Established hip-hop artists New York based Theophilus London and Chicago based Jesse Boykins III team up for a fresh new side project PARIS 96. The first single they unveil “Afternoon” is an electronic fueled ballad incorporating both hip-hop and soul. Production thanks to Xaphoon Jones (of Chiddy Bang) who gives it just the right electronic kick blended with some organic organs. Theophilus brings the hip-hop flavor while Jesse contrasts with some soulful singing. This dropped earlier in the month, but was too good not to feature. This is off an upcoming EP set to release in April. Enjoy a free download courtesy of the artists. We will post as updates come in on the project.

Spring Awakening 2012 Recap Video
We are extremely happy to announce that we have teamed up again with Big Gigantic to throw one of the craziest parties ever in the country. First time it was Rowdytown at Red Rocks Amphitheater here in Colorado, and next stop is Chicago. This time the show is presented by Thissongissick, Silver Wrapper, and JAM Productions, and will be held at Aragon Ballroom, one of the biggest rooms in Chicago. Also joining Big Gigantic NYE bash will be none other then GRiZ. Other support will be announced soon. This will be the return of GRiZ to Chicago after his epic Grizmatik (Griz + Gramatik) set at a North Coast after party. We couldn’t be more excited to have a party with both these artists. Big Gigantic is bringing out their full new production, with lots of suprises in store. And GRiZ is sure to play an incredible set, and probably come out during Big G’s set to play his collaboration songs with Dominic (like he did at Rowdytown). If you are anywhere close to Chicago, this is the party to be at. This show may not have as many names as some other NYE parties, but if you went to Rowdytown, you know this isn’t going to be a show to forget. Tickets are on sale here, and are already on their way to being completely SOLDOUT. Don’t miss out on the best way to bring on the New Year.
