Chicago's own Andre Harris has passed away

All of us here at Traxsource are truly saddened to hear that Chicago House Producer Andre Harris passed away last week. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family & loved ones during this difficult time. He will be sorely missed…

We were made aware of his passing in a joint statement by Roy Davis, Jr, Mark Grant, Jeff Craven and the Harris family.

The full statement sent to us by Jeff Craven is below.

On behalf of myself, Roy Davis Jr, Mark Grant and the Harris family, it brings me great sorrow to officially announce that last week we lost a truly great spirit and wonderful artist Andre Harris.

We want to honor Andre’s musical and artistic legacy by informing his fans of this tragic news yet we also ask that the privacy of his family is respected during their time of grief. Andre had a long and distinguished career as both a DJ and producer appearing on labels such as Cajual, Estereo, Large and his own imprint Innate Soul over the last 20 years. The Harris family is making arrangements for a memorial service and we will announce those details shortly.

Andre always met his fans, friends and family with a trademark smile and enormous good will and encouragement. It is our hope that even in our sadness we celebrate his amazing life and career with the same kind of joy that Andre shared with all of us.
