Todd Simon - Jazz on 45 Vol 2

Todd Simon - Jazz On 45 Vol.2

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...

While the mainstream has become more and more insipid, nostalgia of the past has been quite a big thing once again this year. Alas many labels have ducked out of our pages in 2013.
