DJ/producer i_o — born Garrett Falls Lockhart — has died. The artist passed on Monday (November 23) at the age of 30.

The news of his death was confirmed via his social media channels last night. So far, no cause of death has been revealed.

"This extremely talented spirit taught us that even if nothing matters, you can still lead with love," the note reads. "Garrett's truth and soul lives on through the music he shared. Rest in peace, Garrett. We Love you."

Lockhart had previously released music through deadmau5's Mau5trap label and is known for collaborating with Grimes. The pair worked together on her Miss Anthropocene song "Violence."

"Going to miss you my dude, it was a real pleasure working with you and watching you succeed..." deadmau5 wrote in a tribute. "May you find rest, and let your music live on into eternity."

Earlier this year, the producer started his own imprint, Label 444, around the time that he signed with Armin van Buuren's Armada Music.
