Paris DJs Soundsystem - African Mashed Potato Popcorn Vol 10 - When Afrobeat Meets Jazz

Paris DJs Soundsystem - African Mashed Potato Popcorn Vol.10 - When Afrobeat Meets Jazz

While preparing the selection, we found out this new mix fitted perfectly our decade-old 'African Mashed Potato Popcorn' series!...

The year is 1974. Early disco is upon the music scene. Pre-selections of cool records with interesting cover songs are starting to become tighter. But no worry! The diggin craze (also called "Dig-Fu" in our inner circle) is infinite. The more music you know, the more you have to discover. Jazz, soul, reggae, funk, library music, New Orleans backbeat, fusion, Nigerian Afro-rock… there's...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1972 - Standards, Versions & Revamps Vol.13

But don't worry, we've kept it as funky and soulful as ever - Paris DJs' style. Excepted that we added...
