Paris DJs Soundsystem - We Are The Fire Inside Your Mind - Tropical Grooves and Afrofunk International Vol.2
The first Paris DJs Soundsystem compilation 'Dis Is Good For You' happened like this: we sent an email with a message of unity to our network of artists, asking for some "Afro/Tropical" tracks for an upcoming compilation. We gathered all the music we received, agregated a playlist, designed and artwork and found a title.
Released at the end of october 2012, the compilation is Paris DJs' bestseller, available on bandcamp, junodownload, itunes, amazon, etc. It gathers tracks from Grant Phabao, The Jays, Adrian Quesada, Carlton Livingston, The Lone Ranger, Kaleta, Franck Biyong, Les Frères Smith, Lee Fields, Afrodyete, Muyiwa Kunnuji, Super Hi-Fi, Pyramid Blue, Kraked Unit, Joseph Cotton, Oghene Kologbo and Soul Sugar.

For the second volume , we worked the other way round. First we got the subtitle 'Tropical Grooves & Afrofunk International Vol.2', for which we found a title, 'We Are The Fire Inside Your Mind', fitting our "Afro/Tropical" concept, with a new direction towards the mystic. Amazing illustrator Ben Hito designed an original artwork. And now we're sending the finished art cover to our network of artists, asking for tracks!
