"This extremely talented spirit taught us that even if nothing matters, you can still lead with love.

"Garrett's truth and soul lives on through the music he shared.

"Rest in peace Garrett. We love you.”

i_o had released his latest single Castles In The Sky at the weekend, and played his first live show in nine months just 10 days before his death.

The performance came after months of not being able to perform live due to coronavirus lockdown restrictions.

Last week he posted a picture of himself at the turntables on Instagram captioned: “do u ever question ur life? [sic]”
