Paris DJs Wearplay EP 014

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Wearplay EP#14 - Massive Hits From The Grant Phabao Factory (T-shirt/Digital album bundle, Paris DJs/Le T-shirt Français, 2017)


Grant Phabao is Paris DJs' in-house producer and sound engineer, and no doubt familiar to you as France's premier reggae lord. Over nearly two decades of superb music-making, he grew to be a prime purveyor of Jamaican Soul, wether labeled "ska", "rocksteady", "reggae", etc. After releasing albums with Jamaican legends Carlton Livingston, The Lone Ranger, The Jays or...

The 10th episode in the "Wearplay" series combining arts & craft in clothing, graphics and music looks like King Kong discovering the fire instead of holding the beautiful woman in his hand. In order to musically illustrate this trippy visual from poster artist Ben Hito, we've opted first for Jamaican band The Silvertones and their rocksteady scorcher "Fire" - of course....

Paris DJs Wearplay EP 009

Paris DJs Soudsystem - Wearplay EP#09 - Vinyl Is Good For You (T-shirt/Digital Single bundle, Paris DJs/Le T-shirt Français, 2017)


Times flies… It's the 3rd week and already the 9th release in our "Wearplay" series combining clothing, graphics and music. Some people have already yield to temptation, even though the first season of 15 episodes ain't fully published yet. We're hope many more will succumb to the beauty of the Ben Hito designs, the high quality of the cotton-brushed T-shirts, and the well-being and...

Paris DJs Soudsystem - Wearplay EP#08 - Rise Of The Troubadour Warriors (T-shirt/Digital Single bundle, Paris DJs/Le T-shirt Français, 2017)


"Rise Of The Troubadour Warriors" truly is one of Paris DJs' more loveable projects. It's one of the most accomplished of the "Tropical Grooves & Afrofunk International" CD/digital compilations. It's a magnificent piece of visual art, one of the best-ever works from French illustrator Ben Hito. The poster version sold out quite fast, so we were quite excited to see what...

The fifth in our "Wearplay" series combining clothing, graphics and music production is an album already released on vinyl and CD last year, thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign. It was conceived as a hip hop album that wouldn't be beatmaking (hip hop beats), but would incorporate rapping over organic grooves such as afrofunk, soul, jazz, ska or reggae, with vocals from...
