El-P has cancelled all his forthcoming European dates (including Primavera). The American hip-hop artist (real name Jaime Meline) released a statement earlier today, reading:

"Due to the unexpected loss of a loved one I will not be able to attend ATP or Primavera as scheduled. My sincere apologies to my fans. I hope you can understand and I will do my best to make it up to you."

This comes as sad news, and we wish the man well. His new album, Cancer 4 Cure, is out now.
