[comment faire?/how to?]

Info :
Latin music as seen through the eyes of Paris DJs Grant Phabao & Djouls sounds like nonconformist crate-digging mixed with deep funkiness, with a solid layer of good nonsense beneath them. The plats they're serving here assemble Peruvian or Brazilian soul, American funk, European salsa, remixed Columbian grooves and Miami latin hip hop. All dressed in their shining afro-latin stylings. The dishes are no less delectable and the cooking no less accomplished on the second part of the menu... Having lit their fires and greased their skillets, the chefs proceed to satisfy the demands of gourmets and gourmands alike, with Ethiopian ethno-jazz, Brighton's finest latinized electronics, Venezuelan disco, UK Boogaloo and American latin-rock, all served with more than a soupçon of hot sauce.

When you see a mix labelled as Afro-Latin there are only two possibilites - snooze-core, massage parlor background noise or killer latin icing on top of a afro-beat funk cake. Lucky for us the latter is the case with this super-cool mix. It's like the Latin Kings put out a hit on my ass! The Paris Djs step out with another killer selection, and be certain to click thru to the source for some sweet album art made up by Djouls.

We've reached 1985 and most of music is in a really bad shape. Music marketing is starting to morph thanks to the Grateful Dead who re-invented the direct-to-fan business the previous year, but music production is still hitting an unsurpassed low, almost everywhere.

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1984 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.25

1984 is the tipping point, the limit before things start to go really sideways for a few years in music… Out of the 12 tracks we picked here, two were already released in 1982 on small labels or pressings, and one was recorded live in Japan in 1983, so we're cheating a little bit. But the point is...
