For this sixth volume, the subtitle will be be 'Kaleidoscopic Jazz & Mind-Bending Poetry', for which we found the following title: 'Spirituality and the Supernatural', fitting our "Hip Hop & Jazz" concept. Amazing illustrator Ben Hito asked estimeed collegue Bernard Bittler to design a new original artwork on which he added color and titles. 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.
