    Alice Glass states that former Crystal Castles manager was “very aware” of her alleged abuse


    Guest

    “Crystal castles” have crumbled in the wake of the Alice Glass‘ allegations of sexual, physical, and psychological abuse against Crystal Castles co-founder, Ethan Kath. Published last week, Alice Glass’ recent statement cited the alleged abuse as the primary motivator in her decision to depart from the band in 2014.

    As Glass’ post continues to circulate, Crystal Castles has witnessed the cancellation of its upcoming tour dates. Crystal Castles’ former manager, James Sandon, was quick to respond to Glass’ accusations against Kath, remarking that the nature of Kath and Glass’ relationship “was never fully clear” to him.

    Glass took to Instagram to reply to Sandon’s comment, countering that Sandon was not only “very aware” of the relationship’s dynamic, but had additionally identified the relationship as “domestic abuse” in several emails, supposedly writing “I’ve had enough of this sh*t.”

    Sharing receipts from a conversation dated five-years prior, Glass wrote “the abuse that I endured was not only physical and mental from Claudio [Kath], but also seen in the negligence of those who were firsthand witnesses and did not speak up. I encourage everyone out there to help anyone that they feel is in an abusive relationship. All it takes is one person.”

    While Glass’ original Instagram post appears to have been removed, Glass additionally posted her response to Sandon on Twitter.

      Hi Kivah, thanks for taking the time to chat!  Where are you right now and what you been up to this month?
      After travelling for the last couple of months non stop, taking the plane literally ten times in one month, I finally am settled back in London and this month I am completely focused on my single release and preparing new songs.
       
      Can you tell us a bit, in your opinion, about the scene where you are located? It is conducive to the artistic/creative lifestyle?
      I think London is one of the best places in the world to be especially for the music and artistic/creative lifestyle. London is so diverse  - you can be in Shoreditch or Camden Town, which are so alternative, and then take a cab to Mayfair and in half an hour you are in a posh private members clubs with quite a mainstream  scene. I just love the diversity of London!
       
      How does it compare to Mallorca?
      Well there are definitely more opportunities in a big city rather than on a small island. Lots of chances to make great contacts, attend events nonstop, network with industry and non- industry people and most importantly the major  artists will be surely playing in London whereas there is no chance to see your favourite artists playing in Mallorca.
       

      What inspired you to get into music?
      I always loved singing. I can’t even remember when  it started. Funny enough my dad reminded me a couple of years ago that when I was like 7 years old I already put my hand in a fist pretending that it was  a mike and was singing and dancing like crazy. I didn’t remember that I just though it all started when I formed my band when I was 15 but seems like it comes from much earlier.
       
      You got in early, being the lead singer and co-founder of “The New Flesh” in your teens, can you tell us a bit about how that came about?
      My first boyfriend was a musician, he played the bass in another band. Then the band disbanded and he suggested that I was the  lead singer, so we formed The New Flesh (we were a bit gothic back then) and that’s how I became singer-songwriter.
       
      We heard you have even recorded tracks for Café Del Mar.  Is this true, and if so, can you tell us more?
      Yes I have been doing some chill out music in the past. I have co-written a song called “Nobody” with the DJ/Producer Luis Junior and recorded “Now We Are Free” the original soundtrack of the movie Gladiator in chill out version. These tracks have been featured in albums like Space Café, Cinema Lounge, Dome Ibiza as well as Luis Juniors album “Neibum” both distributed by Café del Mar.
       
       
      Do you remember what it felt to sing for the first time in front of a crowd? How did you feel, and how well did it go?
      I was excited and nervous at the same time but with the experience and professionalism of my fellow musicians I felt sheltered and everything went great and I ended up having a lot of fun!
       
      You’ve just released a massive tune with MOTi.  How did that come about?
      MOTi  heard my song and loved it! He said he wanted to do the remix! We thought this was a collaboration we couldn’t turn down and let him add his magic to the track and the rest was history as they say!
       
