Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1977 - Standards, Versions & Revamps Vol.18


1977 was the year of the Punk explosion, but it was also the year the famous Studio 54 opened in New York. Elvis Presley died during the summer, Marc Bolan followed in september, and "Saturday Night Fever" was released at the end of the year. On the albums front, besides the obvious P-Funk gems (Parliament, Bootsy Collins, Eddie Hazel), there were Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, The Clash,...

Paris DJs Soundsystem - African Mashed Potato Popcorn Vol 10 - When Afrobeat Meets Jazz

Paris DJs Soundsystem - African Mashed Potato Popcorn Vol.10 - When Afrobeat Meets Jazz


This mix was cooked with only one person in mind: Collen Chandler, from Liverpool, who supported our 15 CDs anthology crowdfunding campaign and asked us to try on a "when afrobeat meets jazz" theme, mixing the modern & old with an emphasis on the modern. While preparing the selection, we found out this new mix fitted perfectly our decade-old 'African Mashed Potato Popcorn' series!...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1972 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol 13

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1972 - Standards, Versions & Revamps Vol.13


1972 was a great year for music. Most 1972 albums in artists discographies are really good ones. Artists such as Bobby Gentry had many country/soul crossover hits in the US in the previous years and influenced many others. Well that's what we felt as quite obvious while preparing this selection. But don't worry, we've kept it as funky and soulful as ever - Paris DJs' style. Excepted that we added...

Paris DJs Soundsystem Some Of The Best Things In Life Are Free Vol 6

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Some Of The Best Things In Life Are Free Vol.6


The "Free Music" biz is vast and mostly uncharted. While every kind of shitty media only spotlights music that is sold, distributed, promoted, subsidized, etc., meaning: music from people who might buy advertising, at Paris DJs we often take the opposite route. If some music doesn't need to be sold, sometimes it's because it can't be sold, sometimes it's because it's just too good to be...
