Big Stereo, Palms Out Sounds and CallMeMickey have all lauded the man that is DJ Mehdi. This Ed Banger Records DJ pumps out that typical french-DJ-synth-sound (or Mehdi's myspace says he "gets so cosmic with the synths that it's as if you've woken up in an alternative 1983"). His sound is so infectious and impossible not to move to.
Cult French rap producer with no boundaries, Mehdi will release his second solo album Lucky Boy before the summer. In the meantime, please enjoy his comeback single I am somebody, a hybrid electro-hip-pop affair with the voice of fellow Canadian gangsta-poppers CHROMEO.