      I’m sure working with MOTi is probably up there, but what would be your biggest achievement in your music career so far?
      My biggest achievement  at the moment is with “All You Sexy Ladies” I think it’s the best record so far as well as setting up my own record label. I am a businesswoman and have set up various businesses in the past so when the opportunity arrived I thought let’s go for it!
       
      What do you personally consider to be the perceptive moments of your artistic career?
      When I decided to be brave and moved firstly to Madrid to continue my musical career on my own as all the other band members were too comfortable in Mallorca but I was always quite ambitious and wanted to achieve more. A whole new experience started there for me in a big city and then later on I have repeated the same change by moving to London chasing the same dream.
       
      You’ve done a lot of modelling and acting in your time, starting from a very young age.  Can you tell us any particular memorable moments in your modelling and acting career that will stick with you for the rest of your life?
      I have many memorable moments especially when shooting commercials but I think one of the proudest  is an eight page reportage in a very popular magazine in Spain called MAN not only because it was a great achievement but also because I have shot this with a dear photographer friend of mine who has passed away suddenly couple of years ago in his hotel room in Mexico. He was such a great photographer and that photo shoot session will be in my heart and memory forever.
       
      What do you listen to in your downtime?
      My taste in music is very eclectic but the last couple of years I have been listening a lot to The Weeknd, his voice just draws me in.
       
      And lastly, what words of wisdom would you pass on to those who are just starting out in the music industry?
      Always believe in yourself, don’t be put off what some people in the industry  tell you, you’re too fat, you’re too thin, you’re too young, you’re too old, your voice is not good enough and so on. When you are passionate about what you do with work, determination and focus you can achieve anything in life!

      MasterClass, the premier online education platform, announced today that legendary DJ Armin van Buuren is teaching his first ever online class. The class is open for pre-enrollment starting today at www.masterclass.com/avb. Enrollment in the class is $90, or $180 per year for unlimited access to all new and existing MasterClasses with the All-Access Pass. Each enrollment option can also be given as a gift.
      Armin van Buuren, one of the most influential figures in the global dance scene, has topped the Billboard charts, attracted tens of millions of worldwide listeners to his weekly radioshow “A State of Trance,” and landed a record-setting five No. 1 DJ awards from DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs. The Grammy-nominated artist’s work has spanned major evolutions in dance music, from spinning with vinyl in small clubs to headlining global dance festivals.
      In his 20th year as an artist, van Buuren will share insights about what it takes to get established in the competitive and ever-changing business of dance music. Students will get an intimate look into the artist’s creative process as van Buuren creates a track from scratch specifically for his MasterClass. Aspiring producers will learn his pillars for becoming a world-class DJ—production, performance, and promotion. The class dives into the more technical aspects of producing, including mixing, arranging, and building dance-worthy drops.
      “Nowadays, to be a successful artist and DJ, it’s not enough to just know how to spin records. If you want to stand out, you need to make your own records, write music, and make remixes and mashups for your DJ sets. I’m truly excited to share my passion for producing music and DJing in my MasterClass,” said Armin van Buuren, MasterClass instructor. “It’s the first time I get to show you my secrets and tips, and everything I’ve learned in my twenty years in this business.”

       
      “Armin is an international icon of dance music. Despite his musical genius, he has stayed humble, hard-working, earnestly connected to his fans, and has never lost sight of the joy in his work. His passion for teaching is infectious. There really is an art and science to making people dance — it has to do with sculpting sound, mixing, and arranging songs for maximum impact — that’s Armin’s mastery, and he’s certainly one of the best to ever do it,” said David Rogier, CEO and Co-Founder of MasterClass.
      MasterClass is an online education company which provides classes from world-renowned instructors, making it possible for anyone to learn from the best. Each class offers a unique learning experience which includes video lessons from the instructor, interactive exercises, course materials, peer interaction, and more. All classes are available online for individual purchase at www.masterclass.com.
