Paris DJs Soundsystem - African Mashed Potato Popcorn Vol.10 - When Afrobeat Meets Jazz

Renegades Of Jazz- Paradise Lost (CD/2LP, Agogo, 2015)

Renegades Of Jazz - Fire EP (12", Agogo Records, 2014)

We had the chance to get the visit of Renegades Of Jazz last week at Paris DJs.

The man brought copies of his latest EP on glorious 12...

DustyTape - Go Slow

'Go Slow' is a traditional shout from the Caribbean islands. You hear it on the sea side as an echo of your quick footsteps if you are one of those urban weary beasts. The locals, not only the rastas, makes fun of you, there is no way to hurry up after all… At some point that's what we want to...

Paris DJs Playlist - February 2013

February 2013 was a short month, as every year, but that didn't stop independant labels and artists to overwhelm us with download links and promotional records.
