One of the most talked about collaborations in quite some time, Carte Blanche are a duo comprising DJs Mehdi & Riton who are both individually big stars of the scene in their own right. Ed Banger head honcho Busy P snatched the demos that were bouncing back and forth between the two. Five tracks of game changing beats, a shout-out to the masters that doesn't overly rely on nostalgia. Mixed by big bass master Alex Gopher, the record includes club monster 'Gare Du Nord' as well as the vexatiously catchy 'Do! Do! Do!', featuring Kid Sister. DJ Mehdi has been involved in music since 1995 but he first came to our attention proper with 2006's 'Lucky Boy' album on Ed Banger. Since 'Lucky Boy' he's been in demand worldwide ever since, touring with Justice and A-Trak, remixing people like Santigold and Busta Rhymes, as well as dropping his own major dancefloor bombs in the name of 'Signatune', 'Pocket Piano' and 'I Am Somebody'. The Second part of the duo, Riton started out with the Northern vibrations of Grand Central Recordings to become the most stable asset in the Radio Soulwax family and tour. Remixing LCD Soundsystem and Crookers to breaking the number one spot in the Kraut Rock charts in 2008 with his Eine Kleine Nacht Musik project on Modular Records. Things all set up for a huge night at Transmission relaunching at Tripod on December 4th with two DJs, four decks, one mixer, and a TR 909 drum machine. All for the very reasonable price of €15.
