DJ Mehdi – Loukoums

By now you all have heard about the untimely death of French DJ/Producer and Ed Banger staple DJ Mehdi at 34 years young. Peanut Butter Wolf released this today via Facebook:

“Damn Mehdi, how come I didn’t know about this till today:”

An homage to the late great J Dilla and his Donuts project, (one of the most legendary Hip Hop records in the last decade, with Jay Dee dying 3 days after it’s release), Mehdi has done his interpretation of the record. Donuts really solidified the short beat tape game (31 cuts in all), and forged a new path for many producers and beat makers of all kind since then.

“Hope you enjoy these rough mixes and un-polished sounds, as I pay hommage to ‘one of the greatest minds to ever make beats,’ Mr James Yancey, better known as JAY DEE, also know as DILLA ”- DJ Mehdi, 2006

“Based on the DONUTS album concept, these are demos, out-takes and unreleased gems from various records I worked on before and during the making of LUCKY BOY, my next album. Stuff comes from MEGALOPOLIS, 113 DEGRES and SHEITAN soundtrack mainly, but some is older too. Hope you enjoy these rough mixes and un-polished sounds, as I pay hommage to ‘one of the greatest minds to ever make beats,’ Mr James Yancey, better known as JAY DEE, also know as DILLA.” – Mehdi, 2006

You know we love our Dilla here at FMF, and just wanted to say a big R.I.P. to another talented cat who left the music world too early. R.I.P. Mehdi.
