Cultures Of Soul - West Indies Vintage Funk Vol 4

Cultures Of Soul - West Indies Vintage Funk Vol.4


American label Cultures Of Soul was last featured in our Best Of 2014 selection with its superb 'Tropical Disco Hustle' compilation. We had invited COS in november 2011 for a mix of covers and in may 2012 for an African funk one. Now the label is back with a second volume of hard-to-find, disco-influenced, cosmic boogie or funk from Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica or the Bahamas, and it was high...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1968 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol 9

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1968 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.9


Rather than trying to find some covers released in 1968 which would reflect the events from that year, such as the assassination of Martin Luther King, the Soviet Union invasion of Czechoslovakia, anti-Vietnam war protests throughout the western world, The Beatles' 'White Album' or the Mexico Olympics 'Black Power' salute, we've stayed on the low on the political energy here, and instead focused...

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...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1967 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol 8

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1967 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.8


1967 was the year of the summer of love and of The Beatles' masterpiece 'Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band' (and of course many other great records). With acid, musicians experienced what it took Tibetan monks 20 years to obtain, opening the doors of perception in 20 minutes. On the covers front, though, things just slowly started to venture into psychedelic waters, as you'll hear in this...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1966 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.7


1966 it is, there's war in Vietnam leading to inflation, race riots increasing in America's cities, a space race between the US and the USSR to be the first to step on the moon. Carnaby Street in London rules fashion, the swinging sixties start to be replaced by a growing flower power. Bands such as Beatles, Monkees, Beach Boys, Mamas & Papas, Rolling Stones or Simon & Garfunkel are among...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1965 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.6


The year this time is 1965, we're right in the middle of the 1960s. Frank Herbert puts out the first volume of his 'Dune' masterpiece, the Mary Quant-designed Mini Skirt appears in London and will be the fashion statement of the decade, Beatles & Stones are so big, while The Grateful Dead with lead guitarist Jerry Garcia play their first concert, in San Francisco.
