Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Incredible & Out-There Covers

Paris DJs Soundsystem Incredible and Out-There Covers

This is the 5th 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… and maybe the funnier one! Our friends hosting the mix this time come from Italy, check Martini & Jopparelli's Music Selections for some hip hop, reggae, jazz & soul mixtapes and news. This mix, on an 'around the world' tip, might be the most eclectic one of the latest series, with some really surprising re-interpretations. 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 Al Caiola, Les Baxter, Flames Of Araby, Hijos de Agüeybaná, Juncal y sus Calistros, Little Francisco Greaves, Los Albas, Los Colorados, Malik Adouane, Manny Manuel, Mariachi El Bronx, Mohamed Amer, Sakarin Boonpit, Sroeng Santi, Vanusa
