The statement read: "It's with heavy hearts and great sadness we have announce that Marcus passed away this morning. Thanks for the kind words so far and we appreciate the privacy and respect shown for his loved ones and friends at this sad time."

Kaye, who lived in Manchester, had been due to play live at a show in London on Sunday night, May 28, when news of his death was first reported. The event was subsequently canceled. A cause of death is yet to be confirmed.

Originally a drum 'n' bass producer, Kaye shifted his focus later in his career to making house and techno. He was the co-founder of both the Soul:r and Revolve:r labels. In 2007 Soul:r helmed the 35th FabricLive mix following a residency at the iconic London club. In 2011 he adopted the Trevino moniker and released debut album 21 that same year.

The Black Madonna, Skream, Boddika, Benji B, and many more artists from the dance music community have paid tribute to Kaye. Read on for a round up of the tributes.
