Paris DJs Playlist - August 2012

Logically, August is the summer month when not much happens releases-wise. Well we still received a few handfuls of 45s, LPs and CDs, and a few dozens digital downloads. So respect is due this month to all the cool labels out there, starting with Nascente in the UK who does an amazing job on the reissue/compilation tip. They sent us the 4 companion double CDs to Lloyd Bradley's fantastic book about Jamaican music, Bass Culture: When Reggae Was King. Amazing ska, rocksteady, reggae, dub and dancehall from the early 1960s to the mid-1980s, of course, but also original artworks, detailed sleeve notes adapted from the book… A really impressive set! We also need to thank Electric Cowbell Records in Brooklyn, who sent us dancefloor-burning 7 inches, The Royal Potato Family also from Brooklyn, who hit us with Marco Benevento's new album for which we'll do a special focus mix very soon, Tramp Records in Germany with their essential compilations and reissues (and new Qualitons stuff is coming too!), and HopeStreet Recordings in Melbourne, who granted us with crucial Funk gatefold LP releases. Our long-time friends from Canada The Souljazz Orchestra also hit us with their brand new CD and its 100% killer - there are so many hit singles in this album that's it's ridiculously fantastic. And finally a big thanks goes to the balkanese/gypsy/afro brass band from Belgium Va Fan Fahre who put on 5 free shows in Paris' parcs this summer and hit us with a signed copy of their latest vinyl!!
