Phish Are Molesting Laura - Halloween Special !

Phish are Molesting Laura - Halloween Special compiled by Mr. Moo
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2011-10-31

Our first published reviews and analysis of the Phish phenomena on the Internet happened in 1996 - more than 15 years ago today… Many things happened in the musical world since then, but this American rock/jazz band you might never have heard yet is still the best the live scene has to offer, worldwide! There's been some ups and downs in their history, but they're currently touring, rocking, grooving and bending minds as fresh and hard as ever. Forget what you think you know about what music can do to you, just go see this band on stage if you have the chance. Phish are regularly celebrating Halloween with what they call a musical costume, with the band performing an entire album by another artist and including it as the second of three sets. That's how they came to perform The Beatles' White Album, The Who's Quadrophenia, the Talking Heads' Remain in Light, The Velvet Underground's Loaded, Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon or The Rolling Stones' Exile on Main Street!! For this year's halloween celebration, we've decided that Phish would be the one molesting our dear Laura, with an astounding selection of live covers chosen by psychedelic music expert Mr. Moo.

DJ Format & The Simonsound - Paris DJs Mix

DJ Format & The Simonsound - Paris DJs Mix
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2011-10-15

"The Simonsound is Simon James and Matt Ford (DJ Format). Sometimes we make music together and sometimes alone and maybe that's a bit confusing but we don't mind as long as people enjoy the music. When we started making music together as The Simonsound we didn't want people to associate it with the music of DJ Format because it is so completely different but eventually we decided to let people know and just judge for themselves. The mix is a selection of Psychedelic/Electric records from around the world collected by Matt and put together by Matt & Simon. DJ Format's new album A Statement Of Intent is due for release in Feb 2012. Reverse Engineering by The Simonsound is available on Vinyl,CD & MP3." (DJ Format)

The Greg Foat Group - Sci-Fi Bugalu Mix

The Greg Foat Group - Sci-Fi Bugalu Mix
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2011-09-31

In the interview we've just published, British pianist Greg Foat explains he's also DJing in great cities around the world, so we've thought he would be very natural contributor DJ to our great mix series. And indeed he's dug in his fine vinyl collection to cook an exclusive mix he introduces like this:
"The Sci-Fi Bugalu Mix is basically a fun party mix with a touch of sci-fi weirdness. There's a lot of classic soul jazz tracks, a couple of deep funk and crossover tracks, a bit of westcoast and some British library! It's pretty much all uptempo dancers, it's a kind of nostalgic mix to remind me of when I used to DJ out this on vinyl and dance like mad in the late 90's! I also have a lot of fond memories hunting down these records in junk shops, thrift stores, charity shops and record stores".
