Today I am very saddened to hear the news about the passing of a colleague, and a friend. Eric Tadla (above), who formed EnMass along with close friend Randy Boyer, have given us many great memories over the years, with tracks such as CQ, Needle Damage, Stemcell, Avalon and Alive.

I was very proud to have Eric as a member of Coldharbour Recordings. With Randy, he produced the excellent double EP of Avalon / Bass High last year, and also contributed to the label with a remix of Nifra – Ready back in April.

Eric leaves behind his wife and young son. His talent, his dedication, and his heart will be a loss to the scene, and to everyones’ lives that he touched. He will truly be missed.

On behalf of myself, my family, and everyone associated with Coldharbour Recordings, I would like to pass my condolences to Eric’s family and friends. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers over the coming days.

Rest in peace Eric, you were taken away from us too soon. May your star continue to shine.
