Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1981 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.22 (MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2016-11-02 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 electro/hip hop, New Orleans backbeat, deep reggae and leftfield grooves. Even with the hardest constraints, the Paris DJs sound rises like a phoenix everytime (no Conchita pun intended). Tracklisting : 01.
