From today on September 13 is not only the day music lost Tupac Shakus but DJ Mehdi as well. The French electro and hip-hop producer was one of the key figures of the Ed Banger label. He reportedly lost his life by falling off the roof of his life, though little of the circumstances are known so far. Mehdi, born Mehdi Favéris-Essadi, was well-known for his work with Daft Punk, Chromeo, Akhenaton and many more. He was 34 years old and leaves behind his wife, cartoonist Fafi.

Below are some responses to the horrible news from the music twittersphere and two of his biggest hits.

1982 was when Jaap van der Doelen aka J.Monkey shot his way out his mom dukes. A mere two years later he was already battling Big Brother and The Illuminati. Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes (about music, mostly), hosts a radio show and designs graphics for a living. He lives in The Netherlands where he continues to be winning.
