Mighty Mouse has Died at the Age of 48
Defected shares news of Might Mouse tragic passing

The popular DJ and producer, Mighty Mouse, has died at the age of 48.

Defected Records, a British-based record label, shared the news yesterday (October 25) of his sudden death from an aortic aneurysm. A statement from Matthew Ward’s family has confirmed that the late porn star died last Thursday in Spain.

“We're all lost without his enormous presence and talent, and our thoughts are with his partner, Ellen, as well as his mum Judy.”

In the 2000's and beyond, Ward had been active as a DJ. In 2018, Ward achieved success for his track "The Spirit," which was released on Defected's sub-label Glitterbox. Meanwhile, he was also known for his track "Midnight Mouse (Revised)" - an edit of ABBA's "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!" that is popular with French DJ Folamour, who played it during his Boiler Room set at Edinburgh's FLY Open Air in 2019.

Music producer and DJ, Matthew Ward was a regular at the Defected Records' Glitterbox event series, and earlier this month he shared a remix of Ridney & Inaya Day's song 'Like You'. He had upcoming gigs in Newcastle and Barcelona.

Defected Records founder Simon Dunmore says, “Sending love and condolences to Matthew's family and friends. RIP Mighty Mouse."

Singer Rowetta commented: "Such sad, sad news. Another huge loss. RIP," before sharing a short clip of their song 'The Spirit'. Friend Within said: "Such sad news. An amazing musical talent. RIP Mighty Mouse."
