In an interview with the Student Pocket Guide in January, Mr Truswell said: 'One of my favourite artists to work with was actually one of the first – Ghostface Killah from Wu Tang Clan. We formed a strong bond of mutual respect, due to our similar morals and views in life. I remember sitting talking after a show in a sushi bar a couple years ago chatting about life, and in his iconic voice he said to me: 'It's your life man, you gotta live it, always remember that everything is a blessing…' Almost a year later, himself and Raekwon's manager then got me access to work with Drake at Wireless festival, this really was a defining point for me and my career.'
The Wu-Tang Clan are one of the world's most successful and influential hop-hop acts, with 1997's Wu-Tang forever reaching number one in the United States and the United Kingdom.
Mr Truswell had also worked with acts such as Rudimental, Major Lazer and Chase and Status.
A JustGiving page set up in Mr Truswell's memory is aiming to raise £5,000 for mental health charity Mind. The charity was chosen by his family.
On the page, set up by a friend, it said Mr Truswell was 'such a caring and loving person, he would help anyone', adding: 'He was a very talented person.
'He loved music and partying. He loved life and the people around him. He made the most of life.
'He loved photography - many people in Norwich will know him for taking photos in nightclubs. And he was not a shy person. He would get up anywhere and in front of anyone and have a sing and play you his guitar.'
Police were continuing to investigate the circumstances around Mr Truswell's death, but it was not thought to be suspicious.
