Tributes have been paid to Scottish DJ and producer Jamie Roy, who has died aged 33.

Roy, who was originally from Dumfries, made his name in Glasgow and went on to perform all over the world.

Friends and music industry colleagues described the DJ, whose songs regularly featured on BBC Radio 1, as an “incredible human”.

Roy’s family confirmed he died on Tuesday but did not give any further details.

A statement on social media, published on Wednesday, said: “Jamie was a much loved and talented son, brother, nephew and uncle and loved by his many friends and colleagues both within the music industry and beyond that.

“We are all absolutely heartbroken.”

The musician was known as a regular performer in Ibiza, and played at venues such as Pacha, Amnesia and Ibiza Rocks.

Earlier this month, Roy announced on social media he would soon be releasing the “biggest track of my life” with one “the biggest producers on earth”.

In the past year he had performed at events around the world, including Unum festival in Albania, Sonic Festival in Croatia and BPM Festival in Costa Rica.

House music producers Defected Records hailed Roy as a “great producer, DJ, and friend to so many within our industry”.
