Mad Decent’s Artist Pronounced Dead After Fatal Car Accident

Samisoni Koroitamudu, also known as Big Makk, an Florida DJ and member of the Mad Decent roster of artists, has reportedly died in a car crash this morning in Casselberry, Florida.

It happened on Lake Drive near All Faiths Memorial Park Cemetery in Casselberry shortly before 7 a.m. when a Dodge Charger carrying three passengers crashed into a tree across causing the car to incinerate and take the lives of all inside.

Police said it’s possible speed played a factor.

“I don’t see any physical evidence in the roadway of braking; usually there would be some skid marks,” said Sgt. William Nas.

Big Makk, who was one of the early innovators of the moombahton EDM sub-genre, started his path toward a career in DJing at the age of 13 when he began spinning hip-hop. He also hosted a weekly “Shake ‘n’ Bass” night in Orlando, which was still running up until his loss of life.

Our thoughts go out to his family and friends
