    you can be happy on the outside, but total unhappy, depressed on the inside, which nobody could see.

    thats actual that what is written on wikipedia and also the documentary mentioned also suicide.

    Indeed, we should all know this very well by now. :bleh:

    Reminds me of some verses from My Bloody Valentine's song Drive It All Over Me.
    Cover up your windows
    Close up all the doors
    Time has come for me to really shine
    Pick myself up off the floor
    Things that'll make yourself cry
    Can be tied above the well
    Helplessly withering away
    But I'll never ever tell

    Run, run away, run, run away
    'Cause there's nothing left to say
    Got no one to talk to
    Leave me alone, I'm happy to die today
    Run, run away, run, run away
    'Cause there's nothing left to say
    Oh, the travel always gets me
    Get in the car and drive it all over me
    Honestly, I was destroyed when I found out about his death. I had even made fun of him in the forums and felt like a total asshole, me and my big mouth. Reminds me that we should always be kind to each other because you never know what someone could be going through. If I had known and had a way to contact him, I would've done something to prevent it. I've had quite a few friends throughout the years that I stopped from making a terrible mistake and I would've been that kind of friend for him too. What a terrible way to die. Imagine if he was so depressed, what are the rest of us that aren't rich and in the same situation (or worse) supposed to do? :unsure:

    To all those that are gone but never forgotten:


    At last the dark years of grieving come to an end
    Old haunts and habits invoking loved ones and friends
    The graveyards forgotten, the churches are empty now
    I recall the times past and how much I miss you all

    Wake up! Reborn! Join in and celebrate!
    Make noise! Wake up the great dead with reverence
    On all hallow's eve

    Endless drumming; rituals to wake up the dead
    Bring gifts and spirits, good wine- just cheese and some bread
    Incense of cigars and spices, pleasures we shared
    Light up the graveyards to show how much we all care

    Wake up! Reborn! Join in and celebrate!
    Make noise! Wake up the great dead with reverence
    On all hallow's eve
    :blues:

    How could I forget them! :facepalm: Played a lot of 3SA tracks in my gigs during my gabber/hardcore period.
    Thanks for the adds.
    About Sophie Xeon / Sophie; now he/she is mentioned, I did actually read some news messages recently including the cause of death. "Accidentally slipped and fell while climbing to watch the full moon." That's just horrible. (each death is of course, but still, this sounds so harmless)

    If it weren't for him (Primal Scream, 2 Lone Swordsmen and Sabres of Paradise) my life would have taken an entirely different path.

    I can't wait for the tribute record to finish downloading (just got it now, give it a minute)

    Here is some addition I just remember :

    Didier Maurin / Didier Sinclair (more a DJ than producer, but he play a big role in the early 90s French scene) : 1965-2008 (cancer)
    Pascal Dardoufas / Pascal FEOS : 1968-2020 (cancer)
    Paul Walden / Guru Josh : 1964-2015 (suicide)


    @D-Music is it possible to update your list at the begining of this thread with all the new name ? This will be easier to search when we want to add new name :)

    Also, should we include all "pre DJ era" producers, like guys from Kraftwerk and other early electronic band/musicians ?


    I want to say that this thread is great, but it's a bit sad because of the subject, but it's a good way to find out who we lost, there's some name I didn't know or completly forget they were not here anymore
