Grant Phabao Remixed and Remixes vol 2

Grant Phabao - Remixed And Remixes Vol.2 (T.I.M.E.C.)

Many radio programmers and DJs enjoyed the previous volume of "Grant Phabao Remixed & Remixes", with its handful of hits and discoveries, and his 2005 single with The Lone Ranger and Carlton Livingston, "(Message To You) Rudie", which got played worldwide, up to Irie FM playlist in Jamaica. The feedback was simple: everyone agreed on Phabao's unique production skills, bringing back the original King Tubby sound with a modern twist. This second volume is as collectable as the first one (only 30 copies pressed!!), with even more mind-blowing reggae reworks than you could dream of.

The Procussions Grant Phabao Remix

The Procussions - Simple Song (Grant Phabao Remix)

The Procussions are top-of-the-notch L.A. hip hop, funky, old school, with plenty of sunshine, so we thought at Paris DJs headquarters that it could be a good idea to try and do a collaboration with them, that could also help promote their french tour. The band got into the idea right away and soon -thanks to the Internet- the french dubmeister Grant Phabao received some vocal parts to play with... A few days later a new reggae instrumental was born, wonderfully gracing The Procussions' track with skanking riffs, heavy bass, clavinets chops, echo, reverb and lots of percussion - Phabao style. This is hip hop/reggae mashing-up at his best, we're just plain proud to offer you this as a free download.

The Mackrosoft The Immortality Project Grant Phabao Remix

The Mackrosoft - The Immortality Project (Grant Phabao Remix)

This track is not for music categories, but for recipe books : take elements from a US West coast jazz/funk lounge number [For example, "The Immortality Project" by Seattle's funkateers The Mackrosoft]. Select the 70's groovy melody of the Fender Rhodes and wah-wah guitar, of course. Cherish the sax licks from multiple-man Skerik. Don't forget the organ stylings from former Beastie Boys collaborator Money Mark. Then get the whole thing drenched into deep dub territory by expert in sound manipulation Grant Phabao. Don't get lost into deep Studio One or Rhythm & Sound dub but instead keep a nice electro jazz funky vibe flowing. You can now call it a "remix"... and start spreading the news!

Grant Phabao Remixed and Remixes

Grant Phabao - Remixed And Remixes

You'll find here Grand Central Records' Jon Kennedy skanking like a Kingstonian, Bastard Jazz's Chronic Sonata in a rootsy deep dub dress, Pro-Zak Trax's Professor Oz in High-Fidelity dub, or Seattle's funkateers The Mackrosoft in a breakbeat jazz-funk stylee. They all got remixed by Grant Phabao and they loved it. Some of them also produced some groovy remixes in exchange, with Jon Kennedy fooling with Grant Phabao & The Lone Ranger's "Ethiopia" and Tru Thoughts/Bastard Jazz's Mawglee electrifying their "Fever" cover.

Attention all dub heads! Bastard Jazz is happy to present the first record in an upcoming series of strictly dubwise 45s. On The A Side, Canadian act Chronic Sonata delivers a rough and rugged crossover dub/downtempo cut with live drums, lots of delay, swirling guitar licks, and a deep bassline. On The B Side, Grant Phabao flips "Everyday" into a minimal, sparse dub cut that builds through the track. Naked drums and heavy bass with delayed skanks and vocal snippits. For fans of Rhythm + Sound / Basic Channel styles.

POPSANOVA Nao Vem Que Nao Tem

Popsanova - Nao Vem Que Nao Tem (Tu Veux Ou tu Veux Pas?) (The Joslyns & The Mighty Blunts Remixes)

This brazilian cover of Wilson Simonal's "Nao Vem Que Nao Tem" (as featured in the movie "City Of God") sets the stage of a brand new style: tropical jerk, a tasty cocktail of shake beats and 21st century swing, updated with the oh! so wet voice of Desiree Lachose and mexican electronics from Don Diego De La Grana. They share the bill as Popsanova...

Kojak - Stupid Jack (Ruffneck Skiank by Grant Phabao)

Stupid Jack (Ruffneck skiank by Grant Phabao) : Un remix de 3:36 signé Grant Phabao? Étonnant... Le monsieur nous a habitué à des 6-7 minutes bien tassés minimum, et encore, pour un single radio [j'ai sur CD-R un track de plus de 33 minutes de Grant Phabao!!!]. Est-ce en raison du chant en yahourt difficilement supportable sur la longueur des cinq versions du maxi? En tous cas Grant Phabao choisit une de ses voix (impénétrables) préférées: le dub. Le rocksteady dubwize, pour essayer d'être plus précis. Et finalement on adore aussi quand Grant Phabao fait dans la sobriété.
