(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2015-06-01

Grant Phabao is an internationally-renowned French engineer and producer, best known for his work remixing tracks from everyone from Lee Fields to Brownout to Alice Russell… He got enlisted by ATOMGA, a 10-piece afrofunk collective from Denver, Colorado, to mix & master their new album 'Black Belt', and to remix a track of his choosing from it. He put an original one drop/reggae feel on perhaps the most complex song on the album, 'Alaskan Pipeline'. Grab a free 128k MP3 of this remix below, or download the whole album on bandcamp.

Grant Phabao presents Quench Aid and John Wayne - Don't Go Girls

Grant Phabao presents Quench Aid and John Wayne - Don't Go Girls
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2013-06-18

From the mid-80s to the early 90s, Jamaican vocalist Quench Aid was making big waves in this early digital reggae era, putting out a slew of classic vintage dancehall singles, including the in demand burial tune 'Beat Down The Fence' on Vena Recordings. His style is strong and sweet, similar to Jah Cure - who arrived on the scene 10 years after Quench Aid. A wicked and severely underrated singer!

John Wayne is a Jamaican dancehall deejay who's bigger hit was the wadadadeng-ish 'Call The Police' from 1985, on the 'Sleng Teng' riddim. In 1983 he recorded an album called 'Boogie Down', produced by Bunny Lee. Also an in-demand sound engineer, he worked on Sugar Minott's 1981 albums 'Meet The People In A Lovers Dubbers Style' and 'African Girl'

Quench Aid and John Wayne are original dancehall killah artists, they collaborated together in 2004 for a 45 released on the small Bam Salute label from France, 'Don't Go Girls', now re-produced and re-mixed by the King producer Grant Phabao, who's roots reggae and ska recordings have been ruling the Jamaican music world for many years now. Enjoy this free download, a glorious and dynamic reggae combination all about the four-letter word L.O.V.E.!!

Grant Phabao presents Horace Andy - Talk 'bout Peace

Grant Phabao presents Horace Andy - Talk 'bout Peace
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2013-02-28

On the first notes you'll recognize instantly Horace Andy's falsetto vocals. The Jamaican singer has been gracing all of Massive Attack's albums so far, granting him a worldwide and long-term recognition. The reggae fans will maybe more fondly remember his early and roots reggae hits from the sixties and the seventies, the legendary 'In The Light/In The Light Dub' albums from 1977, or his dancehall classics from the early 80s. And All shall rejoice, with the offering of this free download, a rare Rasta song from the great Horace Andy recorded in 2004, produced and re-mixed by the unstoppable Grant Phabao a few years later. 'Talk 'bout Peace' is an outstanding conscious tune that has been kept hidden in Paris DJs' vaults for too long until now.

(Free MP3 download on ParisDJs.com) 2012-10-19

Pompidoo (not to be confused with similarly named deejay Prince Pompidou who recorded in the early 70's) is the original rock stone voiced Jamaican reggae and dancehall deejay who worked King Jammy's sound system and was able to make his voice sound like a synthesizer. He was most popular in Jamaica in the late 1980s, with a series of singles including 'Governor General', 'The DJ With The Rockstone Voice' or 'Synthesizer Voice'. After no new release during the last 5 years, Pompidoo is now back on the airwaves with this stunning new version of his 2004 single 'Come Ya Fi Talk', originally recorded for the French Bam Salute label, remastered and dressed with a brand new riddim by roots reggae master Grant Phabao! An original raggamuffin monster tune, strictly rub-a-dub, that's sure to rock the modern dancehalls anytime!!

(Free MP3 download on ParisDJs.com) 2012-09-19

The original Soul/Funk track Moody Blues was engineered by Lotek at his Counter Clockwise Studios in Melbourne, Australia, who posted a stripped-down version on Soundcloud, with just guitar and Florelie Escano on vocals, asking is some remixers were interested. We managed to connect and Grant Phabao ended up producing this suprising and breezy Reggae/Afro/Blues remix which you'll find on Florelie's upcoming limited CD out october 17th 2012.

