Paris DJs Tour Operator #11 at Le Pigalle on thursday, february 25th with DJs Erik Rug & Djouls
Active on the music scene for more than three decades, Erik Rug is one of the legendary French DJs, along with Laurent Garnier and a selected few others. Currently resident DJ every friday at Le Silencio, the hypest club in Paris designed by David Lynch, he's also been a member of the Paris DJs collective since day one, more than ten years ago now. Twice a month Erik will be taking the decks at Le Pigalle to play a selection of new and old grooves from the vast & groovy Paris DJs musical universe. Those who remember his famous WaxGroove parties won't miss to come by…

Djouls is one the founders and the label manager of Paris DJs. An activist on the musical web since the mid-90s, he's now one of the most respected tastemakers in his own field of "music you don't hear on the radio". While very busy with all things Paris DJs, on the diggin' side he's currently on a trip through time, with a series of mixes of cover songs from the same year, a voyage which started in 1960 a few months ago and is now passing through the mid-70s…

You get the idea, Djouls & Erik are relentless diggers of old & new music, hence this week's title: "Return Of The Dig-Fu" (with a wink to Grant Phabao & RacecaR's song of the same name), following up on last month's "Rise Of The Dig-Fu"… because in the end it's all about the selection - nuff' said!

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25th :
PARIS DJS SOUNDSYSTEM "RETURN OF THE DIG-FU"
- ERIK RUG
Every thursday evening in Paris (*), a brand new Parisian party 100% feeling in an authentic district hotel : Le Pigalle, whose story was shaped by its surrounding cultural melting pot animating Montmartre's South side. With resident DJs : Loik Dury, Erik Rug, Fatta Soul Stereo, Grant Phabao, Djouls, Victor Kiswell + guests.
Le Pigalle is an authentic district hotel, whose story was shaped by its surrounding cultural melting pot animating Montmartre's South side. Victor Kiswell, one of the world's top record diggers (check his Paris DJs mix here) helped them build a strong musical identity, and even hand-picked a selection of LPs for each room — all turntable-equipped.
Stars of the Paris night, DJs have transformed the city into one of the party capitals of the world. Paris DJs – a collective of top DJs, including some of Radio Nova's original programmers - launched its own website www.parisdjs.com 10 years ago. Drawn to Pigalle's sexy, musical vibe, every Thursday they'll be spinning rare sounds with a hint of black music, a million miles from the muzak piped into conventional hotels.
"We know there's a close link between the hotel, music and culture generally, that's why we jumped at the chance to share our best vinyls with Le Pigalle", explains Loik Dury, one of the collective's hyperactive members. "Every Thursday, we're going to be inventing sounds unique to the hotel."
