Corey Baker, better known as DJ/producer Kill Paris, has announced he will be changing his stage name indefinitely in light of the Paris attacks last Friday.
He revealed the news via his artist Facebook page, writing: "While there is tragedy everywhere, every day, and every person has their own, the events in Paris yesterday have made me feel that my name as an artist is not appropriate anymore.
"What my music stands for is love and peace, and I hope my fans know that. Moving forward, I do not want people to get the wrong idea about me and my music just because I’ve gone under a particular pseudonym. I am dropping my old moniker and will now use the name Chill Harris," Baker concluded.
Most fans have been supportive of the move via social media, though Baker hasn't revealed the full extent of how the name change will impact his past/future releases and upcoming gigs.