Grant Phabao presents The Lone Ranger - Usain Bolt The Puma

Grant Phabao presents The Lone Ranger - Usain Bolt The Puma
(Free MP3 download on ParisDJs.com) 2012-08-03

After Usain Bolt's heart breaking false start, which left him disqualified from the 2011 World Athletics Championships, Jamaican deejay The Lone Ranger and French producer Grant Phabao decided to record Usain Bolt The Puma, an homage song to Jamaica's greatest sprinter (and, obviously, his sponsor).

The song starts on a killer chorus hook before slipping into an unstoppable flow of no less surprising verses, filled with wiki-accuracy, wicked rhymes and dynamic rub-a-dub gimmicks. The reggae groove itself is relentless, tight and bumpy, like 70s Jamaica sounding heavy.

While chillin' with Jamaican singers The Lone Ranger, Jim Brown and Carlton Livingston a few weeks ago at Paris DJs studios, Djouls and Grant Phabao asked them what they should do with the song, with the 2012 Olympic Games happening very fast and the buzz around Usain Bolt growling like thunder… The Jamaicans all replied instantly that the track should be put up and spreading, that all the "but what if he doesn't win this time?" doubts should be erased because there was "no way" he was gonna lose. Being asked "how do you know that?", the Paris DJs operators were offered the most simple answer: "because he is Usain Bolt".


Singer The Lone Ranger was the number one soundsystem deejay between 1977 and 1981 on the island of Jamaica. A 100% authentic Jamaican legend from the big years of Studio One Records, The Lone Ranger has been bringing back the golden years of rub-a-dub lately with the Soul Stereo Soundsystem in clubs, with Jamaica All Stars on stage at the Garance Reggae Festival 2012, or in the studio with Grant Phabao, one of the rare producers to have restored the sound of 1970s' Jamaica.

Based in Paris, Grant Phabao works with many reggae legends, but also international artists such as George Clinton (Parliament/Funkadelic), David Byrne (Talking Heads), Chuck D. (Public Enemy), Richard Dorfmeister (Tosca/Kruder & Dorfmeister), Quantic (Tru Thoughts) or Tony Allen (Fela's Afrika 70)… His tracks and remixes are played by the biggest DJs, including David Guetta (!).

Paris DJs are an international music bureau operating from Paris (as its name says), which offers customized services to projects associating music and brands. Their thematic podcasts have already been downloaded by more than 2.6 millions of cybernauts. Paris DJs are currently working on the release of their first compilation, Dis Is Good For You (on an Afro/Tropical/Reggae tip), while developping George Clinton's upcoming website with amazing French graphic designer Benito, who cooked this beautiful art cover and a few other Usain Bolt paintings for the occasion...

J-san And The Big Mean - Moving Too Fast (Grant Phabao Remix)

J-san And The Big Mean - Moving Too Fast (Grant Phabao Remix
(Free MP3 download on ParisDJs.com) 2012-05-09

Brooklyn-based soul, dub, electronic artist/producer Jay Spaker aka J-san's musical journey has been a shape shifting experience spanning 20 years of soul & roots music. Son of radical vietnam veteran father & Okinawan mother J-san was raised on the road, living with artists, musicians, ganja growers and hustlers. He was an original member of John Brown's Body in the 90s, then went on to form dub rock/jam band J-san & The Analogue Sons during the the next decade, a band described as Bob Marley meets M.I.A. produced by Manu Chao… After a few featurings, including vocalist on 10ft Ganja Plant's album Bush Rock released in 2009, J-san has launched two new bands, Double Tiger, an electronic dub / dubstep project who's just released the No Give Up single on Hydra Records Japan, and J-san and The Big Mean, a rock/reggae/afro project fusing the rhythms of Afrobeat and R&B with the sounds of Dub and Soul to make your body move. When their first afro-reggae single Moving Too Fast reached Paris DJs' shores, we contacted J-san right away, offering him to try and have Grant Phabao dress the song with pure Jamaican roots vibes. The man was already a Paris DJs follower and we hooked up instantly. This deadly rough & tough remix is the another step for Paris DJs in their ongoing collaborations with brothers from Brooklyn and we can hope that J-san and Grant Phabao will do a proper EP together at some point!

