DJ Mehdi – Lucky Boy (Outlines Remix)

Luxar Tribute to Mehdi by Luxar Records

This morning came with tragic news, DJ Mehdi has passed on, according to various sources Mehdi FaverisEssadi was at home Tuesday, more than likely re-cooperating from a long touring season, when the roof of his home collapsed, He was reportedly celebrating his 34th Birthday with friends on his roof, this just a few days after updating his blog and releasing a new mix tape, It’s almost unreal. Anyone who makes me laugh, makes me smile, and makes me dance is considered a friend, today we all lost a FIERCE friend, may you rest and remix in peace monsieur Mehdi. I will leave you with a few words from other artists who have conveyed their remorse at this sad loss.

The Bloody Beetroots’ Bob Cornelius Rifo “R.I.P. Dj MEHDI. The void he has left behind is unbearable. Love you, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo.”

Just Blaze “I’m literally shaking right now. We just played together last week. Heart goes out to his family and loved ones. RIP mehdi.”

Steve Aoki “devastated, Rest in peace to my brother forever here and in the after life DJ Mehdi. I love u and miss u.”

Fake Blood “Mehdi, my friend. You will be so missed.
Doing this DJng thing, you get to meet and know a lot of people, but there are always a small few you would count as friends – the good guys – those you are always so pleased to see on a shared bill or event. Mehdi was one of those. A true gentleman, and such a great guy.
I am devastated right now.”

Erol Alkan “It’s just starting to sink in, It was always a pleasure to be in Medhi’s company. We’ve lost a great DJ and friend. I’ll miss you. RIP

D.I.S.C.O. TEXAS “this is a sad day. Mehdi is one of the nicest people we had the pleasure to meet and share a booth with. Rest in peace – you will be missed”

Fresh off a double tour that had kept him on the road since June, DJ Mehdi had put together a summer Mix Tape for Tsugi Magazine, it was mixed live back in august at Paris Social Club. He had shared it on his blog, not 3 days ago, ready to get back to making us new memories, so let’s take this and make the memories he’d be proud to be a part in orchestrating, memories that will undoubtedly make him live forever in our hearts and radios.
