RIP Apex

Earlier today, word swept the drum & bass world regarding the passing of Robert Dickeson, known to many as Apex. The Maidstone, England-born producer started out as 1/2 of Unknown Error, getting some major looks via Renegade Hardware and Moving Shadow, but ended up splitting from the duo in 2007 to much success for Hospital and Lifted Music, among other imprints.

As of late, Apex had been making house and techno, releasing material as Robert Oaks on Mau5trap.

While there's no official word on cause of death, a number of sites are reporting that Apex committed suicide. Unknown Error posted a heartfelt note on Facbeook.

Andy C, Kill the Noise, and Blu Mar Ten also shared their condolences on social media.

We here at rockthedub send our sincere condolences to Apex's family and friends.
