- The cause of death is unknown at this stage.
Marcus Kaye, the long-serving UK artist known as Marcus Intalex and Trevino, has died.
Details surrounding Kaye's death are unclear, but this afternoon artists such as Boddika, DJ Zinc and Andy C posted news of his death via Twitter. "R.I.P my brother," said the drum & bass artist Mampi Swift. "This one of the saddest days in dnb history. Your music will live on in my sets."
Kaye had a long and fruitful career, working within both drum & bass and techno. He began releasing music in the '90s, and ran the popular Soul:r and Revolve:r labels. In 2011, Kaye released his debut album, 21, which marked 21 years of involvement with dance music. Although known for his standout drum & bass productions for a large portion of his career, in 2011 Kaye began the techno-focussed Trevino project and went on to release music with 3024, Hotflush Recordings, Klockworks and The Nothing Special.
