DJ Angus R.I.P.
It's with great regret and a heavy heart that i post this. No details have emerged yet, other than he was found this morning at home. I think everyone i know has an Angus story; some funny some sad, and as troubled as he was he was still a good guy who had a real passion for music, and contributed massively to the history of the Brisbane scene.

Woah! From that first time I stepped inside the Beat in 1993, and heard his *incredible* scratching, as a DJ, Angus has always been a massive inspiration to me! Sad indeed.

Thats the saddest news I've heard in a very long time. Angus was an absolute champ. One of my fondest memories of Angus was having a gym session with him and my mate one time at the old Toowong fitness. Brisbane and Australia has lost one of its founding fathers for Dance Music and DJing

Angus R.I.P my friend

I was gutted when I got the call today -- old friend we had some fun. The road trip to Technofear for one.

So many great memories from those 'formative' years. I loved your music and your mix.

You will always be one of the good souls

Respect.

My thoughts are with Angus' family at this tragic loss.

I always remember one of my high school ex's saying how she knew Angus and thought he was the bomb. Strangely enough, I never saw him spin.

Total fucking bummer!

A mate just msged me:

'he could scratch like a one armed taxi driver with crabs'

He gave it all away. When he mixed he was at the very top of the world, and on the dance floor he delightedly gave it all away to us.
To me that's why he is a great DJ.

Peace in da middle east.

Oh my, just noticed this.

One of my fave DJs back in the day, who could turn a mediocre night upside down with his scratching. So glad we got to catch you at Candee Flip the other weekend, such a pity it will be the last.

What a shock and what a shame! Angus, along with Edwin and Kesson were the true pioneers of the Brisbane dance scene.

NO ONE on this planet could scratch as good as he did. I've danced my arse off so hard to so many of his sets from 1990 onwards. Legendary guy. Mad as a bag of spaniels, but with a massive heart, who would give you the shirt off his back if he thought you wanted it.

Sad day, RIP big fella. You will be truly missed.

A sad day for Brisbane dance music. RIP Angus.

Didn't see nearly enough of the man in action, am pretty sure he played the first party I went to in '95 and various other big ones over the years, and was lucky enough to see him smash the first Candee Flip in Feb '07.

But close mates of mine a generation of clubbers above me worshipped the guy - pretty sure one has got years and years of his Crucial Cutz sets archived on cassette, complete with tracklisting clipped from Scene Magazine.

Condolences to his family and friends, especially the crew he got to step up to the decks with for the final time at Candee Flip last week. His impact on the Brisbane scene won't be quickly forgotten.
