One of my fond memories of The Echo was when I went to see Disco D spin. He really opened my eyes to the experience of live "booty" house music. I was hanging out with my fellow house-heads at almost every dance night we could find. His performance sticks out in my mind. It was such a fun night. And I even got a poster that I proudly hung up for at least a year in my apartment.
Sadly I learned this week that he committed suicide after a long struggle with depression.
He was a legendary producer. I hope he finally found peace. The music won't be the same without him.
