Detroit drum & bass DJ/producer Mark David Fisher has died, aged 50.

The influential musician, who helped establish Detroit Electronic Music Festival, passed away on the 2nd January from a brain haemorrhage.

Also known to fans as MD!, Dluv and Nefarious, Fisher founded Detroit Luv - an online message board for Detroit's electronic community, created prior to the introduction of social media.

Detroit Techno Militia, a collective from the city, shared a post describing Fisher as a "connector" who will be "sorely missed".

A memorial service will take place on the 18th January at 11AM, at the Hartford Memorial Baptist Church, located at 18700 James Couzens Fwy.
