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...

The Bug - Angels & Devils

The Bug - Angels & Devils (CD/2LP, Ninja Tune, 2014)


Kevin Martin a.k.a. The Bug is quite big in the UK, where is albums 'Pressure' (2003) and 'London Zoo' (2008) made a lot of noise in the dubstep scene and its experimental dancehall variations. He's now moved to Berlin and has just released a new album, 'Angels & Devils'. AS the title implies, this is an album of two halves, opposing some trip hop moods that would be… the light, to some more...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Bajka Vol.2

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Bajka Vol.2


In January 2009, we posted a first mix focusing on the amazing voice of Bajka, a jazz/funk/soul/reggae singer from Germany who worked with many friends of ours and released music on many different labels. This first mix was a kind of retrospective of her work during the years 2005-2008, this second volume kicks off where we left, and aggregates some of her best tunes released between 2009 and...

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.

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...
