The star’s music label, Circus Records, confirmed the tragic news on its Twitter account.

In the tweet, posted on Friday, the record label said all members of staff are “devastated” by his death.

It is yet to be confirmed what is the cause of the DJ’s, real name Tony Cook, death.

Circus Records tweeted: “Our beloved Tony Cook (aka Cookie Monsta) has left us.

“We are devastated, no words can contain our feelings on such a day.

“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 post finished with the words: “Out of respect for Tony’s family, we will hold off on commenting any further until deemed appropriate.”

Tony was most well known for his tracks Ruff and Blurgh.

It was only last year that he cancelled his tour to deal with his mental health after he released a statement at the time saying he had “been struggling with mental health issues”.

He wrote on Facebook at the time: “I’ve not been online recently as I’ve been trying to work through my problems away from the glare of social media.

“Unfortunately I’ve not made as much progress as I’d hoped, so I’ve decided that I need to take a longer break from the scene.”

However, in August 2019, he tweeted that he was “in a better place” and delighted fans by returning to his music.

He said he had returned to making tracks “with more confidence and passion than ever before.”

Following the news, Tony’s fellow DJ pals and musicians have rushed to pay tribute to him on Twitter.

MURT DONKEY posted: “Damn… RIP to the absolute legend Cookie Monsta. Another reminder about how fragile life can be.”

KOVEN tweeted: “We are honestly beyond devastated at the news just shared by Circus Records, the passing of Tony, Cookie Monsta.

“He was always so much fun to be around, he had a wonderful and caring soul.

“We are so so sad for this loss to everyone that knew him. Rest in peace.”
