Pierce Fulton has taken his own life after a battle with mental health at the age of 28.

The EDM producer’s death on April 29 was announced today (May 4) by his brother Griff who wrote in a statement: “Pierce was so incredibly full of life, love & unimaginable creativity. He was kind, caring, thoughtful, silly & sweet.

“The most magical person that we were all so blessed to know, hear & see. He was an expert at absolutely anything he set his mind to & had this incredible ability to retain knowledge unlike anyone I’ve ever known. The only word that truly can describe his abilities is genius.

“He could captivate a room of strangers in the blink of an eye with only one hope – to make everyone feel loved, comfortable & welcomed.

“He travelled the globe for the better part of a decade doing what he loved & cemented powerful friendships with so many wonderful people along the way, accomplishing more in his career in music than most could dream to accomplish in a lifetime.

“He loved you all so much & wanted to give you everything he had; and he had so much to give.

“To everyone out there who listened to his songs, thank you. To everyone out there who bought tickets to his shows & danced with him, thank you. To everyone out there who was lucky enough to cross paths with him at any point in life & made him feel loved, thank you.”

EDM Canadian duo Sultan & Shephard paid their tribute to Pierce on Instagram, they wrote: “We are so sorry for your loss. Pierce was such a beautiful guy who always put a smile on our face when we saw him. We’re so glad we got to make music with him and get to know him. Sending your family our deepest condolences.”