Nostalgia 77 - Simmerdown feat. Josa Peit (Grant Phabao Remix feat. Marco Benevento)

Nostalgia 77 feat. Josa Peit - Simmerdown (Grant Phabao Remix feat. Marco Benevento)
(Free MP3 download on ParisDJs.com) 2011-07-26

Released early 2011, Simmerdown, featuring stunning vocals from Josa Peit, was the first single to be lifted from the latest Nostalgia 77 album, The Sleepwalking Society, released late March 2011. We've been active supporters of Nostalgia 77's measureless talent since day one and some of you might remember the reggae remix our resident producer Grant Phabao did on N77's Seven Nation Army cover with Alice Russell… It was high time to try and rework a new Nostalgia 77 track and we had the chance to get a visit from Marco Benevento, one of our favorite keyboards players along with John Medeski and Jackie Mittoo. Well you put musicians in a studio, what happens? They play together, so Marco ended playing organ and then clavinet for a reggae remix of Simmerdown Phabao was working on… This track was hidden in our closet for a year, and when we learned that Nostalgia 77 was coming on play in Paris on February 16th at La Bellevilloise, we offered his label, Tru Thoughts, to put it up for free as a virtual release on Paris DJs. You won't hear this kind of artists combination anywhere else so we hope you'll enjoy the unique groove and spirit in there. And we hope to see you tonite (feb 16) at la Bellevilloise!

Grant Phabao & The Lone Ranger - The Iphone Connection

Grant Phabao presents The Lone Ranger - The Iphone Connection
(Digital Single/Free 128k MP3 download on ParisDJs.com) Paris DJs PARISDJS001-D, 2011-11-04

The Macintosh and its Finder application were revolutionnary for the way we create. Then one day Napster happened, soon followed by AudioGalaxy and many others. While the big music business was struggling with the limit of its ecosystem and the paradigm that had come with the use of mp3 files, Steve Jobs changed the way we consumed music with the iPod and the iTunes music store. Soon after that, he changed the way we consume information with the iPhone.

"The iPhone Connection" song is a tribute to the co-founder and CEO of Apple who lost his battle with pancreatic cancer this summer.
It was recorded at Paris DJs studios just a few days before Steve Jobs passed away.
Jamaican DJ The Lone Ranger is on vocal duties with French dubmeister Grant Phabao at the controls & playing all instruments.

The Lone Ranger is one of Jamaica's most influential early dancehall DJs. He was twice voted N°1 deejay on the island, in 1979 and 1980. He helped pioneer a newly rhythmic, on-the-beat rhyming style that led DJ toasting into the modern age, and punctuated his lyrics with bizarre exclamations and sound effects ("bim" and "ribbit" were his favorites) that made him perhaps the most imaginative stylist of his time.
He had originally recorded The Walkman Connection way back in 1984 (on "DJ Daddy" / Techniques), now fully updated to 2011 as The Iphone Connection ! This is not a remix of Steve Jobs' speeches or commercials, we did it our way, creating an original and uplifting song.

Take a listen and share with your friends. Buy it on iTunes. Play it on your iPhone.

RIP Steve Jobs.

Tribute To Gil Scott-Heron - A Place For You (Grant Phabao Remix)
(Free MP3 download on ParisDJs.com) 2011-06-16

Gil Scott-Heron left us at the end of May. His bluesology, black American music and message marked us forever. Sandra Nkake and Ji Dru have wrote and recorded in one night an homage piece, A Place For You!. Joined by a bunch of friends who felt as much concerned as they were, on a riff from Marvin Gaye's Inner City Blues, they sing a chorus tribute to Scott-Heron and borrow a text extracted from I Think I'll Call It Morning. The original track was mixed by Blackjoy, with remixes from Mark de Clive-Lowe, Doctor L, Loik Dury, Eric Legnini, Jeff Sharel feat. Karl The Voice, DJ Oil or Vadim Vernay (all available here). Oh! and of course from your favorite soundmaster and reggae producer Grant Phabao, who spectacularly manages to take the song to Kingston, Jamaica - but if you're a regular Paris DJs listener, you should be used to it by now...

The Man is gone, the message stays - Sandra Nkake and Ji Dru

Our good ol' friend and doublebass player Lawkyz has just launched a new project, Versus, between hip hop, jazz, funk and blaxploitation. The band is playful and fun, sounding like early stuff from The Herbaliser with a distininguished French taste for Jazz musings. Their album will be out january 2012.

