Eris Drew says she is “lucky” to have only suffered minor injuries after she was involved in a serious car accident while travelling from a festival in Albania to the airport on Saturday.
Another car lost control on the road and crashed into the van she was in. Several vehicles were involved in the accident, causing multiple people injuries.
Drew made it to her next tour stop Oslo and was treated for whiplash and concussion, and is now on her way back from to America after being cleared for travel. She told she will be able to play her scheduled gig at The Bunker Pride in New York this Friday, June 29.
Writing about the incident on , she said: “I was freaked out yesterday. Honestly it is some the most intense fear I have experienced. Someone died in the accident (not my car) and one car was sliced in half. I am lucky. I am going to be fine and my records were recovered despite the impact and gas spurting everywhere. Being trans and injured far away from home is some really triggering stuff.”

Carl Cox has spoken about Avicii’s tragic passing and the pressure he faced, in an interview with BBC Radio 1.
In the wake Avicii’s death earlier this year, Cox called his track, ‘Wake Me Up’, “poignant”, saying “it’s sad to even hear that record now cause in some ways it was a shout for help”.
Cox says Avicii, ‘just wanted to be free to make music’, and that he was “very, very sad” to hear his passing.
He tells the story when he first met the Swedish DJ, when he was supporting him at a street parade in Zurich, and that Avicii thanked him for letting him play before him.
Cox said that he could see Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, was not in control himself but in the “control others who didn’t understand what he was crying out for, that was just to be understood”.
“I saw this flyer, to say that he was playing for I think two months, all over America nearly everyday, and I said to my friends at the time, I said have you seen this? He’s not gonna last half that tour you know, it’s too much, even for a young guy his age, and at the time he was, I think, 23, so pressure was put onto him then, and he died when he was 28, so can you imagine from 23 until 28…”
Cox has spoken before about the gruelling schedules touring DJs these , as well as having detailed to us here at Mixmag his top tips for DJs on how to look after yourself .
