Kirill Aleksandrovich Tolmatsky (Russian: Кири́лл Алекса́ндрович Толмацкий; 22 July 1983 – 3 February 2019[2]), better known by his stage name Detsl (Russian: Децл), was a Russian hip hop artist. In 2000, he released his debut album Who? You to massive success and quickly became a teen idol of the early 2000s in Russia.[3] In 2001, his second album Street Fighter was released.

He died on 3 February 2019 in Izhevsk at the age of 35 from a sudden heart attack after performing his live set at the private birthday party.[2] In a 2007 interview, Detsl talked about faking his own death at the exact same age while performing at a concert in the same city he would actually die in.[4]
