The 10 Best Politically-Charged Tracks, according to Orbital
As mournful messages about the loss of DJ Mehdi are still swamping the internet, two recent sets by the French house producer have been released, which you can stream below. The first mix is from Mad Decent’s annual Block Party back in July, while the second set (what’s believed to be DJ Mehdi’s final mix) is a live summer mixtape that he played in Paris’s Social Club in August.
DJ Mehdi said something his sumer mixtape:
Damn it was a hot summer. Combination of the Carte Blanche Revue tour and Busy P+DJ Mehdi adventures kept me on the road almost non-stop since June and lack of updates here or there can attest.
Nevertheless, in partnership with the good blokes at Tsugi Magazine, I have the pleasure to offer you this new Summer Mixtape, mixed live at Paris Social Club in August. It’s that usual mixtape momentum that you guys know I like: starting quite slow, creeping up to a couple of current favourite hits, and finishing with a classic throwback and a Hip-Hop tune. 2011 Time Capsule business.
Last but not least, this mix is, quite humbly, dedicated to the people of my ancestors country, TUNISIA, for obvious reasons. Also, shout-out to my 2011 summer crew, from Paris to Toulouse, NYC to LA, and Bali to Tokyo.
