Brooklyn DJ Furoche (real name: Xochil Zack Fortune) died yesterday after being struck by a vehicle while riding his bike at Hart and Broadway in Bushwick Brooklyn. Blog Do Androids Dance offers up this Euology:
Furoche was an incredible producer, engineer, and DJ He had his hands in screen printing, cinematography, and a million other ventures. The stories that he’s left behind are legendary, he was one of the most caring and kind souls that music has ever connected me to, and we lost a great artist and a staple in the New York party scene way too early. Ma-Less has had him at her Shake ‘n Bass party in Orlando numerous times. He was a personal friend, and we were planning on moving to LA together. This loss is painful, and it’s personal.
Furoche was scheduled to perform with Gangsta Boo of Three 6 Mafia in Denver this weekend. A memorial fund has been created to raise money for Fortune’s funeral expenses if you’d like to donate. RIP, Furoche. You can listen to one of his recent mixes and a track he made with Gangsta Boo below…
