Grant Phabao presents The Lone Ranger - The Iphone Connection (digital single, Paris DJs)



Grant Phabao The Lone Ranger The Iphone Connection

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 !

Press Release :
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.

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.
