Goodbye, Pete Namlook

The latest news floating around the net today isn’t good news, sadly.  Pioneering ambient producer and FAX Records maven Pete Namlook has died.  While the cause has yet to be determined, his daughter, Fabia, reports in a statement that he passed peacefully.  Once a cause is determined, another official announcement will be made.  Read more here.

It goes without saying how influential Namlook was to the electronic music community.  The astounding number of releases and collaborations he’s done over the years has become legendary.  For countless artists around the world, there will be mourning.  For me, Namlook will always be a huge inspiration.  To say that he’ll be missed is an understatement.

Thank you, Pete Namlook, for making music that continues to touch us deeply.  You’ll forever be an inspiration to us all.


About Nick H.

I'm a geek for music whether it be on vinyl, CD, 78 or whatever. My goal is to sniff out the greated music on Earth, specializing in the obscure. I make music myself as well, mostly ambient and sound collage (1 album out and a few remixes so far). I work full time as a professional mascot (it pays the pills) but will soon retire, i hope.
