They say celebrity deaths come in threes, which seems to be the sad case as 2015 draws to a close: First Lemmy of Motörhead, then the Specials’ John Bradbury, and now Guru Josh, whose 1990 anthem “Infinity” — with its signature saxophone licks and ebullient trance synths — became emblematic of the U.K.’s developing rave scene at that time. The Guardian reports that the DJ died in Ibiza at age 51 of unknown causes.
