Sach O used to bump Princes de La Ville on a near daily basis in high school.

Sad news for the world of beatmaking today as Parisian producer DJ Mehdi passes away. While his international audience knew him best as a new school electro producer affiliated with Ed Banger, I’ll always remember him for his early Hip-Hop work with French collective Mafia 1 K Fry. Combining soul samples and world music elements to distinctively up-tempo drums, his work with groups such as 113 was uniquely Parisian and helped French Hip-Hop find its own voice as it rose to commercial prominence at the turn of the millennium. He shall be missed. More Youtube tributes after the jump.
