It is with great sadness to announce Scottish DJ & Producer, Jamie Roy has died. 😭

In this message from Jamie Roy’s family, today Wednesday 21st September, they announced the awful news.

“Jamie passed away yesterday. Jamie was a much loved and talented son, brother, nephew and uncle and loved by his many friends and colleagues both within the music industry and beyond that. We are all absolutely heartbroken.”

We truly loved Jamie at Data Transmission, we’ve supported, partied, hung out with him, and even released his records via one of our previous labels for nearly 10 years.

Last year, he released his song ‘Organ Belta’ via the Trick label owned by Patrick Topping.

It was only a few days ago, he marked the song’s first anniversary on Instagram, writing: “Well Organ Belta is one year old next week! Just had a look and it’s at number 37 and still in the house charts 51 weeks later mental jumping 24 places since yesterday. I’m also 46th biggest selling house artist thank you all so much,” he added, going on to say that “organ belta 2 is coming…”

Last November, we met up with him in Milton Keynes and he played us a whole host of new music that was coming up and he was buzzing about how the previous year had gone and was excited for 2022.

In 2021, the video of him playing Oden & Fatzo’s track, ‘Lauren’ at UNUM Festival at an after party, had blown the track up and with it, accelerated Jamie Roy’s path, which was truly amazing to watch the growth of one of dance music, fondest, funniest and most delightful people.

We at Data Transmission are utterly shocked at the news and the deepest condolences go out to his family and closest friends.

Fly high Jamie, you were utterly amazing & wonderful and today is a very sad day.

The world is the worst place because you are now not in it.

RIP Jamie Roy xx
