Today we have a very special exclusive mix from the mighty Paris DJs crew. If you follow us, you’ve heard about them and their crazy mixes. They are closing their worldwide-famous mix series and right now they are making “THE” big step by becoming a record label. Hard work and quality pays!
To celebrate, they decided to give away 10 great mixes on 10 different blogs, and we luckily got one spot, so here we go! Enjoy this great mix.
“10 different blogs or websites run by people supporting us, collaborating with us or just following us have accepted to host an exclusive thematic mix of covers, in the vein of our cult ‘Molesting Laura’ series, mixed by Grant Phabao & Djouls from the Paris DJs Soundsystem and illustrated by Ben Hito.
One more mix in this series will be offered on Paris DJs, between dec 25 and dec 31st. This mix will be the 400th one posted on the site and the last one of the Paris DJs podcast. As with the closing part of fireworks, we wanted to do a ‘bouquet final’, releasing 11 mixes in just a few days…
But this is not the end, Paris DJs is now a label releasing something new every week, with lots of surprises and collaborations to happen in 2013.
We intend to keeping on painting the Internet wind in many ways. Thanks for staying connected.” – Paris DJs
