Absolutely heartbroken to say goodbye to this wonderful man, Alex Theodossiadis Literally everyone that knew him loved him. He always made the time, went out of his way to support mates. On call 24/7 if you needed him, whether you were a familiar face or a first time contact. Always about, always in the thick of it, ready to catch a flight or a train to be involved. Put every bit of his energy and money back into the right places. A friend to all. You’d need another 1000000 tries to get the combination of warmth, wisdom, wit, fairness and eagerness Alex had. He was the sunny optimist everyone wished they could be: genuinely the best of people I don’t think I’d heard a single bad thing about him, from when we first met in 2013 up until his passing. And if you’d told me, I don’t think I would have believed it anyway Alex had a first gig at Fabric in two weeks, and a tour of the US he’d been working toward for years — then his whole life ahead of him. He even tried to get a doctor’s sign off to DJ a gig in Leeds this last Friday, as he didn’t want to let anyone down (typical). Was talking publicly about just needing to shake the flu then he’d be back at it. The cruelty of this is breathtaking A cornerstone of our little world and just the loveliest guy. IDing machine, wafter supreme, an invincible force for good. The void he leaves is incalculable. Thinking of Seb & the rest of his family first and foremost today. We’re all so, so sorry 💔
