Electronic Music Lost A Rising Star with the Passing of LA-Based Producer Pumpkin
We're saddened to share the news that LA-based producer Pumpkin has recently passed away.
Genre-bending electronic producer Pumpkin, known to his friends as Nick Alvarado has unfortunately passed away in a tragic car accident.
Having recently embarked on a spring tour, Pumpkin’s career showed promised having recently been added to the roster of booking agency Madison House, home to Bassnectar and an affiliate to the minds behind Electric Forest and Vertex Music Festival.
On his way to a performance at Head for the Hills festival in Kerrville, Texas, two vehicles, including Alvarado’s, were involved in a collision with an 18-wheeler on Texas Interstate 10. One other individual was killed.
Pumpkin’s unique sound transcended genres, unafraid to mix pop vocals with a spiritually-influenced house, his music resonated with friends and artists alike.
Born and bred with the Detroit techno scene, I pledge my allegiance to the underground.
