GregSky & Grant Phabao - La Danse Du Shadow (Digital Single, Paris DJs/Noble Art Records)



GregSky Grant Phabao La Danse Du Shadow

'La Danse Du Shadow' marks the beginning of a new series of releases for Grant Phabao and his Paris DJs label, with long-time collaborator & multi-cultural artist GregSky, and his newly-launched Noble Art Records label. Both artists have been producing music together for 15 years already, including a cult album, 'Meet The Joslyns', released on the T.I.M.E.C. label in 2004, and many saxophone featurings on some Grant Phabao tracks. It was high time those two over-productive Frenchmen started working on a collection of reggae and afrobeat music together, and 'La Danse Du Shadow' is just the first piece of a brand new puzzle, a surprising Roots Reggae number reminiscent of late 70s Serge Gainsbourg's 'Aux Armes et Cætera' cultural blend of French Chanson and Jamaican Reggae - with its deep instrumental dub version, 'Le Dub Du Shadow' , on the b-side for the spiritual souls out there. The series is also a step forward in a new direction for illustrator Ben Hito, who manages to astonish once again, with even more creative liberty than on the previous artworks he designed for Paris DJs, raising the bar with cherry blossoms and swallows circling a blue-eyed red boxer.

-------------FRENCH---------------
'La Danse Du Shadow' marque le début d'une nouvelle série de sorties pour Grant Phabao et son label Paris DJs, avec GregSky, collaborateur de longue date et artiste pluri-disciplinaire, et son label tout juste lancé, Noble Art Records. Les deux artistes produisent de la musique ensemble depuis déjà 15 années, incluant un album culte, 'Meet The Joslyns', sorti sur le label T.I.M.E.C. en 2004, et de nombreuses parties de saxophone sur des morceaux de Grant Phabao.

Il était temps pour ces deux Français sur-productifs de commencer à construire une collection de musiques reggae et afrobeat ensemble, et 'La Danse Du Shadow' n'est que la première pièce d'un tout nouveau puzzle, une suprise Reggae Roots évoquant le métissage Chanson Française/Reggae Jamaicain de Serge Gainsbourg de la fin des années 70, époque 'Aux Armes et Cætera' - accompagné d'un instrumental dub en face B pour les âmes spirituelles.

Cette série est aussi un pas en avant dans une nouvelle direction pour l'affichiste Ben Hito, qui réussit à nous étourdir une fois de plus, avec une liberté de créativité encore plus grande que sur ses précédents designs pour Paris DJs. Il parvient à élever encore le niveau avec des fleurs de cerisier et des hirondelles autour d'un boxeur rouge aux yeux bleutés.
