Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Friends & Family Vol.1

For quite some time we wanted to cook a new "extravaganza" mix digging into the vast selection of current artists, bands and producers from the unique "Paris DJs universe".

It would...

Bio Ritmo - Oriza (7", Peace & Rhythm, 2015)

That's how Paris DJs got in touch with salsa band from Richmond, Virginia Bio Ritmo a few years back, leading to the release of their digital single 'Picaresca' in july 2013, soon followed by an exclusive mix, and a year later by a masterful album released on Vampisoul, 'Puerta Del Sur'.

Super Hi-Fi - Q Street

Super Hi-Fi / Big Mean Sound Machine (split 7", Peace & Rhythm, 2015)

We can't enough of these unique cats at Paris DJs! 'Q Street' is taken from their latest digital EP of the same name that you can grab on their bandcamp page. On the flip is American afrobeat band Big Mean Sound Machine with a 45...
