remember we talked about design hostel generator operators newly opened property in paris in previous post? the chain is known for being connected to local urban culture, and so generator launched #soundofparis. it's a competition that would not only give budding talent, be it musicians, music producers or deejays, the opportunity to step into the limelight, but also win cash prizes, and perhaps more importantly, a one-to-one studio session with maison kitsuné icon and dj jerry bouthier and a gig at the #soundofparis party. well, the cards have been drawn a little while ago and the winners announced, so fast forward to thu - apr 16 [9pm-late] for the aformentioned party. it'll feature sets by the contest winners and monsieur jerry bouthier himself, and it's all happening at generator's fancy new outpost in the city of light. needless to say the event doubles as the design hostel's official opening party. see you on the dance floor, peeps! location: generator, 9-11 place du colonel fabien [canal st.-martin].
