Lucky Boy Australian Tour
Saturday 19th May 2007

Fans of the infamous Ed Banger label would have no doubt heard that another Ed Banger artist is getting ready to tour. DJ Mehdi returns to Australia for the "Lucky Boy Tour" Perth, Sydney, Gold Coast and playing at 3rd Class in Melbourne. Mehdi was born and raised in Paris and has been producing for big name French hip hop artists since 1995. Those that caught him on his last visit in 2006 know that his sound goes way beyond the hip hop realm, in fact he has collaborated with the likes of Daft Punk, Chromeo, Cassius, Joakim, New Young Pony Club and many more. He has released two full-length LPs: 'The Story of Espion' and 'Lucky Boy', the latter on dance punk label Ed Banger. He is a resident DJ at the legendary Paris club Pulp, and often tours with Busy P and Justice. Mehdi's first single "I am Somebody" featured vocals from Chromeo and remixes by Kenny Dope from Masters at Work. The New EP "Lucky Girl" features new track by graffiti artist (and Mehdi's wife) Fafi , and remixes by Switch, Outlines and Surkin.
