Press Release :
Heavyweight Gambit, Nol Holds Barred' is the 11th compilation coming out on the Paris DJs label, and the second one digging into Funk & Soul music for the Paris DJs Soundsystem crew. A lot of tracks landed in the label's mailbox (thanks to everyone who participated!), choices had to be made, and until the last minute it was tough decisions.

Some of the bands/artists were already featured on Paris DJs finest selections, from compilations to mixes, reviews or remixes. Our readers and listeners should indeed start to get excited just hearing the names Connie Price and the Keystones, Breakdown Brass, Q.A.S.B., The Sure Fire Soul Ensemble, STEPAK-TAKRAW, Grant Phabao, RacecaR, The Echocentrics or J. Whitefield. All people with a heavy sense of classicism in their funky productions, with sound aesthetics close to ours, whom we're so proud to feature here. The ever-exanding family from the Paris DJs universe has answered our call once again, sending a whole bunch of new, often unreleased, killer tunes, and it feels GOOD.

The "discoveries" — at least for us — are also a delight, don' let us fool you. It was hard to pick a tune between the 3 San Fernando, CA funk unit Soul Scratch sent. Great things to come from them soon for sure! East Oakland-based Soul-Hop singer Baby Jaymes does sound quite close to Michael Jackson. His cover of 50 Cent released last year on a limited 45 is a scorcher and we hope to start collaborating with him as soon as possible. It would be very interesting to hear him sing on some reggae production from Grant Phabao…. Alex Puddu is a Copenhagen-based Italian producer we had on our radar for some time now. His Soultiger project is a treat, and from the album released earlier this year was extracted for a 45 release an original composition featuring the legendary Joe Bataan on vocals. It took us some convincing, but we couldn't pass on getting this track in here. The tune is very addictive, and Mr. Bataan's voice so unique, so purely soulful! There's also Italian soundtrackish funk from La Batteria, French P-Funk band Horndogz featuring Parliament/Funkadelic/Drugs singer Clip Payne, and we close this new chapter feets in the sand, with a relaxing piece of Samba Funk from Dambô & Pauliño Nunes in Recife, Pernambuco, northeastern Brazil. This music is good for you.

About Connie Price and the Keystones :
Connie Price and the Keystones are a musical group from Los Angeles, California who throw in elements of '60's and '70's film scores, Jamaican production aesthetics, African and Brazilian overtones, psychedelia, hip-hop and a whole bunch of soul. Though the name connotes a female lead, Connie (Constantine to be exact) Price and The Keystones is in fact a project helmed by 6'4" guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Dan Ubick (former guitarist for Breakestra, Myron & E, Hollie Cook and De La Soul).

About "El Niño" :
"El Niño was inspired by all the funky late 60's/early 70's soundtracks I love... folks like Isaac Hayes, Willie Hutch and Dennis Coffey. Jake is absolutely tearing the drum kit apart while Ethan holds it all down with his no-nonsense bass riff. All my favorite ingredients... Fuzz guitar, funky flute courtesy of James King, nasty horn hits. Hope all our listeners enjoy it as much as I did making it with the guys." - Dan Ubick

About Soul Scratch :
Soul Scratch is a hard hitting groove machine, built in LA's San Fernando Valley, on a mission to save the world from mediocrity. In short, this is not your mother's soul band. Johnny Chou, Joel Givertz, Adam Greenberg, Matt Reale, Dale Spollett and a host of musicians combine their love of The JB's, Booker T & the MG's, Curtis Mayfield and all 1960-70's soul. Utilizing soul solid rhythms, soaring horn lines and silky vocals to creating a uniquely Southern California sound that has become their hallmark. Soul Scratch is rapidly branching out of their LA base on a quest to bring good times, quality get down and their own special brand of soul to every corner of the country.

About "Pacified" :
"The lyrics were written to try and shine a light on how people accept the violence, horror, inhumanity, and greed we see everyday, and to try and remind everyone that this is not always how it was and we can change it together." - Soul Scratch

Grant Phabao : official | bandcamp | facebook | juno | parisdjs | soundcloud | youtube

