Paris DJs Soundsystem - Some Of The Best Things In Life Are Free Vol.7

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Some Of The Best Things In Life Are Free Vol.7
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2015-08-31

While we're trying to move heaven & earth for our 15 CDs crowdfunding campaign, we don't forget that sometimes some of the best things are life are totally free and need no 'help me fund my project' shout-outs all over. Hence this new volume of our ongoing series of mixes focusing on free download tracks we've been able to find on the web recently… starting with Paris-based MC RacecaR who's new album should drop early next year. The man is just the coolest - Dude-like category. We then head to Spain and reggae/ska band Pura Mandanga, remixed by new Chilean cumbia band Chico Trujillo, for a very very nice piece of international cumbia soul. After a short trip back to the early 70s thanks to a Numero Group funk/soul reissue from Chicago funk band Boscoe, we transport back to Europe, Manchester in the UK to be precise, and a deeply funky hip hop joint from The Mouse Outfit, featuring Bam from The Jungle Brothers! The trip then takes us to Denver, Colorado, via Paris, France, with a new tasty Grant Phabao reggae remix, of Afro/Funk band Atomga this time. Washington, D.C.'s The Funk Ark is next with P-Funk number with some Middle Easter flavor. Fantastic stuff to fly out to, and indeed we land in Australia afterwards, with superb salsa dura from Melbourne's Quarter Street! The voyage is far over. Next is French producer Ajax Tow, reworking a soul ballad written by Marvin Gaye and Anna Gordy Gaye, produced by Marvin and recorded and released by American Motown vocal group The Originals for the Soul label in 1969. And… we go back to Australia, with a beautiful vocal soul 45 from Zillanova, before taking the express route to Israel, for some global polyrhythmic dish from George & The Good Vibes. Teleportation soon becomes necessary, directly to Ottawa and the ever-amazing groove machine that is The Souljazz Orchestra, before landing in Ghent, with Belgium party brass band Brazzmatazz!!! We hope you enjoyed your travel and will be back aboard our earlines soon.
