Paris DJs Soundsystem - Is That Jazz ?

Paris DJs Soundsystem Is That Jazz
Paris DJs Soundsystem - Is That Jazz?
(MP3 Podcast on T.I.M.E.C., 2009-03-11

This mix started as a 'Hip Hop vs Jazz' mix and soon evolved into a '21st Century Swing' selection. But then we figured we really loved our b-boy caps and decided to go towards turntablism, playing around with jazz samples and more cut'n'paste of swinging beats. Props to Ali B of Air Recordings for releasing such quality 45s - we played one in this mix and licenced two others for the 'It's The New Hip Hop Thing' compilation out now (Vibrations/Harmonia Mundi)! More friendly UK labels are here too with Belleruche from Tru Thoughts and Mike-L from First Word...
