Music : R.I.P Peter Rauhofer


One of the greatest DJs of all time – and certainly one of my fave – Peter Rauhofer died of a brain cancer yesterday at age 48.

He is know across the globe for his famous remixes for Madonna, Cher, Rihanna, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and many others and for his contribution to electronic dance music.

The DJ is survived by his mother Helga, who still lives in Vienna.

RIP Peter!

    I can’t believe what I just read. Peter’s gone?. He was the Rumpelstillskin(I prolly just misspelled that last one!)of the D.J. world-he spun everyday top 40’s music into legendary dance gold! I consider myself lucky to have had the privilege to hear him live many occasions when he came to L.A. for major after hours dance events. Such a loss to the electronic world of dance. He will be missed, R.I.P Peter

    Back in my Circuit Party days, Peter was on one of my Atlantis gay cruises, two white parties in Palm Springs and Cherry 5 in Washington D.C. with Manny Lehman.

    Peter, you brought so many good times to many people. Your life has been fulfilled. You brought joy to so many!

    I am so sorry to see you go. May God bless your soul and lead you to the kingdom of heaven. Amen

    Rest in Peace Peter!

    Your music will live on and many will still “enjoy” it.

    Now you are doing remixes for the great artist that have gone before you…
