Darc Mind is an underground hip hop duo from Queens, New York.[1] It consists of rapper Kev Roc and producer X-Ray.[2]


Darc Mind recorded their debut album Symptomatic of a Greater Ill for Loud Records between 1995 and 1997.[3] The duo released the single "Outside Looking In" in 1996. "Visions of a Blur," a track from the album, appeared on the Soul in the Hole soundtrack in 1997. However, Symptomatic of a Greater Ill had never seen the light of day until it was released on Anticon in 2006.[4]

Darc Mind performed the song "Outside Looking In" live on KEXP-FM at Gigantic Studios on October 30, 2006.[5] In the same year, the duo released Bipolar on Mindbenda Recordings.[6]
