Paris DJs Soundsystem - 21st Century Blaxploitation Vol.4
(MP3 Podcast on ParisDJs.com) T.I.M.E.C., 2012-06-27

So many cool 21st Century Blaxploitation-sounding tracks have been released recently that Paris DJs couldn't pass on concocting a new imaginary soundtrack of their famous Pam Grier-illustrated series. This new selection gathers Blaxploitation Funk & Soul, car chase themes, old school Hip Hop, Afrofunk, Jamesbrownisms, some jazz, breakbeats and more thrilling grooves… Respect to the friendly record-sending people out there: Kept Records in the US and their blasting 45s, Record Kicks in Italy and the banging funk LP from Third Coast Kings, Unique in Germany who introduced us to the Osaka Monaurail funk revue years ago, Kindred Spirits in the Netherlands and the joyfully spirited afrobeat of Jungle By Night, and finally Mackrosoft in Seattle and the amazing retro-hip-hop-funk of The Cheebacabra!

Even though we're gathering a quite explosive selection of Afrofunk, Latin, Jazz, R'n'B, indonesian Bass, Hip Hop, Rock, Soul, Electro and Brazil vibes in the same hour, our recipe is not that complex. This month's Bag of Goodies' selection started with a playlist of 1000+ tracks and a stack of vinyls and CDs. After some careful digging, Djouls extracted 50 tracks, gave them to Loik to sort out two handfuls of the best goodies in there, added a few last-minute spices, and went to Grant Phabao's studio for some masterful cooking! The menu includes some nice grooves from friendly labels Electric Cowbell, Daptone, Counter, Urbanworld, Innovative Leisure, Luv'N'Haight/Ubiquity, BBE, Tru Thoughts, Mocambo and EBS Diggin, in the form of a panoramic view of Paris DJs' access to quality music...

Chicha Libre - Are Molesting Laura
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2012-06-02

Brooklyn's psychedelic tropical and surf-cumbia act Chicha Libre are specialized in deviant covers since their very first album Sonido Amazonico. They've just released a fantastic new album called Canibalismo with a similar spicy recipe. In that respect they belong to the great chicha (Peru's own version of the cumbia) fusion's tradition with elements of literally every kind of existing music: funk, pop, rock, French variétés, krautrock, classical music, etc. In 2007 and 2010 Chicha Libre and Barbes Records owner Olivier Conan released two must-have compilations (The Roots of Chicha & The Roots Of Chicha 2), revealing this hidden latin genre to the astonished eyes of the world. That's why Olivier was a perfect match for a cumbia and latin Molesting Laura guest mix after the great interview we've just done with him. The result is a wild and unexpected clash of his personal tastes and obsessions for hybridations. Don't miss Chicha Libre playing their very first french gig at Paris' New Morning on June 30th.

Tracklisting :
01. Chicha Libre - Gnossienne No.1
(Satie cover, from 'Sonido Amazonico' album, 2009 / Barbes/Crammed)
02. Chico Trujillo - Ahora Quien
(Marc Anthony cover, from 'Chico De Oro' album, 2010 / Barbes)
