Mighty Mouse has Died
We have very sad news that our friend, the truly wonderful, Mighty Mouse passed away last Thursday.
Defected Records announced it last night on social media saying “We are devastated to confirm that Matthew Ward aka Mighty Mouse, died suddenly last Thursday at his home in Spain. Matthew died in his sleep from an aortic aneurysm. We are all lost without his enormous presence and talent. Our thoughts are with his partner, Ellen, and his Mum, Judy, as well as his wider family and many, many friends and fans.”
We became huge fans of Mighty Mouse through his Disco Circus compilation series, and then later through his amazing releases including our favourite below. With a long-standing career, the acclaimed producer has had a resurgence in recent years, with the release of his mammoth single ‘The Spirit’, released on Glitterbox.
Over the years, he played with us at our Data Transmission parties at Alexandra Palace and Sankeys Ibiza and was a massive favourite amongst us at Data Transmission, we are massively upset at his passing and wish our deepest thoughts to Ellen and his family.
Rest In Peace, Mighty Mouse.
