In addition, the record label he runs, Firepower Records, issued a statement that the dj has stepped down from running the label. In addition, for the time being the Datsik has canceled all upcoming shows.

The following are statements from both the artists as well as the various businesses he was partnered with:

Circle Talent gave the following quote to Billboard:

“In light of recent allegations, Circle Talent Agency, effective immediately, has severed all ties with Datsik,”

In addition, Deckstar issued the following statement also to Billboard:

“In light of recent allegations that have come forth, we have decided to sever our relationship with Datsik at this time. Although we lack concrete information to confirm or deny these allegations, the nature and volume of the accusations demand swift and decisive action. We have always held ourselves and clients to the highest standards and believe that at this time it is in the best interest of our company and staff to move on.”

Datsik also made the following post on Twitter before making his account private:

“Yo everyone. This is a very serious matter to me. There have been recent allegations against me for things I have not done. I am a vibe reader. I hand out with a ton of people after every show, and always keep a positive vibe. I would never bend anyone against their will and I mean that sh*t. I’m an adult, I’ve seen and been thru it all. But these claims are shaking me to the core. The type of sh*t is detrimental to my persona as I truly take pride in being myself and being honest. I want everyone to know that I am being the best Datsik I can, as well as being the best Troy I can be. You should know that tour is a safe and f*cking rad zone for us all. It really breaks my heart when people feel upset at the end of the day because I am a good person and would never take advantage of anyone. Let me be straight up. I don’t condone that kind f behavior and I care about every single person that I meet, on the real. I know this is a sensitive subject and I am also a sensitive dude, so please say what u must but honestly I want u to know that this sh*t means the world to me. This is my life and my passion as I know it. I care so much about my fans and my music and what you all think of me. I will make a bigger effort to make sure that nothing I do will be misinterpreted in the future.”

Lastly, Bais Haus announced that he will carry on with their Ephwurd parnership by himself:
