Celebrated French producer and disc jockey "DJ Mehdi" has died aged 34, his promoter Phunkster confirmed on Tuesday, as reports online suggested he had been killed in a fall during a party.

The company was not able to confirm the cause of Mehdi Faveris-Esaadi's death, but the French freesheet 20 Minutes reported on its website that he had been killed when part of his home collapsed as he celebrated with friends.

Born in the Paris suburbs to a family of Tunisian origin, DJ Mehdi was best known for staging nights of dance hip-hop crossover music and for producing records with French rappers MC Solaar and Akhenaton.
