Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1985, 1986 & 1987 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.26

We've reached 1985 and most of music is in a really bad shape. Music marketing is starting to morph thanks to the Grateful Dead who re-invented the direct-to-fan business the previous year, but music production is still hitting an unsurpassed low, almost everywhere. It might come as a surprise to...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1984 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.25

1984 is the tipping point, the limit before things start to go really sideways for a few years in music… Out of the 12 tracks we picked here, two were already released in 1982 on small labels or pressings, and one was recorded live in Japan in 1983, so we're cheating a little bit. But the point is...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Friends & Family Vol.1

For quite some time we wanted to cook a new "extravaganza" mix digging into the vast selection of current artists, bands and producers from the unique "Paris DJs universe". We started gathering recent and upcoming releases from friends, from people we’ve worked with in the past,...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1983 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.24

Things have been jumpy lately. The hard drive where ParisDJs.com was hosted died, we had to move to a new server and re-install all the backup. The website has been unavailable for a couple of weeks but we're back up finally, and it was high time we put up this selection of covers from the year...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1982 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.23

Even though it's a brand new year and we have many projects cooking for Paris DJs in the coming months, let's not forget our fan-favorite ongoing series of mixes of cover songs.

Loik - AfroTropik

A one hour-long, vinyl-only selection, with forgotten classics and nuggets to be (re)discovered. The mix starts with some Afrofunk (Antoinette Konan, Pat ‘Ndoye, Jean Guéhi); before diving down into the irresistible Cape Verdian pulse: groovy, psych, roots, pop, even nu disco; and closing in Haiti...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1981 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.22

From a groovy/tropical point of view, Interesting cover songs from 1981 weren't that easy to find. The sound of Sly & Robbie, present twice in this mix (with productions for The Tamlins or Bits & Pieces), was an obvious choice, but we've also dug up for you some classic soul, early...

Around The World - Take 5

French collective Around The World supported our crowdfunding campaigns many times. We offered to lend themselves to the Paris DJs thematic mix game and they were kind enough to accept the challenge. ATW picked the number 5 for their theme, and cooked a musical selection in quintuple time (five...

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1980 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.21

Here we are in the deep sea of the 1980s hunting for cool & groovy cover songs. The Betino's Record Store in Paris pointed us towards Gnonnas Pedro's version of James Brown 'I Got You' but we we had mixed and mastered the selection a few hours earlier so it didn't make the cut. Someone on...

Paris DJs Soundsystem - Jazz For Tiziano

Tiziano was one of the top backers of Paris DJs' third crowdfunding campaign during the summer of 2015. He choose the reward with the 15 CDs and the exclusive mix, saying: "I like the music you offer and the idea of getting an exclusive cooked just for me got me interested. I like jazz and...

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...

Loik Dury - Open-Minded Groovy Ride Spring 2016

It's been a long time since we published a mix from our beloved co-founder Loik Dury. Let's put things right with this new one without any boundaries, from acoustic to electric, with hot thangs and cold bits, some stuff quite deep but phat nonetheless, also some phat shit but deep nonetheless,...

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