Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Free The Robots

(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) T.I.M.E.C., 2009-03-22

Free The Robots, alias Chris Alfaro (with the help of keyboardist/guitarist Phil Nisco), comes from Santa Ana, California, and is just one of the most interesting DJ/beatmakers around! He's mostly released tracks on cult labels, very limited editions with incredible artwork, on Obey Records particularly (along with The Gaslamp Killer and his super heavy beats), on Eadsel in Japan, on Jazz&Milk or Equinox in Germany, with a new album coming soon on Alpha Pup... Expect instrumental hip hop fusing breakbeats with psychedelia, prog rock, obscure samples, old jazz, blues, trip hop, soul and electronic bits. This is the new thing!

There are two mixes that have just totally blown me away. This and the Viktor Kiswell mix have restored my faith in music. They make me want to brush off technics and start DJing again. They have had a profound impact on the way I think- is that too strong? Regained my sense of why Paris is the city to live in and made my commute to work actually enjoyable! Please dont stop pleasing us with these amazing pieces of art. Thanks. T

About the mixes & Technics I agree with Toby C. But I have never been to Paris. My Bad. Peace.
