Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1980 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.21





Here we are in the deep sea of the 1980s hunting for cool & groovy cover songs. The Betino's Record Store in Paris pointed us towards Gnonnas Pedro's version of James Brown 'I Got You' but we we had mixed and mastered the selection a few hours earlier so it didn't make the cut. Someone on facebook asked if we played Snatch's version of 'Another Brick In The Wall' but we didn't. Digging into this decade is a different kind of fun than the 60s or the 70s, and we think we managed to find some very exciting numbers. You'll let us know what you think. And suggestions for 1981 and 1982 are more than welcome!
