Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Gut-Wrenching & Soul-Shaking Covers

Paris DJs Soundsystem Gut-Wrenching and Soul-Shaking Covers

This is the 2nd 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… We're proud have one of our resident DJs DustyTape from Paris re-ignite his music blog for us (and you can also check his fly fishing site)!. This mix, as the title implies, is all about covers full of pure unadultared soul. 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 Bettye LaVette, Charles Bradley and Menahan Street Band, Kylie Auldist, Lee Fields, Lettuce, Mayer Hawthorne, Monophonics, Robin McKelle & The Flytones, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Slim Moore and the Mar-Kays, The Echocentrics
