Gesaffelstein pays tribute to Paris in powerful moment of silence
In the wake of Friday’s Paris terror attacks that left more than 100 dead, countless DJs from the electronic music community – French or not – publicly responded to the devastating news. Kill Paris, for example, announced yesterday that he would change his name to Chill Harris out of respect for France’s tragedy. DJ Snake, Martin Solveig, Mercer, and others took to Twitter to express both their sadness and support for their home country.

But Gesaffelstein paid tribute to France differently. Following a performance at San Francisco’s 1015 Folsom on Friday evening, the techno mainstay offered a powerful moment of silence, asking his fans to join him through a sequence of hand gestures. Watch above as Gesaffelstein raises his arm in honor of Paris, with the crowd following suit by chanting in unison, “vive la France.”
