Australian DJ Adam Sky, who died while reportedly rushing to the aid of a woman who fell from a villa in Kuta, Bali, has been remembered as an "amazing friend and an amazing artist".

Relatives said they were travelling to Bali
The DJ, whose given name is Adam Neat, crashed through a glass door.

Indonesian media reports said he severed a major artery in his arm, causing serious blood loss.

It is believed his female friend had fallen several metres from their private terrace and suffered broken bones.

Bali police are still investigating the circumstances of his death.

The 42-year-old was an internationally recognised DJ, having supported well-known artists including Fat Boy Slim, David Guetta and The Scissor Sisters.

Originally from Melbourne, Neat was based in Singapore and was described as a "rising Aussie superstar DJ" by JUICE Magazine Asia.

In the wake of his death, fellow musician Luke Buirski told ABC News he met Neat at a night club seven years ago, and the DJ had been an "amazing friend" ever since.

"I'm still shaking right now. It just feels like a really bad dream … I'm still processing it right now, my mind is just wiped," he said.

"He was everywhere, that was the most amazing thing about him, he was humble as well.

"You meet a lot of people and they get to a point in their career and they change — and he never changed.

"I'll remember him as an amazing friend and an amazing artist."
