Today someone really special for me left . @fredristermusic and I shared some of the most important and beautiful moments of my life producing records together like ‘I Gotta A Feeling’ that stayed 16 weeks as number one in America, Memories’ gold-When Love Takes Over’. Those records have changed dance music culture but also pop music. I remember each second of it ; from choosing chords together to working on drum sounds for hours, learning together and from each other. He was the most loyal person I met and they are so rare in this world, such a talented, humble, generous and discreet human being. We were always here for each others; for music and for life like it is in an ideal family when you trust someone with no limit. I feel very lonely right now crying in my bed, but I guess it’s better this way as his cancer was making him suffer a lot. Rest in peace my friend I’ll keep playing our music and I’ll think of you every time. We lived our dreams and way beyond and I’m forever thankful
