Quantic - Cumbia 78 RPM MIx

Quantic - Cumbia 78 RPM
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2012-08-28

To conclude Soundway Records' 10th anniversary celebration on Paris DJs all summer long, special guest Will Holland a.k.a. Quantic has prepared a unique and stylish mix of 78 RPM Colombian Cumbia! The famous producer/musician & DJ based out of his Cali, Colombia studio, Sonido del Valle, never stops working and touring. Hot on the heels of his impressive Original Sound of Cumbia compilation of colombian Cumbia & Porro 1948-1979 (Soundway), he put out earlier this year a marvelous collaboration album with Alice Russell Look Around The Corner (Tru Thoughts), and launched this summer the new all-star Colombian band Ondatrópica, with Mario Galeano of Frente Cumbiero. Their debut album was released this summer on Soundway Records.

Thanks to Joss Yerbury at Kartel Creative for helping us build this series of 4 mixes. Happy 10 years to Soundway Records, let's hope for more decades like this first ones! You can still enjoy Chris Menist' Leftfield Sunshine mix, Batida's Tirei O Chapéu mixtape, or Miles Cleret's Nigerian Rock selection.
Thanks again to all for participating.

Paris DJs Soundsystem - 21st Century Hammond Vol.1

Paris DJs Soundsystem - 21st Century Hammond Vol.1
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2012-08-21

Forget about Jimmy Smith, Reuben Wilson, Jimmy McGriff or Dr. Lonnie Smith for a while and meet the new masters of the Hammond B3 in this often violent, mean and sick mix. Those prestigious ancestors' disciples are called Raphael Wressnig, Mike Mangan, Bruce Cohen, Joe Doria or Guillaume Métenier. From USA to Austria and France, they carry on the great soul jazz tradition (mostly in trio formulas) with super heavy hammond sounds.

Chris Menist - Leftfield Sunshine
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2012-08-18

Chris Menist is already a legend in our books with his mind-blowing Thai compilations on Soundway Records and Finders Keepers. We had the chance to invite him in April 2011 to celebrate his Sound of Siam and Thai? Dai comps and he gladly accepted our invitation to celebrate Soundway Records 10th anniversary with a new exclusive mix. "It's a kind of left field-tropical selection, featuring quite a few artists Soundway have had on their records over the years, but with different tracks by them, not the ones that were compiled necessarily. Hope it's a fitting nod to the label's 10th year." says Chris. Enjoy this dish of rare world grooves!

Batida - Tirei o Chapéu Mixtape

Batida - Tirei o Chapéu Mixtape
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2012-08-07

A distinctly vibrant project with it’s feet firmly rooted in the past, Batida combine samples from old 1970s Angolan tracks with modern electronic dance music. Here's what he has to say about our Paris DJs invitation: "I did this mix as did early Batida radio shows: mixing old tunes with new beats. On the old side you have Angolan tunes i choose not based on the artist but on grooves i like, some of i have sampled on Batida tracks and, on the new beats, you have favourite Lisbon producers such as my buddy Beat Laden on an unreleased remix, Marfox with his minimal productions, on a track from his EP, Conductor of Buraka fame, but of Conjunto Ngonguenha fame for me, on an unreleased track he shared, another unreleased remix by Octa Push and some Luandan stars: Kilamu, Dj Znobia and my favourite MC, Bruno M. who promised to feature on a future Batida track as i djed for him on a show. Ending track is a remix by Mauricio Pacheco, a brasilian producer, who picked on a Teta Lando classic with a still inspiring lyric. An anthemn that always gives me chills. Hope you feel it."

01. Batida - Tirei o Chapeu
02. Musangola - Pe Descalco
03. Demonio King - ?
04. Mamukueno - Rei do Palhetinho
