Delete, a renowned producer and DJ of hard dance, has tragically passed away. He was 30 years old.
The hard dance artist, whose real name is Ryan Biggs, was producing music for over a decade. He had early releases as far back as 2010 and throughout his career would go on to share music on revered hard dance imprints like Scantraxx, End of the Line Recordings, and his own label Spoontech Records.
According to Yahoo News Australia, Biggs was found dead at his home in the Netherlands where has lived for the past nine years. There is no cause of death at this time.
Biggs’ family has started a GoFundMe to raise money for funeral costs, which as of now has raised more than double the initial goal.
“Ryan left Australia to follow his dreams as a DJ and producer in the hardstyle scene, and didn’t he make a name for himself. It’s been so hard for us with Ryan on the other side of the world, but we have watched his successes and we’re so proud of him,” wrote Biggs’ step mother Annmaree Biggs in the GoFundMe page. “For the last few years it has been tough on Ryan with the lockdowns and mental health issues but he gave it everything he had for his fans. Let’s now do right by Ryan. Please help us get Ryan aka “Delete” back to his family and home where he can rest in peace.”
