This is terribly sad. I love Telefon Tel Aviv. Saw them live once here in NYC a few years back at Knitting Factory. They were incredible.

Damn, that really is a shame. Fahrenheit Fair Enough has been on heavy rotation on my player for years now. It’s a real shame to lose one of the few truly talented IDM musicians out the. My condolences to his friends/family.

In deepest condolences to Charlie and his family.

With utmost respect to Charlie and his family, the media is reporting suicide though it is not been confirmed yet by autopsy. It is truly tragic, Telefon Tel Aviv were amazingly talented.

This is terrible news. Telefon Tel Aviv and the members were artists in the true sense. I wish his family and friends well.
