Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1983 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.24



Things have been jumpy lately. The hard drive where ParisDJs.com was hosted died, we had to move to a new server and re-install all the backup. The website has been unavailable for a couple of weeks but we're back up finally, and it was high time we put up this selection of covers from the year 1983, which has been finished for a couple of months already! As you can imagine, since we're approaching the middle of the 1980s, things ain't getting any easier. As a record store owner was telling us some while ago, in 1983 cheap synthesizers landed on the market, sounding as cheap as their price, eveybody started using them, so music stopped being that interesting globally. Which doesn't mean there ain't no gem to find digging the crates, only that the digging has to go deeper than before! And that's how this mix was prepared, through hours of checking releases from 1983, hoping to find interesting, rare grooves from that year, which were covers of other songs… Well we found a private pressing more than inspired by Stevie Wonder, soulful, funky or tropical covers of Weldon Irvine, Rick James, Captain Beefheart, Sly Stone, Al Green, Led Zeppelin or David Bowie, and an early Danny Elfman take on Cab Calloway which will inspire him to re-do it for the "Nightmare Before Christmas" soundtrack (as the "Oingo Bongo song").

I have been surfing online more than three working hours today, however I never found any kind of interesting document like your own. It is quite worth enough to me. Personally, if all web owners and blog writers created great articles as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than previously.

I believe everything published made a ton of sense.
However, what about this? suppose you composed
a catchier post title? I am not suggesting your content isn't solid., however what if you added something that makes people want more?
I mean Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1983 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.24 -
Paris DJs is kinda plain. You should look at Yahoo's front page and see
how they create article headlines to grab people to click.
You might add a video or a related picture or two to get people excited about everything've written. In my opinion, it might make your blog a little bit more interesting.

You really make it seem so uncomplicated with your presentation but I find that topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and incredibly broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I can try to get the hang up of it!
