It is a sad day for the electronic music community, as a precious soul, Samisoni Koroitamudu aka Big Makk, has left us at the young age of 25 in a fatal car accident.
Signed to Mad Decent and scheduled to perform at this year’s EDC Orlando, Big Makk was a rising producer highly praised by his peers. Having collaborated with industry gargantuans like Mr. Carmack and Bassnectar, Big Makk truly was a producer destined to leave a mark in modern electronic music. His passing is mourned as many producers have gone to Twitter to share their condolences and celebrate the young giant’s beautiful legacy.

Thank you for your music, Sam. Gone, but never forgotten. Rest in Peace.
