Following the tragic passing of the iconic French Hip-Hop & Electro producer DJ Mehdi last week, his home label Ed Banger Records released this mix by the man himself done in tribute to J Dilla in 2006.
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. – DJ Mehdi
