The Djoon Experience - Mixed by Joaquin Claussell and Black Coffee

Djoon is nestled in a vibrant ‘new’ district of eastern Paris and for near 10 years has played host to known and unknown local and international talents from the soulful New Yorker to the afro deep South African, from the pioneers of Chicago and Detroit to Berlin’s deep tech or eclectic London artists… From my point of view it is from far the best place in Paris to listen to some real house music. Always seeking talent, of yesterday of today and of tomorrow, this temple of encounters between dancers and music lovers has seen its wooden dance floor trodden by clubbers from all over the world. Here is the last compilation of this club mixed by the legends Joaquin Joe Claussell and Black Coffee.


 1. DJ Fudge & Ezel - Call My Name feat. Mani Hoffman    


Any attempt ‘to bottle’ a night at such a special place is a fraught journey, one which we have taken and now as this musical church beckons its loyal flock to a very special evening of ‘worship’, we bring on one album, a night at the Djoon celebrating 10 years of dance floor joy, hosted by The legendary Joaquin ‘Joe’ Claussell on a very rare mix CD outing – and South African superstar Black Coffee.

“People don’t come here to show off, they have a natural style and they wanna enjoy themselves” Djoon owner and DJ, Afshin Assadian and his artistic director Lionel Marciano tell us. And this exactly what qualifies the place. Afshin’s apprenticeship was as a promoter and club manager and it wasn’t long before he realized that commercial pressure always prevailed over quality of music. Locating an empty space in a deserted district away from the main party places in Paris he developed an instant crush! Djoon was conceived.

Grown up and mature like the very best French wine…. music with soul is what you get there and what the album reflects. Joe’s mix was recorded in a hotel room in Tokyo, his hectic global schedule led him, on a Far Eastern stop over to put together a party in his room. Friends came and vibed with Joe as he worked the turntables, tape machines… a mix “not about the perfect beat…. but The Soul and The Funk”. Even though “it’s all over the place” it has a natural musical flow and as he eloquently describes it is a collage of Joaquin ‘Joe’ Claussell at that time.”

South Africans are the biggest consumers of house music in the world, and Johannesburg is the beating heart of their scene. If you’re looking for proof, there is no need to visit a nightclub. In turning on a television, listening to the radio or walking down the street, it’s clear that a 4/4 pulse is the metronome of everyday life. In this beautiful Southern Hemisphere oasis… fighting to shake its torrid Apartheid history House producers are bigger than The Madonnas and Coldplays so revered by music buyers north of the equator. Bring to the stage Black Coffee a household name and champion of Johannesburg’s preferred sound—vocal- led, percussive, melodic— a sound largely at odds with what’s popular in other international markets. This second CD2 is just perfect. Long time I never heard something like that.

We are very proud to be review this compilation that we received some weeks ago and that we’ve just reviewed. Big thanks also to Black Coffee and Joaquin ‘Joe’ Claussell for this amazing collection.
