RIP Matthew Africa

We here at Dollar Bin Jams are extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Bay Area DJ, digger and homie Matthew Africa, whose work we have admired and hopefully you have too if you follow this blog.

As told by his sister:

My brother, Matthew Africa, was killed in a car accident on Monday afternoon. He and his beloved wife, Ha Le, were returning from a trip to Yosemite when their car collided with a big rig on a highway near Modesto. They tell us he died instantly; miraculously, she survived with multiple fractures. His absence is unbearable. Please keep our families in your thoughts and prayers.

Go over to Matthew Africa's blog to listen to some of his music, mixes and thoughts and leave some condolences if need be.

If we hear of any memorial services or donations set up in his honor, we will report them here.

The world is a less funky place in his absence.
