  1. So shocked. Children, Fable, One & One and Freedom were all ace.

  4. Children and One and One still get regular plays by me.

    Trying to compile a 1996 compilation I was actually playing Children and One & One this weekend. Creepy.
    Between all the happy hardcore and eurodance I quite enjoyed his 'dreamhouse' at the time. No idea what he went on to do since though.
  7. How sad. One & One is one of my favourite tracks of all time, and of course Children is a classic

  8. I've got his albums from later in the 90s, and early 00s. Some really good stuff, actually.

  9. I had no idea who that was but when I searched that Children song, instantly recognized it. Everyone knows that song. His work will live on.

  10. I always had issues with the maths in 'One & One', but those songs were part of the soundtrack of 20 years ago. Sad news.

  11. Oh man, this really made me sad. I know Children was his big hit but it's all about Freedom for me:

    How crazy that he and Frankie are both gone now...RIP.
  12. Unbelievable.

    Remember "Fable"?

    I wonder what type of cancer he had.

    Another tremendous talent lost. Christ.
  13. So nineties it hurts.

  14. I preferred One & One.
    So it was cancer?
  15. It nearly always is now. Terrible waste of life.
  16. I'm very sad about this. I hadn't played Children in years, but it meant a lot to me as I discovered it when I was coming of age, so it's very evocative of that time.

    Rest in peace.

  17. One and One is such a great record.
  18. I read this early today on BBC News. He was two months younger than me.
    "Children" was a great chill out tune!
