MIXTAPE: Paris DJs Select Great Playlist Of New Tunes

Our friends over at the always-tasteful Paris DJs have put up a downloadable mixtape of some of the grooviest nuggets of recent vintage for your listening pleasure. Yes, the Friends & Family Vol 1 set is your audio update on the dopest sounds of today. Their website has given coverage to so many great contemporary bands of the funk, reggae, soul, hip-hop, jazz and boogaloo scenes that it's like they want to do the work for you, keeping you up to date with the freshest arrivals.

All of the tunes selected here are from late 2016 or 2017. They cover a lot of stylistic ground but the whole thing keeps your head nodding for the entire program (aprox. an hour and 45). And of course we are pleased to be amongst the Friends & Family with a selection from the Terrificos 2xLP Vaya Pa'l Sur / Go South (available from the Peace & Rhythm webshop). And P&R artists Super Hi-Fi are also here. But there are so many other smoking highlights here. From the likes of reggae icon Mykal Rose and the jammy funk of Lettuce to the slamming afro-grooves of Jungle Fire and Brownout's cover of the Mickey & The Soul Generation classic "Iron Leg", you get a playlist for car, bar, work or home.

Here is the mix. You will most certainly enjoy this selection!

Thanks to Paris DJs for another great mix! Keep an eye out for their various record, CD, download, box set and t-shirt projects, often crowd-funded and including original productions and remixes by Grant Phabao and the recognizable artwork by Ben Hito.
