Peter Rauhofer, a world-renowned electronic music DJ and song remixer from Vienna, Austria, who won a Grammy in 1999 for his treatment of Cher's 'Believe', died today, aged 48, following a fight against brain cancer. His acclaimed dance mixes of recordings by Madonna, Rihanna, Whitney Houston, and Mariah Carey solidified him as pioneer of club music.
Neil said, "Chris and I are deeply saddened to learn that the producer and DJ, Peter Rauhofer, has died today. We were big fans of his remixes and worked with him in 2000 when, at his suggestion, we recorded a version of the house classic 'Break 4 Love' under the name The Collaboration. The record went to number one in the Billboard Dance Chart in the USA. Only recently we asked our manager to approach him about remixing one of the tracks from our new 'Electric' album. Peter will be missed so much by dance music fans all over the world and we send our sincere condolences to his mother and family and all his friends. Neil x". Peter Rauhofer 1965-2013.
Many of Peter Rauhofer's remixes are available to listen to on his page on the Soundcloud website.

We'd like to thank everyone we've worked with at Parlophone over the last 28 years both in the UK and abroad. When we signed to the label in 1985 we had no idea how long and successful a relationship we were embarking on. However it is also exciting now to commence a new phase working with a new team in a new business structure and we look forward to a creative and equally fulfilling relationship with Kobalt."
Paul Hitchman, Managing Director of Kobalt Label Services, said today, "The whole global Kobalt Label Services team is hugely excited to be a part of the forthcoming Pet Shop Boys release.

We have been fortunate enough to have been partners in one of the most successful careers in pop culture. Neil and Chris to this day influence so many with their incredible songwriting and music. We wish them every success in the future and look forward to continuing our relationship with them across their entire and enviable catalogue."
