Finding an appropriate thread title was much harder than I thought it would be...

...so I curved it altogether, and will get straight to the point. I went on Wastebook just now for the first time in a few days, and had received this message on my artist page earlier this evening:

Hi there, Got some sad news about a brother that needed to be shared with the DNB arena production forum community but I'm not a member so I can't comment but I just remembered you had a lot do do with the forum. Not sure if you heard but Rich Haig aka IKOS passed away this week and I'm not sure his friends on there are aware as he doesn't have a Facebook page. Was hoping you might spread the word to all concerned? His funeral is on Friday 8th December 2017 11:15am Streetly Crem. Then wake longhorn pub. Cheers man, respek


This far into forum life — and besides sheer unshakeable habit, I have no idea why I still come here — I don't know who was legitimately friends, or even just friendly, with him any more. I met him no more than twice, fleetingly, at club nights, and our dialogue here didn't amount to much, all told. So I feel kinda weird upon learning this as, if nothing else, it seemed pretty clear to me that the guy carried around a lot of stuff in his head... but is that reason enough by itself to not be shocked or surprised to hear this news, even without any details/specifics?

I'm-a stop typing now, as I don't even know who these words are even for. But yeah, I was asked to share, so those who knew him any better than me, y'all can do whatever the done thing is. God rest him and that. Peace out.

Shit. Someone said just the other day it's a shame he doesn't post anymore. He got a lot of shit from people, including myself, for the insanely long winded posts, but he seemed like a pretty good guy all things considered... Just, as you said, carrying a lot of baggage around with him.
 
RIP

What the fuck. That's terrible news. He sent me a message less than a week ago and although he didn't seem any different than usual he had been going through opioid withdrawals as the doctor suddenly dropped his subutex prescription which has made me think it must be related to that.

I don't know if I should have even shared info from a private PM on here but it seems pretty relevant.

I know I've given him shit on here before about his long and emotional posts but I don't think he ever took it to heart and we had talked a fair bit over PMs since then.

Do we know what happened?

R.I.P :(

FFS. I messaged him couple weeks back and he replied as usual. Proper nice bloke. Seems like we're losing a dappa every month recently.

Jesus Christ that's terrible. IKOS's posts may have been tldr but he was one of the most genuine and nice people around. For years I was planning to buy some of his art and I'm so lucky to have done so. He was incredibly proud of his work and rightly so.

RIP IKOS

Very sad. He seemed like a genuinely nice person who carried a lot of issues on his shoulders. He took a lot of shit on here that he didn't deserve.

RIP IKOS

That's awful news.  He did seem like a tormented soul that was carrying a lot of of baggage.
 
Rest in peace fella.

Holy shit, that's fucked up - he was a stalwart of the production forum, and we all know how good his art was, a properly talented artist in the true sense of the word. 
 
He always came across as a caring, kind individual so this news leaves me at a bit of a loss tbh.
 
Hope you're in a better place now brother

What the actual fuck. I was quite close to IKOS at one point on here he’s about the only forum member I ever spoke to regularly. I’ve not PMd him in a while as he seemed to have gone quiet, he was in the process of designing me a tattoo. This has actually saddened me quite deeply. I’m glad I bought some of his artwork but I’ve still not put it up, I shal do that ASAP in remembrance

He got far too much shit off people on here for no reason what so ever

Sleep easy mate ✌🏻

I always skipped to the end of his posts, but they were well-intentioned.

He was a good guy, had his troubles but never thought he’d go so early.
