The sad news was confirmed to Pitchfork by a representative for Saba’s Pivot Gang. Squeak, along with Daedae and Daoud, was a member of Pivot Gang’s production team. He began his career as a recording engineer with Pivot Gang.

The artist’s most recent release was a collaborative EP, ‘En Route’ with MFnMelo released earlier this year.

May his soul rest in peace.
