Classic Album Review: Dimitri From Paris | After the Playboy Mansion

Slip into your silk PJs, light up your pipe and join your favourite bunny in the grotto.

This came out in 2002 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):

 


The French remix master revisits Hef’s crib in this two-disc sequel to 2000’s Night at the Playboy Mansion set.

As he did on that set, Dimitri Yerasimos digs in the crates for obscure vintage disco and soul from the ’70s and ’80s — we’re talking relative unknowns like Maze, Imagination, Tata Vega and Rinder and Lewis — which he seamlessly connects into a smoothly flowing gently grooving party soundtrack. Both discs mine a relaxed, midtempo house vein, though one purports to be more “uplifting” while the other is “laidback.” Whatever. Either way, you’re ready to slip into your pyjamas and silk housecoat, light up your pipe and join your favourite bunny in the grotto.
