Legendary DJ Peter Rauhofer, Dead at 48

By  |  0 Comments

The official Peter Rauhofer Facebook page posted a note on May 7 informing fans of the DJ that he has lost his recently revealed battle with a large brain tumor and died earlier today in New York City. The legendary electronic dance music (EDM) producer has worked with every one including Pet Shop Boys, Madonna, Rihanna and Cher. His manager had revealed last month that Peter was in the hospital after suffering a seizure. Doctors discovered an undiagnosed brain tumor at that time.

His manager posted, “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 themselves.”

Fans across the globe are taking to social media to express their love for Peter Rauhofer and their support for his family and friends.
