RIP DJ Mehdi | Featured Track Pocket Piano

Renowned elecro producer DJ Mehdi (on Ed Bangers) died in a tragic accident Tuesday September 13th while celebrating his 34th birthday on the roof of his home in Paris. The roof collapsed, killing Medhi and injuring three others.


On Twitter, DJ Cut Killer was apparently the first to make news of Mehdi’s death public. Writing in French, the Moroccan-born DJ said, ‘DJ Mehdi !!! There are no words to tell you the sorrow which I feel… A friend goes from there… Rest in peace fréro.’ –  Spin Magazine’s Marc Hogan 

Chromeo tweeted, “We lost our brother. No words.”

Indeed, there are not enough words to be said of his music, his influence, talent, passion and his life and untimely passing. However, we still try to pay tribute as best we can. With remixes and messages flooding the internet. Here’s what others are saying:
