Paris DJs Best Of 2013 Singles

Paris DJs presents The 20 Best Singles of 2013

This year's been a special trip for us and a special treat for our listeners, since we've managed to put out 29 digital singles in the last months!

So you won't find in there many digital singles from other labels, sorry about the self-centrism. Sorry...

Grant Phabao and Djouls 21st Century Afro Spectacular Vol 3

Grant Phabao and Djouls - 21st Century Afro Spectacular Vol.3

When I was younger you couldn't find funky, soulful or psychedelic Afro music at all in France. Then I stumbled upon a used Fela CD and with the arrival of the 21st century I discovered Antibalas. Both rocked my musical world and changed my life forever. Flash forward to 2012 and I now run the Paris DJs music agency, producing with label partner Grant Phabao the same kind of Afro music I fell in...
