RIP DJ Mehdi

Mehdi Favéris-Essadi aka DJ Mehdi has died at the age of 34, according to Pitchfork and confirmed by his publicist.

The french producer reportedly died after an undisclosed “accident.”

According to Le Monde, the PR agency Phunkster confirmed to 20 Minutes that there aren’t any more details about the death of Mehdi, though it seems that he fell from a mezzanine level with some other people. Others are reporting he fell off a roof.

DJ Mehdi recently became known with Ed Banger Record and has worked with and remixed artists like Architecture in Helsinki, Chromeo and Miike Snow.

Chromeo, who worked with Mehdi on I Am Somebody, paid tribute to the musician on Twitter, saying: “We lost our brother. No words.”

Another young musician lost, RIP.
