    Police suspect that fentanyl laced drugs might have been responsible for Lil Peep’s overdose


    OzClubbers

    While the toxicology report containing the specific details of Lil Peep’s death has yet to arrive, police in Tucson, Arizona have reportedly received information regarding the potential presence of fentanyl in the drugs ingested by Lil Peep prior to his death.

    A potent synthetic opioid, fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more powerful than morphine, leading to an increased risk of overdose for users of drugs cut with the opioid. Fentanyl additionally augments the addictive quality of addictive substances, further increasing the chance for drug addiction and related overdoses. Fentanyl has appeared as a substance used to cut drugs on the black market, despite its toxicity — an amount of fentanyl the size of a mere grain of salt can materialize as a lethal dose. Fentanyl overdose victims are generally unaware that the drugs that they take are laced with fentanyl at the time of consumption.

    Lil Peep’s brother, Karl Ahr, stated earlier this month that the family had been informed by an unspecified source that fentanyl laced drugs could have played a part in the rapper’s death. “We have heard there was some sort of substance he did not expect to be involved in the substance he was taking,” Ahr said. “He [Lil Peep] thought he could take what he did, but he had been given something and he didn’t realize what it was.” Ahr believes Lil Peep’s death to have been a tragic accident.

    The artist’s death was determined to be a drug overdose by the local medical examiner’s office. Lil Peep’s toxicology report will be able to identify whether fentanyl was indeed involved in the overdose. Toxicology reports generally become available from a six to eight-week period.

      NYC’s subway buskers turned Beyonce collaborators Too Many Zooz and UK producer KDA have called upon the production talents of Armand Van Helden for a club-primed rework of Warriors. The original, featuring UK #1 producer KDA, has been played 45 times by Radio 1, was Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World, featured as the official track for London Pride, and has surpassed 1 million streams on Spotify. With a fresh new remix on the cards courtesy of Armand Van Helden, Warriors is poised to be elevated to new heights over the coming months.
       
      Too Many Zooz started off life as buskers on NYC’s long and winding subway system. Fast-forward just a few years and the brass-house trio have reached heights they never thought possible: from guesting on Beyonce’s Lemonade to selling out shows in the blink of an eye across Europe and the US. Composed of dancing sax wizard, Leo P, the ferocious percussionist King of Sludge and nimble-fingered trumpeter Matt Doe, Too Many Zooz are getting bigger and bigger. Hard on the heels of playing Good Morning Britain last month, there’s seemingly no end to the NYC trio’s meteoric success.
       
      KDA is a South London boy who has an equally impressive command of the commercial realm as he does the underground. He’s the name behind the UK#1, Platinum certified single Turn the Music Louder featuring Katy B and Tinie Tempah, as well as Just Say with Tinashe and the socially conscious new underground dance single Hate Me. His first-hand experience of London’s underground club culture has cemented KDA as a highly regarded dance music authority. His DJ support is an endless list of equally varied tastemakers including the likes of Jackmaster, Seth Troxler, Black Madonna and Jamie Jones.
       
      With over 20 years’ experience as one of the world’s most in demand DJs, Armand Van Helden is a name that needs little introduction. The Boston-born dance music authority has dominated the charts with singles ‘Witch Doktor’ in 1997, ‘You Don’t Know Me’ back in 1999, and ‘My My My’ in 2005. He’s released countless club tracks, old and new, that continue to leave their unmistakable mark on the dance music world. Whether he’s DJing the world’s biggest dance spaces or hard at work in his natural habitat, the studio, Armand Van Helden’s talent and reputation is unparalleled.
       
      “Armand has such a creative way of bringing new shapes and colors out of a song, and he did this brilliantly on the Warrior’s remix. It reminds us of those old UK dance records that we love, with that familiar charming energy of the kick and hats mixed with resonant filter sweeps on the trumpets and saxes. Two words: BIG CHUNE!!!!!!!” - MATT
       
      Armand Van Helden’s dance-floor ready remix of Warriors demonstrates all the hallmarks of a club classic. Replete with gargantuan 909 four to the floor beats and deep, billowing basses that underpin Too Many Zooz’ and KDA’s unmistakable ‘brass-house’ sound, the Boston dance music aficionado has provided a heady remix worthy to be played in the world’s most esteemed club spaces.
       
      Too Many Zooz VS KDA – Warriors (Armand Van Helden Remix)  is out on 17th August 2018 via Ministry Of Sound.
