Paris DJs Tour Operator #20 at Le Pigalle on thursday, april 28th with DJs Loik Dury & Djouls
Djouls is one the founders and the label manager of Paris DJs. An activist on the musical web since the mid-90s, he's now one of the most respected tastemakers in his own field of "music you don't hear on the radio". While very busy with all things Paris DJs, on the diggin' side he's currently on a trip through time, with a series of mixes of cover songs from the same year, a voyage which started in 1960 a few months ago and is now passing through the mid-70s…
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 his DJ sets at Le Pigalle, he's playing his own, characteristic kind of eclectism, from soulful to lustful.

THURSDAY, april 28th :
PARIS DJS SOUNDSYSTEM "REVENGE OF THE DIG-FU" with :
- 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 the turntable-equipped rooms.
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."
