Xochil AKA DJ Furoche was a well known and highly respected
Brooklyn DJ, engineer and producer.
According to Gothamist, his passing
"sent shock waves through the Brooklyn creative community."
"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," eulogizes Nappy on his blog Do
Brooklyn Vegan reports,
"Furoche was scheduled to perform with Gangsta Boo of Three 6 Mafia in
Denver this weekend."
She mourned his passing on Instagram
noting "Im so blessed to have known
you. I know you would want me 2b strong but this isn't right & I'm weak
right now. Life is way to short for the Good ppl. I'm lost and I'm numb and
extremely heart broken. I'll miss you Man. As you would say #TurboRarePhoto Of
us New Years Eve 2013... I brung in my NYE with one genuine man who was like my
brother. No lie. I love you Zack. Now you can rest."
A memorial Facebook page was set up for Zach by his mother.
He was fatally struck by the driver of a vehicle while riding his bike
in Bushwick. According to friends, he was on his way to a
job interview when he was struck and taken to Woodhull Medical Center, but,
died at Bellevue
