James Murphy was scheduled to be the special surprise DJ to close out the Selectors stage at Dekmantel last weekend but it looks like something serious came up at the last minute. 😢

Coming up this weekend, he was also booked to perform with Soulwax for their Despacio experience at Meltdown this weekend… and unfortunately couldn’t make that one either. Dang. This is the soundsystem he helped create.

Hope it’s nothing too serious. ❤️
