In a tragic turn of events, Australian DJ Adam Neat passed away in Bali this weekend. Neat had attempted to rescue his friend, Zoia Lukiantceva, who had fallen several feet from their private terrace at the Hillstone Villas Resort. The injuries he sustained after crashing through a glass door in order to aid his friend were fatal. Police say alcohol may have been involved. Following the incident, Neat’s team confirmed the news through social media.

Their loss is our loss. Neat was only 42 years old at the time of his death. We knew him as Adam Sky, a top-ranking international DJ, who had supported artists like David Guetta, Afrojack, and Paul Oakenfold. Adam Sky was scheduled to perform at Ultra Singapore this June. Although some have taken to social media to question if there had been an abuse of alcohol, one fan was honest:

“…Regardless if alcohol was involved, his immediate reaction was to help his friend. I am so sorry for his family, friends and fans who must be in a state of shock and are grieving. He died trying to save someone and that is a very honourable thing.♥️”

Rest in peace, Adam Sky. You gave a lot to this world. Thank you.
