Mr Moo - Abstractions In Space

Mr. Moo - Abstractions In Space

What really happened after the 90's? Past the electronic revolution, once all the freaks fled the overpriced cities, between the last gasp of experience and the last band standing in the minefield of our time, a bit before we found ourselves digitally brainwashed, there was a stream gathering, a loose joint venture of alternate currents, not really a scene or to twist Jim's words: "Weirds...

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...

The Greg Foat Group Girl With Robot and Flowers

The Greg Foat Group - Girl With Robot and Flowers - out on Jazzman

In 2011 Paris DJs named Greg Foat’s first outing, 'Dark is the Sun' (Jazzman), as one of its top ten albums of the year. I interviewed Greg back then (click here) because I was convinced that this young pianist was only just getting started. Little did I think that he’d be back so soon with a new, entrancing album of low-tech sci-fi jazz, 'Girl And Robot With Flowers' (Jazzman). This stunning new...

Interview with Miles Newbold / The Natural Yogurt Band (english version)

Miles Newbold / The Natural Yogurt Band (Interview by Nicolas Ragonneau, for Paris DJs - May 2011) Everything began three years ago at the Music Library down to my house. There I met Gerald André, The Norvins’ drummer. “Hey Nicolas, you should listen to this, man. It’s very good and I think it’s really your stuff” he said, picking a CD from a shelf. On the sleeve were two men dressed like...

The Natural Yogurt Band Miles Newbold

Interview de Miles Newbold / The Natural Yogurt Band (french version)

Miles Newbold / The Natural Yogurt Band (Interview réalisée par Nicolas Ragonneau - mai 2011) Interviewer un membre du Natural Yogurt Band ressemble à la quête du Graal ou de la pierre philosophale. Difficile et obsédant. La comparaison s’arrête ici, car finalement, j’ai réussi. Tout a commencé il y a trois ans. J’étais à la discothèque municipale en bas de chez moi, je discutais avec mon ami...
