Update: Three Charged in Murder of Minneapolis DJ Adam Thorpe

Minneapolis promoters HotDish paid tribute to Adam, who “had a huge impact on HotDish and we made certain he played our very first show at First Avenue those many years ago.

“He was a Minneapolis ARCHETYPE of house music. He was a person of approachability to all of us. He put ego aside to bring people together around the music. He rocked vinyl until the clubs stopped providing decks, which was proof of his emblematic love for a culture that binds us…and its history. He is history in this city, having playing some of the earliest underground parties, always representing the core origins of house.”

Our sincere condolences to Adam’s family and his extended circle of family and friends.
