Spotted this on an FB post earlier on this evening.

"Dearest friends,

For those of you who don't already know I'm deeply sorry to pass on the news that Ben died very suddenly on Monday morning. We know that it will come as a shock to many of you as it has to us. We are all at home feeling loved and supported, and our thoughts are with all of you who knew, loved, got irritated by and were lucky enough to have a little bit of his magic in your lives.

I'll send out details of what's happening as soon as we have sorted everything out.

If you would like to share any photos or thoughts with us our brilliant friend Debbie has set up bendaglishphotos@gmail.com - we would love to hear from you.

Sarah, Jake, Rhianna and Lottie xxx"

Ben was a prolific composer and all round good guy, regardless of whether your music came from the C64 (where he started) through to the modern remakes that I've seen him play numerous times at various events.

Sad news indeed. Deepest sympathy to Ben's family and friends all over the world.

Deflektor is one of the best computer game tunes ever:

Sad news yes, and the man wasn't old.

The Switchblade synch buzzer solo will always regularly come to my mind.
