R.I.P. DJ Mehdi: French Producer Suffers Tragic Accident
The popular French music producer DJ Mehdi died on Tuesday at the age of 34 when he was fatally injured after falling from the roof of his Paris home.
After seeing the success of dance music producers like Daft Punk, DJ Mehdi decided to venture out from his hip hop background and transitioned into the electro dance world, which proved to be a great move.
After signing with Ed Banger Records, Mehdi collaborated with a number of big names, including MC Solarr, Daft Punk, Cassius, Carol King, and Chromeo who recently tweeted: “We lost our brother. No words.”
Hip Hop producer Just Blaze, stunned by the news, tweeted, “I’m literally shaking right now. We just played together last week. Heart goes out to his family and loved ones. RIP mehdi.”
Dubstep icon Skream, who also had just performed with Mehdi. “RIP DJ Medhi [sic] … can’t believe I was with you Saturday … I’m speechless for the loss of DJ Mehdi. Sending all my love to his beautiful family and to Pedro Winter and Ed Banger Records in Paris.”
