A representative from Mehdi’s PR company told celebrity website TMZ the gathering at Medhi’s home was held to celebrate the birthday of DJ Riton.

After news of his death began to come to light, Mehdi’s fans and collaborators took to Twitter to express their condolences.

Bob Cornelius Rifo from electro group The Bloody Beetroots tweeted: “R.I.P. Dj MEHDI. The void he has left behind is unbearable. Love you, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo.”

Groove Armada said: “One of the loveliest men I have ever met. Massive condolences to his family.”

Medhi leaves behind his wife Fafi, who is a famous graffiti artist and former model.

Adonis – We’re Rockin Down The House

Another classic 303 cut by Adonis on Trax Records.

Whenever I hear this I always think back to the times I heard Simon Caldwell drop this one at Mad Racket on the wooden dancefloor at Marrckville Bowling Club Sydney, it has been a while since I been to one of their parties but they always deliverd with the music, one of the few parties still flying the flag for chicago & deep house sounds  in Sydney.

ACID HOUSE CLASSIC: Maurice Joshua – This is Acid (TRAX)


Maurice JoshuaThis is Acid (TRAX)

(Download RARE Original ACID MIX)

In the 1980s, Joshua was active as a DJ and producer in the early days of the house music scene. His earliest productions were released on the Trax Records label. In the early 1990s, Joshua began producing remixes of songs by artists like Ce Ce Peniston, Malaika and many pop artists, including Michael Jackson. He continues to remix to this day.

Joshua is best known for his 1989 number one Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart hit “This Is Acid (A New Dance Craze).” The hit version of this song was a remix by UK DJ Les Adams, who pitted its spoken male vocals by “Hot Hands Hula” Malone against a combination of regional house music sounds of the day, including samples of sirens and sexual screaming voices in the background.

Joshua’s most famous production work was with Kim English and pop group Destiny’s Child. His partnership with the group’s leader Beyoncé was compared to the partnership of Mariah Carey and David Morales, because like Carey and Morales, Joshua and Beyoncé often work closely together to have Beyoncé re-sing her vocals for club mix version of her hit singles.[citation needed] At The 46th Annual Grammy Awards 2004, his remix of Beyoncé’s massive hit “Crazy in Love“, known as “Krazy in Luv (Maurice’s Nu Soul remix)” won Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical.
