dj mehdi passes away at 34

Truly, truly sad.

This morning, we learned that French producer Mehdi Faveris-Essadi, otherwise known as DJ Mehdi, passed away at 34-years-old due to an "accident."

DJ Mehdi is a big name in the French electro/house scene, and he's worked with many well-known artists including Chromeo, Miike Snow, and Architecture in Helsinki.

Recently, Mehdi's single Signatune was reworked by Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter, selling 9,000 downloads in the U.S.

Mehdi leaves behind his wife Fafi, who is a renowned French graffiti artist.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mehdi's wife, and his other loved ones during this incredibly difficult time.

    This is like a punch in the gut, nobody should die like he did and especially not in the prime of his life. My thoughts go out to his family and friends. He will be missed and he will live on through the music.

    Anyone know how he passed away? 'Accident' doesn't say much. Overdose or car accident comes to mind he was way too young.

    Re: Rocketboy – On Wikipedia it says him and a couple of friends were on a roof to celebrate a birthday when the roof collapsed.

    Putting accident in quotations implies that it wasn't an accident. The damn roof collapsed. Unless he rigged the roof to collapse, it's a damn accident. What a terrible way to go…and once again, Perez, "bravo" to your "reporting". Douche.
