DJ Center Paris DJs Mix Center Bumps
DJ Center - Center Bumps - Paris DJs Spécial (All Vinyl Mix)
(MP3 Podcast on Push The Fader, 2011-09-06

DJ Center comes from the now heavy Paris DJs Brooklyn connection. I had discovered him through his former band, Open Thought, way back in 2003... It was a 12 inch called Force of Life, which never left my bag since then. Always a pleasure to play and definitively a killer track. You will find some more very cool stuff in DJ Center's first album, a mostly hip hop global thing called Everything In Time, released on CD in 2010 and on glorious vinyl earlier this year (surely some more coolness will also appear in the upcoming Everything In Time Remixed album). We are definitely humbled and excited to offer DJ Center an opportunity to share his experience in spreading good music made with a lot of love. As the song goes, groove is in the heart.
