Paris DJs Soundsystem - Some Of The Best Things In Life Are Free Vol.4



Paris DJs Soundsystem Some Of The Best Things In Life Are Free Vol 4

Following a successful crowdfunding campaign where we raised nearly 4000€ to press a new vinyl LP, it was kinda obvious to balance our karma and offer a new mix in our series of eclectic selections of free tunes found on the web. So, what's the best way to start a mix or a compilation? A Brownout tune, of course! We've found a rare Rock-Funk-Latin-Psych cover of The Beatles by our friends from the Paris-Austin Connection, this just perfect. What else? Well there's plenty more… starting with onljoe, a dub/reggae act from the UK we discovered thanks to the Ghostwriterz guest mix last november, and a dub from their latest (free) single by pioneering UK dub producer/selector Nick Manasseh. More dub vibes are next with melodica specialist Art-X from Tours, France, soon followed by an extract from the latest Grant Phabao free EP, featuring Jamaican deejay Reggie Stepper - marvelous and with great dynamics! We then head towards South America, with the addictive Brazilian hip hop/folk from Lucas Santtana, trippy psychedelic cumbia from Bareto in Lima, Peru, and a cool remix of Seu Jorge by Captain Planet… before going geographically nuts in a La Sono Mondiale manner, with some afrobeat recorded in one day in Cologne, Germany by Shareholder Tom, with Los Angeles-based rapper Malkovich voicing the famous 'Make It Fast Make It Slow' from late 70s Ghanean artist Rob, with mashups of Orgone with Jay-Z or Rjd2 with Common!! Pfffeeeww what a trip. Third and final part of the mix is more roots, with some organ funk from Soule Monde, American soul from Monophonics, UK folk jazz from Sara Mitra and, to close this selection on a light note, some loveable pop/folk from Nashville combo Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors. Every one of those tunes is available separately on the web (check the links in the tracklisting), because some of the best things in life are free, right?
