Rhythm & Silence – Paris Sounds 10/24/17

Written by Gray on October 24, 2017

This week’s program is a big shout out to two French production entities. First half hour is dedicated to the sounds of Grant Phabao and the Paris DJ label. If you don’t know this label/producer then check it out. Consistently high quality funky work, with an excellent range of rhythms. Everything from heavy Afrobeat to Roots and Funk. Some wicked production backed up by some heavy players.

Second half hour is dedicated to Radio Nova and their “La Boîte en Carton” series. This is a series of 24 mixes, each one for a specific hour. Some really wonderful stuff here, Nina Simone, Sixto Rodriguez, some cumbia, funk, on and on. An and fabulous eclectic collection from a group of people who obviously really love their music, and the diversity of beats. If that’s not enough, then keep in mind this is just one of their collections…
