Yes very sad news, I saw him play a few times. TBH I would expect this to become more regular now, the DJ lifestyle is far from healthy and some of these guys are in their 50s now.

I saw someone say it was a heart attack.

Yes, unfortunately i think you're right Edd. Constant nights is a strain on the body as it is, let alone travel junk food etc...and that is just for the clean living guys.

Terrible shame though.

Spot on, Ed.

As mentioned before, I do think there's a cut-off age when it comes to DJ'ing as you will just look foolish BUT you've nailed it there with the health reasons.

Marcus seemed like a healthy chap as he was ALWAYS playing golf. But when you DJ's in there latte 40's hammering the pills, powder and booze EVERY weekend since the 90's and their body clock is all over the place you start to think "how long till his body has enough and packs up?" What gets me is that the very elite DJ's who travel the world must be full of inflammation and always ill. Even doing one end of the country to the other can be brutal.

I genuinely think that if you have any sense at all then your health is your No.1 priority. People LOVE to give it all that "you only live once" when they smash the drugs etc, but what a way to waste it. And when you're on your deathbed you will regret it. Going off one one there but health is a big thing for me.

Also, Marcus was a FANTASTIC DJ as well as producer. I highly recommend his Fabric mix. Quality all around. He will be sorely missed.

The thing about Marcus is he really didn't make any bad tunes and whilst he always kept his production fresh, his vibes were always proper old skool. He's one of the very few OJ's who never fell off. What a loss!

Horrible news. Always sad when a fellow dnb head passes. RIP. Tune up top is bangin btw.

To restless1, health definitely does come first, but I have heard stories of people who party their entire lives and live until 90, or a person who never so much as touched a beer or cigarette and developed cancer. I believe it is lifestyle choices, but also genetics, luck of the draw.

Yeah, deffo luck of the draw.

I know people right now that are ABUSING their bodies with drink, heroin etc and they are walking around right as rain! And they've been doing it for years too.

Pretty sure it was heart related.
