PLEASE. DANCE. SAFE...
If you’re a follower of Eric Prydz on Facebook, you would’ve seen this message go out overnight from the Swedish star: "We were all deeply saddened by the tragic events from this weekend. Please be careful out there and party safely and responsibly."
Those tragic events unfolded at London concert venue Alexandra Palace on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th November, with two young men pronounced dead within seven hours of each other. One 21-year-old is reported to have attended the UKF Bass Culture event headlined by Chase & Status on Friday, while the second male was reportedly at the Prydz-headlined Together Winter Music Festival on Saturday. A third man remains in the intensive care unit of a North London hospital in a "serious but stable" condition.
As reported by The Telegraph, it is suspected "a more-potent Chinese variant" of ecstasy contributed to the deaths. However, a toxicology report is still pending. "Although it is too early to say what caused these men’s health to deteriorate, we are investigating the possibility that illegal drugs may have been involved," Detective Inspector Rita Tierney of the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.
