Around The World - Take 5

Around The World - Take 5 Around The World - Take 5
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2016-09-27

French collective Around The World supported our crowdfunding campaigns many times. We offered to lend themselves to the Paris DJs thematic mix game and they were kind enough to accept the challenge. ATW picked the number 5 for their theme, and cooked a musical selection in quintuple time (five beats per bar), travelling through Brasil, Cuba, the United States or the United Kingdom — as per the collective's name, around the world. Enjoy this trip in 5/4!

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1980 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.21

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1980 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.21
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2016-09-23

Here we are in the deep sea of the 1980s hunting for cool and groovy cover songs. The Betino's Record Store in Paris pointed us towards Gnonnas Pedro's version of James Brown 'I Got You' but we we had mixed and mastered the selection a few hours earlier so it didn't make the cut. Someone on facebook asked if we played Snatch's version of 'Another Brick In The Wall' but we didn't. Digging into this decade is a different kind of fun than the 60s or the 70s, and we think we managed to find some very exciting numbers. You'll let us know what you think. And suggestions for 1981 and 1982 are more than welcome!

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Jazz For Tiziano

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Jazz For Tiziano
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2016-09-05

Tiziano was one of the top backers of Paris DJs' third crowdfunding campaign during the summer of 2015. He choose the reward with the 15 CDs and the exclusive mix, saying: "I like the music you offer and the idea of getting an exclusive cooked just for me got me interested. I like jazz and experimental music, I grew up with rock. I ESPECIALLY like trumper (Jon Hassel, Paolo Fresu, Mark Isham, Miles Davis of course, etc.). So if you could blend your selections with some trumpet, some jazz…". Damn! This one was not easy. It took us months to figure out something fitting those directions, while still being essentially a Paris DJs thing. Thankfully, Tiziano was patient, and loved the mix. He also gladly accepted that we share an mp3 of it with the rest of the world, so here you go. Enjoy!
