Djouls - Sweet Little Paris DJs Boy



Nostalgia 77 - Jazz d'Outre-Manche

Christmas without a funky Paris DJs mix isn't the same. For this selection we've picked a few friends, of course: the eternal Shawn Lee, the unstoppable Laura Vane and the amazingly unique Super Hi-Fi, who all put out a groovy xmas album or single those last years. Then there's the annual Daptone Records holiday single, from Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings this year. We added two gems from The Blind Boys Of Alabama, one featuring the great Mavis Staples on guest vocals and the much-adored keybards king John Medeski on Hammond B3 organ, and another lifted from their recent xmas album with Taj Mahal. James Brown is here too. The man left us on a christmas day a few years back so we can't pass on having Papa James featured with a soulful xmas song. A surprising P-Funk soul/blues thang appears too, from Southern Soul artists Tyree Neal, Adrian Bagher and Pokey, under the Louisiana Soul Brothas guise, and we close the mix on a reggae tip… Happy holidays everyone!!
