Paris DJs Tour Operator #15 at Le Pigalle on thursday, march 24th with DJs Loik Dury & Vito
From Radio Nova to Paris DJs and Cedric Klapisch soundtracks, Loik Dury's musical activities are too numerous to quote. His record collection and music stories are legendary, and for this DJ set Le Pigalle, he'll be playing his own, characteristic kind of eclectism, from soulful to lustful.
Vito is one the legendary behind-the-scenes men from many artists, labels and events of the music scene in France those last 20 years. Heretik Sound System, Popof, Ark, etc., wouldn't have gone the same path without his unstoppable energy, joie-de-vivre and communicative positivism. A close friend of Paris DJs since the turn of the century, Vito is also a tasty record collector and DJ, and this first appearance at the label's weekly rendez-vous at Le Pigalle celebrates his official entry on the collective's roster.

THURSDAY, march 24th :
PARIS DJS SOUNDSYSTEM "APPETIZERS & HOT PLATTERS"
- LOIK DURY
Every thursday evening in Paris (*), a brand new Parisian party 100% feeling in an authentic district hotel : Le Pigalle, whose story was shaped by its surrounding cultural melting pot animating Montmartre's South side. With resident DJs : Loik Dury, Erik Rug, Fatta Soul Stereo, Grant Phabao, Djouls, Victor Kiswell + guests.
Le Pigalle is an authentic district hotel, whose story was shaped by its surrounding cultural melting pot animating Montmartre's South side. Victor Kiswell, one of the world's top record diggers (check his Paris DJs mix here) helped them build a strong musical identity, and even hand-picked a selection of LPs for each room — all turntable-equipped.
Stars of the Paris night, DJs have transformed the city into one of the party capitals of the world. Paris DJs – a collective of top DJs, including some of Radio Nova's original programmers - launched its own website www.parisdjs.com 10 years ago. Drawn to Pigalle's sexy, musical vibe, every Thursday they'll be spinning rare sounds with a hint of black music, a million miles from the muzak piped into conventional hotels.
"We know there's a close link between the hotel, music and culture generally, that's why we jumped at the chance to share our best vinyls with Le Pigalle", explains Loik Dury, one of the collective's hyperactive members. "Every Thursday, we're going to be inventing sounds unique to the hotel."
