The Best of 2014

It's already february 2015 and this article comes late - which always better than never! Digital sales have now become a thing of the past for many, since a bit of notoriety gets your music available for free in just a few hours after release, and since the taxation has now changed in Europe for exporting digital products (that's a 20% downfall for us in France on digital exports).

Calibro 35 Ogni Riferimento A Persone

Paris DJs Playlist - March 2012
