DJ Mehdi recently passed away at the far too young age of 34 and while he was primarily known as an electro/dance artist labelmate Feadz showcases his impressive hip-hop history and musical versatility in this tribute mix.
FEADZ – Tribute Mix To DJ MEHDI
Also included is Mehdi’s tribute to Dilla, which was pressed as a limited edition but has been released to the web now by Ed Banger head honcho Busy P in this eerily fitting situation.
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
