Kologbo - Wearplay EP#22 - Look Around (T-shirt/Digital single bundle, Paris DJs/Le T-shirt Français, 2017)



Paris DJs Wearplay EP 022 Kologbo Look Around

Every 6th of the month is Kologbo day at Paris DJs, even when Kologbo is touring in Chile! After unveiling this new tune last month on Soundcloud, here's its official digital/t-shirt Wearplay release. Hot on the heels of a successful crowdfunding campaign for the pressing of his 2nd LP, 'Africa Is The Future', Fela Kuti's tenor guitar player in Afrika 70 is back with 'Look Around', recorded and produced at Paris DJs by Grant Phabao this summer. Featuring the mighty Tony Allen on drums with some musicians and singers from Newen Afrobeat (Chile), Les Frères Smith (France) and World Squad (Belgium), this afrobeat song about the poor man suffering in the ghetto ain't no joke.

EN FRANÇAIS S'IL VOUS PLAIT

Le 6 de chaque mois chez Paris DJs c'est le Kologbo Day, même quand Kologbo est à l'autre bout du monde… en train de tourner au Chili! Nous avions dévoilé ce nouveau titre sur Soundcloud le mois dernier, voici enfin la sortie officielle en version Wearplay digital/T-shirt. Dans la foulée d'une campagne de financement participatif réussie, pour le pressage de son 2ème album 'Africa Is The Future', le guitariste ténor de Fela Kuti (avec son groupe Afrika 70) est de retour avec 'Look Around', enregistré et produit chez Paris DJs par Grant Phabao cet été. Avec en invités l'illustre Tony Allen à la batterie, ainsi que des musiciens de Newen Afrobeat (Chili), Les Frères Smith (France) et World Squad (Belgique), ce morceau afrobeat parlant du pauvre homme souffrant dans le ghetto ne plaisante pas.

Paris DJs Wearplay EP 022 Kologbo Look Around

About the Wearplay :
The music industry is evolving and Paris DJs with it.

Five years ago we started putting out digital releases, which helped us stay afloat for a bit, but soon digital sales declined, replaced by streaming, a true non-business for independent record companies such as ours.

The vinyl resurgence led us to launch crowdfunding campaigns to press records. We managed to raise money five times in a row, alas record stores are a thing of the past, and direct-to-fan sales haven't taken off. Distributors have been knocking at the door intensely, but with no financial solutions.

In our quest for innovative ways to put out quality music, we wanted to prove ourselves capable of making great products that people would want to use, again and again.
Original, creative, but satisfying products. That's how we came up with the idea of the "Paris DJs Wearplay", a clothing line of "music that you wear", with :

- dashing visuals from French illustrator Ben Hito (www.benhito.com)
- stylish textile digital or screen printing by Anarres in Paris (www.anarres.fr)
- high-end Made in France T-shirts and sweatshirts by Le T-shirt Français (www.letshirtfrancais.fr)
- vintage 1970's sound with Grant Phabao's unsurpassed audio production and mastering skills (www.grantphabao.com)
- and of course, top-of-the-class artistic direction from Djouls and Loik Dury at Paris DJs (www.parisdjs.com)

Just like airplay for radio in the 20th century, the more people will wear our clothes, the more wearplay they'll get.

We want you to proudly arbor Paris DJs' groovy music, while supporting your favorite brand at the same time!

EN FRANÇAIS S'IL VOUS PLAIT

L'industrie de la musique évolue et Paris DJs aussi.

Il y a cinq ans nous avons commencé à publier des singles, albums et compilations au format digital, ce qui nous a aidé a garder la tête hors de l'eau pendant un petit moment. Mais les ventes de téléchargements ont rapidement décliné, replacées par le streaming, un véritable non-business for des maisons de disques indépendantes telles que la nôtre.

Le retour du vinyle nous a conduit à lancer des campagnes de financement participatif pour presser nos disques. Nous avons réussi à lever de l'argent 5 fois de suite, maheureusement les magasins de disques sont une relique du passé, et les ventes direct-to-fan n'ont jamais décollé. Les distributeurs sont venus taper à notre porte, mais dénués de solutions financières.

En permanence à la recherche de solutions innovantes pour sortir de la musique de qualité, nous voulions faire preuve de notre capacité à fabriquer des produits exceptionnels que les gens voudraient utiliser, encore et encore. Des produits originaux, créatifs et satisfaisants. C'est ainsi que nous est venue l'idée du "Paris DJs Wearplay", une ligne de vêtements de "music that you wear" (musique que vous portez), avec :

- des visuels fringuants de l'affichiste Français Ben Hito (www.benhito.com)
- une impression textile en numérique Haute Définition ou en sérigraphie par l'atelier Anarres à Paris (www.anarres.fr)
- des T-shirts et sweatshirts haut de gamme, fabriqués en France par Le T-shirt Français (www.letshirtfrancais.fr)
- un son "vintage 1970s" grâce aux talents de production et de mastering inégalés de Grant Phabao (www.grantphabao.com)
- et bien évidemment, une direction artistique de premier ordre par Djouls et Loik Dury, co-fondateurs de Paris DJs (www.parisdjs.com)

Comme pour l' "airplay" en radio au 20ème siècle, plus les gens porteront nos vêtements, plus ces derniers obtiendront de "Wearplay".

Nous souhaitons que vous arboriez fièrement la musique groovy de Paris DJs, tout en soutenant votre marque préférée!

Do you waste a lot of money on advertizement?\nDo you have bad ROI? No visibility? Can you optimize your campaigns?\nSolution: Proper data and customer tracking: link:http://dmcinsight.com/services/ \n With dirty data in your website database, the reported customer experience and site performance are usually higher or lower than the actual value. If this is the case with your website database, then your indicators must be misguiding. The level of customer experience or site performance can only be termed “misguiding” if quality control services on customers’ data are not deployed on the website. One of the most significant needs for quality control services on online websites is to filter out dirty data, which include inaccurate, duplicated, erroneous, outdated, and incomplete data in a database.
