Dubstep DJ Tony Cook aka Cookie Monsta dies aged 31

DUBSTEP DJ Cookie Monsta has died aged 31.

The Brit musician, real name Tony Cook, had toured the US with hits like Ruff and Blurgh.

His record label paid tribute to the “beloved” artist on Friday, but it is unclear how he died.

Circus records tweeted: “All of our thoughts go to Tony’s family, friends and our heart especially goes out to Tony’s son Olly, the Mini Monsta. The world will miss you Cookie, we will miss you brother.”

The DJ was forced to cancel shows last year after struggling with his mental health.

He wrote at the time: “For the past year I’ve been struggling with mental health issues, over the recent weeks and months this has become harder than ever.”

Mr Cook, from Nottingham, had returned to playing music before his death.

Fellow DJ Delta Heavy wrote online: “Shocking news.

"Tony was a fantastic guy; warm, hilarious and most importantly honest and genuine.”
