For me, as well as all the above, he is also the epitome of someone who absorbed the best aspects of industrial music/occulture and not the dickhead shitty bits.

A sad loss, but maybe tempered by the fact that I think he must have known he was appreciated - for what he did and not some stupid celebrity nonsense.

Darned cockwombles.
bloodsugar 5 and hypercity are the ones. effortless dubby minimal house (way before that became a dirty word.) Dude was so ahead of the curve.
forgot all about hypercity. that era was great, something good to come out of the (very) late 90s

He's someone I've been vaguely aware of for years, but whom I've never listened to or looked into. Got the essential mix roiling now.

what did you think of this? have listened to it about 5 times since this thread. it's rare that i listen to mixes at all these days, let alone 5 times. absolutely love it.

got this one from 3 years earlier playing now https://soundcloud.com/nick-van-roosbroeck-1/andrew-weatherall-essential

also pretty good. much more varied in styles and rough around the edges but in a very tasty and trippy way. early 90s dance was often so psychedelic
