International DJ Peter Rauhofer Dies


Recently it was announced on his Facebook page, that international DJ Peter Rauhofer was battling a brain tumor. Sadly, he has passed,  according to a new message posted on his Facebook page by his manager, Angelo Russo:

Today the music industry has lost one of it’s true heroes.

With a heavy heart I must now report that Peter Rauhofer has lost his battle with brain cancer.

He passed quietly today and is survived by his mother, Helga, who resides in Austria.

She will transport Peter back home to his
final resting place there, but to all that knew Peter, his heart will
always be in New York City.

It makes me sad, not only that I have
lost a friend, but that the world has lost an amazing talent and that
future generations will never get to understand the magic that Peter
created night after night all over the world.

He is gone too soon but we will always have the vast body of music that Peter left for us.

Through his music, Peter will live
forever. The brightest stars always burn out too soon. Peter, you were
loved and you will be terribly missed. Goodbye my friend. Please rest in
peace knowing that you have brought so much joy to so many of us. I ask
that his true fans keep his legacy alive by sharing his music with
anyone who may not have had the opportunity to experience it for

Rauhofer was 48.

Our thoughts go out to his friends and family.
