A Facebook post from a photographer who knew both men said: "Sad times today with the news that two of Ibiza's finest passed away yesterday."

The post confirmed the death of Marcos who is believed to have worked at the island's iconic nightclub Amnesia.

It read: "Marcos Moran was the first and last person I saw when going to work at Amnesia every week for years.

"We rarely said much more tbh but there was a unique friendship there that built up over 10 years.

"I'll miss the many smiles he sent for birthday wishes and it'll be sad to not have him on the door when I go to Amnesia next."

Others paid tribute to the doorman said: "I can't believe this.

"Such a heavy day.

"Marcos was one of my bestest at Amnesia.

"He had a pure soul."

Another tribute said: "I hadn't seen him for 4 years until Amnesia opening this year and I know what you mean about just a friendly face at the door.

"I'm super sad today."

The post also paid tribute to Scots DJ Jamie Roy, who's death was announced by relatives yesterday.

It read: "Jamie Roy truly was the soul of any party, even if there wasn't a party going on, he made it feel that way.

"But beyond the party, there was an inherent friendliness to Jamie that meant whenever I saw him, he gave you a warm embrace with his arms and that glorious accent of his."

In an earlier post, the DJ's family said: "Jamie passed away yesterday.

"Jamie was a much loved and talented son, brother, nephew and uncle and loved by his many friends and colleague both within the music industry and beyond that.

"We are absolutely heartbroken."

Tributes have been paid to the Dumfries-born lad on social media.

Jamie's brother posted a series of photographs of the pair and said: "So devastated and completely lost for words.

"I can't even begin to describe the pain I've began to feel and what the loss of my brother Jamie means to me.

"I was immensely proud to watch and see you live your dreams and achieve so much in your career playing every club/ festival that we could only dream about as young lads... you lived life at 1000mph Jamie and lived it to the fullest!!

"I'm super grateful to have experienced so many beautiful memories with you brother and deeply saddened about the trips we had planned for the near future."

The musician, 33, has a large following in Ibiza, where he lived for years playing his music.

He also has his remixes played on BBC Radio 1 for delighted fans over the years.

Jamie started in the music industry running raves in his hometown in Dumfries while he was also working as a plumber, according to size?blog.

He later quit to put all of his attention on his music and was offered a residency in Ibiza in 2015.
