Paris DJs Soundsystem - Jazz For Tiziano

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Jazz For Tiziano


Tiziano was one of the top backers of Paris DJs' third crowdfunding campaign during the summer of 2015. He choose the reward with the 15 CDs and the exclusive mix, saying: "I like the music you offer and the idea of getting an exclusive cooked just for me got me interested. I like jazz and experimental music, I grew up with rock. I ESPECIALLY like trumper (Jon Hassel, Paolo Fresu, Mark...

Todd Simon - Jazz on 45 Vol 2

Todd Simon - Jazz On 45 Vol.2


You can't even begin to imagine how much we DON'T endorse Mixcloud. The site just doesn't fit with the publishing of mixes standard we've developped for more than 10 years at Paris DJs. Which is why it's very nice to see our collegue Todd Simon uploading his 'Jazz on 45' mixes on Soundcloud, with a full write-up, including all the art covers and a track-by-track commentary, available on Wax...

PARIS DJS BEST OF 2014

The Best of 2014


It's already february 2015 and this article comes late - which always better than never! Digital sales have now become a thing of the past for many, since a bit of notoriety gets your music available for free in just a few hours after release, and since the taxation has now changed in Europe for exporting digital products (that's a 20% downfall for us in France on digital exports). Most have...

Paris DJs Playlist March April 2014

Paris DJs Playlist - March/April 2014


Seems like our call from last February was worth it, the resistance is organizing itself, we received a LOT of records - yes vinyl and CDs, both still exist and seem to ast much longer than digital releases in the real world… The Paris DJs collective has been very busy these last weeks, preparing not one, not two, but three new compilations, AND a new series of releases… so stay tuned cos' we have...

Paris DJs Best Albums of 2013

Paris DJs presents The 50 Best Albums of 2013


This year's best albums selection was the hardest one to make since we started being active on the musical web in 1996. There's a simple reason for that: we had never been that prolific as a label before. With 52 releases on Paris DJs (singles, albums, compilations or mixes) during the 52 weeks of 2013, most of our time has been spent cooking our own stuff rather than listening to the amazing...

Grant Phabao and Djouls 21st Century Afro Spectacular Vol 3

Grant Phabao and Djouls - 21st Century Afro Spectacular Vol.3


When I was younger you couldn't find funky, soulful or psychedelic Afro music at all in France. Then I stumbled upon a used Fela CD and with the arrival of the 21st century I discovered Antibalas. Both rocked my musical world and changed my life forever. Flash forward to 2012 and I now run the Paris DJs music agency, producing with label partner Grant Phabao the same kind of Afro music I fell in...

Grant Phabao and Djouls 21st Century Afro Spectacular Vol 2

Grant Phabao and Djouls - 21st Century Afro Spectacular Vol.2


Afrobeat is a form of music that's already been perfected and there are many bands who are just trying to attain that, most of the time writing their own compositions which reflect their own influences. Sometimes they'll play a Cuban clave or something else which somehow or other still fits. So unless Fela comes back to them and says Don't play Afrobeat, they're gonna keep on doing it. Here's our...

Mr. Chop (Interview by Nicolas Ragonneau, for Paris DJs - March 2012) Those of you who have been following Paris DJs for years will know about Mr. Chop (aka Coz Littler) for sure.
