After the group separated, he worked with Kurtis Blow as a DJ and guitarist, providing significant contributions to "If I Ruled the World" and "The Breaks." Scattered singles like 1984's "One for the Treble" and 1985's "The DMX Will Rock" put him on the map as a solo artist; in 1987, a full-length album called Davy's Ride followed for Def Jam with DJ Hurricane doing some of the raps. Apart from occasional behind-the-scenes work on records, Davy DMX also appeared as a member of The Afros, a comical group featuring Kool Tee, DJ Kippy O and DJ Hurricane and was released on Jam Master Jay's label JMJ Records.

The group name stands for "A Funky Rhythmic Organization Of Sounds". Davey D currently runs his own web site http://www.daveyd.com/and is a hip hop historian. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
