Tributes Pour In For Ajax

Adrian Thomas, aka DJ Ajax
Our eclectic team of writers from around Australia – and a couple beyond – with decades of combined experience and interest in all fields.

Tributes have been flowing this morning for Adrian Thomas, aka DJ Ajax, arguably Australia's most influential DJ and widely considered its best.

The Age reports that Thomas ran onto a road in Melbourne's inner north and was struck by a truck in the early hours of Thursday morning. He was reportedly celebrating his birthday. Police have confirmed a pedestrian was killed when he was struck by a truck in Parkville.

One of the founding members of the Bang Gang crew — and the founder of record label Sweat It Out!, which released 'We No Speak Americano', among other dance floor perennials — the 42-year-old has incredibly been voted one of Australia's top five DJs in the inthemix 50 poll every year since 2005, taking out top honours in 2006 and 2007.
