Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1985, 1986 & 1987 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.26

We've reached 1985 and most of music is in a really bad shape. Music marketing is starting to morph thanks to the Grateful Dead who re-invented the direct-to-fan business the previous year, but music production is still hitting an unsurpassed low, almost everywhere. It might come as a surprise to everyone following this series of mixes of cover songs all recorded or released the same year, but there's no much sense in keeping on digging for many more months through mid-1980s music, while there's so much quality music from other periods… Which is why we've decided to hurry things up a little bit, with a mix gathering covers released between 1985 and 1987. Hope you'll like it!

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it.|

You've seen how Wisdom Access Questions help in a work- related scenario, but they are equally effective in other areas of your life, such as romantic relationships. My friend Scott recently told me how WAQs led him and his wife to have what she said was "one of the best conversations" they'd had in years. His wife had a problem she wanted to discuss, and what Scott had done was resist his natural urge to jump in with a solution. Instead, he talked through the issues involved, using "what" questions only. His wife was able to solve her own problem, thanks in no small part to Scott's attentive questions. She felt connected to him and very loved and supported.

Needed to create you this little bit of observation so as to say thank you again for your unique secrets you have discussed in this case. This is so extremely generous with people like you to grant unreservedly just what a few people could have marketed as an e book to end up making some bucks for their own end, most notably since you could possibly have tried it in case you desired. The techniques as well acted as a great way to fully grasp that other people online have the same dreams much like my own to see whole lot more with respect to this condition. I am sure there are numerous more pleasurable occasions ahead for folks who take a look at your site.

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1984 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.25

1984 is the tipping point, the limit before things start to go really sideways for a few years in music… Out of the 12 tracks we picked here, two were already released in 1982 on small labels or pressings, and one was recorded live in Japan in 1983, so we're cheating a little bit. But the point is...
