Konstantin and Giegling Under Fire for Recent Sexist Comments

Today the Twittersphere, as well as other social networks, were busy weighing in on one of the articles that appeared in the latest print edition of Groove Mag.

The excerpt in question is straight to the point. The writer of the article meets Konstantin on a train directed toward Leipzig where the Giegling artist was set to perform, and it is there that the conversation turns into a discussion about feminism and the role of women in the electronic music industry.

Konstantin’s comments surprise the reporter, “[he] expresses himself surprisingly fiercely. He finds it unfair that female DJs are so heavily promoted, although they are in his opinion usually worse at DJing than men are.”

See the full excerpt below, as well as the original German print edition of the piece.
