In Memory of DJ RKK
May 3, 2015
All of us here at Brownswood have been shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden death of a good friend, Rémy Kolpa Kopoul, DJ RKK of Radio Nova fame. We have very little information except that he died yesterday in Brest, France, shortly after doing what he loved – playing music.
One of France’s best known and loved DJs and musical experts, Rémy was a particular fan of Brazilian music and was a passionate expert and supporter of Brazilian artists. His articles, radio shows and newsletters were backbone of the world music scene and showcased much of the best music around. He was a regular guest of Gilles’ at shows and festivals in France and was due to play with Gilles next Sunday at the Urban Village Fete in London. He will be sadly missed by music lovers around the world.
