Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1977 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol 18

Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1977 - Standards, Versions & Revamps Vol.18


1977 was the year of the Punk explosion, but it was also the year the famous Studio 54 opened in New York. Elvis Presley died during the summer, Marc Bolan followed in september, and "Saturday Night Fever" was released at the end of the year. On the albums front, besides the obvious P-Funk gems (Parliament, Bootsy Collins, Eddie Hazel), there were Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, The Clash,...

Grant Phabao presents RacecaR - One Free

Grant Phabao presents RacecaR - One Free (Digital Single, Paris DJs, 2016)


'One Free', the latest single extracted from RacecaR's upcoming 'A Healthy Obsession With Pétanque' album, sees the American MC laying a thick rap, moving on and around the beat, over a deep & dubby, slow & stripped-down early 80s dancehall style riddim from French producer and multi-instrumentalist Grant Phabao. The vibe is laidback, smokey, while tropical and hip. A pure stoner tune in...

Grant Phabao presents U-Brown - Rub A Dub Inna Di Dancehall

Grant Phabao presents U-Brown - Rub A Dub Inna Di Dancehall (Digital Single, Paris DJs, 2016)


U-Brown's unmistakeable deejay flow with a stylistic debt to the deejay godfather U-Roy is a delectation to hear voiced and mixed with Grant Phabao at the controls once again on this follow-up single: a heavy, bubbling, slow and fat, masterful riddim from the Parisian producer, on which the veteran deejay lays a a deep and sensual rub-a-dub toast. Hopefully both tunes will end up on a lovely 7...
