I could sit here and list the dozens of musical icons, counter cultural legends, fashion heroes, art provocateurs and political revolutionaries that fill up the 20th Birthday edition of Dazed (our biggest issue ever!) but that would ruin the surprise. Yes, I know I’m seriously biased, but do yourself a favour and go pick up a copy this weekend, I promise you won’t be disappointed! And don’t forget to let us know which feature you enjoy the most!
On a personal note, I’d like to dedicate this month’s playlist to the memory of DJ Mehdi, who tragically passed away this week at the age of 34. A good friend of many people here at Dazed, and genuinely one of the coolest guys I’ve ever had the fortune of hanging out with, our thoughts are with his family, and of course everyone at Ed Banger Records. We can’t put into words how much we’re going to miss you and your music. Rest in peace. Twitter.com/TimNoakes
