Grant Phabao presents RacecaR - One Two One Two (Digital Single, Paris DJs, 2015)



Grant Phabao presents RacecaR - One Two One Two

RacecaR started working with the French producer Grant Phabao approximatively one year ago, with a simple concept in mind: exploring some new rare grooves of reggae, ska, afrofunk, soul and jazz, on which he would try rhyming and rapping - uncharted waters in terms of tempo for a boom-bap aficionado. Here's the 4th stop of his voyage in a sea of styles. RacecaR has now to face a psychedelic funk whirlwind with heavy stompin' & swingin' beats! Borrowing its chorus from Canadian MC & friend Jeff Spec, 'One Two One Two' sees our MC in great shape, delivering expertly crafted verses one after the other.

Press Release :
Chicago MC (now Paris-based) RacecaR has been recording and touring quite a lot in France these years. With bands Afro Latin Vintage Orchestra, Dafuniks or Sax Machine, with producers Etienne de la Sayette, Grant Phabao or Lawkyz, with beatmakers Asagaya, Blanka, DJ Suspect & Doc TMK, ICBM Son Of A Pitch or Soul Square… for sure we're missing a few other cool cats in that list, but you get the point: every musician who meets RacecaR over here understands very quickly how cool the man is, how tight his flow goes, how masterfully his rhymes are delivered, and how in any kind of context he's able to fit in with style.

RacecaR started working with the French producer Grant Phabao approximatively one year ago, with a simple concept in mind: exploring some new rare grooves of reggae, ska, afrofunk, soul and jazz, on which he would try rhyming and rapping - uncharted waters in terms of tempo for a boom-bap aficionado!

Summer 2014 things shot off with an afro-funk-hip-hop monster, 'Return Of The Dig-Fu', followed in the fall by another smashing hip hop/funk hybrid, 'Rock Your Boat', and close to the end of the year, by a third single, 'We Do Anything', exploring a different blend with the lyricist's groovy rhymes recorded over one of Grant Phabao's heavy one drop reggae riddims, and featuring Parisian activist Taiwan MC on guest vocals.

The voyage in a sea of styles is far from over though, as RacecaR has now to face a psychedelic funk whirlwind with heavy stompin' & swingin' beats! Borrowing its chorus from Canadian MC & friend Jeff Spec, 'One Two One Two' sees our MC in great shape, delivering expertly crafted verses one after the other. It seems as if he could even confront a tropical storm now… but that's a story to be told on Paris DJs later on.

Reggae comes from Mento, Ska and Rocksteady. When Reggae invented dub and toasting, it gave America the technology and ideas which led to Hip Hop's emceeing (later known as rapping) and scratching. Thus Hip Hop was born. Even Gangsta rap came from Dancehall — both speaking about the violence from...
