Paris DJs Playlist November 2012

Paris DJs Playlist - November 2012


We've reached a point where we're starting to receive each month more links to free downloads (44%) than links to promotional digital downloads (43%). The physical records, vinyl or CD, are far behind, with only 13% of what arrives at the studios. As music pros, you'll understand we keep our focus on artists and labels who are producing and releasing products you can touch and feel. As DJs, we're...

Paris DJs Playlist - September 2012


September was like a standard month for us, 50 new releases landed in our hard drives, while nearly as many real life records reached our shores. Out of those we selected 5 new albums worth checking, Criolo's Nó Na Orelha, a superb eclectic set from the 35-year-old São Paolo rapper blending hip hop, brazilian grooves and even afrobeat; Fink's live album and book Wheels Turn Beneath My Feet, a...

Paris DJs Playlist - August 2012


Logically, August is the summer month when not much happens releases-wise. Well we still received a few handfuls of 45s, LPs and CDs, and a few dozens digital downloads. So respect is due this month to all the cool labels out there, starting with Nascente in the UK who does an amazing job on the reissue/compilation tip. They sent us the 4 companion double CDs to Lloyd Bradley's fantastic book...

Paris DJs Playlist - April 2012


This april selection is heavy on the afro, funk and soul, but since this is exactly what we're producing in our own studios right now, it fits perfectly our current mood - we can only hope you're on the same kind of wavelength… As always, we strongly advise labels to check our Community Management services to learn how and why it's useful to get indexed, played or reviewed on Paris DJs… here are...

Paris DJs Playlist - March 2012


Our march selection was not an easy one to make and we had to leave a few records on the side such as the new albums from Slugabed or 2nd Class Citizen (watermarked CDs, how come labels have money to spend on crazy stuff like that is a mystery), or from Belleruche on Tru Thoughts and Blockhead on Ninja Tune (labels we strongly advise to check our Community Management services)… Of course the...
