Paris DJs Soundsystem Slow Riders Vol 2

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. It all started thanks to Big Crown Records in New York, who reissued fantastic laidback soul from Sunny & The Sunliners...

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...

Paris DJs Soul System - Live Dub Session 2018

Paris DJs Soul System - Wearplay LP#29 - Live Dub Session 2018 (T-shirt/Mix bundle, Paris DJs/Le T-shirt Français, 2018)


Back from their gig at the Glastonbury Festival in 2013, the Paris DJs collective decided to up the game with a brand new stage concept called the Paris DJs Soul System, an innovative show blending deejaying and old school dub session, all with original tunes and remixes, taken from nearly two decades of music production. 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...

Paris DJs Soundsystem - The Highlife Express - Deep and Funky Africa 80s

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Wearplay LP#16 - The Highlife Express - Deep & Funky Africa 80's (T-shirt/Mix bundle, Paris DJs/Le T-shirt Français, 2017)

While we won't be able to release a new episode every day of the week this time, we've tried our best to add a new wow factor to our concept. Paris DJs co-founder Loik...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1985 1986 1987 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol 26

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1985, 1986 & 1987 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.26


We've reached 1985 and most of music is in a really bad shape. Music marketing is starting to morph thanks to the Grateful Dead who re-invented the direct-to-fan business the previous year, but music production is still hitting an unsurpassed low, almost everywhere. It might come as a surprise to everyone following this series of mixes of cover songs all recorded or released the same year, but...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1984 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol 25

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1984 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.25


1984 is the tipping point, the limit before things start to go really sideways for a few years in music… Out of the 12 tracks we picked here, two were already released in 1982 on small labels or pressings, and one was recorded live in Japan in 1983, so we're cheating a little bit. But the point is to make this mix of covers from 1984 enjoyable to the ears, right? It doesn't really matter, we...
