Riesterer, who used the stage name Fred Rister, also worked with David Guetta but, unlike the superstar French DJ, eschewed the limelight.

Last year he wrote; "I am the most famous of the unknowns. I work with pleasure for others without seeking their glory."

Born in northern France near the border with Belgium, Riesterer trained as a hairdresser before finding his calling in music as a DJ, writer and producer.

Riesterer's publisher confirmed Wednesday he died on Tuesday but had no further details. Riesterer had long battled cancer.

Guetta said on Instagram: "I feel very lonely right now crying in my bed."
