After his passing was reported on social media, DJ Stu Allen was hailed as a “90s music icon.”

After friends and family posted about the death of the producer from Manchester on social media, tributes have been left for him.

Allen was renowned as a major player in the house music industry with a big heart in addition to his talent.

According to the Mirror, he worked for Piccadilly Radio, which is now Greatest Hits Radio, and Key 103, which is now Hits Radio, in the 1980s and 1990s.

The Twitter post announcing his death said: “It is with much sadness that we write this message to let you know that Stu has passed away today.

“We will be holding a memorial event in Stu’s memory sometime soon, where we can all celebrate his amazing life. Please leave a comment below and what memories you have of Stu.”

Kiss FM’s Anton Powers said: “He was my inspiration to be a DJ. […] I listened to his Key 103 shows religiously.

“They say never meet you heroes but with Stu that wasn’t true.”

Fellow broadcaster Justin Robertson said: “He introduced me to more amazing music than I can remember.
