Kologbo - Wearplay EP#23 - Music No Get Enemy (T-shirt/Digital single bundle, Paris DJs/Le T-shirt Français, 2018)



Paris DJs Wearplay EP 023 Kologbo Music No Get Enemy

Fela Kuti had this song called 'Water No Get Enemy', on his 1975 album 'Expensive Shit' with the Afrika 70 band. Its title meant something like "Nobody hates something as useful as water". 43 years later, Fela's guitarist Kologbo, who played on nearly all of Fela's 1970s records (including this 1975 one), is paying a kind of tribute to that song and his former bandleader, with 'Music No Get Enemy', featuring musicians from European afrobeat bands Monkuti (France) and World Squad (Belgium). Produced at Paris DJs by Grant Phabao, this tune navigates in a class-A laidback afrobeat comfort zone, the kind of vibe that's perfect for this month's Kologbo day!*
* every 6th of the month is Kologbo day at Paris DJs

EN FRANÇAIS S'IL VOUS PLAIT

En 1975, Fela Kuti publiait 'Water No Get Enemy', sur son album 'Expensive Shiti avec le groupe Afrika 70. Son titre signifiait "personne ne déteste quelque chose d'aussi utile que l'eau". 43 plus tard, Kologbo, le guitariste ténor de Fela, qui a joué sur presque tous les disques de Fela des années 70 (y compris "Expensive Shit"), rend en quelque sorte hommage à cette chanson et à son ancien chef d'orchestre avec 'Music No Get Enemy', où figurent des musiciens des groupes d'Afrobeat européens Monkuti (France) et World Squad (Belgique). Produit à Paris DJsGrant Phabao, ce morceau navigue dans une zone de confort "afrobeat laidback" de première classe, le genre de sensation idéal pour le Kologbo day* du mois de janvier!
* tous les 6 du mois c'est le Kologbo day chez Paris DJs

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!
