Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Lord Echo

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Lord Echo


New Zealander Mike August, aka Mike Fabulous, aka Lord Echo (and a few more different pseudonyms), is one of those unique multi-instrumentalists/producers you can't pigeonhole in a specific style, blending reggae, funk, Caribbean disco, house, soul & afrofunk — but who's first and foremost a dub artist, just like our own Grant Phabao on the other side of the world… Between 2010 and 2017, he's...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Andrew Ashong

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Andrew Ashong


A South Londoner of Ghanian descent, Andrew Ashong is a singer, guitarist, DJ & producer who's only released two EPs so far. On a house, soul & jazz tip, those gained him comparisons with Marvin Gaye, Roy Ayers, Bill Withers or Lewis Taylor — which should intrigue already enough for you to be eager to give this mix a listen. He's been heard collaborating with various musicians such as...

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Slow Riders Vol.2


Following up on our previous volume, here's a new selection from this new musical movement happening worldwide, this revival of the "Lowrider Soul" scene from the 60's with many new, young bands putting out fantastic tunes in that sweet, soulful, Californian vibe.

Paris DJs Soundsystem Slow Riders

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Slow Riders Vol.1


It's been a while since we've posted a mix on our podcast series. Nowdays everyone's posting his own mix somewhere. But most of the time those are just VERY far from Paris DJs' quality standards. Where's the original artwork? Detailed tracklisting & links? Intention note? Track-by-track review? Photos of the records played in the mix? Professional audio mastering before encoding into mp3? And...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Vito - Selecta 01 - Soulful Grooves

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Vito - Selecta 01 - Soulful Grooves


A long-time activist of the French music scene, Vito has never sold his soul to the music industry. Quite the opposite, he was a member of the Hérétik crew, and probably one of the amazing guys who made the legendary rave at the Piscine Molitor in Paris happen, during the spring of 2001 (among other unreal events). A friend of the Paris DJs collective before it even existed, Vito has just always...

From Jamaican soul, ska, rocksteady & reggae to American funk &...

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Dont Sell Your Soul 45s

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Wearplay LP#20 - Don't Sell Your Soul 45s (T-shirt/Mix bundle, Paris DJs/Le T-shirt Français, 2017)


In the back of my mind I had this idea for quite some time, of a selection of vinyl we have in stock at the Paris DJs Record Store. In between other projects I finally managed to make it a reality, thanks to Erik Rug and Loik Dury who helped me pick the best tunes from our 45s stocks, thanks to Grant Phabao who carefully mixed the tracks and mastered the whole thing, and thanks to Ben Hito, who...
