A tribute to Norman Whitfield :
In the past, you might have stumbled upon on of our summer mixes, cooked by one of our DJs, called... Norfield Whitman. As most of us here in the Paris DJs crew, he's just another NORMAN WHITFIELD passionate. As a frequent reader of this blog, you probably already know about the man. Norman Whitfield is a giant in our books, a legend of Psychedelic Soul, one of the most talented songwriters, producers and arrangers of all time. Nuff' said. R.I.P. Norman, you're the one!

Help! This is "Paris DJs mix #131", the last I was able to access was "Paris DJs mix #123". Where are the others? Did I miss something?? Are 124...130 not 4 public???

I just ask as your work is a window to the world of music I like. 10 or more years ago the Swiss radio station Couleur3 played music from Africa and South America the whole sunday. Paris DJs filled the gap.
