01. A Collective Vision Of Peace 8:14

Following the events that occurred in several countries and closer to us in Paris and in response to the media and community’s reactions, we have decided to gather around between friends and record a version of Los Hermanos, written by Atahualpa Yupanqui, to advocate the importance of being united.

Hatred breeds hatred. War breeds war.

Suite aux évènements récents survenus dans bon nombre de pays et plus proche de nous dans les rues de Paris et à leur écho dans les médias, les réseaux sociaux et la société civile, nous avons décidé de nous réunir, entre amis, pour enregistrer une version de Los Hermanos, d’Atahualpa Yupanqui et faire valoir qu’il est important d’être unis.

La haine engendre la haine. La guerre engendre la guerre

Kaa ben waleya mounu tèmèna djamana tchan ma kan ana laminy ani françi bolon kono, ani kounafoni sèbè, ladjè kulu dow ani djamana syki den dow bèn na kan fara yonkon kan ni teriya sira ye ka donkily doh dah ni los hermanos tokoye,  ka yira ko ben ne yonkon teh djougouya deh be.

Nah ni djougouya ye. Kèlè debè na ni kèlè ye.

En reacción a los recientes acontecimientos sucecidos en en numerosos países  y más cerca de nosotros en las calles de París y a su eco en los medias y la sociedad civil, hemos decidido reunirnos, entre amigos para grabar una versión de Los Hermanos de Atahualpa Yupanqui, y demostrar lo importante de quedernos unidos.

El odio engendra el odio. La guerra engendra la guerra

Sandra Nkaké & Jî Drû - Dancing Girl - A Tribute To Terry Callier

Sandra Nkake and Ji Dru - Dancing Girl - A Tribute To Terry Callier
(Digital Single/Free MP3 download on 2011-11-06


A voice of so many colours and textures, a unique sound dedicated to telling the truth.
His truth. Everyday people’s truth.
The words he chose, the stories he painted with his singular music and poetry resound in every choice we make.
His music is around us, a guide line to never forget to give what we are.
This is a tribute to a free soul.

“Somewhere between time and space,
We shall be free.”

Ji Dru and Sandra Nkake

Marco Benevento - Coffee Cold (Galt McDermot cover)

Marco Benevento - Coffee Cold
(Free MP3 download on 2011-07-04

Amazing US keyboard player Marco Benevento is living up in the country with frogs and snakes and the Woodstock moon, workin' on a mad genius new studio album to be released sometime late next year!! In the meantime, lots of shows are on the horizon (check out the complete entry to this free track to access the full tour dates). Marco sent us this free track for the collaborative Paris DJs mix #300 but missed the spot by just a few days... It's a Galt McDermot cover, you've heard the original already in the 1968 movie The Thomas Crown Affair AND it's been sampled many times. It should get stuck in your head after just the first listen, and features Andrew Barr on drums and Dave Dreiwitz on bass. Well, that's what happened for me so I thought I couln't pass on sharing this one with everybody. His label The Royal Potato Faily agreed right away so here it is. Live and killer deep soul jazz recorded last april in Collinsville!

Production is 21st century soul jazz at its best, one the best Doctor L tracks we've heard in... well... weeks!!

The Mackrosoft - The Immortality Project (Grant Phabao Remix)
The Mackrosoft - The Immortality Project (Grant Phabao Remix)
(12" virtual release/MP3 Podcast on
Mackrosoft Records/T.I.M.E.C. MS0009R/TIMEC117/PARISDJS003, 2006-08-01

Info :
This track is not for music categories, but for recipe books : take elements from a US West coast jazz/funk lounge number [For example, "The Immortality Project" by Seattle's funkateers The Mackrosoft]. Select the 70's groovy melody of the Fender Rhodes and wah-wah guitar, of course. Cherish the sax licks from multiple-man Skerik. Don't forget the organ stylings from former Beastie Boys collaborator Money Mark. Then get the whole thing drenched into deep dub territory by expert in sound manipulation Grant Phabao. Don't get lost into deep Studio One or Rhythm & Sound dub but instead keep a nice electro jazz funky vibe flowing. You can now call it a "remix"... and start spreading the news!

A1. The Mackrosoft - The Immortality Project (Grant Phabao Remix)

Credits :
Original version available on The Mackrosoft album "Antonio's Giraffe", produced by Aja West and The Mackrosoft
Remix and additional instruments by Grant Phabao.
