The UK drum & bass community has united in search of one of the scene’s most distinctive hosts MC AD.
It emerged on DJ Hype’s Facebook profile yesterday that the MC – real name Alvin Donald, pictured on the right – has not been contactable by phone for considerable time and hasn’t turned up to any of the shows he was booked to play at.
Other figures in the drum & bass scene have backed Hype’s appeal with Andy C, S.P.Y, Teebee, Breakage, Marky, The Prototypes and many more all sharing the plea on both Twitter and Facebook in a bid to find him.
As yet, there is no official statement from the police and anyone who has any information whatsoever is urged to contact either the police, Alvin’s family or DJ Hype via his Facebook.
MC AD has been a key ambassador and international host for drum & bass for many years. News of his disappearance is shocking and out of character. We hope that with the help of social media, we will eventually locate the hugely respected artist. Please share DJ Hype’s post and spread the word.
UPDATE: Good news, MC AD has been found!
