Motown Party at Armani/Prive Rooftop
The latest super soulful instalment of legendary Paris club night Motown Party is nearly upon us! Motown Party, based at Paris’ most soulful club Djoon since its remarkable launch there a decade ago, has perfected a magical, life-affirming, vintage mix of soul, funk and disco over the years which continues to attract fans from all over the world. It is Djoon’s oldest, most famous gathering.
Motown Party - the first Saturday of every month - is masterminded, as ever, by resident DJ Reverend P, whose ‘marathon’ all night sets themed around soaring Motown legends such as Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson, and New York club pioneers like Paradise Garage kingpin Larry Levan are already the stuff of 21st century dancefloor legend.
A passionate record collector, DJ Reverend P combines deliciously rare retro discoveries with special, lovingly-built edits and remixes of the heroes he themes his night upon in order to deliver spine-tingling atmosphere and maximum vibe. He has ‘re-directed’ everyone from Diana Ross and The Jacksons to Marvin Gaye (a majestic take on Mercy Mercy Me released this summer) and Curtis Mayfield, documenting these exclusive dedications on his official Soundcloud page, as well as posting live recordings of his electrifying Motown Party mixes.
Motown Party is as unique and beautifully realised a club experience as you’re likely to find today. DJ Reverend P, whose sweet soul-house licks in the studio with Alex Finkin and vocalist Jocelyn Mathieu – as Animal House – have sparked high-profile releases on Vega Records and further fuelled a reputation for quality groove, has the unique ability to tailor Motown Party to a wide variety of soulful requirements – Marvin Gaye tributes, Stevie Wonder specials and Levan jams are all possible.
It isn’t just Paris that’s swinging either. Motown Party is currently on international tour, DJ Reverend P delivering his unique and audacious brand of soulful creativity to an ever widening sweep of clubland. Playing everywhere this year from Switzerland to Hong Kong, Motown Party has grown real global appeal, wowing some of the world’s biggest clubs and promoters.
Motown Party transcends age and nationality, seducing Motown’s many fans before taking them deep down to the pivotal dancefloors of Seventies ‘melting pot’ New York - a magical time when the Paradise Garage ruled the roost; when clubbing was fun, and music was soul. We are lost in the moment - the everyday humdrum a distant memory. We are uplifted by Motown’s groove like never before – amazed, surprised and feverishly rocked to our senses. We are one – totally united on the dancefloor; an unstoppable force of togetherness. We are in a truly special place....
