Scott Hardkiss Reportedly Dead


Word is that 1/3 of the San Francisco electronic music group Hardkiss, Scott (aka God Within), has passed away. Big Shot is not reporting a cause of death, nor is Scott Hardkiss’ Facebook page, but Big Shot mentions that his death was “unexpected.”

Scott’s career as a producer and DJ found him remixing Elton John, The Flaming Lips, and George Clinton, as well as working on projects for TV and film.

        Several different people posted that on Facebook in separate threads I’ve seen. Still TBC but it’s the only explanation I’ve seen put forth so far (plus it fits the scenario, Scott re-Tweeted 3 Tweets the day before so it was clearly sudden/unexpected).
