As the dance community continues to mourn the loss of DJ Mehdi, we thought we’d pay tribute to the longtime Ed Banger alum by sharing a Dam-Funk tribute and two recent sets—one from Mad Decent’s annual Block Party, and what’s believed to be Mehdi’s final mix. Here’s what the producer/turntable technician said about it on his official site:
Damn it was a hot summer. Combination of the CARTE BLANCHE REVUE tour and BUSY P+DJ MEHDI adventures kept me on the road almost non-stop since June and lack of updates here or there can attest.
Nevertheless, in partnership with the good blokes at TSUGI MAGAZINE, I have the pleasure to offer you this new SUMMER MIXTAPE, mixed live at Paris Social Club in August. It’s that usual mixtape momentum that you guys know I like: starting quite slow, creeping up to a couple of current favourite hits, and finishing with a classic throwback and a Hip-Hop tune. 2011 Time Capsule business.
Last but not least, this mix is, quite humbly, dedicated to the people of my ancestors country, TUNISIA, for obvious reasons. Also, shout-out to my 2011 summer crew, from Paris to Toulouse, NYC to LA, and Bali to Tokyo.
Have a listen below…
