Your Light Shines On - Andrew Weatherall

Devastated, doesn't even come close.

I was just walk back to work after getting my lunch and a I got a call from my partner:

I've got some bad news. Andrew Weatherall has died, Dave Haslam just posted it on Facebook.

I don't know what to think, I'm gutted this guy was a fucking legend he's worked with and remixed everyone.

More than that he's DJ'ed everywhere.

He used to run a free night in The Tea Building every Thursday night in Shoreditch, when it was a dodgy place to go. Now the Tea Building is full of hipsters and Pizza. I'd go every week grab a glass of tap water and dance for 4 hrs.

I could go on listing everything he'd done, but there are sites everywhere telling you that, instead I've just made a playlist.

I was supposed to be seeing him in March at Inner City Electronic and AVA Confernce.

Now I'm just going to feel joy that I saw him at Apollo50 in Goonhilly, perform A Love From Outer Space (ALFOS) with Sean Roberts.

Rest Well my friend Your Light Shines On!
