PARIS DJS BEST OF 2014

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).

Of course that burned a lot of our time and the rest of our focus singles-wise has been mostly consumed by vinyl releases, 7 inches or 12 inches. So you won't find in there many digital singles from other labels, sorry about the self-centrism. Sorry...
