Renowned DJ and record producer Ian Carey has died at the age of 46.

Beloved for his unique approach to house music production, Carey was a multi-platinum artist who worked with major contemporary music artists such as Taio Cruz, Snoop Dogg, Afrojack, and Timbaland. His breakthrough summertime smash "Keep On Rising," a track featuring Michelle Shellers and released in 2008, was a highlight in a career of many. 

Carey's final release was a remix of "Keep On Rising" by ManyFew and Joe Stone, following a handful of reworks from other electronic music producers.