Meanwhile, they've asked many of their friends for remixes and the n°1 reggae producer worldwide, Grant Phabao, who had already worked with Lawkyz in the past on some still unreleased tracks with Amayo from Antibalas, agreed to put his magic hands on the Mr Blue piece. The result is astounding as always, Versus are immediately transported to Jamaican coasts and you'll be breakin' to hip hop while bouncing to reggae at the same time with a big smile on your face!!!

Gimme gimme gimme some o'that... Reggay reggay! The vibe he received from the fine people of N.A.S.A. (Squeak E.

Kinny - Forgetting To Remember (Grant Phabao Remix)

Kinny - Forgetting To Remember (Grant Phabao Remix)
(Exclusive MP3 download on ParisDJs.com) 2010-03-07

Kinny – aka Caitlin Simpson – was born and raised in Canada and has a mixture of Jamaican, Native Canadian Indian, French and Swedish heritage. She sings jazz, reggae and soul for Brighton's Tru Thoughts label, on which she released two albums, Forgetting To Remember (2005, with Espen Horne), and Idle Forest of Chit Chat (2009, with Souldrop, TM Juke, Unforscene, Hint, Diesler, the Quantic Soul Orchestra and Nostalgia 77!). Her 2008 single Enough Said with the QSO was a huge hit in our books.

Grant Phabao ranks among the greatest multi-instrumentists/producers of his time. After 2 dub albums (as Tnargoabapah), 4 thematic albums with the T.I.M.E.C. collective, and 4 reggae albums with Jamaican veterans The Lone Ranger, Carlton Livingston, The Jays and The Silvertones, he's now hard at work with fellow Paris-based musical genius Doctor L on a series of collaborative concept albums for the brand new Colored-Inc. label (The Black Cat, Down By The River Side, One Foot In Jail).

Here's Kinny and Grant Phabao virtual meeting, featuring the songstress' unique soulful vocals (taken from the a capella version of Forgetting To Remember), drenched into Jamaican roots grooves courtesy of the one and only french dubmeister. Play it... and then play it again - this is music that doesn't age!

Lyrics Born - I Like It, I Love It (Grant Phabao Remix)
Lyrics Born - I Like It, I Love It (Grant Phabao Remix)
(Exclusive MP3 download on ParisDjs.com) 2009-08-13

When Berkeley hip hop meets Jamaican reggae...

Pressure keeps on rising for the upcoming releases of Grant Phabao's three (!) new albums with The Lone Ranger, Carlton Livingston and The Jays (on his own label T.I.M.E.C. co-run with Djouls and Captain Detendu)... The french dubmeister offers here a bouncy reggae rework of I Like It, I Love It, taken from last year's hit album Everywhere At Once (released on Quannum/ANTI). It's kind of a cousin of the N.A.S.A. remix he did earlier this year (featuring David Byrne and Chuck D.!) - all party-style with its rolling drum breaks and hookish chorus-like lyrics all along! A certified floor filler already tested and approved by fellow DJ Erik Rug at is famous WaxGroove nights.

More Grant Phabao remixes to be released and/or podcasted soon for Tosca, Diesler feat. Laura Vane, Antipop Consortium, Le Damn Dog, Ocote Soul Sounds (all official ones!)...

Michael Jackson - Rockin' Robin (Grant Phabao Remix)
Michael Jackson - Rockin' Robin (Grant Phabao Remix)
(Exclusive MP3 download on ParisDjs.com) 2009-07-21

Rockin' Robin is a 1958 song by Bobby Day. The single was Day's only hit single, becoming a No. 2 Billboard Hot 100 hit. The song was covered by The Hollies on their first album in 1964 and would be revived as a single again in 1972 by the teenaged Michael Jackson as his second single release on Motown. Jackson took his version to number two on the U.S. pop singles chart that year. The french dubmeister Grant Phabao pays here his due tribute to the king of pop, with a reggae remix of this pop/rhythm and blues cover of a fifties song - rockin' the dancehall and burnin' one for the man!

