DJ Subroc (1973 - 1993)
DJ Subroc (1973 - 1993) was a hip hop artist and a member of KMD, Constipated Monkey & Monsta Island Czars. His first group, KMD was formed by him along with his brother Zev Love X (MF DOOM) and Jade 1 who would later be known as Rodan, but later replaced by Onyx the Birthstone Kid. His first release was the LP, Mr.Hood, on Elektra Records, in 1991. Although production is either credited to KMD or Stimulated Dummies, he produced all under the name KMD, due to the fact he was underage at the release of the album. After further production for artists like 3rd Bass, MF Grimm, Megalon aka Tommy Gunn, Kurious Jorge, & Zev Love X, who would later be known as MF DOOM, he died tragically in 1993 after being hit by a car while attempting to cross the Long Island Expressway. His death put production of the KMD album Black Bastards to a halt and marked the end of KMD, although Black Bastards was later released. Many of what people believe to be MF DOOM productions, are actually that of the late, Dj Subroc, instrumentals like "Peach Extract", "Hands Of Doom", "Rainblood" (Pt.1 & 2), "Hoe Cakes", and, "Scientific Civilization"
