Jan Kohlmeyer - Yuletide DJ Mix IV - Santa's Funk & Soul Christmas Party Vol.3

Jan Kohlmeyer - Yuletide DJ Mix IV for Paris DJs
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2015-12-15

For more than a decade, Tramp Records has been regularly feeding music obsessives and record collectors in the soul/funk/jazz scene with tasteful new releases and high-quality reissues. One thing's for sure, those cats know how to dig and are one of the best music filters out there! Their approach is always very respectful of the buyers and of the artists, with lots of info & artworks. And when they hunt for the obscure and the rarity, they always look out for virtue in music, not hype. A few years back, the German label started an amazing trilogy of Xmas compilations which came to and end this year with the release of the superb 'Santa's Funk & Soul Christmas Party Vol.3' —which you can gab on vinyl or CD on tramprecords.bandcamp.com. For each volume in this series, we invited compiler Jan Kohlmeter (a.k.a. Disco Fantastique) to cook a special mix with many extracts from his new record and many other bits of soulful and hip-shaking Xmas tunes. So here's his new merry holidays contribution delivered directly to your mp3 player, and if you're in need of more Xmas music, check the Paris DJs archives, with no less than 13 other cool selections published in the last 10 years. A bit as if Xmas was more than once a year somehow…

Rodinia - Asteroid Mix (German Space-Rock Classics)

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.
