Shipping costs :

Don't forget to add the shipping costs to your sum. We tried to calculate them fair.

 

Paris DJs will organise for the vinyl release date a special event at the Betino's record store in Paris. You'll be able to get your records directly, have them signed, meet the crew, etc. - and of course avoid the shipping costs. Don't add any shipping costs if you'll be in Paris in July...

Allocation of funds

Paris DJs have funded entirely all the music production, from composition & recording up until mix and mastering (or co-funded with some artists/labels on some co-productions). Paris DJs has also funded all the visual artworks, in collaboration with Ben Hito's KlassAffair society.  

 

The 10.000€ will be used, in part, to fund the pressing of vinyl records :  

 

 - Six 45s, pressed at 300 copies each

Including : mastering, lacquers, conception and printing of the 4 colors centers, test-pressings, conception and printing of the 4-color "Paris DJs Soundsystem" sleeves, for a total cost of 7200€

 

 - One collector boxset which will gather all six 45s together, with only 100 copies produced

Conception and printing of the boxset will cost us 2400€

 

- One double vinyl LP, pressed at 500 copies

This includes mastering, lacquers, conception and printing of the 4 colors centers, test-pressings, conception and printing of the 4-color sleeve and liner, cellophaning, mastering and the whole follow-up process for a total cost of 5000€

 

- 100 "Paris DJs Soundsystem" T-shirts

For a cost of 800€

 

- A series of 4 different "Paris DJs Soundsystem" posters

For a printing cost of 1000€ (already funded by Paris DJs)

 

- Shipping costs worldwide For an approximate cost of 2.000€

 

That's a total cost of 17.000€.

If everything goes according to plan, 12.000€ will be funded by this campaign.

We'll have 5.000€ left to find - through record stores pre-orders, complentary to this crowdfunding campaign.

 

Of course, the more you'll support us, the less we'll need the traditional music business way.

As Louis Armstrong used to say: "our music is a secret order" !
