Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1979 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.20

20 years already! This series of mixes, of cover songs recorded or released during the same year, started with 1960, and we've now reached 1979! The 1960s and the 1970s have been fully covered — pun intended. For this closing chapter on the seventies, we've been diggin' heavily into Jamaican music...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1978 - Standards, Versions & Revamps Vol.19

Damn things are not getting easier as I'm approaching the 1980s. In 1978 there's just SO MUCH of disco in the groovy records. There's also a vast amount of punk and pop/rock released of course, but that's not really what we're about in this series of mixes here. 1978 was not that bad a year, I...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1977 - Standards, Versions & Revamps Vol.18

1977 was the year of the Punk explosion, but it was also the year the famous Studio 54 opened in New York. Elvis Presley died during the summer, Marc Bolan followed in september, and "Saturday Night Fever" was released at the end of the year. On the albums front, besides the obvious...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1976 - Standards, Versions & Revamps Vol.17

Some say that 1976 wasn't the best year for music. They might be forgetting many great recordings from the likes of Marvin Gaye ('I Want You'), Steely Dan ('The Royal Scam'), Grateful Dead ('Steal your Face'), Parliament ('The Clones Of Dr. Funkenstein'), Funkadelic ('Tales of Kidd Funkadelic',...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1975 - Standards, Versions & Revamps Vol.16

The majority of what's in the music history books about the year 1975 is about rock. Disco is now big in clubs and starts to make big waves in the charts too. But there'sz lot of other cool stuff in the margins. Our selection here is rather classic, with soul, funk and jazz mostly. Paris DJs...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1974 - Standards, Versions & Revamps Vol.15

The year is 1974. Early disco is upon the music scene. Pre-selections of cool records with interesting cover songs are starting to become tighter. But no worry! The diggin craze (also called "Dig-Fu" in our inner circle) is infinite. The more music you know, the more you have to discover....

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1973 - Standards, Versions & Revamps Vol.14

A new year starts and we can't be thankful enough for everyone who supported us last year. Now 2016 is here, rather exciting for Paris DJs. Many projects are in the vaults, quite ready to be released, including albums from Etienne de la Sayette, RacecaR or the Grant Phabao Afrofunk Arkestra. Also...

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Standards, Versions & Revamps Vol.13 - 1972

1972 was a great year for music. Most 1972 albums in artists discographies are really good ones. Artists such as Bobby Gentry had many country/soul crossover hits in the US in the previous years and influenced many others. Well that's what we felt as quite obvious while preparing this selection....

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1970 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.11

After the series of 10 mixes from the 60's, here we go again with… no surprise: the 70s! The chronological order is respected, with, first things first, a selection of cover songs recorded or released during the year 1970, mainly on a SOUL tip. Paris DJs keeps on diggin'!! Paris DJs Soundsystem...

This tenth mix in the Standards, Versions & Revamps' series closes the first chapter - the 1960s - with a selections of covers recorded or first released in 1969. Ranging from Jamaican reinterpretations of recent hits to soul takes on rock hits, those 40 minutes of (mostly) HEAVY SOUL should be...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1968 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.9

Rather than trying to find some covers released in 1968 which would reflect the events from that year, such as the assassination of Martin Luther King, the Soviet Union invasion of Czechoslovakia, anti-Vietnam war protests throughout the western world, The Beatles' 'White Album' or the Mexico...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1967 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.8

1967 was the year of the summer of love and of The Beatles' masterpiece 'Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band' (and of course many other great records). With acid, musicians experienced what it took Tibetan monks 20 years to obtain, opening the doors of perception in 20 minutes. On the covers front,...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1966 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.7

1966 it is, there's war in Vietnam leading to inflation, race riots increasing in America's cities, a space race between the US and the USSR to be the first to step on the moon. Carnaby Street in London rules fashion, the swinging sixties start to be replaced by a growing flower power. Bands such...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1965 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.6

The year this time is 1965, we're right in the middle of the 1960s. Frank Herbert puts out the first volume of his 'Dune' masterpiece, the Mary Quant-designed Mini Skirt appears in London and will be the fashion statement of the decade, Beatles & Stones are so big, while The Grateful Dead with...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1964 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol.5

This idea of doing a loooong series of mixes covering half a century of music came to us more nearly two years ago. After so many 'Molesting Laura mixes and a blast of a dozen new mixes of covers at then end of 2012, we couldn't just stop there. Mixes of cover songs are cool by essence, since...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1963 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol.4

Fourth volume in our series of selections of covers from the same period, this mix focuses on the year 1963, gathering Jazz, Soul, Folk, Latin, French Chanson, and Rhythm & Blues interpretations of hits from the past of that time. Of course after 1960, 1961 and 1962, it's not a big big surprise...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1962 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol.3

Opening with a standard penned by Doc Pomus & Phil Spector for Ben E. King, this selection of (mostly) covers released in 1962 shows once again that classics are timeless. The sixties are still in the early stages and the global vibe is swinging, just starting to get a little poppy, as you'll...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1961 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol.2

As explained in the 'Volume One', this series of mixes in the 'Molesting Laura' vein explores the concept of artists covering other artists' songs, but this time through the years. This selection from records released or recorded in 1961 (excepted for one exception from hte mid/late 60s) keeps on...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1960 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol.1

The 'Molesting Laura' series of mixes ranks amongst Paris DJs' most popular ones. With this new series in the same vein, we've decided to keep on exploring the concept of artists covering other artists' songs, but this time through the years! It'll be mixes of covers (the kind you're used to) but...
