Just going through bits and bobs and it’s just incredible how much ‘forgotten’ music he resuscitated, alongside pushing some amazing new sounds.

Lets have your faves as a tribute.

Just woken to the news. Tragic.

The amount of amazing music I’ve discovered through the RLR/MFM crew.

The Outro Tempo comps are ace as are all the Suzo Sais albums. Everything on MFM is top drawer can’t pick a favourite.

Really shocking. He’ll always be a musical hero of mine, based on how much he unearthed, gave voice to, and revived over the years – across mixes, gigs, and label releases. What a force.

There’s so much out there to enjoy, but two mixes sprung to mind when I heard the news:

Rest in peace, legend.

So much good stuff. A man of great taste. Hard to pick specific pieces amongst an incredible roster of artists and reissues. Things like the Heisei No Oto/Leftfield Japanese Pop summed it up for me: amazing tunes from scenes I had zero idea about.

His NTS shows were absolutely gold. I would shamlessly try and Shazam every track he played. Of course I would never find any. A unique talent that will be sorely missed

Here is a particular good one
