Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Friends and Family Vol 1

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Friends & Family Vol.1


For quite some time we wanted to cook a new "extravaganza" mix digging into the vast selection of current artists, bands and producers from the unique "Paris DJs universe". We started gathering recent and upcoming releases from friends, from people we’ve worked with in the past, from many of those musicians who just kill it out there, while being unheard on the radio. It would...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1983 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol 24

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1983 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.24


Things have been jumpy lately. The hard drive where ParisDJs.com was hosted died, we had to move to a new server and re-install all the backup. The website has been unavailable for a couple of weeks but we're back up finally, and it was high time we put up this selection of covers from the year 1983, which has been finished for a couple of months already! As you can imagine, since we're...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1982 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.23


Even though it's a brand new year and we have many projects cooking for Paris DJs in the coming months, let's not forget our fan-favorite ongoing series of mixes of cover songs. We've reached now the year 1982, things aren't getting any easier. Madonna made her debut and so did The Violent Femmes. Michael Jackson released "Thriller", Prince somehow was already in "1999" while...

Loik - AfroTropik

Loik - AfroTropik


A one hour-long, vinyl-only selection, with forgotten classics and nuggets to be (re)discovered. The mix starts with some Afrofunk (Antoinette Konan, Pat ‘Ndoye, Jean Guéhi); before diving down into the irresistible Cape Verdian pulse: groovy, psych, roots, pop, even nu disco; and closing in Haiti with Claudette & Ti Pierre’s sono mondiale anthem. Loik has been digging deep into his vinyl...

Paris DJs Tour Operator Magazine 4

Paris DJs Magazine #4 - Nov/Dec 2016


Dans quelques semaines, une fois encore, les six rennes du Père Noël viendront bramer dans vos cheminées. En attendant, nous on bosse comme des dromadaires. Le vieux barbu, qui ne nous a jamais vraiment eu à la bonne ne déposera rien dans nos souliers vernis. Cette année, une fois de plus, nous n'avons pas été très "sages". Il est vrai que, produire et mettre en ligne un nouveau morceau...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1981 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol 22

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1981 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.22


From a groovy/tropical point of view, Interesting cover songs from 1981 weren't that easy to find. The sound of Sly & Robbie, present twice in this mix (with productions for The Tamlins or Bits & Pieces), was an obvious choice, but we've also dug up for you some classic soul, early electro/hip hop, New Orleans backbeat, deep reggae and leftfield grooves. Even with the hardest constraints,...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1980 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.21


Here we are in the deep sea of the 1980s hunting for cool & groovy cover songs. The Betino's Record Store in Paris pointed us towards Gnonnas Pedro's version of James Brown 'I Got You' but we we had mixed and mastered the selection a few hours earlier so it didn't make the cut. Someone on facebook asked if we played Snatch's version of 'Another Brick In The Wall' but we didn't. Digging into...
