Sometimes your ears fall in love. The first time I heard French producer DJ Mehdi live was at MoMa's PS1 back in September 2010. As I dig the 2011 crates this week on the blog I wanted to pay homage
to the great DJ Mehdi who the music scene lost back in September of this year. I put together some footage of Mehdi alongside fellow producer Riton at a small venue called the Liquid Room in Edinburgh, Scotland. Together under the French electro collective Ed Banger Records, they were Carte Blanche. Being the music geek that I am, the last time I heard Mehdi on top of the Standard at Le Bain I told him I followed him to Edinburgh, and I quote, said "you are the shit." Mehdi's energy and skills behind the tables moved the dance floor like no other. As many of his close friends in the scene have often tweeted and titled their tribute mixes, I say "Mehdi Forever". Repost en paix.
