In another example of just how important Social Media can be for artists, Aussie DJ delight Alison Wonderland has added her comments to the ever growing debate about the health of DJs and the impact of life on the road and in the air.

Umm.. Off”.
With recent admissions from artists including Benga, Sasha, Avicii and most recently Ben Pearce that the lifestyle has ultimately led to serious and complex health issues is it time that managing agents and labels started to take the well-being of their stars into greater consideration?
