Ladies and Gents: DJ Mehdi

While Ed Banger Records (Myspace) is well know for their club banging stable of electro artists, far and away DJ Mehdi (Myspace) is my favorite of the crew.

Asides from Feadz (Myspace), Mehdi is one of the few hip hop artists on the label. Mehdi's beats bring it back to the old school with a small dosage of the French electro love that seems to be setting just about every hip blog on fire lately.

Mehdi has worked with one of my other favorite old school sound revivalists Chromeo (Myspace) as well as getting his super amazingly artistic wife Fafi (Myspace) on the track Lucky Boy. He's been remixed by some great artists too like Surkin (Myspace), Outlines (Myspace) and a certain someone named Thomas Bangalter (of Daft Punk).

He's also done some great remixes of his own. He's worked his magic on Notorious B.I.G., Etienne De Crecy, New Young Pony Club and most recently, Ghostface Killah.

DJ Mehdi - Pony Rocking
