In incredibly sad news and with a heavy heart Data Transmission must report news of the tragic passing this weekend of Dim Mak signed producer Sonic C who has died in a fatal car crash in Miami. Aged just 21, the producer, real name Anthony Rodriguez was killed in a car accident at around 2am EST Sunday morning in his Florida home town.
Rodriguez first came to our attention for his track ‘Stickin’, released via Laidback Luke’s Mixmash imprint back in 2009 whilst he was still only a teenager and looked set for a long and illustrious career within the music industry dropping his last track ‘Shake’ with Gina Turner under his Tony Colorado alias only a fortnight ago. Throughout his short career Rodriguez worked with some of the scenes biggest international names with Steve Aoki, Max Vangeli and Digital Lab all teaming up with the talented youngster in recent years.
Rodriguez’ representatives are yet to confirm his death but a number of friends and colleagues such as Digital Lab and previous label boss Laidback Luke have all taken to to twitter to pay tribute to his passing. Naturally our thoughts are with his loved ones at this very difficult time. RIP Sonic C. You’ll be missed!
