"Nocturnal", we know him

"Nocturnal", we know him from the Hit Squad (guest features on PMD – "Never Watered Down" & "Knick Knack Part 2", EPMD – "Dungeon Master", Das EFX – "Someone Told Me"...) In '93 he co-produced the debut album for "Tonski-Spies" titled "Werewolf Personality", a 8 tracks strong tape only release on Rescue One Records. In the same year he created the character "Baby Boy" with a pitched up voice to spruce up and heat up some funky joints. A year later in 1994 he released "Da Funkee E.P.", which was a tape only release again with the 4 tracks: "Follow For Now" (different version than the one on "Strait Outta Jerzee") , "Tha Concept Might Break You", "Universal" and "Sway To Tha F.U.N.K". In the same year he handled the production for Skee Love's debut 12" single with the 2 tracks "Higher" and "Gangster Syndrom" and the debut EP from Quannie Quan titled "Every Which Way But Soft", he had a guest appearance on the track "Straight Off Da Dome", but the EP is unfortunatley unreleased. His third tape release "Sway To Tha Funk" is from 1995 and comes with two tracks and two skits: "Sway To The Funk" (different version as on Da Funkee E.P.), "Insanity" (Skit), "Can I Break Em Off" and "Universal" (Skit). The scratches and cuts were done by Dj Treacherous D and E.Z. Money. From '96 - '98 he was part of the Kevin Kieth & Dirty Dozen Radio Show on 105.9 f.m. W.N.W.K. (formerly W.H.B.I.). Kevin hired him to join the Show after an interview in '95 while he was working on the "Untouchable" project. The tracks of the project are "Untouchable", "Funkdafied Soul" (feat. Skee Love), "House Of The Rising Storm", "Mic Contact" and "Live From The Bricks" which features besides Skully and Kimo, the well known Tame One from the Boom Skwad / Artifacts! The Project was then only released through airplay on the show. He was too

usy with the Radio Show and other upcoming projects to give the "The Untouchable" a proper release. In his radio days in '96 he also teamed up with J-Force for a dope collabo track titled "Underground Ikonz". J-Force released two dope classic underground singles: Bull's Eye 12" (1995) and "For All Thoze / Runnin' On E" 12" (1996) with Marley Marl involved. 1996 was a very productive year, he produced for Skee Love the "Funkdafied Soul" EP, a tape only release with the 3 tracks: "Funkdafied Soul", "The Concept Might Break You" and "Higher". Skee Love asked Gee Rock to do his own version of "The Concept Might Break You", cause it always was a favorite tune from him. He did the production of the debut EP from Brown Hornet & The Stinga titled "Long Overdue". Gee Rock and Mis Fit appeared on the track "Freestyle Fanatics", Brown Hornet & The Stinga later changed their name to Left Hook Right Hand. Brown Hornet aka Double O appeared with guest features on two Redman albums on the tracks "Cloze Ya Doorz" and "Bricks Two". Also he produced the split vinyl EP from N.I.G. Dee and Tonski-Spies in '96 released on Rescue One Records. The track "Rough And Rugged" from the EP is featuring Gee Rock, Tonski- Spies and RJ (aka R-Sun from Native Trinity). Native Trinity already had a dope 12" single out in '94 titled "Laws Of The Land / Check It Out". Here we have two another dope unreleased tracks from '96 called "For The Braincellz" (feat. Franky 2 Backs & Stroke One) "Brickz Brigade" (feat. Case Da Champ, Waz Most, Quannie Quan & Stroke One.
