Beloved Scottish DJ, dance music producer and Ibiza regular Jamie Roy tragically passed away last week, but his music continues to live on.

In the wake of his death, Roy's friends, label mates and fans launched a campaign to push his track, "Organ Belta," up the Beatport charts. The song, which was released through Patrick Topping's Trick label in September 2021, ultimately topped the site's House charts.

All of the money earned from Beatport will benefit Roy's family, according to a statement from Trick.

Roy was a regular in the Ibiza music scene as well as Glasgow's underground house and techno circuit. During his time on the White Isle, Roy held down a residency for Ibiza Rocks and played at Amnesia, DC-10, Pacha and Ushuaïa, among other iconic clubs. Last year, he signed to Ultra Records and released his song "Fantasy" with Huxley and DJ Rae.
