Paris DJs Soudsystem - Wearplay EP#13 - Paris DJs Soundsystem Eiffelmat (T-shirt/Digital Single bundle, Paris DJs/Le T-shirt Français, 2017)



Paris DJs Wearplay EP 013

For this 13th episode 13 of Paris DJs & Le T-shirt Français "Wearplay" series (Season 1), we've recycled French illustrator Ben Hito's first-ever original Paris DJs logo. He had designed it a few years ago in yellow, red & green, for our first (and successful) crowdfunding campaign. It now comes in glorious white, screen-printed on a high-quality Made In France T-shirt, the latter available in black, navy blue or burgundy colors. We called this EP "Eiffelmat", obviously because it's one of those Ben Hito illustration with the Eiffel tower, and would look very nice on a turntable slipmat…

As you might already know by now if you're following this series, each T-shirts comes with a download code to access some of Paris DJs' finest selections. This EP opens with legendary Jamaican deejay U Brown and his unmistakeable deejay flow with a stylistic debt to the deejay godfather U-Roy. On "Rub A Dub Inna Di Dancehall", the veteran deejay lays a a deep and sensual rub-a-dub toast on a heavy, bubbling, slow and fat, masterful riddim. Then comes the Chicago-born but now Paris-based MC RacecaR. "Think It All" is a smoothing smoocher tune, quite unclassifiable with its unique blend of styles. On a 33% funk, 33% jazz and 33% dub instrumental, RacecaR recalls a Jurassic 5 vibe which should appeal to many fans of post-golden age hip hop grooves! After that we've got Greek DJ/producer Blend Mishkin for some "Braaaap Braaaap" wicked dancehall rework of The Lone Ranger's original Raggamuffin killer tune "Music Weh Dem Wan". Play it loud while jumpin' around to the rhymes & rhythms. And finally to wrap up this new EP, Jamaican singer Leroy Gibbon, voicing one of Grant Phabao's biggest riddims, the "Usain Bolt The Puma" relentless one, tight and bumpy, like 70s Jamaica sounding heavy. Another sure-fire winner combination of great talents!

EN FRANÇAIS S'IL VOUS PLAIT

Pour ce 13ème épisode de la série "Wearplay" (saison 1) de Paris DJs et Le T-shirt Français, nous avons recyclé le tout premier logo Paris DJs de l'affichiste Ben Hito. Il l'avait dessiné à l'origine en vert/jaune/rouge, pour notre toute première campagne de financement participatif (réussie!). Le voici désormais dans une magnifique version blanche, sérigraphié sur un T-shirt haute qualité, fabriqué en france et disponible en couleurs noir, bleu marine ou bordeaux. Nous avons appelé cet EP "Eiffelmat", de toute évidence en raison de l'inscription Paris DJs sur la tour Eiffel dessiné par Ben Hito, qui ferait très bonne figure sur une feutrine ("slipmat" en anglais) de platine vinyle…

Comme vous devez probablement déjà le savoir si vous suivez notre série, chaque T-shirt contient un code de téléchargement pour accéder à la fine fleur des sélections Paris DJs. Ce nouvel EP démarre lui sur les chapeaux de roues avec le légendaire deejay jamaïquain U Brown et son flow reconnaissable entre tous, inspiré par le parrain du genre U-Roy. Sur "Rub A Dub Inna Di Dancehall", le deejay veteran pose un toast rub-a-dub profond et sensuel à la fois, sur un riddim bouillonnant et bien "phat". Vient ensuite le MC américain désormais basé à Paris RacecaR. "Think It All" est une chanson en même temps funky et relaxante, plutôt inclassable de par son mélange de styles. Sur un instrumental 1/3 funk, 1/3 jazz et 1/3 dub, RacecaR évoque une vibe à la Jurassic 5 qui devrait plaire à tous les amateurs de grooves hip hop de l'époque dorée. Après cela le dj/producteur grec Blend Mishkin déboule avec un fabuleux remix dancehall du superbe original raggamuffin de The Lone Ranger "Music Weh Dem Wan". A jouer très fort tout en faisant des bonds au rythme des rimes! Enfin, le EP se conclut avec le chanteur jamaïquain Leroy Gibbon, qui pose sur l'un des instrumentaux les plus efficaces du producteur parisien Grant Phabao, l'implacable "Usain Bolt The Puma", et on se croirait en Jamaïque dans les 70 autour d'un énorme sound system. Une nouvelle combinaison infaillible de talents!

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!
