Playin' 4 The City

Real Name:
Olivier Portal
Profile:
It’s been now 25 years that Olivier Portal has been Playin’ 4 the City.

Very versatile in the beginning, he has nurtured his productions while doing club residencies in Paris and Chicago, making his music all the more dancing and developing a very original touch drawing near to the sounds of Chi -Town and New Jersey. By the end of the 90’s, he collaborated with many DJ’s and producers such as DJ Deep, Julien Jabre and Franck Roger among others, thus gaining a real credibility and much respect from the underground Parisian house scene and the world at large.

I want his music in download form. It’s really good but it’s hard to get your hands on.

This easy listening sound that Mr. Portal creates, will take you to another dimension. Higly recommended producer!! Almost all the tracks are such a groovy, jazzy and deep vibe! Music where you make party or just have a chill! Olivier, Respect!!!
