Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Beyond Radio & Pop-Flavoured Covers

Paris DJs Soundsystem Beyond Radio and Pop-Flavoured Covers

This is the first is a series of 10 mixes of thematic covers hosted on 10 different blogs/websites, announcing or celebrating the Paris DJs mix #400 to be aired at right after christmas… First of our supportive friends to air on of those guest mixes from us is Kweeper, a cool online library collecting service available in both French and English. This mix, as the title implies, is all about covers of pop, rock and other radio-friendly hits & oddities. The selections have been prepared by Djouls, mixed and mastered by Grant Phabao, and each mix comes with a unique design from illustrator Ben Hito. It's the same kind of vibe as our 'Molesting Laura' series, but without the 'molesting Laura' in the title... Featuring AM, Cake, Chico Mann, Franck Pourcel, Go Home Productions, Hollie Cook, Kinny, Shawn Lee, 6iX toys, The Bamboos, Tom Jones, White Williams
