Top Australian DJ Ajax has been killed in a road accident in Melbourne.
Ajax, real name Adrian Thomas, reportedly ran into the path of a truck and was killed instantly in the early hours of Thursday morning.
A regular performer at major Australian music festivals, Ajax was considered among the best Antipodean DJs following his big break in 2005.
The owners of Sydney club Chinese Laundry, where Ajax was a regular performer, broke the news of the DJ’s death on their Facebook page, writing, “Absolutely heart breaking news about one of our long time former resident Dj’s AJAX. Ajax was resident at Chinese Laundry for over 7 years and was a great friend to everyone here & an amazing DJ that was always a crowd favourite. You will be sorely missed by everyone who knew you and everyone at Chinese Laundry. RIP Buddy.”