About Grant Phabao & RacecaR :
Chicago MC (now Paris-based) RacecaR has been recording and touring quite a lot in France these years. With bands Afro Latin Vintage Orchestra, Dafuniks or Sax Machine, with producers Etienne de la Sayette, Grant Phabao or Lawkyz, with beatmakers Asagaya, Blanka, DJ Suspect & Doc TMK, ICBM Son Of A Pitch or Soul Square… for sure we're missing a few other cool cats in that list, but you get the point: every musician who meets RacecaR over here understands very quickly how cool the man is, how tight his flow goes, how masterfully his rhymes are delivered, and how in any kind of context he's able to fit in with style. RacecaR started working with the French producer Grant Phabao approximatively one year ago, with a simple concept in mind: exploring some new rare grooves of reggae, ska, afrofunk, soul and jazz, on which he would try rhyming and rapping - uncharted waters in terms of tempo for a boom-bap aficionado! Summer 2014 things shot off with an afro-funk-hip-hop monster, 'Return Of The Dig-Fu', followed in the fall by another smashing hip hop/funk hybrid, 'Rock Your Boat', and close to the end of the year, by a third single, 'We Do Anything', exploring a different blend with the lyricist's groovy rhymes recorded over one of Grant Phabao's heavy one drop reggae riddims, and featuring Parisian activist Taiwan MC on guest vocals.

About "One Two One Two" :
The voyage in a sea of styles is far from over though, as RacecaR has now to face a psychedelic funk whirlwind with heavy stompin' & swingin' beats! Borrowing its chorus from Canadian MC & friend Jeff Spec, 'One Two One Two' sees our MC in great shape, delivering expertly crafted verses one after the other. It seems as if he could even confront a tropical storm now… but that's a story to be told on Paris DJs later on.

Baby Jaymes : tumblr | discogs | facebook | instagram | soundcloud | twitter | youtube

About Baby Jaymes :
Baby Jaymes has a style all his. With a sound described as part Soul, part R&B, party Hip-Hop and party mystery, his "Ghetto Retro” sound is one of a kind. The Oakland-based musician boasts an expansive resume with credits that include work with R&B legend Raphael Saadiq and funk luminary George Clinton he has also had his music featured in major motion pictures such as Malibu’s Most Wanted, My Baby’s Daddy, and Any Given Sunday.
Sometimes referred to as "The Black Beck,” in reference to the genre-pushing rocker, Baby Jaymes’ critically-acclaimed first album, The Baby Jaymes Record, confirmed his status as a musical chameleon, as well as an artist to watch for. Most recently Baby Jaymes released a single, "Heart & Soul,” a moving declaration of who he is and his musical intentions. He addresses how his sound is different because he’s not in it for the hustle, singing "Why you always doing you, do what everybody do, if you’re really trying to get it?/ instead of trying to dumb me down, doing what they’re doing now, here’s something you won’t forget.”
The track incorporates the staples of what you’d imagine Ghetto Retro to be like: DJ Touré, of Hieroglyphics fame, adds scratches that roll along with the Motownlike beat, complete with trumpets and harmony vocals, and Baby Jaymes’ smooth and passionate voice is reminiscent of throwback greats like Stevie Wonder while still sounding fresh and new. People will inevitably still try to categorize Baby Jaymes with "Heart & Soul,” but in the end, he just wants you to stop and enjoy the music.

About "21 Questions" :
Soul-Hop singer Baby Jaymes creates soul infused indie Hip-Pop/R&B, steadily building a following of "Ghetto Retro" music fans-the term that's been coined to describe his soulful hybrid of funk, hip-hop, pop and soft rock styles. The singer’s two albums and countless singles, plus dozens of Film & TV placements, makes way for his debut 7" single, a divergent soul infused cover of 50 Cents '"21 Questions", that has Baby Jaymes singing the classic rap in his atypical style. The recording is also notable for being recorded with the rhythm section playing live together, unusual for today's recordings and more akin to the standard recording process in the early days of rock & roll and soul.

His work is inspired by soundtrack maestros such as Piero Piccioni, Piero Umiliani, Ennio Morricone, and Franco Micalizzi.

About La Batteria :
Brought together by their common love for soundtracks and Italian libraries of late sixties/early seventies, the four members of La Batteria are well-known musicians and veterans from Rome underground scene, with quite different experiences ranging from progressive post-rock, indie-pop, experimental jazz, hip hop and world music. The band performs original compositions informed by the type of songwriting, very sought after in the heyday of the italian movie glamorama: music for images in the years between 1968 and 1980, with the likes of experimental composers and masters at work Ennio Morricone, Stelvio Cipriani, Alessandro Alessandroni, Bruno Nicolai and bands such as Goblin and I Marc 4. All the instruments recorded are exclusively vintage, though the first self titled album of La Batteria is not merely revival, but a welcomed result of a sound/style projected into now.
