He wrote: “This is a post I had hoped I’d never have to make but it’s with a broken heart that I have to say, bye to my brother, my friend, my DJ, one of the most creative and brilliant minds I’ve ever known… i can’t believe you’re not here anymore… trying to find the right pictures of us has me all fucked up and crying, because we have waaaay too many memories together… I love you my brother and I don’t know how to keep it together…#RIPDjSpinbad #MyBrother.”
DJ Yoda said in the following statement: “I’m raw and almost unable to comment on this right now, but I’ve woken up to the news that Spinbad is gone. This has hit me hard. Spinbad is one of the main reasons that I am a DJ. Let me tell you how important his infamous 80s pop mix is. Spinbad was the first hip-hop mixtape DJ to leave the comfort zone of rap music. He showed me that music isn’t something you need to be embarrassed about. A clue to how influential he was for me – I spoke to Chris before I released “How To Cut & Paste: The 80s Edition” to check it was OK with him that I even did it. I tried to put my UK/personal spin on it, but I had to shout him out on the mix itself because it wouldn’t have existed without him. To this day, I talk about him when I get asked in interviews who my influences are. The world is culturally emptier today without him – I wish I had the chance to say goodbye. I send love to his family, and today – listen to his 80s mix (the 90s one is amazing too). Rest in peace Spinbad.”
