The UK producer, real name Chris Mercer, announced the news via Twitter yesterday, confirming that he would be unable to perform shows over the summer but that he does "still have loads of music coming out."

In a Facebook post on April 25th, he revealed that he had been forced to cancel multiple gigs due to an "unforeseen medical emergency."
