danish singer Mo.

DJ Snake got his start in suburban Paris as a rapper but has made much of his career in Los Angeles and notably worked on Lady Gaga's hit 2011 album "Born This Way."

Snake had a busy set of shows ahead of him. In dates now thrown into doubt, he was scheduled to start a tour of India on November 6 before dates in Australia, Indonesia and New Zealand.

Tchami has also worked with Lady Gaga and is known for house music remixes of songs by popular artists including Janet Jackson.

Tchami had been scheduled to DJ at Halloween-themed bashes near Chicago on Friday and in Toronto on Saturday.
