Season 1 - 6 x 40 minutes | World Premiere
In French, subtitled in English 
Episodes 1 & 2

In presence of director Thibaut de Longeville and artists Mokobé, Pedro Winter, Manu Key and Teddy Corona.


The story of the late DJ/producer DJ Mehdi, a young Parisian of Arabic descent who went from defining the sound of French rap’s most hardcore acts (including Kery James, 113, African Mafia and Booba), to collaborating with French music’s finest musicians
 (MC Solaar, Diam’s, Akhenaton, -M- and more) to becoming one of the brightest ambassadors of French Electronica on the world stage alongside Justice, Cassius, Daft Punk and the Ed Banger Records family.

A powerful story connecting the two most popular musical genres of the past 25 years, hip-hop & electronica, through the uncanny journey of a music genius essential to both cultures, yet largely unknown to the mainstream.


Note from the artistic direction

DJ Mehdi, a witness as well as a protagonist of his time, has affected every single person he has crossed paths with, from the rap industry to the electronic scene. By mixing archive images with moving testimonies, DJ Mehdi : Made in France, paints the portrait of a genius, but also of an era.
