NSR: DJ Mehdi R.I.P.
The older folks in my family always said that death and birth come in threes. The recent, premature loss of Bobby Rhine may have been the 1st of a troika for me as news came this a.m. of the passing of one of my favorite DJ's, France's DJ Mehdi, a vital member of the Ed Bangers crew.
If you have no idea what Mehdi sounds like check out his video for "I Am Somebody"; it's probably his most accessible song and the video is really playful, really fun. DJ Mehdi is dead; long live DJ Mehdi!
