Paris DJ Bambounou is one of my favourite selectors in the game.

I met him on the road and – since then – he’s been someone I’ve followed super closely. And I’ve grown to trust his judgement on tunes, clubs and other DJs to look out for. Now that I’m officially gearing up for the second Homework Tour, I’m in need of new mixes and new tunes to get the juices flowing. Seeing as Bambi’s coming along for all three of the dates, I got him to pick out five upstarts from his native Paris who are worth keeping an eye on. He’s even penned a little comment on each of them. Aside from providing some prime listening material, his roundup gives you a real idea of the amazing moment Paris is having right now.

See you at the Homework Tour! Bambounou is joining me for Leeds, Liverpool and Glasgow.
