'Take The Chains Off Your Brains - Psychedelic Hip Hop, Funk & Jazz Grooves will be the 5th compilation coming out on the Paris DJs label, and the second one dwelving into the complexities of the Hip Hop culture for the Paris DJs Soundsystem crew, after the prized 'It's The New Hip Hop Thing' compilation released on the now defunct Vibrations magazine in 2009.

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Take The Chains Off Your Brains
Psychedelic Hip Hop, Funk & Jazz Grooves
Already four Paris DJs Soundsystem compilations have been released so far:

- 'Rise Of The Troubadours Warriors' (july 2013)
- 'Have You Ever Been To Electric Afroland?' (oct 2013)
For this fifth volume, the subtitle will be be 'Psychedelic Hip Hop, Funk & Jazz Grooves', for which we found the following title: 'Take The Chains Off Your Brains?', fitting our "Psychedelic Hip Hop" concept. Amazing illustrator Ben Hito asked one of his estimeed collegues Bernard Bittler designed an original artwork, mind-blowing stuff in our books really. And then we're sending the finished art cover as a source of inspiration to our network of artists, asking for tracks…
The selection will be curated by the Paris DJs crew with the help of Miska from Miska Events.
