Grant Phabao presents The Lone Ranger - Take Her To Jamaica Weh The Reggae Come From feat. Carlton Livingston (Digital Single, Paris DJs)



Grant Phabao The Lone Ranger Take Her To Jamaica Weh The Reggae Come From  Carlton Livingston

Jamaican rub-a-dub deejay The Lone Ranger and singer Carlton Livingston are reinventing themselves with an eye toward the past on this brand new Grant Phabao roots reggae riddim, bringing back memories of breezy, sun-filled days on the island. The French producer delivers an intense and profound instrumental, a cover of Ken Boothe's 'Artibella' from 1965, pure roots reggae music that could have been recorded decades ago in Jamaica by the greats, Bunny Lee, King Tubby, Lee Perry, etc. Close your eyes and listen carefully, you won't hear a one-man musical army trying desperately to add layers over layers. Instead you'll perceive a full band, all playing together an incredibly catchy melody on a funky one drop rhythm - a welcome addition to the ever growing catalog of 21st century roots music from the Paris DJs label, with a stunning 45 black green and gold artwork by French illustrator Ben Hito.

Press Release :
Jamaican rub-a-dub deejay The Lone Ranger and singer Carlton Livingston are reinventing themselves with an eye toward the past on this brand new Grant Phabao roots reggae riddim, bringing back memories of breezy, sun-filled days on the island.

The two Carribean rhymesters are bright, talented, and funny people who love being Jamaican. In this new single recorded at Paris DJs' studios in the French capital at the beginning of 2013, they express their love of reggae, Jamaican reggae - this spiritual, fun, unifying music, one of the greatest assets of the country (with the beaches and the jerk chicken of course).

'Take Her To Jamaica Weh The Reggae Come From' is a new instant classic, a combination of The Lone Ranger deep and growling rub-a-dub verses, filled to the cup with the "yeah", "tell about it", "boom", "slang dang dang", "how you mean" and other "boom shack" slurs, with the sweet and soulful chorus from Carlton Livingston, the kind that gets stuck in the head and never leaves, bringing smiles to listeners' faces everytime.

French producer Grant Phabao delivers an intense and profound instrumental, a cover of Ken Boothe's 'Artibella' from 1965, pure roots reggae music that could have been recorded decades ago in Jamaica by the greats, Bunny Lee, King Tubby, Lee Perry, etc. Close your eyes and listen carefully, you won't hear a one-man musical army trying desperately to add layers over layers. Instead you'll perceive a full band, all playing together an incredibly catchy melody on a funky one drop rhythm - think The Sound Dimension, The Aggrovators, or The Roots Radics!

A welcome addition to the ever growing catalog of 21st century roots music from the Paris DJs label, with a stunning 45 black green and gold artwork by French illustrator Ben Hito.

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...
