RIP Guru (1966-2010)

Yesterday we lost a true legend, Keith Elam aka Guru. Aged just 43, he lost his battle with cancer, after being ill for just over a year.

UPDATE: DJ Premier issued a statement read it here & Guru’s family issued a statement; read it here.

Yesterday Solar made a statement to AHH and attached a letter that was “written by Guru”.

There is some controversy as to whether the letter was actually written by Guru, but rather than discuss that I would rather celebrate his life and what he brought us. That being said click below to hear some of your’re favourite DJ’s paying tribute to Guru with their tribute mixes.
