Sad news from the music world. Legendary DJ and producer/remixer Peter Rauhofer has died of brain cancer at the really young age of 48. Though Austrian, he was a New York club legend regularly spinning at venues like The Roxy. He was lucky enough to remix EVERYONE from Depeche Mode to Madonna to Kylie Minogue to Pet Shop Boys to Yoko Ono! He even won a Grammy for his remix of Cher’s “Believe.” I saw him spin many times and of course have burned countless calories listening to his remixes at the gym. He may be gone in body, but his music will live on forever. RIP Peter. 🙁
