Paris DJs Tour Operator #24 at Le Pigalle on thursday, may 26th with DJs Loik Dury & Emmanuel Santarromana
French DJ Emmanuel Santarromana is graciously rewarding us with a surprise visit. On an express trip in Paris from his exile in Shangaï, he's coming to share his latest favourite tunes. He'll be joining his long-time friend Loik Dury, who's musical activites, from Paris DJs to Cedric Klapisch movie soundtracks, are too numerous to quote. Loik' 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.

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."
