Paris DJs Soundsystem - 21st Century Blaxploitation Vol.4

Paris DJs Soundsystem 21st Century Blaxploitation vol 4

So many cool 21st Century Blaxploitation-sounding tracks have been released recently that Paris DJs couldn't pass on concocting a new imaginary soundtrack of their famous Pam Grier-illustrated series. This new selection gathers Blaxploitation Funk & Soul, car chase themes, old school Hip Hop, Afrofunk, Jamesbrownisms, some jazz, breakbeats and more thrilling grooves… Respect to the friendly record-sending people out there: Kept Records in the US and their blasting 45s, Record Kicks in Italy and the banging funk LP from Third Coast Kings, Unique in Germany who introduced us to the Osaka Monaurail funk revue years ago, Kindred Spirits in the Netherlands and the joyfully spirited afrobeat of Jungle By Night, and finally Mackrosoft in Seattle and the amazing retro-hip-hop-funk of The Cheebacabra!

Where is the 21st Century Blaxpoitation Vol.3? I don't find it! Great Job. The Best French Blog. Marre de la suprematie de l'anglais, vive la francophonie et les langues de tous les pays.

Thanks for the answer. A quand la réédition de "Are molesting Laura Vol.2". Bientôt le 400ème mix... Big Up. A real follower addict of your sound.

Thanks! 400th mix is coming fast... need start working on finding a cool idea! It should happen in september at the same time of our 7th anniversary. We'll be releasing our first Paris DJs Soundsystem CD/12" around that time too...

... You're welcome. I'm ready to buy it... You should know you represent the same revolution that Radio Nova brings to the sound at the end of 80's & 90's in France. Respect for your concept and to share your musical eclectism. Best regards.

From a groovy/tropical point of view, Interesting cover songs from 1981 weren't that easy to find. The sound of Sly & Robbie, present twice in this mix (with productions for The Tamlins or Bits & Pieces), was an obvious choice, but we've also dug up for you some classic soul, early...
