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 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 "The recent soul/hip hop classic "Honey" by Erykah Badu gets the Grant Phabao reggae rework treatment to make it an instant reggae soul classic, sounding as if it was an original recorded 30 years ago in Kingston and the 9th Wonder production was the remix... "
"Parisdjs ексклузивно ни поднасят лежерен и мелодичен реге микс на Honey от Grant Phabao. Досега парчето съм слушал във версии на Dj Day, Aeon, Captain Planet, Little Brother, Clueless (dubstep) и кой ли не, но представената преработка попада сред най-добрите."
"Okay, so it’s the gazillionth remix of this tune,but its some tasty reggae styles..."

Dear Paris DJs,
I hope all is very well. My name is Simon Winkler and I'm working as the Music Co-Ordinator at the metropolitan radio station 3RRR in Melbourne, Australia, and also co-present the program Breaking & Entering I regularly check your excellent site for music updates and recently downloaded the Erykah Badu Honey remix by Grant Phabao which is great. If still possible, I'd love to request a high-quality mp3 version of the Erykah Badu remix, as I'd appreciate the chance to play this on my show and add it to the New Releases rack in the studio library for other presenters to access as well. Thanks very much in advance.
Best regards,
