Ten Walls was due to perform alongside Solomun, Nicole Moudaber, Jeremy Underground and other talented DJs at the Circoloco party at DC10 this weekend in Ibiza, but a strong opposition to the booking prompted the club to drop him from the lineup.
As soon as prominent members in the industry, including Pearson Sound, Seth Troxler, Midland, Ellen Allien and others, found out about Ten Walls being booked at such a respected event as Circoloco, there was a major backlash with many questioning why the disreputable producer was booked in the first place. Ten Walls is of course now known for his disgraceful homophobic rant, where he called homosexuals “people of other breed." The outrage from the public was so strong that once the backlash was felt by the promoters, Ten Walls was dropped from the lineup and everything seemed to be back to normal.
Now, in response to being dropped from the lineup, Ten Walls has responded in respectful fashion, saying his thanks to the promoters for thinking to book him in the first place, and thanking fans for their support. He reminded his loyal following that he will never give up on "creating and performing" and we should look for much more from him in the near future.
You can read his full response below:
"First of all I would like to say thanks to Circoloco for the invitation. However, my performance was canceled, as a number of DJ’s refused to play on the same stage with me. I do understand the pressure Circoloco has experienced and support their decision. Disappointments and anger won’t find place in my life. I will never give up creating and performing my music, that has been everything to me, since I was 5 years old.
Keep it up and see you all equalized in upcoming gigs. Peace / TW"
It's been over a year since the initial homophobic rant, and since then Ten Walls has been steadily attempting a comeback. He went on tour and released a new EP this year, but it looks like many in the industry ares still not yet ready to accept him back. We will be keeping a watchf
