Forbes confirms Marshmello’s true identity in cover story

DJ/Producer Marshmello has taken the electronic music scene by storm two short years after making his debut performance. The producer is famed for his anonymity thanks to his iconic helmet

For years the electronic music community has tried to coerce his identity out of him but Marshmello has stuck to his guns by steadfastly refusing to give up his identity as well as playing a prank or two on fans about it—like that time he had Tiesto pretend to reveal himself as Marshmello at EDC Vegas.

While the community was smart enough to determine that Tiesto was indeed NOT the famed producer, there has been increased speculation that Marshmello is Chris Comstock, otherwise known as Dotcom. This is thanks to Skrillex calling Marshmello “Chris” in an interview along with a discovery that Marshmello and Dotcom had the same exact tattoo.

Thanks to a recent Forbes article, we now may have the final substantiation needed to 100% confirm that Marshmello is indeed Chris Comstock/Dotcom. Forbes published a royalty monitor for Marshmello’s newest single “Silence,” which lists Comstock as the only songwriter on the track aside from Khalid. “Marshmello” is not credited anywhere.

For his part, the producer used his Twtitter account to address the Forbes publication, saying:

I don’t take my helmet off because I don’t want or need fame. I’m genuinely trying to create something positive for people to connect with

The helmet makes me marshmello and also makes you marshmello…we are all marshmello

— marshmello (@marshmellomusic) August 6, 2017

While we love a good mystery, we’ll consider this the final bit of proof to call this a closed case.
