We still have Mehdi on our minds over here at Magnetic and no don't see that changing anytime soon. It’s so sad to see one of EDM’s true mavens life cut short from such a freak accident. I’ve talked about Mehdi and the Ed Banger crew more than a few times today—a shit load over the last couple of days.
I know there were a lot of huge acts at this past Hard, but the Carte Blanche set was truly one of the standouts. Seeing him and Riton on stage larger than life with an ear-to-ear smile while Pedro Winter bounced around hyping the crowd. It’s ingrained in my memory for life.
Following Riton’s Twitter, I came across this gallery highlighting Carte Blanche’s last two shows in Koko, London and Bestival. Their good friend Kim documented it all. Here are a few pix that put a smile on my face. Check Riton’s website for the full gallery. Our thoughts are with you and yours.
R.I.P. Mehdi. We Salute You.
