Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1981 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.22

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1981 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.22
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2016-11-02

From a groovy/tropical point of view, Interesting cover songs from 1981 weren't that easy to find. The sound of Sly & Robbie, present twice in this mix (with productions for The Tamlins or Bits & Pieces), was an obvious choice, but we've also dug up for you some classic soul, early electro/hip hop, New Orleans backbeat, deep reggae and leftfield grooves. Even with the hardest constraints, the Paris DJs sound rises like a phoenix everytime (no Conchita pun intended).

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1980 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.21

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1980 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.21
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2016-09-23

Here we are in the deep sea of the 1980s hunting for cool and groovy cover songs. The Betino's Record Store in Paris pointed us towards Gnonnas Pedro's version of James Brown 'I Got You' but we we had mixed and mastered the selection a few hours earlier so it didn't make the cut. Someone on facebook asked if we played Snatch's version of 'Another Brick In The Wall' but we didn't. Digging into this decade is a different kind of fun than the 60s or the 70s, and we think we managed to find some very exciting numbers. You'll let us know what you think. And suggestions for 1981 and 1982 are more than welcome!

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Jazz For Tiziano

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Jazz For Tiziano
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2016-09-05

Tiziano was one of the top backers of Paris DJs' third crowdfunding campaign during the summer of 2015. He choose the reward with the 15 CDs and the exclusive mix, saying: "I like the music you offer and the idea of getting an exclusive cooked just for me got me interested. I like jazz and experimental music, I grew up with rock. I ESPECIALLY like trumper (Jon Hassel, Paolo Fresu, Mark Isham, Miles Davis of course, etc.). So if you could blend your selections with some trumpet, some jazz…". Damn! This one was not easy. It took us months to figure out something fitting those directions, while still being essentially a Paris DJs thing. Thankfully, Tiziano was patient, and loved the mix. He also gladly accepted that we share an mp3 of it with the rest of the world, so here you go. Enjoy!

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1979 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.20
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2016-08-12

20 years already! This series of mixes, of cover songs recorded or released during the same year, started with 1960, and we've now reached 1979! The 1960s and the 1970s have been fully covered — pun intended. For this closing chapter on the seventies, we've been diggin' heavily into Jamaican music once again, with reggae adaptations of The Drifters, Sam Theard, Ann Peebles or Bob Dylan, and a reggae/disco take on a Chic classic. But there's also a slowed-down but very groovy version of The Crusaders' hit 'Street Life', a really tight and soulful cover of Hot Chocolate, the traditional 'Misirlou' in nearly-cheesy disco fashion, a James Brown cover (there's always at least a cool one every year), Marvin Gaye revisited in punk-funk mode, or Lalo Schifrin on a worldbeat tip! We even cheated a bit since the last one, 'Mission Impossible' by Lizzy Mercier Descloux, extracted from a recent reissue of her 1979 album 'Press Color', was actually recorded at Carnegie Hall Studio in NY in 1980 — hinting at what's coming next : the 80s!!

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1978 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.19
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2016-04-17

Damn things are not getting easier as I'm approaching the 1980s. In 1978 there's just SO MUCH of disco in the groovy records. There's also a vast amount of punk and pop/rock released of course, but that's not really what we're about in this series of mixes here. 1978 was not that bad a year, I could list many classic albums out by the likes of Frank Zappa, Elvis Costello, Bob Marley, Little Feat, The Band, Talking Heads, Rick James, Kraftwerk, Herbie Hancock, Chic, Devo, The Clash or even Sun Ra, for example, but the main event is clearly happening on the P-Funk side of things, with great LPs from Funkadelic, Parliament, Brides Of Funkenstein, Parlet , Bernie Worrell or Bootsy Collins, all released in 1978. You'll feel it in this selection of cool covers from the year, which includes P-Funk spin off act Parlet covering Parliament-Funkadelic vocalist Fuzzy Haskins' "Cookie Jar" (later recorded by Prince), R&B/soul group The Dells covering Parliament's "All Your Goodies Are Gone", and funk band Platinum Hook covering Funkadelic's "Standing On The Verge Of Getting It On". Definitively, 1978 was the year of the P!!

Tracklisting :
01. Soul Children - Signed, Sealed, Delivered
(from 'Can't Give Up A Good Thing' 7 inch, 1978 / Stax)

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1977 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.18
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2016-04-18

1977 was the year of the Punk explosion, but it was also the year the famous Studio 54 opened in New York. Elvis Presley died during the summer, Marc Bolan followed in september, and "Saturday Night Fever" was released at the end of the year. On the albums front, besides the obvious P-Funk gems (Parliament, Bootsy Collins, Eddie Hazel), there were Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, The Clash, Kraftwerk, The Talking Heads and Bob Marley. The times were A-changing once again… As for album, cool covers were getting scarce and Kiss was the most popular band in the USA. But that didn't stop us from gathering a full hour of handpicked funky and soulful versions of classics, all released during 1977!!