Erykah Badu - Soldier (Grant Phabao remix)
(Exclusive MP3 download on ParisDjs.com) 2009-07-03

Grant Phabao's list of remixes is becoming months after months quite a treat, and we keep on feeding him with cool big hitters a cappelas to work his skank and dub magic on. George Clinton, Stevie Wonder, Erykah Badu, AC/DC (!), Q-Tip and Cee-Lo all got their proper rework, offered for free in remixed form, here on Paris DJs. BUT Q-Tip got the exclusive Grant Phabao treatment twice and we didn't want Erykah Badu (one of the most wonderful American voices of our time) to be jealous, so here's a second reggae take on a track from the New AmErykah Part.1 album. As usual, our friend and neighbour Erik Rug tells us he successfully tested the track on the floor and 100 percent supports the roots Jamaican vibe coupled with the heavy boombastic production skills from the french dubmeister.

Big Daddy Kane vs Connie Price & The Keystones - Give A Demonstration Part.2 (Grant Phabao Remix)
Big Daddy Kane vs Connie Price and The Keystones - Give A Demonstration Part.2 (Grant Phabao Remix)
(Exclusive MP3 download on ParisDjs.com) 2009-06-19

Connie Price and the Keystones began as a recording project for Stones Throw's Now-Again label involving Dan Ubick (Breakestra, Madlib's Sound Directions) and Todd M. Simon (Macy Gray, Antibalas, El Michels Affair). Combining elements of soul, afro beat, dub reggae, late 60's/early 70's film scores, and psychedelic rock and jazz into a soundtrack for the best film you've never seen. After the superb Wildflowers album on Now-Again in 2004, Connie Price and the Keystones joined forces with Big Daddy Kane in 2007 for an exclusive 12-inch in the Scion A/V series, revisiting the classic Big Daddy Kane track Give A Demonstration with new vocals from the smooth operator himself, over some heavy badass funk. The vinyl is quite rare and you'll have to pay 40 Euros now to get it... You won't find this track on their Tell Me Something soundtrack-inspired hip hop album from 2008, but, hopefully, the track will appear on the upcoming new full length Connie Price and the Keystones are currently in the studio working on with Big Daddy Kane. Look out for this new piece of NY funk/hip hop hybrid to appear at the end of the year... Meanwhile here's an exclusive new rework of this rare track, taylored-dressed into party-skanking reggae by our french dubmeister Grant Phabao. A smashing hit, again!? What do YOU think?

Baby Charles - Hardman To Please (Grant Phabao Remix)
Baby Charles - Hardman To Please (Grant Phabao Remix)
(Exclusive MP3 download on ParisDjs.com) 2009-06-13

During the last two years Brighton based deep funk sensation Dionne Charles has risen to quite a cult status. Her first album with her band Baby Charles was among the finest things to happen in Funk in 2008, supported by the likes of Snowboy, Keb Darge, Jazzman Gerald, Monk One, Andy Smith and Mark Lamarr... we even managed to play their Artic Monkeys cover in an afro mix on the ParisDJs podcast!

She also appeared, among others, on Black Grass' fantastic III album (Catskills Records), on The New Mastersounds instant classic LP Plug & Play (One Note Records) and more recently on Soopasoul's superb Twin Stix album (Japaleno Records).

Simultaneously tight but loose, heavy but soulful and dirty, Baby Charles' funky music is indeed beautiful and thanks to Nick at Record Kicks we're proud to present this soulful ska dressing of Hardman to Please by the french dubmeister, Grant Phabao! Baby Charles are currently in the studio recording the new album which is expected for March 2010. They plan to blast everyone out of this cosmos with a whole bunch of new killer songs. We hope there will be another song to reggae-remix in there so that a nice Baby Charles reggae 45 might be pressed in the future...

(Exclusive MP3 download on ParisDjs.com) 2009-05-30

The mighty Grant Phabao, who's all about bringing back the original King Tubby sound with a modern twist, injects some perfect-for-a-Friday irie type of vibes into N.A.S.A.'s Money feat. David Byrne, Chuck D, Ras Congo, Seu Jorge and Z-Trip.
In doing so, the dub master successfully turns this big big choon into a laid back, smooth grooving 100% Reggae Jam. Enjoy! (knewjack on Squeak E Clean's blog)

This is an official remix co-produced by N.A.S.A. and T.I.M.E.C. (Grant Phabao and Djouls's label), available for licensing. Expect a CD release thru N.A.S.A./Anti- Records (on a upcoming remixes compilation) and a vinyl release thru T.I.M.E.C./Superfly Records distribution (on an upcoming Grant Phabao remixes compilation 12 inch)...

