Very sad hearing DJ Mehdi passed away yesterday. I was just listening to his and Thomas Bangalter’s track; “Signatune” today, when I was rehearsing my new dj system.
It has been reported that DJ Mehdi has died following a fatal accident in which he fell from a roof at his home in France. The incident happened last night and has shocked the dance community. Two other people have also been hospitalised. DJ Mehdi was 34-years-old. Taken from -> http://www.mixmag.net/2011/09/13/dj-mehdi-rip/

Too young to die. We lost many talented musicians n’ DJs this year, for example, Japanese people encountered shocking news of Rei Harakami in July, and that made me feel loss and end of adolescence. (I payed tribute to him at my “Happiness” compilation.)
Please don’t stop playing his nice tracks, deejays! Of course, I won’t stop doing that. Rest in peace, DJ Mehdi. - Kota.
