Paris DJs mix #400 special event
Posted on Tuesday 11 December 2012, 13:42 - updated on 31/12/12 - Permalink
As some of you may know, Paris DJs will stop the podcast of mixes soon.
Mix #396 was about US keyboardist Marco Benevento.
Mix #397 is from Analog Africa (this week)
Mix #398 will be a Xmas one (24/12)
Mix #399 will be one last Bag Of Goodies for the road (29/12)
Mix #400 will be the last one, to be published on the 31st of december, and is very special, because it's a series of 11 mixes of thematic covers.
The idea is to publish one volume on Paris DJs, and the 10 other volumes on 10 other blogs/websites.
French jazz label Heavenly Sweetness has already agreed to host one of those (they have chose which one yet), and we're looking for 9 other sites willing to participate!
The selections have been prepared by Djouls, mixed and mastered by Grant Phabao, and each mix comes with a unique design from our illustrator Ben Hito. It's the same kind of vibe as our 'Molesting Laura' series, but without the 'molesting Laura' in the title...
UPDATE 12/12/12 : all the mixes have been reserved very quickly, thanks to all the people who replied with enthousiasm right away. Hopefully we'll have more ideas federating the underground community in the future...
