Paris DJs Soudsystem - Wearplay EP#04 - Tropical Eiffel Tower (T-shirt/Digital Single bundle, Paris DJs/Le T-shirt Français, 2017)



Paris DJs Wearplay EP 004

Paris DJs' first week of daily "Wearplay EPs" combining clothing, graphics and music production ends with a bang. Illustrator Ben Hito has designed an amazingly beautiful Eiffel Tower set in tropical surroundings, printed on a high-quality Made in France T-shirt, and for the assembly of four songs from the Paris DJs catalog (offered as a complementary download with the Tee), we've managed to insert an exclusive brand new tune from French producer Grant Phabao and Jamaican singstress Lady Ann !

The "Wearplay #04" digital EP opens with Grant Phabao, Chicago-born MC RacecaR and keyboard maestro Soul Sugar's smashing hip hop/afrofunk monster "Rock Your Boat". Following this heavy tune, we're proud to present Lady Ann's first solo recording with French producer Grant Phabao, a truly great reggae single in the vein of Althea & Donna's "Uptown Ranking". Part of this summer's soundtrack for sure and a soon-to-be reggae classic. Extracted from The Silvertones third album released on the Paris DJs label in 2013, the marvelous take on the "Old Man River" standard is a re-recording of the band's classic hit, and we close this tropical EP entirely produced by Frenchman extraordinaire Grant Phabao with a spiritual gospel/jazz piece, "Zion Holy Place" on which the church-infused harmonies of Jamaican vocal trio The Jays fit like a glove…

La première semaine des "Wearplay EPs" journaliers du label Paris DJs, combinant création de vêtements, d'art graphique et de production musicale, s'achève en beauté. L'affichiste Ben Hito a dessiné une superbe Tour Eiffel, dans un environnement tropical, imprimé sur notre t-shirt haut de gamme fabriqué en France. Pour le EP digital de quatre morceaux extraits de notre catalogue (offert en téléchargement complémentaire au T-shirt, par le biais de bandcamp ou d'un code imprimé au dos), nous avons cette fois réussi a y glisser un titre exclusif, signé du producteur français Grant Phabao et de la chanteuse Jamaïquaine Lady Ann !

Le EP digital "Wearplay #04" démarre sur les chapeaux de roue avec "Rock Your Boat", un composite hip hop/funk/afrobeat rassemblant Grant Phabao, le rappeur de Chicago RacecaR et le claviériste Parisien Soul Sugar. S'ensuit ce fameux morceau inédit, "Upfront", le premier enregistrement solo de Lady Ann avec le producteur français Grant Phabao. Un remarquable single reggae roots, dans la veine du fameux "Uptown Ranking" d'Althea & Donna, un futur classique à retenir absolument pour votre bande-son de l'été 2017. Extrait du 3ème album des Silvertones sorti sur le label Paris DJs en 2013, la merveilleuse version du standard "Old Man River" est un nouvel enregistrement d'un des tubes du groupe Jamaïquain. Enfin, et pour clore cet EP tropical entièrement produit par notre Grant Phabao national (une des plus grandes fiertés auditives de notre beau pays), "Zion Holy Place", une épopée gospel/spiritual jazz à laquelle les harmonies d'église du trio vocal Jamaïquain The Jays vont comme un gant.

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!
