Local police believe Mr Neat crashed through a glass door at Hillstone Villas Resort, sliced his arm and died of blood loss.

He’d been rushing to help a friend who’d fallen several metres from a private pool area, Nine reported.

Mr Neat’s website said he was a “powerhouse” of the dance music scene in Asia and had worked with global stars David Guetta and Afrojack.

The Singapore-based DJ found a mass market by touring Asia. His website states he has more top 100 and top 10 charted tracks than any other producer in Asia.

He also hosts a radio show, Guestlist Radio, which reaches more than a million monthly listeners worldwide.

Tributes have poured in on Mr Neat’s Facebook page, which has more than 900,000 followers, remembering the musician as a “great guy” and a “beautiful friend”.

“RIP Adam Neat. Absolutely devastated. Beers for you and I’ll see you on the other side,” one fan wrote.

“A crazy, inspiring and massively big hearted person had sadly left us and a big hole behind. RIP Adam,” wrote another.

His official Facebook account @AdamSkyOfficialhas confirmed his death.

“It is with great regret that we can confirm Adam Neat was involved in a fatal accident while trying to help a friend who had suffered multiple fractures in Bali on Saturday 4th May 2019,” it reads.

“Relatives and friends of Adam are travelling to Bali today and handling all arrangements. We ask you to respect the families privacy at this moment while we all come to terms with our tragic loss.”

A Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade spokesman said the department was providing consular assistance to the family of an Australian man who had died in Bali, but for privacy reasons it was unable to provide further details.
