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.
"I see T.I.M.E.C. and their really incredible melting-pot of latinized electronics as the cheesy Ninja Tune of Brazil" (J. Smithson, Professor of Brazilian & Afro-Cuban musicology, Yale University). Everything begun with our national Captain Détendu travelling to Brazil in spring 2002. There he met with the biggest jam pop band from San Pedro, Los Lobes, true international stars who came and join the team of T.I.M.E.C., the collective from Paris. Together they create a new recipe, greedy and spicy, based on Brazilian, Afro-cuban rythms, roots sounds, but also sharp samples, harmful sequencers and utmost, a double-cheese extra... Back in Paris, Captain Détendu met with his T.I.M.E.C. bunch to introduce his musical brainwave and sharpen, in the La Pinède studio in Paris, the cream (*) of electro-latino (also called Brachi music) to bring you sun, bossa, and carnaval. Therefore, the artist of the T.I.M.E.C. collective, as real chamber capoeran, have discovered the ultimate formula: unrestrained music + out-of-step humour = maximum sunshine.
