Paris DJs Soundsystem Some Of The Best Things In Life Are Free Vol 7

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Some Of The Best Things In Life Are Free Vol.7


While we're trying to move heaven & earth for our 15 CDs crowdfunding campaign, we don't forget that sometimes some of the best things are life are totally free and need no 'help me fund my project' shout-outs all over. Hence this new volume of our ongoing series of mixes focusing on free download tracks we've been able to find on the web recently… starting with Paris-based MC RacecaR who's...

Mr Moo - Abstractions In Space

Mr. Moo - Abstractions In Space


What really happened after the 90's? Past the electronic revolution, once all the freaks fled the overpriced cities, between the last gasp of experience and the last band standing in the minefield of our time, a bit before we found ourselves digitally brainwashed, there was a stream gathering, a loose joint venture of alternate currents, not really a scene or to twist Jim's words: "Weirds...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1968 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.9


Rather than trying to find some covers released in 1968 which would reflect the events from that year, such as the assassination of Martin Luther King, the Soviet Union invasion of Czechoslovakia, anti-Vietnam war protests throughout the western world, The Beatles' 'White Album' or the Mexico Olympics 'Black Power' salute, we've stayed on the low on the political energy here, and instead focused...

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Some Of The Best Things In Life Are Free Vol.6


The "Free Music" biz is vast and mostly uncharted. While every kind of shitty media only spotlights music that is sold, distributed, promoted, subsidized, etc., meaning: music from people who might buy advertising, at Paris DJs we often take the opposite route.
