Life takes many unexpected twists and turns. The only thing that we can do is cope and move on. The electronic world lost a major influence today. As many of you have probably already heard, DJ Mehdi has passed away after a roof collapsed.

From Paris, Mehdi’s background was beats, blues and hip-hop orientated. He collaborated with many different artists and was a huge part of the Ed Banger and Hard Presents… organizations. Releasing his first album in 1996, Mehdi saw the evolution of electronic music and created his own unique style along the way. Signed to Ed Banger, he recently released a podcast.

DJ Mehdi, your friends, family, fans and the electronic music world will miss you. Rest in peace.
