RIP Mike Honcho

The Denver music scene lost another major contributor over the weekend as DJ/producer/promoter Mike Wilson -- better known as Mike Honcho and/or Meka One -- was found dead at home by his roommate. Mike was well known and well loved within the electronic music community -- this 24-page thread over at Unnet (a popular local electronic music forum) is a testimony to that -- and while I didn't know him personally, I am familiar with some of the work he's done around town in the jungle/drum-and-bass and dubstep communities and know he will be missed. A fund has been established to help his family cover burial expenses; services are being planned now.
