Goddamnit, he was so good and talented. What a loss :(
i was just notified by deadmau5 on my facebook came here too see if it was true :(
Why was he on a roof? Putting out a fire or just raising it?
huge inspiration to the french house scene and pretty much all modern music. rip
Wow, can't say how many times i've pumped mehdi stuff in my car.
Just seems like the right place to have him heard.
Was one of my fave djs on ed banger records
DJ Mehdi fell off the roof? No, scratch that, the roof collapsed, then he fell.
I haven't watched that vid, is that signature? One of his best songs.
also, signature isn't house, it's french electro.
The nation matters because it's part of the classification. Different regions have different sounding music of the same genre. Not to mention the French are essentially the trend-setters when it comes to modern electronic music.
yeh fair enough
Ed Banger will never be the same without him; he was Busy P's right hand man and best friend.
All types of electro has it's own sound, and the sound deffers by region of the world. French elctro is going to sound different from underground UK electro and so on.
Electronic music in france, is much like the french fashion industry. It's very trendy and while its very popular, also has an extensive underground image.
Repose en paix.
What of Carte Blanche now? No one can replace him :(
Such a shame he has died really, I didn't realise till I looked him up a little while ago that I have listened and liked so much stuff he has had an involvement in.
God damnit, I just saw it on facebook, and decided to make a thread about it.
He has my respect.
Ed Banger will never be the same mark my words.
What the fuck... this is terrible. I loved Dj Mehdi, brilliant artist. I saw him live in Brooklyn for my 18th birthday; can't believe he is dead. The concert was mostly filled with a lot of disinterested Brooklyn hipsters, but I really enjoyed myself and I waved and made a rock on sign to Mehdi and he waved back. He was a really chill dude and talented artist. What a loss to the Ed Banger crew and electronic music in general. Rest in peace, Mehdi.
Chromeo postponed their show because of his death, and will be playing "I Am Somebody" first thing when they go on.
