We woke up to very sad news today, the passing of one of the greatest Electro Producers. DJ Mehdi (Mehdi Favéris-Essadi, 1977 – 13 September 2011) of Ed Banger Records and half of the duo, Carte Blanche, is well respected in the dance community. We want to pay tribute and share our thoughts and some of our favorite works by this amazing artist.
“RIP Mehdi. I didn’t know you, but I was definitely influenced and changed by you.” – JSJ
“Too sad to put into words” – Sharkk Music
“One of the songs I listen to, to put me in a super happy mood is “Burial” by Miike Snow, DJ Medhi Remix.” – TOM SRVO
“One of my all-time favorite songs [I Am Somebody]. RIP DJ Mehdi.” – Chíc Bangs
“…he was so adorable at coachella, dancing along the stage. :( Let’s all listen to this song [Signatune] in memory of him, one of my favorites.” – Jessie Wood
Just four days ago, DJ Mehdi released his 2011 Summer Mixtape, Tunisia, and shared these sentiments…
“…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.

May you rest in peace, DJ Mehdi, and may your family and friends be uplifted with an abundance of love at this difficult time.
Much love and respect,
G Elect Presents!
