World Famous DJ Bassnectar, Management Companies Sued for Human Trafficking and Sexual Abuse

Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan represents two survivors of sexual abuse and child exploitation, other victims urged to come forward

PHILADELPHIA (April 5, 2021) – Today, Philadelphia attorneys Guy D’Andrea, Stewart Ryan, and Alexandria MacMaster of Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan, LLP and Nashville attorney Phillip Miller of Miller Law Offices announce the filing of a lawsuit against Lorin Ashton, an Electronic Dance Music DJ known as Bassnectar, Amorphous Music, Inc., Bassnectar Touring, Inc., Redlight Management, Inc., C3 Presents, L.L.C, and Interactive Giving Fund on behalf of their clients, Rachel Ramsbottom and Alexis Bowling. The plaintiffs were sexually abused as minors by Bassnectar. Bassnectar and various management companies also are accused in the lawsuit of engaging in a human trafficking venture. Bassnectar is also accused of manufacturing and possessing child pornography.

The lawsuit seeks to hold Bassnectar and those corporations that support him responsible for years of grooming, abuse, and trafficking. In June 2020, an Instagram account was created titled @evidenceagainstbassnectar where dozens of young and underage women detailed the ways in which they were victimized by Bassnectar. Other survivors of abuse at the hands of Bassnectar and these corporations are encouraged to come forward and have their voices heard.

“We have seen a true reckoning in recent years of powerful individuals and institutions finally being held to account for years of sexual abuse against adults and minors. But we have only begun to scratch the surface of how these influential figures and entities can go on for years committing abuses without being held responsible,” said attorney Guy D’Andrea. “This lawsuit is about seeking justice not just against Bassnectar but against the corporations that cooperate in and help facilitate the abuses he is alleged to have committed.”

Anyone with information about Bassnectar or who has been victimized themselves can call the law firm’s hotline at 800-220-7600. For more information, contact Guy D’Andrea or Stewart Ryan directly at 800-220-7600, GDAndrea@laffeybucci.com, or sryan@laffeybucci.com.
