Blog quotes :
"Another, perhaps my favourite remix of Honey. Dope"
"Fresh from Paris, this remix of Honey by Erykah Badu has a reggae vibe to it bought to you courtesy of Grant Phabao."
"In a move little short of genius, French DJ/Producer Grant Phabao has reggae’ed up Honey - rendering Badu's neo-soul track into a dead-ringer for the sound of sixties Kingston. The sort of thing that causes impromptu bumping and grinding, it’s free to download and you can check the vid. too - what's not to like? Click the link and drop some smooth moves! Heretic DJs who play with mp3s can even hit up parisdjs.com for a higher quality sound file"
"Grant Phabao: Parisan Dubmeister - Grant Phabao is a producer and DJ from Paris, France who puts out some heavy riddims inna di dub and roots tradition. Unfortunately, his cuts are quite difficult to come across and are mostly distributed in highly-limited 7″ pressings or featured as remixes on 12″s. Below are a few cuts of his that are simply outstanding. Most recent is his remix of Erykah Badu’s "Honey", next up is his reworking of "Uptight" by the legendary Stevie Wonder, and the final record is "Fever" featuring the mighty Lone Ranger of Studio One fame. Other vibes I have of his, but not listed here, are two killer Alice Russell remixes; "Humankind" (Tuff ‘n Uff Skank Remix feat. Lone Ranger) and "Seven Nation Army" (GP Remix). Definitely grab these slabs of pure fyah below and if you happen to have any other pressings of his, send them my way. It’d be much appreciated."
"I'm really late on this one, but it's a great addition to any DJ set, especially as a segue into a reggae set. You can pick it up at ParisDjs.com.

"Okay, so it’s the gazillionth remix of this tune,but its some tasty reggae styles..."
