And if you're a rich musician/label/composer/etc :

Your track remixed by Grant Phabao
1000€

Your track remixed by Grant Phabao, illustrated by Ben Hito and reviewed on ParisDJs.com

1500€


Shipping costs :

For the 45s, shiping costs are 4€ for France, 5€ for Europe and 6€ for the rest of the world for the first one.
If you wish to order more than one 45, add only 1€ for shipping costs per additional 45 after the first one.

In a similar way, if you order a t-shit or a double vinyl LP, and want to add a few 45s to your basket, add only 1€ for shiping costs per 45.
If you're Paris-based, Paris DJs will organise for the vinyl release date a special event at the Betino's record store in Paris. You'll be able to get your records directly, have them signed, meet the crew, etc. - and of course avoid the shipping costs. In that case don't add any shipping costs


Why fund it?

Paris DJs have funded entirely all the music production, from composition & recording up until mix and mastering (or co-funded with some artists/labels on some co-productions). Paris DJs has also funded all the visual artworks, in collaboration with Ben Hito's KlassAffair society.

The 10.000€ will be used, in part, to fund the pressing of vinyl records :

- Six 45s, pressed at 300 copies each
Including : mastering, lacquers, conception and printing of the 4 colors centers, test-pressings, conception and printing of the 4-color "Paris DJs Soundsystem" sleeves, for a total cost of 7200€

 - One collector boxset which will gather all six 45s together, with only 100 copies produced
Conception and printing of the boxset will cost us 2400€

- One double vinyl LP, pressed at 500 copies
This includes mastering, lacquers, conception and printing of the 4 colors centers, test-pressings, conception and printing of the 4-color sleeve and liner, cellophaning, mastering and the whole follow-up process for a total cost of 5000€

- 50 "Paris DJs Soundsystem" T-shirts
For a cost of 400€

- A series of 4 different "Paris DJs Soundsystem" posters
For a printing cost of 1000€ (already funded by Paris DJs)

- Shipping costs worldwide
For an approximate cost of 2.000€

That's a total cost of 17.000€.
If everything goes according to plan, 12.000€ will be funded by this campaign.
We'll have 5.000€ left to find - through record stores pre-orders, complentary to this crowdfunding campaign.

Of course, the more you'll support us, the less we'll need the traditional music business way.
As Louis Armstrong used to say: "our music is a secret order" !


About Paris DJs :
Activists on the musical web since 1996, Djouls & Grant Phabao launched, in 2005 and with the help of former Radio Nova music director (1987-1997) Loik Dury, the ParisDJs.com website.

8 years later, Paris DJs has become a core institution of that same musical web. A genuine alternative media of music you don't hear on the radio, the site offers news, portraits, interviews, commented discographies, free singles and exclusives mixes.

Those mixes have been greatly responsible for Paris DJs' notoriety, with their original artwork, detailed tracklisting and professional mastering. More than 430 mixes have been published up until now, generating more than 3.8 millions of download, without any form of promotion, only through word-of-mouth!

The remixes from multi-instrumentalist/producer Grant Phabao have also been going all around the world, with nearly a million downloads of reggae reworks of George Clinton, The Herbaliser, Erykah Badu, Q-Tip and many others, AC/DC included!

In 2012 the media website becomes a label, and starts releasing a new single, album or compilation every week. Djouls & Loik are in charge of the artistic direction, famous Fench illustrator Ben Hito takes care of the graphic direction and Grant Phabao is the one dealing with the audio production process.

In a little bit more than a year, Paris DJs releases 4 roots reggae albums with Jamaican legends from Studio One (The Lone Ranger, Carlton Livingston, The Jays and The Silvertones), 4 afrofunk & tropical grooves compilations with artists from the whole wide world ("Dis is good for you", "We are the fire inside your mind", "Rise of the troubadour warriors" and "Have you ever been to electric afroland?"), two hip hop compilations ("Take the chains off your brains" et "Spirituality & the supernatural"), et nearly 50 singles.

Many confirmed artists participate in the project: Shawn Lee, Jungle Fire, Horace Andy, Franck Biyong, Afrodyete (The Breakestra), Doctor L, Lee Fields, Adrian Quesada (The Echocentrics, Brownout), Ocote Soul Sounds, Mop Mop, The Grits, Goat, Jungle By Night, The Grits, Brownout, Bio Ritmo, Todd Simon's Ethio-Cali Ensemble, The Funk Ark, The Herbaliser, Radio Citizen, musicians from Antibalas, from Fela's Egypt 80, from The Poets Of Rhythm, from The Souljazz Orchestra …. just to name a few.

All those releases are available in digital format, on Bandcamp and JunoDownload, and for the compilations and some selected singles iTunes, Amazon, Deezer, Spotify, etc.
