The news was disclosed via Facebook today, in a statement from the Roy family, which explained that Jamie passed away on Tuesday of this week, before describing him as “a much loved and talented son, brother, nephew and uncle… loved by his many friends and colleagues both within the music industry and beyond that. We are all absolutely heartbroken.”

The statement didn’t give any further details surrounding his death or the cause.

The DJ, who’d played at the likes of Pacha, Amnesia and Ibiza Rocks, had announced earlier this month that he was preparing to release “the biggest track of [his] life” with “one of the biggest producers on earth”.

Tributes have been paid to Roy from those in the industry and beyond, with prestigious house label Defected Records stating it was “devastated to hear about the passing of Jamie this morning. “

A great producer, DJ, and friend to so many within our industry,” it added. “Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.”

British producer Paul Woolford, meanwhile, who also uses the aliases Bobby Peru and Special Request, also wrote: “There is nobody like THE Jamie Roy. One in 8 billion. Lit up any room he walked into. An incredible human. Hard to believe it’s true. Say it ain’t so…”
