Paris DJs Soundsystem - Dont Sell Your Soul 45s

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Wearplay LP#20 - Don't Sell Your Soul 45s (T-shirt/Mix bundle, Paris DJs/Le T-shirt Français, 2017)


In the back of my mind I had this idea for quite some time, of a selection of vinyl we have in stock at the Paris DJs Record Store. In between other projects I finally managed to make it a reality, thanks to Erik Rug and Loik Dury who helped me pick the best tunes from our 45s stocks, thanks to Grant Phabao who carefully mixed the tracks and mastered the whole thing, and thanks to Ben Hito, who...

Paris DJs Soundcloud Selection Vol 15

Paris DJs Soundcloud Selection Vol.15


Last week's Paris DJs Soundcloud Selection was mostly downtempo business.

Paris DJs Playlist February 2013

Paris DJs Playlist - February 2013

As usual, we've focused on the vinyl, the glorious vinyl that some inflexible producers keep on putting out, from the Mocambo Records camp who hit us with delicous raw funk, from Mr Bongo Records who's just reissued two Ebo Taylor gems...
