After several years of work and different collaborations (with SAI SAI, SUPA JOHN, RASBORAS, AMINA,…), PHILIPPE and YAO, the two DJINS multi-instrumentists released their first album in 2000, “Djins” on HAMMERBASS label.
They already acquired a solid live reputation playing regularly with DUB ACTION sound system all over in France and as residents of the Paris Elysée Montmartre “Jungle Fever” parties. Live, they mix machines and instruments for the best dancing efficiency.
At ease with Reggae/Dub, Drum’n’bass, Jazz or Traditional Music, these “made in France Sly & Robbie” are everywhere: the famous French magazine LES INROCKUPTIBLES included them on their Summer 99 Sampler while another track is featured on the German label ECHO BEACH compilation “FRENCH DUB CONNECTION” (June ‘99).
DJINS composed the music and produced the French singer CHET album (May 2001) as well as some French raggamuffin SAI SAI tracks.
Then in 2002, they released their side project album under the name of PARIS YARD “Dubvisions” on Hammerbass Records (BASSCD009) and co-produced French reggae new talent: BABY G (“H.IM” / BASSCD013).
