Mental health is finally becoming less taboo to be discussed in the dance music industry. After the tragic death of Avicii, artists have begun to get more vulnerable about the inner workings of their mind. Ekali has been open and transparent about his life since he first broke onto the scene. Today though, he took things to a new level by revealing a major part of his life that his fans did not know before.

Ekali shared that after accidentally ingesting laced drugs he developed an intense disassociative based anxiety order. He goes on to explain that it is important to end the stigma around mental health as well as the importance of reaching out for help.

While Ekali is producing some of the most exciting music in the industry, it is moments like this that demonstrate just how important his impact as a whole is for both fans and artists alike.
