Paris DJs Soudsystem - Wearplay EP#10 - We Are The Fire Inside Your Mind (T-shirt/Digital Single bundle, Paris DJs/Le T-shirt Français, 2017)



Paris DJs Wearplay EP 010

The 10th episode in the "Wearplay" series combining arts & craft in clothing, graphics and music looks like King Kong discovering the fire instead of holding the beautiful woman in his hand. In order to musically illustrate this trippy visual from poster artist Ben Hito, we've opted first for Jamaican band The Silvertones and their rocksteady scorcher "Fire" - of course. We've also picked The Lone Ranger's homage song to Jamaica's greatest sprinter "Usain Bolt The Puma". Who doesn't love those wicked rhymes, those dynamic rub-a-dub gimmicks, this relentless, tight & bumpy reggae groove, and a heavy 70s Jamaica sound? Afrodyete, vocalist with The Breakestra or Jungle Fire in L.A., comes next with an exploration into the joyous world of Reggae Soul, singing her heart out on "I Got To Be Free". Dressed with shining Jamaican Funk guitar licks over the tight backbeat of an instantly classic reggae One Drop rhythm, she's radiant. The EP ends with "The Wheelie Champion Sound", an uptempo ska number with American MC RacecaR fast rapping over a punchy & roots ska instrumental, a tune bringing some heavy duty MADNESS on the dancefloor. Four Grant Phabao productions lightning the dancehall on fire… and the inside of your mind, of course.

EN FRANÇAIS S'IL VOUS PLAIT

Le 10ème épisode de la série "Wearplay" combinant le savoir-faire d'artisans français dans l'habillement, le graphisme et la musique, imagine King Kong en train de découvrir le feu, au lieu de la jolie femme au creux de sa main. Pour illustrer en musique ce captivant visuel de l'affichiste Ben Hito, nous avons tout d'abord sélectionné le trio Jamaïquain The Silvertones et leur brûlot rocksteady "Fire" - bien évidemment. Nous avons aussi choisi l'hommage rendu par le deejay The Lone Ranger au plus grand sprinter Jamaïquain de tous les temps, "Usain Bolt The Puma". Qui n'aime pas ces rimes géniales, ces gimmicks rub-a-dub dynamiques, ce groove reggae implacable, et ce son si particulier de la Jamaïque dans les années 70? Vient ensuite Afrodyete (chanteuse avec The Breakestra ou Jungle Fire à Los Angeles), avec une exploration dans l'univers bienveillant du reggae soul, chantant à pleine voix sur "I Got To Be Free". Drapée de phrasés de guitare funk Jamaiquaïne, du backbeat bien moulant d'un classique instantané de reggae "one drop", elle irradie. Le EP se conclut avec "The Wheelie Champion Sound", un instrumental ska à la fois roots et très efficace, sur lequel le emcee américain RacecaR rappe à haute vitesse. Un morceau qui risque d'amener de la folie gros calibre sur les pistes de danses. Quatre productions signées du producteur Parisien Grant Phabao pour embraser les salles de bal (en Jamaïque "dancehall")… ainsi que votre âme, bien sûr.

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!

Nice post. I learn some thing tougher on various blogs everyday. Most commonly it is stimulating to read content off their writers and rehearse a little something at their store. I’d would rather apply certain while using the content in my weblog whether you do not mind. Natually I’ll provide a link with your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
