Pedro Winter (Busy P) just released almost an hour worth of new Mehdi material today in order to pay homage to the star producer. The project apparently was done a while ago and was actually Mehdi’s homage to J Dilla, another legendary producer who is tragically taken from us.
“back in 2006, Dj Mehdi’s hommage to Dilla
we did something like 200 promo CDs for friends
I think it’s time for this music to be shared and enjoyed by all of us
I still can’t believe what’s happening, so I press play and I listen to my best friend’s music.
non-produced and un-mixed by Dj Mehdi, NSI.
Jay Dee rest in peace
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.
- Pedro Winter
Released by: Ed Banger Records
Release date: Jan 1, 2006″
Pedro left this mix rough and exactly how Mehdi last touched it which is bone-chilling to listen to yet per usual, Mehdi has created great and interesting music that should be respected for what it is, exactly that.
Give it a listen and download it and tell your friends. RIP Mehdi and long live Ed Banger.
