Garrett Falls Lockhart was an American electronic dance DJ, and record producer.
Garret Falls Lockhart in Richmond VA, and attended up through high school in Austin, Tx. After graduating there he attended college in Washington, D.C.. While still in college he began learning to DJ and had his first gig sophomore year. While there he built up his following playing under the name 'Glock' (a portmanteau of his name) at local clubs like Lima and the Sweet Spot.
Over time he gained some notoriety and gigs through compromising online accounts for various artists, labels, and venues. Given the nature of these events its difficult to fully discern between true unauthorized penetration and ad campaign for these claims. Either way it was an ongoing story for him over several years while working with several labels. This is referenced on his Armada Music profile page bio which states, "Making a name for himself by taking control of various social media accounts of record labels, media outlets, artists, and venues,..." .
A more specific reference to this was given in an earlier interview with EDMIdentity. When asked, "Montreal’s New City Gas was the latest victim of your exploits as you hacked their page effortlessly after they challenged you with a booking on the line. What made them such an easy target?" He responded:
What can I say, I really wanted to play Montreal. Don’t store your admin on an open facing network.
Attended High School and competed in Tennis at St. Stephen's Episcopal School in Austin, Tx There he was "was named to the school Honor Roll for four consecutive years." 
Attended George Washington University in Washington D.C from 2009 to 2013 when he graduated. There he was on the university tennis team until quitting the team his sophomore year to pursue music.

Attended and graduated from the Icon Collective music production school in Burbank, Ca starting in 2013. 
Music was released under a number of aliases over time, including Glock, Roniks, Fawks, and I_o. The I_o alias was started in 2017.
His major break came in 2017 as part of a compilation 'We-Are-Friends-Vol-7'  on Deadmau5’s label Mau5trap, leading to many EPs on the label over the next few years. This was the first release using the I_o moniker  that would be his most commercially successful. In December of that year he was named one of Billboard Dance's 'Ones to Watch'. 
Later came a major collaboration with composing and performing the song Violence (song)|Violence along with Grimes. Although it was a side project for her she liked it so much that she included it in her album and made it the first single released from it. By this time she was apparently already aware of his music as she called I_o to do work on the song. This helped establish his widespread notability and increased promotional exposure through credit in industry publications like Variety (magazine)|Variety where Jem Aswad wrote of the "synth-driven, soft-focus collaboration with DJ i_o".Positive reviews of the album, the song, and video for it mentioning his credit helped spread his name. Examples of important mainstream media mentions coming from being named a New York Times popular-music 'Critic Pick' by critic Jon Pareles  and the write up mentioning his collaboration in Rolling Stone. 
By the time of his death 'Violence' was his most successful in terms of chart performance. It spent 10 weeks on the Billboard 'Electronic Dance Music' chart, where it peaked at 19th on March 7th 2020.  In other national charts it peaked at 48 on Mexico Ingles Airplay and 31 on New Zealand Hot Singles .
Finally late in 2020 he was signed to the prestigious Armada Music label  while starting his own imprint named 'Label 444'. Label 444 and Armada Music were going to be used for different style releases. "He’s joined the Armada family for 2021, with promises of releasing dance smashes on the label. He will also start off the year with his own imprint, Label 444, where his hard underground sound will reside," as quoted from his Armada Music profile page in August 2020.
His death on November 23, 2020 was announced November 25, 2020 via social media on Instagram and Twitter, and music industry news sites like Billboard (magazine)|Billboard.com and NME. Details of his death were not released.
