Two Armadillos and King Roc's Martin Dawson has died

House producer and one half of the Two Armadillos, Martin Dawson [right], has died. 

Dawson was hospitalised on November 2, having been found collapsed on the floor of his studio after suffering an aneurysm in his forehead. Resident Advisor today report that Dawson has died.

As well as his work with Giles Smith in Two Armadillos, Dawson had collaborated with Catz & Dogs and Andre Crom, and released a solo album, Sunday Smoking, on Moodmusic last year. Prior to his work under his real name, he’d recorded as King Roc, releasing on labels like 1Trax and Bugged Out! Dawson was a friend of many at FACT, Phonica and The Vinyl Factory, and our thoughts are with his friends, collaborators and family.
