Submit your tracks for the 7th Paris DJs Soundsystem compilation!!
'A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand' will be the 7th compilation coming out on the Paris DJs label, and the fifth one dwelving into the ramifications of African music for the Paris DJs Soundsystem crew.

Paris DJs are looking for artists willing to participate by submitting tracks… Read the full article for complete info & conditions.
