Rodinia - Asteroid Mix (German Space-Rock Classics)
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2015-11-30

How many articles and mixes have we published related to bands such as The Poets of Rhythm, The Whitefield Brothers or Karl Hector and The Malcouns? If you've been following Paris DJs for some time, the name J. Whitefield should at least ring a bell. He's one of the great musicians/producers of our time, based in Munich, Germany. His latest project is called Rodinia, with saxophonist and keyboardist Johannes Schleiermacher (Woima Collective, International Ducks, Onom Agemo and The Disco Jumpers) they've recorded a first album titled 'Drumside Dreamside', released this fall on Now-Again Records. The album is divided in two parts — one for each side of the vinyl of course — a psychedelic krautrock half followed by a trippy ambient one. A perfect record to lay down in an horizontal dreamy state.

To celebrate this release, he cooked a mix of German space-rock classics, which some of you may already have heard on Now-Again's soundcloud page (here-). Here's the Grant Phabao-mastered version of this mix for you to download, superbly illustrated by French designer Ben Hito.

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1972 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.13
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2015-11-05

1972 was a great year for music. Most 1972 albums in artists discographies are really good ones. Artists such as Bobby Gentry had many country/soul crossover hits in the US in the previous years and influenced many others. Well that's what we felt as quite obvious while preparing this selection. But don't worry, we've kept it as funky and soulful as ever - Paris DJs' style. Excepted that we added this time a track-by-track commentary. We like our podcasts thorough.
