Paris DJs and Le Pigalle present the 9th edition of their 'Tour Operator' weekly rendez-vous in Paris, with Loik Dury and Dexter Story as the operating DJs for this session on february 11.

From Radio Nova to Paris DJs and Cedric Klapisch soundtracks, Loik Dury's musical activities are too numerous to quote. His record collection and knowledge are legendary and for each of his sets at Le Pigalle, he carefully picks a selection of vinyl, always managing to amaze the most ardent diggers while bringing smiles to the uninitiated faces. | |

Dexter Story is a Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist and producer, who integrated the Paris DJs musical universe through Todd Simon's Ethio-Cali Ensemble (on the 'Rise of the Troubadour Warriors' compilation), and offered an exclusive tune from his new project Wondem, for their 5th Afro/tropical compilation 'A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand'. He released last october a new album on Soundway Records, presented as "an East African-influenced mix of Ethio-Pop, Sudanese Soul & Californian Jazz". The vinyl is one of the great records of 2015, don't miss his rare appearance in France this thursday (february 11th) at Le Pigalle! |

Paris DJs Le Pigalle Tour Operator

Paris DJs & Le Pigalle present


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 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."
