Kologbo - Wearplay EP#24 - Get Rich Quick (T-shirt/Digital single bundle, Paris DJs/Le T-shirt Français, 2018)



Paris DJs Wearplay EP 024 Kologbo Get Rich Quick

February 6th, it's Kologbo day at Paris DJs - just like every other 6th of the month we're releasing a brand new song from Fela Kuti Afrika 70's tenor guitar player! This one is called 'Get Rich Quick' and features the horn section and percussion player from French band Les Frères Smith, along with backing vocals from Chilean band Newen Afrobeat's quatuor of singers. No Tony Allen here, Kologbo plays the drums himself, along with the guitar solos, tenor guitar, rhythm guitar, bass and congas!!

Recorded and produced by Grant Phabao at the Paris DJs studio, 'Get Rich Quick' is not an ode to Las Vegas. "Get Rick Quick is a problem of the world, that's why I sing it. Everybody wants to get rich quick and forget his brother, forget about famine, forget about all necessary things. I can see that all over the world", says Kologbo, adding that "it's Afrobeat mixed with my kind of highlife-funk-jazz-blues mix-mash fusion of elements, you can hear it all in my music."

Enregistré et produit par Grant Phabao au studio Paris DJs, 'Get Rich Quick' n'est pas une ode à Las Vegas. "Get Rick Quick est un problème dans le monde entier, c'est pour cela que je la chante. Tout le monde veut devenir riche rapidement et oublier son frère, oublier la famine, oublier tout ce qui est nécessaire. Je le vois partout dans le monde", dit Kologbo, ajoutant que le morceau est "de l'afrobeat mélangé avec mon type de mélange d'éléments highlife-funk-jazz-blues, vous pouvez tous les entendre dans ma musique".

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!

I've been exploring this subject for about 3 weeks at this point and this is actually the first article that truly seems sensible. How come it's so difficult to locate effective information when it comes to protection today? Absolutely appreciate the effort you invested putting your ideas into words so rookies such as myself can certainly take action. Maybe there is a part 2 on your blog? Thank you again!

I've been looking into this issue for about two weeks now and this is actually the first posting which actually makes sense. Why is it really hard to find reasonable specifics dealing with security and safety these days? Surely recognize the time you spent placing your thoughts into words so amateurs similar to me may take action. Could there be a part two with your article? Thank you again!
