Fans mourn the passing of hardcore DJ Delete. Ryan Biggs – as the Australian artist was actually called – was found dead in his home in Waalwijk on Saturday evening. “You deserved a happier life and left us too soon.”
Around 8 p.m., the police received a report of a deceased person in a house on the Wielrenner in Waalwijk. Officers found Biggs’s body inside.
The detectives spent hours investigating the cause of death, eventually, a hearse left during the night containing the remains of the DJ. Suspicions indicate death by overdose.
The Raw scene lost a talented artist on Sunday night. Australian Ryan Biggs, who started producing more than 15 years ago, has died unexpectedly. This was announced by his management on Sunday morning.
DJ Delete caused of death
It is still unclear what caused Biggs to die, but the police confirm to Omroep Brabant that there has been no crime. “It is with a heavy heart that we confirm that Ryan Biggs aka Delete passed away last night,” reads the DJ’s Facebook page. “Our thoughts go out to his family, friends, colleagues, and fans. Rest in peace Ryan.”
Fans of the hardstyle DJ are shocked at the news. “Very sad news. Ryan was one of the best producers and performers in the scene. A true legend,” Harri said. “A great loss to the world and the hardstyle scene! Ryan, you were an absolute legend and an inspiration to many,” Celeste said.
Depression and Anxiety
Biggs moved from Australia to the Netherlands in 2013. The artist was open about his mental health issues. Last year he talked about his years of struggles with depression and anxiety. Complaints that, according to him, only got worse due to the corona crisis.
“You deserved a happier life and left us too soon,” fan Lynn reacts defeated by the death of his idol. “The memories and music you leave behind will be cherished forever.” Celeste wholeheartedly agrees: “You will be loved forever and will never be forgotten.”
Ryan Biggs, known by the DJ Delete, has released songs like “Payback,” “Strive For Domination,” “Take It Back,” and “In Control” over the past few years, which have been streamed millions of times. He was a regular guest at festivals like Defqon.1 or the Intents Festival and just a few weeks ago he played at the Rebirth Festival in the Netherlands. He often suffered from depression and anxiety, the artist said in a 2021 Twitch Livestream. His death is still unimaginable for many.