The Herbaliser - Can't Help This Feeling (Grant Phabao Remix)
(Exclusive MP3 download on ParisDjs.com) 2009-05-23

Thanks to our resident DJ Soulist who booked The Herbaliser recently at La Maroquinerie in Paris, I had the chance to meet Ollie Teeba in the backstage and tell him about an upcoming reggae remix of Can't Help This Feeling that we were preparing for the Paris DJs virtual releases collection. He was really enthousiastic about it, saying the track could really work well in reggae mode and giving us his benediction... So here's the finished thing, with rumbling horns and skanking hooks, taylor-fit for all shaking dancefloors - another Grant Phabao instant hit!.. but I guess you're used to that kind of standard now.

Grant Phabao reworks 'Dude', Beenie Man and Ms. Thing's dancehall hit from 2003, into uptempo reggae with deep skanks.

Mr Vegas feat. Alozade and Hollow Point - Under Me Sensi (Grant Phabao Remix)
(Exclusive MP3 download on ParisDjs.com) 2009-03-27

The Grant Phabao recipe :
Take a smokin' dancehall hit, a true ganja song. Remove the instrumental crust, usually a digital riddim without much musicanship in it. Take the vocal part and dress it carefully with a brand new 70's reggae skanking riddim, with Jamaican heavy drumming and delicate percussions, guitar licks and melodious organ chords. Don't hesitate to spread a good slice of breaks into the beats. Leave it to rest for a few months. The final cooking part consist in a few days of getting that huge booming sound that goes with reggae. Spice with bits of echo and delay. And finally, don't forget to serve the resulting classic herb tune with an already fired-up big bammy!

(Exclusive MP3 download on ParisDjs.com) 2009-03-06

Jon Kennedy learned to play the drums at the age of 12 or 13 and started to record his own crazy tracks on a 4 track straight away.. Before that he was listening to War Of The Worlds OST and my brothers rock music, strumming along to them on his guitar, Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, Kiss etc. After 3 really cool trip-hop-like albums on Tru Thoughts and Grand Central Records, he'll release a new album, '14', this summer on Organik Recordings. Expect Rock, Hip Hop, Soul, Funk... all of a heavy nature from the drum perspective. This skanking (and exclusive) Grant Phabao remix takes a song from his previous "Useless Wooden Toys" album into Jamaican territories. The Bristol beatmaster dressed with dreads... Enjoy!

(Exclusive MP3 download on ParisDjs.com) 2009-02-27

For those left who don't know who the guy is, Q-Tip is a former member of the famous hip hop band A Tribe Called Quest. He's just released a new solo album, which is quite good even for some major company shit. He'll be playing in Paris on March, 9th at l'Elysee Montmartre, but the show is already sold out. If you haven't got your ticket already then you haven't been ripped of 44 Euros (yes you've read it: 44 fucking Euros). We're kind enough to appease any hyped feelings of yours with a free and exclusive remix of the single Q-Tip had released just before his "Renaissance" album. It's called "Work It Out" and was only available as a promo 12 inch released in 2007. Now here's the Grant Phabao reggae remix - another instant neo-retro classic, as if recorded decades ago at Studio One in Jamaica...

Stevie's magic voice on Phabao's 'new vintage' 70s reggae production works so well we decided to share this track with you - Reggae Soul at its best!

The Procussions - Simple Song (Grant Phabao Remix)
The Procussions - Simple Song (Grant Phabao Remix)
(12" virtual release/MP3 Podcast on ParisDJs.com) Rawkus/T.I.M.E.C. TIMEC122, 2006-11-14

Review :
In those hard times when government individuals thrive more and more on the poor, it's really nice to meet educated and involved artists. The Procussions are that kind of people, nice, intelligent and with something to say, without ever losing their natural cool. This is rare enough to be pointed out...
Their latest album, "5 Sparrows For 3 Cents", was released earlier this year in the US but only in november 2006 in Europe. It's 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, who recently reworked some George Clinton, Lee McDonald, Ty or Alice Russell tracks, 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. Get it while it's hot and don't miss the rest of the tour (see dates below).
