RIP The Orb's Andy Hughes
Andy Hughes—DJ, producer, and former member of The Orb—passed away on Friday, June 12. According to a recent press statement, his death was due to "a short illness."
Hughes is considered one of the genius producers of the '90s, having worked not only with Alex Patterson and The Orb, but also Thomas Fehlmann, Nick Burton, Simon Phillips, and others.
A funeral will be open to anyone wishing to attend. It is scheduled for Monday, June 29 at the West Norwood Crematorium in London. His family has asked for donations to be made to King's College Hospital Charity. Hughes spent the last few days of his life at the Liver Intensive Care Unit at King's College.
